For those with serious cry-and-run-away sort of phobias, does your phobia have a more specific 'core'?

I've noticed with the handful of fellow phobics I've met, there's the general phobia but also a specific element - for example, my friend who's phobic of crustaceans is particularly unnerved by the pincers and mandibles. A lady who was phobic of rats was particularly unnerved by the bit where the tail meets the body. Mannequins that hint at movement, such as appearing to twitch or tremble slightly, scare me far far more than stationary or fully animated mannequins. Found myself wondering if this is the case for most/all phobias.
