18 Phobias Every Creative MUST Overcome! -

We all have our share of demons that hide stealthily into the abyss of our subconscious, hindering our progress, nagging at us in one way or the other. These demons, at times, appear as irrational fears. Such are the fears that they affect us in ways we deem not conceivable and even challenge our capabilities and potential.

“Phobias”, is the term we coined for our irrational fears. These phobias take a toll on us; sometimes, stopping us from exploring new horizons and experimenting with our work. However, it is never too late that you put your foot down against them and decide to face your demons! The list of phobias that plague the mankind is extensive and might as well be in-exhaustive.

However, if we talk about certain types of fears that haunt the creative mind, then we might be able to compile a list that could be definitive and render itself helpful to many. Hence, I took upon the task to assemble a list that holistically sums up some of the main phobias that threaten the creative mind— be it of an artist or a graphic designer who is ever-thirsty for new ideas and inspiration— and challenges its potential.  

Some of the most intriguing and unfathomable ones of the phobias that are found to meddle with the creative mind are, “Horror Vacui” which is the Latin phrase for "the fear of empty space” and, “Chromophobia” which is an irrational fear of colors and the person fighting such a fear may draw an aversion to the certain tints, hues or shades. Another interesting phobia that many creatives are known to face is the, “Atelophobia”, the fear of imperfection.

Explore the following 18 phobias that every creative MUST learn to confront and overcome…
