It would not be surprising if there proved to be both a disposition to particular phobias and also a more general disposition to all phobias. In a large-scale twin study, Kendler found exactly this: “strong evidence of the existence both of genetic and environmental risk factors unique to each kind of phobia and for genetic and environmental risk factors that influenced all phobia subtypes” (Kendler et al. 1992, p. 279). In order to resolve the issue of combining or splitting the specific phobia category using the approaches currently in vogue, it will be necessary for future research to collect detailed and separate information about every irrational fear reported, including age of onset; whether it reaches full phobia criteria; its course, including age of remission, if any; detailed comorbidity history and information from family members, at least about fears and phobias, but ideally about a range or other mental disorders.
