Phobias or psychotic dysfunctions among Lebanese?

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 (dress) : The fear of going to a wedding and finding out that another woman is wearing the same dress.
