    Therapeutic for sure Although when they are as unreal as in such films, they seem to lose some of their scaryness.

    I've never understood the fear of spiders myself. I've always found them fascinating.

    Obviously I'm going to be a little nervous about the ones that are life-threateningly dangerous. I'm more cautious than scared though. Beyond them, I've always had a morbid fascination with the creatures.

    The way they move, the way they look, the intricacy and detail...

    We have a genetic disposition to fear certain things easily. This has been scientifically proven with monkeys by trying to make them fear flowers and snakes as babies without exposure to either and they learn to fear snakes much much easier than flowers.

    The way they move creeps me out. Strangely, daddy long-legs (which are not spiders) don't have that effect on me.

    Just to be accurate here, the term "daddy-long-legs" applies to three different animals depending on where you live. One is a true spider, one is an arachnid but not a spider, and the one I'm familiar with is a flying insect.

    Fi (95%); Ti (90%); Ne (75%); Fe (60%); Ni (50%); Si (50%); Te (15%); Se (5%)
