What is the cause of phobias?

Phobia is on of the most commonly used nominalisations. Spiders, mice, snakes, flying insects, dogs are all common objects of phobias. However, all phobias are all rooted in anxiety.

 Phobias have been referred to as an irrational fear of a particular thing, however fear is totally rational in our minds. Everyone should have a fear of something or we couldn’t survive.

The imagination is an extremely powerful thing, the same imagination that can picture our life if we won the lottery can equally make a spider the size of a house specifically target them.
