    And it was poor Schoenberg who suffered from both acute and chronic Triskaidecaphobia.

    And maybe that fear stemmed from his having layed the ground work for the twelve-tone system, since it probably threatened his philosophical framework. After all, he learnt composition on his own...

    Just a thought.............can't confirm or deny.............

    I think this would be the worst one to have-

    Panophobia or Pantophobia- Fear of everything

    Hi Judy, that would be me as one of them.

    I don't know why, they are smaller than me, and looking in the mirror I am much scarier.
