Phobia Wiki




Podophobia (from the Greek word podo meaning "feet") is a fear of feet. Podophobia is often caused by bad experiences involving feet, being trampled by a big crowd. Podophobics will wear socks all the time as to avoid looking at their own feet. They will never wear any footwear that exposes their feet; such as sandals, flip flops, slippers, and some high heels.

Do you know what a Podophobia.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) doesn’t list podophobia specifically — but that doesn’t mean this fear of feet isn’t real.

As with other specific phobias, podophobia causes a degree of fear that is intense and out of proportion to any danger posed by the object itself.

For some people with podophobia, the fear is so severe that just thinking about the possibility of exposure to feet — whether bare or with socks or shoes on — can interfere with the ability to function at home, at school, at work, or in social situations.

Plus, avoiding the feared object can take a lot of time and energy. Attempting to avoid exposure to feet may keep you from accomplishing daily tasks.

How is it founded?

Researchers don’t know exactly what causes podophobia. One theory is that you may have formed an association between the feared object — in this case, feet — and an experience you found upsetting or terrifying.

The connection between the frightening event and the object might be easy to see, such as being afraid of feet if you experienced a painful or traumatic episode of abuse that involved someone else’s feet.

But the connection may not be so clear. The cognitive and biological mechanisms of phobias in relation to trauma aren’t fully understood and can vary for each individual.

Another theory is that you may have heard someone else describing a particular danger so often that you internalize the other person’s fears.
