On September 10, Apple launched its first three-camera iPhone 11 Pro in California. The entire focus of the company is on telling the camera’s features but social media users are associating it with the psychological fear of being called ‘Trypophobia’.
According to the American Psychiatric Association, the fear of seeing small holes and bulge is called tryptophobia. It was first mentioned in a report in 2015 in the US. There is a lot of fear about this phobia especially among the people of Western countries and its victims are afraid of everything in which they see many holes simultaneously. People see things like bee hive, lotus dried seeds and then get scared.
#Trypophobia is an aversion to the sight of irregular patterns or clusters of small holes, or bumps. It is not officially recognized as a mental disorder, but may fall under the broad category of specific phobia if fear is involved and the fear is excessive and distressing. pic.twitter.com/wOvgbyD14Q
