    If I told you what my weaknesses were I'd no longer be an INTJ.

    Being swarmed by millions of bats while backed against a wall = not pleasant, I'd imagine. Never mind scorpions, plate-sized flying cockroaches crashing into my face, or any other unexpected critter...

    Not to mention, bats are supposedly natural reservoirs for rabies - naturally present/dormant in 0.01% of all bats. That's 1/10,000...but still. Rabies is not fun...there are videos on youtube of people actually dying from it. Scary stuff.

    There has also been cases of people contracting rabies by breathing in al the concentrated infectious vapor within a cave.

    Certain parts of Texas would make me uneasy as well. (A daily million-bat "commute" in Austin, at least)

    Well sorry to make you even more parinoid but bats mean bat shit and bat shit may well mean Histoplasmosis - fungal infection of the lungs. I have two colleagues getting over that right now. It can take months and its not much fun.

    Oh, I've heard about that too. Too bad they pollinate/consume insects, otherwise it'd be nice to just exterminate all of those filthy/dangerous things. Why can't they clean and nice, like bumblebees? :/

    Two colleagues you said?? Yikes. What do you guys do to put you in contact with bats?

    There's your fear - of not being INTJ. :P

    Narwhals.

    I hate narwhals. They freak me out. They look like fat retarded unicorns that stab people in the ocean.

    So creepy.

    I have a fear of X-Rays (not the radiation standpoint- just the xrays)
    along with a fear of bones in general. I think it's called cartilogenophobia.

    I can't recall any experiences that would have provoked the fear.

    That is one I've never heard before and I confess never crossed my mind.

    Interesting...

    Probably so you can't say your name in the afterlife...so you'll be stuck roaming about. Or something similar...


    As for irrational fears.. snakes. Need I say more?

    No wonder Pam was such a popular name in ancient Egyptian thieving circles!
