Hey! So before I begin I got this information from Vsauce my favorite science youtuber! He’s great, you’ll learn a lot from him, I know I did.

So anyway, there are 3 types of fears as examined by Stephen Kind

1) Gross-out: so gore, disease, nasty things

2) Horror: unnautural things, like a giant spider

3) Terror: when somethings creepy

What makes something creepy is ambiguity

For example masks. It masks facial expression, you don’t know how that other person is feeling. Are they a threat? Or are they nice? You just don’t know. 

Francis T Mcandrew and Sara S. Koehnke described being creeped out as an ambiguity of threats from others. (click on the pictures to enlarge)

Creepy things maybe a threat, but they are also kind of not. Like a teddy bear with a full set of human teeth. So our brains just don’t know what to do. 

So instead of carrying out a typical fear response, we just feel uneasy.

This post is so useful for the horror book I’m writing
