* Early in the ''Literature/CiaphasCain'' books, he neglects to mention what his tunnel instincts are telling him because it doesn't occur to him that his companion can't tell. He's aware that it's a talent not everyone possesses, it just seems to slip his mind for a moment. Further complicated by the fact that during his childhood on a Hive World, everyone ''did'' actually have that same tunnel sense due to most of the population lives underground.

* One conversation in ''{{Series/Sherlock}}'' reveals that the Holmes brothers used to think that their massive intellect was the norm.
-->'''Sherlock:''' I used to think I was an idiot.\\
'''Mycroft:''' Both of us thought you were an idiot, Sherlock. We had nothing else to go on. Until we met ''other children''.\\
'''Sherlock:''' Oh, yes. ''That'' was a mistake.\\
'''Mycroft:''' Ghastly. What were they thinking?

* Tinnitus (a persistent perception of sound with no external source, such as a ringing or hissing noise) is usually caused by hearing loss or other damage to the ear later in life, but in some cases it can be present from a very young age. For these folks, it can be a bit surprising to learn that not everybody's ears constantly ring.

* A really horrifying example of this happens in ''WebComic/ForestHill''. Benni has an extremely abusive and neglectful father who regularly forced Benni to have sex with men for money and also beat him when angered. Benni had no idea that that this wasn't normal or legal. When Kaleb's mother is kind to him, he thinks that she expects him to pay her back with sex and is surprised that that she doesn't treat her son the same way his father does to him. Another example this happens when Hunter is molested by a five year old girl who had no idea that children are not supposed to touch each other's private parts, due to the fact that she has been watching her father's porn and also may have seen her father having sex with Benni.
