#1: Trypophobia Author: mattias PostPosted: Sat 09 Mar, 2013
    ----
Trypophobia isn't really a recognised phobia, but that's not the point. I have it, I guess, but I think "phobia" is a bit too strong a word (in my case, at least), it's more of extreme uncomfortable sensation, goosebumps and general " overspannen " reaction.

Warning! the following images may make you skip lunch and give you the heebie jeebies! And if you are going to search more about this thing, be warned that there are many really gross pictures online (some are even photoshopped, but they still make me feel weird).

That said, I find the strangest part of this "phobia" is that I can't stop looking for more pictures nuu it's a strange combination of repulsion and fascination....

So, anyone heard of this and/or has it? How much do the following images make your skin crawl? The organic ones are the wrost for me, I imagine it on my skin! nuu

This doesn't really give me the creeps anymore, it certainly did when I was a child. I couldn't even stand these:
It wasn't the pattern, it was the HOLES. *shivers*

I don't have it myself, but I discovered that my roommate is very trypophobic as we were watching Adventure Time and this scene came on. She had never heard of Trypophobia before and felt amazed that she finally had a term to describe her weird life-long discomfort at clusters of holes. XD

I know what you mean! I was also amazed to find a term to discribe it. Tell her that a frog like that actually exists (or not, no, don't tell her anx )... it's horrible.

I found a good picture of one of the real frogs last night that is sure to send a shudder through any trypophobic person. Haha, but she would kill me if I tried to show it to her.

I've known about this, and I have it bad.

Working as a cashier, I've found it unfortunate that crumpets are quite popular in my area. I have to touch them (but they're in bags)

But yeah, I'm extremely trypophobic.

EDIT: Oh, and lolatheloaner, I'll have you know that I definitely did not notice that was a link, and hoverzoom opened up that frog/beast/mutant/creature/nightmare thing full size on my monitor, much to my surprise It's fine, but holy crap it gave me a jolt!

I think most people would find it very gross, yeah. But for trypophobia there seems to be another level of gross/horror. (EDIT: oh, and you should see one that's alive with baby frogs coming out of it's holes nuu )

@Download: That crumpet is a bit anx, but not the worst for me.... although the more I look at it the worse it gets! lach1

I saw that already.

Now I can also understand the assistant manager's (and mine!) 's reaction to this flower pot in the shop:

She literally backed away when she unwrapped the container and saw this.

I'll admit, that's not the worst, but some crumpets can get pretty awful. I just quickly picked an image.

Sorting through, here are some more.
They're a lot worse when they are uncooked

Though nothing triggers me more than the frog creature and bee hives/wasp nests

I still remember, too... I was in biology and had to look at plant cells. When I focused the microscope, I immediately jumped back because the pattern was very trypophobic triggering. Never took biology again.

I actually peeked in here because of the mention of cookies, kiekeboe . Doing a quick search I found out that they're not cookies at all but Cadbury Creme Egg pull apart sweet rolls so don't worry, no freaky cookies. ^^ Just a heart attack in some pastry.

Edit: I'm sorry if it's the opposite of helpful. D=
