It's a lot more common than you think
We’re all afraid of something. There are those who have arachnophobia: a fear of spiders; claustrophobia: a fear of small spaces; and even thanatophobia: a fear of death. As for Kendall Jenner, she recently announced on her website/app that she, too, deals with a phobia called trypophobia.
‘Anyone who knows me knows that I have really bad trypophobia,’ the model began on her blog, according to People. ‘Trypophobics are afraid of tiny little holes that are in weird patterns. Things that could set me off are pancakes, honeycomb or lotus heads (the worst!).’ According to psychologist Geoff Cole, this is a common phobia that’s not often discussed.
‘It sounds ridiculous but so many people actually have it!’ Kendall revealed. ‘I can’t even look at little holes – it gives me the worst anxiety. Who knows what’s in there???’
People also revealed that Kendall
isn’t the only Kardashian/Jenner sister to have a specific fear. On her
own blog, Khloé admitted that she hates belly buttons. She wrote, ‘You
can’t touch mine and I don’t want to touch yours. When I’m in the
shower, I wear hand mitts and I scream every time I wash my belly
Well, there you have it, folks. Even people as glam as the Kardashians and Jenners identify with certain phobias out there.
