Persistent or irrational fears are known as phobias. Some people may fear specific animals, while others may be fearful of particular situations, such as social events.
The intensity with which some people experience fear can be mild, while others may be debilitated by their fears. Psych Central states that traumatic events often trigger the development of specific phobias, and women are slightly more likely to experience these types of fears than men.
