Lots of people have fears. I know several people that won't walk across the Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls because they are afraid of heights. Other people have no issues with heights but are afraid of spiders, or sharks, etc. I know several people that are afraid of clowns. Doctors and Scientists say a fear of clowns is called coulrophobia.

Coulrophobia is a result of not knowing who lies behind the excessive makeup, red nose and hair color. And clowns can also break social norms, their mask makes them able to do things that others can’t do socially, like interacting with unknown people at ease.

I wouldn't say I have a fear of clowns unless I think about the clown in Steven Kings, "It".

Are you afraid of clowns? If not, what are you afraid of?
