Phobias are anxiety disorders characterized by persistent and excessive fear of an object or situation. While there are hundreds of phobias, these can be classified into 3 main types: social phobias (fear of interacting with other people), agoraphobia (fear of social situations), and specific phobias (such as fear of animals or insects, claustrophobia, medical procedures or needles).
