You really let your fear of being good at quizzes beat you on this one! But don't worry, despite being frightened and fearful now, we know you have the inner strength to get back up and try again to beat your fears!

B+, Fan of Fears

Right!
While you may not have known all the fears in this quiz, you know a good portion of them, and that's pretty impressive. You know just what people are afraid of, and that can be a pretty good tool if you ever need to get sweet revenge on anyone! (We here at the site do not endorse spider-related revenge).

A+, Faced Your Fears

Right!
You faced your fears and came out the other side, unscathed! Well, maybe you didn't actually have any of the fears listed in this quiz, but at least you know a whole lot about the fears of others. And that gives you a one-up on anyone who wrongs you in life!
