Common phobia you have never heard of: Fear of holes may stem from evolutionary survival response
"We think that everyone has trypophobic tendencies even though they may not be aware of it," said Dr Cole. "We found that people who don't have the phobia still rate trypophobic images as less comfortable to look at than other images. It backs up the theory that we are set-up to be fearful of things which hurt us in our evolutionary past. We have an innate predisposition to be wary of things that can harm us."
