My Inquiry question is, “How do we develop phobias?”
As that question explains, my topic this semester is based on phobias and how we develop phobias. I personally have Cynophobia which is the fear of dogs. I have always wondered why people fear situations or things when to others those bring them joy? I want to research and deeply understand where phobias come from because of how it affects most of our world.
I want to be able to tell others that phobias are real and how someone should not be making fun of another person just because of what they fear. This topic is dear to my heart because every time I tell someone I am scared of dogs and I don’t like them, they either start laughing or questioning how this could be real.
I am looking forward to sharing my research with you and I hope we all learn a little more about phobias and how they affect us today.
