3. Symptoms of Trypophobia
Trypophobia symptoms would be a strong feeling of discomfort and itchiness on the body after viewing anything that has lots of holes. So, there is basically no specific standard of holes; anything with lots of holes could trigger the fear in them. Lotus seed pods, a sponge or a wasp’s nest could all be included in the list of having ‘too many holes’ and will therefore trigger the phobia.
There are two kinds of common reactions that people suffering from the trypophobia show at the time they come across the object of fear – they would either stare at the object for a while, then try to destroy it or typically they would feel dizzy and nauseous. Isn’t it an interesting fact about trypophobia?
4. Causes of Trypophobia
How do you get trypophobia ?
Well at this time it is hard to say, especially considering the fact that the phobia is quite recently only publically recognized and very little research has been done on it yet.However, from what psychologists have gathered by interviewing people suffering from Trypophobia can be discussed here. Like most of the phobias, this too may have its roots in early childhood. It is also believed that the condition may result due to traumatic events in the childhood or due to certain external and internal predispositions.
