About This Quiz

Everyone is afraid of something! Don't let those blowhards who claim otherwise fool you; everyone one has a fear living inside them somewhere. While your fear of spiders might indeed be a phobia, other folks are afraid of things like cotton balls! Let's dig into your psyche, and we'll take our best guess about the things you fear the most! 

Throughout the quiz, we are going to try to freak you out a little. Please be prepared. To get to the bottom of your biggest fear, we need to know some things about you and the things that frighten you the most. We're not talking about the kind of scared you would be to take a shower in a horror movie. We're talking about the everyday fears that can cripple even the bravest of soldiers. Your responses will help us make our best guess. Once we point it out to you, consider it an opportunity to look your fears in the eye and say, "Not today!"

Whether you are afraid of clowns or the IRS, we're confident we can figure out what makes you want to listen to your fight or flight response. Share your most profound thoughts with us, and you'll be amazed at our ability to see to the heart of you. At least, we'll be able to see what makes you tremble like a scared puppy!
