I hope this is the right section... It's usually used by doctors and such, so it it part of science? No clue. *sweat*

Me and my buddy are so much into character development that we wanted to add phobias and philias to them, so we researched for several days what all there is. Apparently all it is are Latin or Greek words put in front of the words phobia (an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something) and philia (denoting fondness, especially an abnormal love for a specified thing).

For example: pedophilia is an abnormal love for children, while pedophobia is an irrational fear towards children.

Here's a list of phobias/philias we complied from several websites put into one alphabetically sorted list, hope you enjoy.
