From COLOURlovers: The Fear of… Colors??

by | Posted January 13th, 2013


Phobias are everywhere. You won’t generally find somebody that doesn’t have at least one. But have you ever thought about the fear of colors? COLOURlovers goes there in “The Absolutely Scariest Colors Imaginable.” There are specific phobia names for each of the colors; Phodophobia (red), Melanophobia (black), or Chlorophobia (green). These can come about when the mind associates a certain color to a traumatic event or fear.

COLOURlover also associates a color spectrum to common, or strange, phobias that are, for the most part, well known. For example, Arachnophobia, the fear of spiders.
