Most people love a good surprise, but there is no denying that they can dredge up a different feeling of emotions that can get overwhelming.

8. Fear
Everyone is afraid of something. For some, it’s a needle phobia that keeps them from the doctors, and for others, it could be something as simple as leaving the house or a high-pressure interview.
