16: Phobias (Listen closely, you can hear Trace screaming 'cause there might be a spider)
/

Your extreme and irrational fear of spiders or public speaking or of heights is called a phobia. It doesn’t make sense, often can’t be rationalized and woe betide the fool who tells you to just take a deep breath and relax. Your amygdala believes there’s a danger and you’re fight-or-flighting before you even know it.
