There are many phobias out there, like nomophobia, which is an irrational fear of not having a cell phone, and xanthophobia, which is a fear of the color yellow. Now, we’re going to look into the minds of megaphobes, who are afraid of big things like skyscrapers and jumbo jets.

This fear is called megalophobia, and there is a whole section of Reddit where people share examples of it. The group’s description says, “A place to post pictures of all things big, especially ones that are “triggers” for people with megalophobia.”

Scroll down to see some of the most interesting examples that were posted to the group
