When you’re a baby, you’re afraid of falling and loud noise, two things that signal danger. The majority of fear comes from the innate instinct of survival. Along with those two basic fears, many people are afraid of snakes and spiders, again because of a survival instinct. Evolution has caused a fear of venomous animals. Other fears, like clowns and skeletons, are all learned. The majority of fears are caused by nurture. You wouldn’t be afraid of halloween unless you were taught that or your parents told you it was scary.
