    Airplanes and elevators are no problem... I do avoid high rise buildings with big windows...I will view the landscape from a distance.

    Height exhilarates me.

    People I know who are acrophobic say they feel a pull like they'll be "sucked over the edge."

    I can climb a ladder and work on the roof as long as I don't look down. I also do not fly, but heights is only a part of the reason.

    Not actually the height itself but the distance I have to fall does tend to worry me some
    especially since I´m overweight so I´m worried that I fall on someone(poor schmuck) or just simply make a BIG and DEEP hole in the ground!

    Depends...
    Going up high and being up high I don't mind....
    It's the coming down part that scares the beegeezes out of me. ; )
    Especially when coming down involves a tall ladder.... UGH!!!

    I don't have many fears. Acrophobia is the fear of heights, not to be confused with Aerophobia, the fear of flying. Either way, my answer is no. The higher the better for me, and I love to fly! I love this commercial and the parody. You've probably seem them before but in case you haven't enjoy!

    Not really. Although I don't like to fly, has nothing to do with the height I'm a little claustrophobic don't like being contained in small space.

    Instinctively. It's the first fear noted in babies. We all have it, I believe, but that doesn't mean I won't skydive.

    Sometimes. Depends on what I am doing. I played in treehouses as a kid and heights never bothered me. I helped put on a metal warehouse roof in Alaska and it didn't bother me, but I was too busy to notice I guess....

    As an electrician in a large steel mill, I spent about 30 years working on overhead cranes and overhead lighting. I've also been up over 100 feet in bucket trucks.

    Very familiar sight! When my ex worked for a company that erected steel buildings, we went to Alaska and I got to help with the crew. Hard work!

    Yes I am. Deathly afraid of heights, the higher it is the worse it is for me. Riding in a car in the mountains I can't look down into the canyons, and if the cliff side going down is on my side of the car I white knuckle it, stare straight ahead, and have visions of crashing down the mountain. Its paniky for me. I hate it.

    YES!!! Very much so. I wish I weren't, but I am, and the fear has gotten worse the older I get. Years ago I was somewhat afraid but did ok driving, which was good because I lived in California and drove over the Golden Gate bridge countless times. I always drove in the middle lane and looked straight ahead. I also drove over the Delaware Memorial bridge and was alright. A few years back my car stalled on the highest part of the expressway here in Florida and I had to stay there and wait for my husband to come and get me. Well, if you are aware that to make bridges aerodynamically sound, they move. So as other cars whizzed by me I realized the bridge was moving and by the time my hubby arrived, my hands were clenched to the steering wheel so tightly that he had to pry them away. I was in shock and he had to carry me to his car. ( He had a tow truck pick up the vehicle that was the problem.) Anyhow, ever since then I will only drive in town and not over any bridges or high areas as I totally panic and go into freeze mode. It is awful!! I could conquer the fear.

    I can go up and down high ladders with no fear. However, when I was in the marines doing mountain warfare training in South Korea.Going across a valley on two ropes 120 feet in the air made me a little nervous
