There’s always this something that catches my attention when I go off someplace and all of a sudden I get to notice these life-size human figures. True. These mannequins never fail to ensnare my awareness with their existence. As compared to common dolls, I seemed to be more likely have an ill-at-ease condition with mannequins. Can it already be considered as fear of it? As I don’t think it’s just a simple enthrallment for whatever reason.
I have gone over the internet and learned that Pediophobia is the the fear of Mannequin . And here’s what Wikipedia says about it:
Pediophobia, also known as the fear of dolls, is a relatively common kind of phobia. It is an anxiety disorder that can be associated with a range of dolls from old-fashioned china dolls and porcelain dolls to dolls that talk and move. Pediophobia is considered a branch of automatonophobia, or a fear of humanoid figures.
Well, so far, my bizarre notion about them is not really that serious. I still even got the nerve to take photos of them as the above (lol). And I think will always do (^-^)
You’ve got your own fear too?
