You know when you buy a car and youre driving around and you notice all the other cars the same as yours? Or you get a dog and you suddenly become aware of all the same type of dogs that are out there. So what changed? Its not that there is now magically more of a certain type of car or breed of dog, its just that your perception now confirms a subset of the data your senses are receiving (your eyes in this case).

The data: I have pug.
Confirmation cycle: Wow look at all the people who own pugs. Where were they before?

The data: I have a mustang.
Confirmation cycle: Wow look at all the mustangs on the road. I never noticed them before.

Frequency Illusion: The illusion in which a word, a name, or other thing that has recently come to one's attention suddenly seems to appear with improbable frequency shortly afterwards
