Universal Psychological Experiences
 
There is still a history to look at, but in these cases history is used to show that those experiences are indeed common to most or all of us and have been around for a long time.  Today we're all about resurrecting and exploiting childhood fears. Hey, why not?  That's as good a way as any to give folks the willies.  Specifically, we're going to look at scary faces seen in abstract or semi-abstract patterns, the sorts of patterns used to decorate walls and furniture.

It's hard to know how far back we can trace this particular bogey.  I suppose that when the fires burned low and the shadows of night took over, cavekids used to shiver at the sight of knarly old trees turning into monsters, but if we want to stay indoors and talk about childhood terror triggered specifically by patterns in walls and furniture, I suppose we have to wait until the emergence of cheap, mass produced, decorative detailing.  Before that, wall devils would have been a luxury known only to the lucky few, the children of the rich and powerful.  If only he had been born a few generations further back, that unlucky kid in our cartoon would have been sleeping soundly.

Everybody is afraid of something. That's what more than 1,700 kids told us when we asked them about fears and scary stuff. Some don't like the dark. Others hate nightmares and scary movies. And then there are those who want to run away from mean dogs, snakes, and creepy crawly spiders.
 
The Top Fears
 
We gave kids a list of 14 scary things and asked which one frightened them the most. Here are the top 5 answers from our survey:
 
    scary movies and TV shows
    nightmares and scary dreams
    thunderstorms, hurricanes, and other violent weather
    war and terrorism
    sounds I hear at night
 
But not everyone is afraid of the same things. And what makes one person scared can be no big deal for someone else. Plenty of kids said their biggest fear wasn't on our list.
