I have this problem, but just on my little finger and half my ring finger (which maps to specific nerves). This is a result of a fall on the ice as a pedestrian in 1989. It was weird at first, but now I don't notice it.

Second admission: I have a great fear of asking people to do things. I hate calling up people and asking them to volunteer. I hate asking people to show up at meetings. This is not a good characteristic in a middle manager

Afraid to admit who i like, but that's just due to peer pressure. Otherwise, no problem.
Have a grudge against those who humiliate me, forever.
Was afraid of hitting drops/anything risky - being abstinent.

1: I am sh*t scared of rats (they want to eat me I know it!)
2: I am afraid of falling on rocks, not the big ones like I did this morning, but the head and torso sized ones that break bones.
3: I'm faster at night ( cant see the rocks until your on them)
4: I cant go past a junk pile. ( you know when they have those swap-your-rubbish kerbside collections)

I'm not sure but this is especially obvious when say, I climb a long set of stairs into an old castles tower, come out at the top and it's really high up I just stay as far away from the edge as I can. In my case I think it's much more fear of falling off that height rather than being scared of the actual height.

EDIT: Yeah, I just remember I'm quite scared of pitch dark places.

Yes, I am afraid that any time I'm not dead last in a BMX race, it's simply charity. I'd like to thank Paul for crashing last night and giving me my 4th place finish. Had the guy he tangled with not gotten up so quickly, I could have had a shameful 3rd place.

I am terrified of big spiders, the little ones I can easily crush
I am very simplistic, utilitarian. Hence, I ride a single-speed MTB and road bike, and the road bike only has a front brake. Just the bare essentials.
I take stupid, but calculated risks
I am on the verge of alcoholism (maybe)
I hate just about everyone I meet, unless I have something in common.
I am very poor.

I forgot, I'm slightly duckfooted on my right foot (no, I don't have webbings between toes, when I walk my right foot is angled outwards, it ain't straight, partly to do with the knee I think )

I hate asking for money owed to me. i.e., asking for Rent money from my roommate.

I hate spiders bigger than the size of a quarter.

I suck at personal finances. I still haven't done my taxes.

I'm a big time procrastinator. Many times to my detriment.

I have lost all feeling in my little and middle toe on my left foot permanantly by crushing some nerve endings yesterday. I also don't like asking people for money which they owe but don't mind asking to borrow money.

What notes??? If I can help then why not.

I also do stupid things, dangerous and embarassing. I was talking with some of my female friends and one was complaining about how guys don't uderstand how hard it is to walk in high heels. I said it can't be that hard so she offered me her shoes, 4inch leather boots that go up to about the bottom of your knee. Well I accepted, didnt do them up though... too tight. I also believe that women who complain about high heels are lying, I jogged up and down some stairs, did a little jig and even chased her to get my normal shoes back. However I did all this after her school play and there were about 150 girls there and lots of teachers... very embarrising. Then my mate decided to kick me in the balls to check whether I was a guy or not... needless to say that added injury to insult
