common fears

if you get more than 30, I strongly recommend some counseling.
if you get more than 20, you’re paranoid.
if you get 11-20, you are normal.
if you get 10 or less, you’re fearless.
people who don’t have any are full of crap.

  1. Because you have just over a third of the most common, rational fears?

    Please. It's a rigged game.

    And I'm sure there is a reason for most of them.

    The question isn't really "What do you fear?" so much as "How do you react when confronted with something you fear?
