*** 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.

** Learning "Drill and Ceremony" (D&C) in the military is an example. Teaching a soldier how to march makes him or her consciously think about how their arms and legs move during what is, essentially, "precision walking". It literally takes ''weeks'' to learn how to march to the proper cadence. Not to mention a plenitude of other skills in the military, such as firing a weapon, or [[GunStripping disassembling and reassembling]] equipment for maintenance or repair. Particularly important if you need to fire, disassemble, and reassemble your weapon in the midst of combat (such as when needing to clear a misfire from your weapon). Also note that you may need to do this, and any other important tasks, while also dealing with the mother of all fight-or-flight induced adrenaline surges.

Many recruits, when first instructed to swing the opposite arm forward with each step, overthink it so much that they will initially swing the arm of the ''same'' side with each step, resulting in a frankly hilarious and incredibly unnatural looking stride.

* Mistyped the PIN to your phone or bank account? Don't think about how two more incidents will lock you out permenantly. Or where you probably mistyped. Or what your PIN even is. 4399 or 4398?
** Even worse in some countries like Germany where you can't appoint your own bank PIN: locking yourself out of your bank account is fine - if you remember your PIN later or have it written down somewhere. If you don't, then the bank will take your card, destroy it and send you a new one with a new PIN which can take almost a week (since they send them seperately). Worse, if your muscle memory returns and you suddenly remember your old PIN, but not the NEW one (and you're fucked, if your new one is very close to your old one, making mistyping a guarantee). There had been people that made it into boulevard magazines who were stuck in this dilemma until they cheated by having a fake phone number with the PIN in their contacts or similar.
* Multiplication for young children. They usually at first only recite the tables before knowing them. So want to make them trip up and forget everything? Just mess with orders: 2x1? 2x2? 2x3? ''5x6?''
