Trypophobia - A reason to not buy an iPhone 11

Recommended Posts

Ughhh I have trypophobia, but it has to be a lot of holes for me. It's like looking at someone's decaying flesh that has maggots drilling holes inside it.

Really I find it fascinating. 😓

Looks like as usual lawyers are looking to coin in their next croc of cack

I’m not aware how does a lawyer’s mental gymnastics work but how can they defend this when “Trypophobia” isn’t even listed in DSM-V or any diagnostic taxonomies?

Some people are going to have some serious reactions when the Mac Pro is released.

...I'm sorry, why did they buy it if it triggers this phobia?

If the current trend keeps up those prices need an extra 9 at the end to be realistic :P


...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

DSM has umbrella "specific phobia".

It's hip and quirky to have some phobia or shit and everyone is like "oh muh god you're so cool". And the people who actually have phobias are shivering in a corner and are not bragging about it.

Yeah, you'll never see me willingly go into onea those escape room things. Ugh.

 

Phobias can be serious shit.

Should be legal to punch people who claim that they're "so OCD".

Where were the complaints about Apple designing their Mac Pro to resemble a cheese grater?

The phobia is normal only triggered by small holes and usually it's in a living thing (not always). so depending on perspective, larger holes like on the mac pro are not an issue,  also being able to see through to the other side also negates the reaction (which is why flyscreen and safety doors aren't an issue).

What class action?

 

 

EDIT: just thought I should add that I don't like the name it has or the fact it is referred to as a phobia. Apart from not being anything other than an observed condition, the closest it really comes to phobia are some elements of fear that lay at the heart of the ill feeling you get when triggered.

Yeah, me too. I did read/hear someone mention this before I saw this thread and considered it, but yeah, this doesn't "trigger" it in me.

Yeah, for me, it's usually something organic that "triggers" it (I don't like the word "trigger"...it's highly overused)....though I do confess that with thread bringing everything to the forefront, @Murasaki's pics are bothering me a bit now :)

It's funny how much drama is generated around iPhone 11 cameras. But absolutely none about Nokia 9 that actually has so many cameras packed in small space it could actually cause problems to some ppl with this fear. And no one said a word. Heh.

AFAIK, trypophobia is not a "real" phobia. It is something that a lot of people have (me included) but its just a bad feeling - and the new iphone DEFINETELY does not bother me.

 

If the whole back of the phone had irregular holes, MAYBE people could feel bad looking at it, but still the whole situation is ridiculous.

 

For ppl that are confused, just google trypophobia in google images that you will see what this is about.

I used to have it. Whenever I'd see an image with it in, it made my skin crawl and i'd start itching and sweating.

 

I forced myself to look at images of it for about half an hour. Now it doesn't bother me thankfully.

You're right, I didn't think of that seeing iPhones, with that Nokia I thought it might resemble some of the ugly holes, but for example every time I see Peugeot with those lights:

I am disgusted. It makes me uncomfortable, reminds me of worms coming out of someone's skin.
I never knew trypophobia has a name.
