When I was about 8, a boy in my class told me that if you looked into the mirror at midnight you would see Satan. Ever since then I havent been able to look into a mirror in a dark room!

After seeing the movie, “The Invisible Man”, I was sure when I looked in the mirror and saw only my face, I wasn’t seeing the invisible man because he was invisible and that he was really there. To this day, mirrors have a creepy effect on me.

When I was younger I had a mirror at the end of my bed on the wardrobe, at school someone told me that their sister's friend of a friend had been stood looking at the mirror reading the bible backwards at midnight and the devil appeared. This caused them to die of fright. So you can imagine that I was terrified of getting up in the middle of the night and looking in the mirror. And I couldnt watch The Candyman until a few years ago.

I use to believe that bad things could come out of the mirror when it was dark. I would always turn my bedroom mirror around before going to sleep each night.

I heard from my friend that if you look in the mirror at night and then go to sleep you would have a nightmare. So every night when i brushed my teeth i never looked up in the mirror so i brushed my teeth with my eyes closed.

I used to (and still to this day) have this unnatural fear that Hotel mirrors are one-way mirrors containing hidden cameras on the other side and that someone is watching me. I have a very hard time undressing in front of hotel mirrors. Sometimes I even talk to them just in case someone is listening! Strange...

When i was younger,there was a vary old and "scary" lady across the street. I thought that if you went into the bathroom after midnight and said her name 10 times, she would come out and kill you. my friends dared me to do it, and i went into the bathroom, got freaked out, and upon trying to open the door found that it was locked, i had no way of turning on the lights because the switch was outside the door. i stayed there the whole night because i wouldn't say the old lady's name.

after seeing a film when people were watching someone from the otherside of a one way mirror, I thought every mirror had cameras behind it. Until a few years ago, I draped towels over the mirrors in my bathroom (im 21)

I was always afraid that my 'mirror me' might forget to do his job properly and wouldn't move when I did, or move the wrong way then correct himself. I always tried to catch him out even though if it happened I would be so freaked out!

I was terrified of looking into a mirror when in the bathroom unattended. My grandmother had warned: "if you look in the mirror too long, you'll see the Devil in it!"

Not until I had outgrown the fear did I realize it was a metaphorical admonition against narcissism.

i used to think that if you looked into a mirror and thought something really mean about someone (like'i hate this person'),something bad would happen to either me or them. when i did think something mean in front of a mirror, i held my breath until i got out of the room.

If you stare into a mirror in almost complete darkness, the devil will appear instead of your reflection.

I used to think that mirrors were recording devices that made videos of you, rather like a video camera. I used to do lots of posing in mirrors, but not because it made me feel pretty- because I thought it would record a video of me and then giant people would watch it. I wanted to impress them!
