Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon

Post date: Aug 2, 2013 7:50:32 PM

I always wondered how it is possible to observe the same thing again and again. On a particular day, if I read something interesting or watch something - it keeps appearing again and again in a different context for the whole day…


Maybe I observe things related to my mood.. for example, out of hundreds of words and ideas... I follow just a few. If I reread the same text, maybe I will observe an entirely different set of terms and ideas... all depending on mood.

I always wondered is there a theory behind it Or is it just the case with me. I read this and this yesterday – They indeed have a name for this :)
