Diagnostic criteria for a phobia

Phobias are considered irrational and intense fears to objects (needles, sharps, clown, colors...), animals (dogs, snakes, insects, cockroaches...), or to specific situations (closed or narrow places, public speaking, being touched...).

Almost all of us know someone who has an excessive fear of the dark/night (nyctophobia), mice (musophobia, very large objects megalophobia, clowns (coulrophobia) or even of being touched hafephobia), as phobias are among the most common mental disorders.

But not all fears are classified as phobias. The fear has to be excessive and persistent, causing the person to experience panic, terror and/or anxiety accompanied by some physical symptoms.

In addition, the phobic person must try very hard to avoid facing the object, animal or situation that he fears, or he must face it with great anxiety or fear.

In any case, the anxiety or fear should not be better explained by another type of disorder, such as obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) or generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).
