Death - 5 (There are worse things)

Being found out as incompetent - 7 (Particularly at work)
Having to sing in public - 5.75 (Mostly yes)
Having to dance in public - 6.5 ('fraid to look silly)
Having to throw (or catch) a ball in public - 7.5 (I expect to make a mistake)
Being in a bathing suit in public - 8 (Never used to bother me, but since my gut has grown...)
Being wrong - 4 (I think it's an art - I would like to do a post on this)
Finding out you're not as smart as you thought you are - 6.5 (I have been learning to let this go. It would have been a 9.5 in the past.)
Finances - 5 (This would have been a 9.5 in the past as well)
Taxes - 5.5 (This would have been a 9.5 in the past)
Losing - 4.5 (A slight ego pinch, but that's all)
Winning - 2 (I think I like winning)
Sex - 2.5 (It's not 100% anxiety free, but not a great source of fear)
Loneliness - 1 (Don't experience this normally. I really like my time alone.)
Unemployment - 5.5 (This has traditionally been a strong fear)
Silence - 0.5 (No problemo!)
Poverty - 6.0 (This was a big fear in the past)
Embarassment - 5.5 (I am getting pretty good at dealing with this - except for throwing/catching a ball)
Responsibility - 4.5 (I had a very hard time with this. Having family and my work have helped a lot).
