Phobias are categorized in DSM-V and ICD-10 as anxiety disorders, in which specific, well defined situations invoke anxiety, despite their not posing any danger to the individual. These situations are characteristically avoided or endured with dread. Phobias can either be associated with very specific situations or objects (categorized as specific phobias) or with a somewhat broader set of similar situations such as in the cases of agoraphobia and social phobia.
