** Just try riding a tricycle after always having ridden a bicycle. You'd think if anything was going to overturn on a bend, it'd be the two-wheeler, not the naturally stable three-wheeler. Nope. You have to consciously turn the handlebar (and moderate your speed). Now imagine consciously turning a bike handlebar when riding. Some makers are starting to offer trikes that lean into bends to make the experience closer to that of a bike.

*** Though trying not to make the pitcher aware of the continuing no-hitter usually entails the pitcher's teammates avoiding him like the plague while in the dugout after the fifth inning or so. One has to imagine that sitting on the bench when not pitching, only to notice that everyone else is huddled at the other end of the dugout, would alert pitchers who weren't already aware than they had a no-no going. So in deliberately trying not to bring up the situation to the pitcher, his teammates probably made the pitcher very aware of the situation.

** That OldMaster also mentally notes that this is an issue with All Might and his instruction of Midoriya in One For All's use. All Might took to One For All far more easily than Midoriya did, and it shows in how he trains his student. The use of One For All comes much more naturally to All Might that his explanations to Midoriya are generally vague and less useful than they should be.

** While training under an OldMaster, Izuku Midoriya has an epiphany that made him realize that a lot of the issues he's had with controlling the SuperStrength of his Quirk One For All stemmed from this trope. Having grown up quirkless and gaining One For All as a teenager, he viewed his power as TooAwesomeToUse while his classmates have had their powers since kindergarten and use them as naturally as they breathe.

* Modern fighter aircraft have ''intentional instability'', which makes them respond faster to control inputs, thus becoming more maneuverable (there are other benefits as well). This means that they need to have a "smart", i.e. computer-assisted, control system that helps the pilot by translating his/her stick movements into the necessary control surface actuations. This works well as long as the pilot is able to remain relaxed about the aircraft not ''exactly'' responding to his/her input. If the pilot tries to force a maneuver against the control system's efforts it can break down very quickly and hard.

* The concept of "immersion" in fiction. Writers of [[{{Escapism}} escapist stories]] try their hardest not to draw their readers' attention to the fact they are reading a book, watching a movie, or playing a video game. Once viewers remember that they're watching fiction (usually due to bad writing like {{Said Bookism}}s, or [[FridgeLogic something not making sense]]) their ability to escape into the story drops drastically. Some [[{{Postmodern}} postmodernist]] writers and directors, like BertoltBrecht and HideoKojima, deliberately invoke this trope to point out the downsides of escapism, by deliberately making the audience aware of the unconscious processes involved.
