How scared of heights are you?
|611 votes
Not at all, not even in the slightest (head for heights, meaning you are exceptionally unphazed by heights)
8%
A bit, but only when it is an actual danger (fear of falling, which is a natural feeling that most humans have)
52%
Quite (more than the average fear of falling, but not quite acrophobia yet)
28%
I am a literal acrophobic (extreme or irrational fear of heights, even when you are not too high up, and can trigger a panic attack when high above the ground)

I wouldn't say i'm scared of heights at all, but i do tend to feel dizzy and like i'm going to fall forwards if there's no railing/low railings and going down steep stairs. Not sure if that counts haha

A bit, I guess!

I can say I'm really afraid of heights, I mean for example, let's say we would be at the edge of a mountain, it has a beautiful scenery, no guard rails involved on that specific mountain, I could look at that view or look down and you wouldn't see me pass out, but I would start shaking and sweating uncontrollably.

The strange thing is that I only fear of heights when I don't have anything solid under my feet AND looking down from great heights. So...if I hopped on a ski-lift with a leg-rest of some sort, I wouldn't have any problems, and would enjoy the sights, and fresh air. But if that leg-rest were missing... that would be giving me the creeps.

I have acrophobia, there's been a couple of times where I've felt light-headed and been physically unable to move because of it (one of these instances was when I was at least a meter or two off the ground on one of those rope tower things) xP but I really love going on planes and having a good view (up a hill, upstairs flat)? I guess in places where I either feel safe or where I'm so high it almost doesn't seem real, if you know what I mean?

Oh, I've also been on a ski lift type thing once to go up a hill in Germany, I was okay coming back down but going up was horrible. I was shaking and felt ill for a good while after I got off at the top xD

I don't /dislike/ heights, and don't mind them; but as soon as I have to do something like high ropes, I freak out and become super shaky, and can't move. I wish I didn't have that reaction, but I honestly can't help it at all. It's really odd too, because I love being in planes and virtually anywhere else high.

Ahhhh, I guess being on a plane just feels safer :P

Yeah it really does, at least to me. I also like looking out at the clouds~

I'm fine if I'm only like 5-6 feet off the ground, but any higher than that and I have trouble. I freak if I happen to see out the window on a plane.

I see! I've only been on a plane once when I was 7, so I don't really know about that :P

I was 23 when I went on a plane the first time. And my sister decided it would be fun to keep opening the window shield to freak me out.

I suffer from the High Place Phenomenon quite often.

It's not the heights that scares me, but sometimes I think about just leaping off and THAT'S what freaks me out. Falling. Not the height itself, but rapidly descending to doom.
