Acrophobia is an extreme or irrational fear of heights, especially when one is not particularly high up. It belongs to a category of specific phobias, called space and motion discomfort that share both similar etiology and options for treatment.

Most people experience a degree of natural fear when exposed to heights, especially if there is little or no protection. On the other hand, those who have little fear of such exposure are said to have a head for heights. A head for heights is needed by those hiking or climbing in mountainous terrain and also in certain jobs.
