Horrify: v. to sense very intense fear for a relatively short duration

Horrify me often means scare the shit out of me. We also often speak about horrifying  deformaties, accidents, and murders without really personally feeling the very intense fear associated with the things and/or events. A horror story may be horrific for the newbie but not so horrifying to the consummate reader of very many horror stories.

Horrific things horrify for a relatively short duration and although there may be occasionally some permanent or long duration bad effects on the psyche most horrifying episodes only last for a relatively short duration because the human mind just can’t tolerate very intense fear for a very long duration.
