Although fear is a normal response to a perceived dangerous situation, a phobia is when someone experiences pervasive and overwhelming fear of something. This remains true even if that something poses little to no actual danger. For example, it is normal to feel uncomfortable in tight or crowded spaces, but it becomes a phobia when you are spending significant amounts of your time trying to avoid situations where there might be a case of you experiencing any environment as such.
