Ever noticed how when you see something frequently, you stop noticing it?

Your nose's profile, for example.

It makes you think...

If you mean like how some people can see their nose in the bottom corner of their vision, that's because there brain chooses to ignore it.

What else does the brain choose to ignore?
>>
>>17233496
not what you'd want it to

The term you are looking for is stimulus, or the plural, stimuli. Frequently observed stimuli usually becomes "ignored" after a time, yes.

the subconscious still sees it, but it pays little attention to it, and the conscious ignores it.

>>17233496
the subconscious chooses to ignore anything that it thinks is unimportant, like your nose (which is important, whereas being aware of it isnt).

i would imagine, there is a massive number of things that you ignore, and of them, some might have greater importance that you dont recognise. i think its silly to try to go over them all to find the importance though.

and then you have psychological repressions, things that do attract attention enough to be conscious about, but that the subconcious knows not to allow the conscious to become aware of. many fears and emotions are ignored because what is gained from ignoring them is more important that what is gained from being aware of them.

What about when you buy a new car and suddenly you notice them everywhere?
>>
>>17236351
Sorry, just to clarify.

When you buy a new or anNother car and for the next few weeks you will notice the same model of car driving around (what seems like) more often?
