    seeing the second picture kinda surprised me. I tend to have an unhappy reaction to spiders that are a. in my home, or b. bigger than my thumb. Otherwise spiders in general garner my respect and awe. I'm actually allergic to a certain spider in Kentucky and after having had a "bad" reaction they just aren't so scary.

    I would put a leash on her, and we would take walks in the neighborhood.

    "What shiny fur."

    "Nice picture."

    I felt a little "sphincter squeeze." Was that startled enough?

    Second thought was wondering what it woud feel like. Soft or spiky? Warm or cold?

    The eyes are so shiny it nearly looks cute.

    Haven't read the thread. Is the idea that we are in our heads so much that things startle us?

    Here's my tried and true. Grab a kitchen glass and upend it on said creature. Now you may safely observe until ISTJ spouse comes home and does whatever ISTJs do with the little creatures. (Don't watch. THAT will startle you.)

    It's aesthetically pleasing to me. Nothing more, really.

    I'd like a psychologist to come up with a theory that explains why such clich phobias exist in our society. There probably is one out there already but I've never heard (of) it.

    My behaviorist professor told me that it is actually a genetic response. Much like a rabbit will have an instinctive response to seeing the shadow of a bird of prey (even when never having encountered one), some humans have the same response to spiders as many of them are in fact quite dangerous to us.

    Thoughts in order:

    - Aww...
    - I wonder what species it is?
    - I want to poke it.
    - I wonder if I could identify it. Hmm. Is it poisonous?

    Yes, but you'd think killers spiders would be everywhere on the planet. But they are very rare depending on where you go. I think it has more to do with the collective subconscious. Like the boogie man.
