Why does this happen?

If I suspect there's a big spider on the wall from my peripheral vision, I immediately look at it for longer even though i'm in state of fear.

    It's just your imagination. I'm sure it happens to a lot of other people. It sure happens to me. You probably keep looking at it because part of you knows that it's probably not real and you keep looking at it to see what it was to shape a spider and you wanna get a good look at it.
