Which phobia is the most common?

arachnophobia
claustrophobia
agoraphobia
fear of heights
Some sta­tis­tics show that 50% of women and 10% of men show symptoms of arachno­pho­bi­a. The reasons are unclear, as a huge majority of modern spiders is harm­less. It is spec­u­lat­ed, that early humans might have lived in areas where poi­sonous spiders were a real threat.
