6. Chronophobia is the fear of time.
Chronophobia (from Greek to "time" and "fear") is one of the types of phobias, a neurotic fear of time that manifests itself in various forms. For the first time this syndrome was found in prisoners who were horrified because of the length of the sentence, imagining that his departure was unreal. When the initial intensity of symptoms decreases with time, the patient becomes a phlegmatic, automatically existing in prison isolation, not interested in anything, living the primitive needs of today. This understanding is the most common, therefore often as a synonym for chronophobia, the term "prison neurosis" is used. In a broader sense, the term "chronophobia" refers to the uncontrollable fear of time that arises in a situation of long waiting for some important or desired event.

First described by Karl Westfall.
Also there are similar in value, but at the moment obsolete terms of demophobia and ohlofobiya - fear of a large crowd of people.
9. Taphophobia is the fear of being buried alive.
Taphophobia (from other Greek, τάφος - coffin, grave and φόβος - fear) - fear of funeral and funeral supplies, as well as fear of burial alive; one of the basic phobias of the human psyche. In the medical-psychiatric literature, it is traditionally included in a number of other names indicating similar mental disorders - claustrophobia (phobia of closed space), no-phobia (fear of darkness), etc.
As early as 1772, the Duke of Mecklenburg introduced a mandatory postponement of the funeral until the third day after death to prevent possible burial alive. Soon this measure was adopted in a number of European countries, and it was approved, for example, by the philosopher Moses Mendelssohn. In the XIX century, the fear of being buried alive became a fairly common phobia. This situation led to the fact that from the second half of the XIX century until 1934 in Europe and North America special "safe coffins" were patented and manufactured, equipped with rescue equipment for the buried alive. These funds would allow the buried one to send a signal to other people by mistake or to get out of the grave independently. In addition, similar devices were equipped with some crypts. Nevertheless, there is no evidence that these rescue tools have actually helped anyone.
The fear of being buried was experienced by a number of famous personalities. For example, Gogol and Tsvetaeva were afraid to be buried alive and specially stressed it - Gogol in "Selected places from correspondence with friends", Tsvetaeva in the suicide note before suicide (the popular legend that Gogol was indeed buried alive - when exhumed his body was found lying prostrate in the coffin, is untenable). Alfred Nobel was the living victim of the fear of burial, and this fear was "hereditary" - his father, the inventor Emmanuel Nobel, also was afraid to be buried alive and even invented one of the first "safe coffins". British writer Wilkie Collins also suffered from this phobia, and in such a strong form that every night left a "suicide note", in which he asked the reader to carefully verify his death, if he does not wake up. For the same reason, the philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer bequeathed to wait with his funeral five days after his death, as a result of which the funeral of the philosopher was hampered by the smell of the decomposition of the body.
A kind of legend was a resident of Manchester, Hannah Bezuyk, a rich Englishwoman who experienced a pathological fear of mistaken burial alive (and she had the grounds for this: her brother was almost buried alive by mistake). In accordance with the will, the body of Hannah Bezuik after her death in 1758 was embalmed and more than a hundred years was preserved without burial "for periodic testing for signs of life." During its existence the mummy of Hannah Bezuik has gained wide popularity under the name of the Manchester Mummy, for several decades being an exhibit of the museum of the Manchester Society of Natural History. Only in 1868, after the recognition of Hannah Bezuyk "irrevocably and undoubtedly dead," her body was finally buried.
10. Phylophobia is the fear of falling in love.
Philophony - collecting music, vocal and other sound recordings on audio carriers of various kinds with possible categorization on certain topics, authors, performers, composers, musical directions, etc. Philophony, in contrast to music, is characterized by an emphasis on the search, storage and cataloging of music, rather than on its creative features.
As a field of collecting originated in the early XX century. and the most widely received from 1940-50-ies. in connection with the development of the recording industry. Until the last quarter of the 20th century, the cataloging of phonotech was almost identical to that of bibliocatalogists, where the audio book plays the role of the book as an atomic component of the catalog. Catalogs were usually conducted on cards, in which the plate number, the type of recording, when and which firm this record was issued, the order of the works written on it, the names of the authors and performers. With the development of electronic computing systems, the cataloging of phonotech was simplified by similar schemes to libraries.
Due to the relatively easy availability of music in the 2000s and the new standards of digital music (mp3, webcasts, peer-to-peer networks), philophony has become increasingly prominent as a phenomenon among private music collectors, which was also facilitated by the emergence of a number of technical utilities.
