It occurs when increased awareness of something creates the illusion that it is appearing more often.[4] Put plainly, the frequency illusion is when “a concept or thing you just found out about suddenly seems to crop up everywhere.”[5]

Benjamin Franklin Write things worth reading, or do things worth writing. “If you wou’d not be forgotten As soon as you are dead and rotten, Either write things worth reading, Or do things worth the writing.”
