Top 10 Unusual Phobias, Vol. 2

Goto next slide#9: Ochlophobia

What It Is:

Morbid fear of crowds

About the Word:

The root of this word – ochlos, Greek for mob – also gives us ochlocracy, meaning mob rule.

Those suffering from the more familiar agoraphobia avoid open or public places (the ancient Greece marketplace was the agora).
