Top 10 Lebanese Phobias of all time!

While psychology specialists often disagree on the interpretation of many mental issues and their cures, they all agree that Lebanon is made of one exceptional sample of weirdly complexed, mentally unstable and creepingly freaky population of psychos.

In fact, we are not to be blamed for that. The wars we’ve been through, the corruption we are trying to survive and our eager need to enjoy life has molded us into a complex mixture of happiness and fear.

From this unique mixture, internationally renown shrinks have extracted the below Top 10 list of Phobias, highly diagnosed in Lebanon:

– Fostan’o’phobia : The fear of going to a wedding and finding out that another woman is wearing the same dress.

– Ascenceur’o’phobia : The fear of being stuck in the elevator all night without food, water, and, God forbid, without cell phone signal.

      Thanks Rima 🙂 Happy it made you smile. In fact in our intro paragraph, we tried to show that we are not blaming the Lebanese or self hating, just a little self sarcasm is what keeps us all going and smiling.
