red truck syndrome
A term that dignifies the increased awareness that one has for a particular thing in one’s surrounding after certain types of exposure to that object.
The “syndrome” may occur after one purchases a red–or any other colour–truck, or is otherwise made more aware of red trucks, after which the person notices how many red trucks there are.
Whilst this term is obviously not a real syndrome, it appears to fill a lexical void.
