The Fear Hierarchy

Jan Pet­tit’s list of fears, ranked from child­hood through par­ent­hood. I’m cur­rently some­where between 13 and 17:

13. Fear of selling out
Desert­ing dreams.
Embra­cing cap­it­al­ism.

14. Fear of the dark (con­tin­ued)
Park­ing lots at night.
Deser­ted streets at night.
Apart­ments at night.
Houses at night.
Bed­rooms at night.

15. Fear of rejec­tion (con­tin­ued)
By lov­ers.
By bosses.
By friends.

16. Fear of being unloved

17. Fear of being unlov­able
