iPhone11’s three-camera design triggers trypophobia: Know al
As Apple unveiled its latest products — including the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max at its annual event Tuesday, some people found their attention drawn to one particular detail in the new phone – the numerous camera lenses. The three-camera feature with a 12MP wide camera, a 12MP telephoto lens and another 12MP lens for ultra-wide photography exclusively designed for photography professionals has not quite gone down well with a lot of people, with some claiming that it has triggered their trypophobia

What is trypophobia?

“Trypophobia refers to an excessive and irrational fear of a cluster of holes. The discomfort at seeing such a pattern may have an evolutionary basis, where such shapes may resemble images that indicate disease or danger,” Dr Samir Parikh, director and head of department mental health and behavioral sciences, Fortis Healthcare told.

While prevalence is unknown, a few research indicate that trypophobia may be quite common. A 2013-study published in the journal Psychological Science found that 16 per cent of participants experienced feelings of disgust or discomfort when looking at an image of a lotus seed pod.

In contrast to a fight-or-flight response, gearing the body up for action, a parasympathetic response slows heart rate and breathing and constricts the pupils. “These visual cues signal the body to be cautious, while also closing off the body, as if to limit its exposure to something that could be harmful,” one of the authors of the study said.


When people see trigger objects, they experience symptoms such as severe fear, nausea, itching, sweating, shaking, feelings of revulsion, goosebumps, rapid breathing, emotional distress and even panic attacks.
