An Excess of Phobias and Manias

Compiled and Edited by John G. Robertson

The Greek element phobia refers to an irrational, intense fear or terror of a person, object, situation, sensation, experience, thought, or stimulus event that is not shared by the consensual community and is thus out of proportion to any danger.

There are also applications of phobia that refer to a strong dislike or hatred for something or someone based on one's fear.

Meanwhile, there are also opposites of phobias which may be identified as manias that refer to specific mental disorder or obsessive preoccupations with something; such as, a madness, frenzy; obsession, compulsion, fascination, or an abnormal desire for or with something or someone.

There are also references to excessive enthusiasm or fondness for something that could be related to a variety of psychiatric disorders; such as, frenzy, hysteria, and delirium.
