The Renaldi Effect, or "Going full Renaldi" , is a social psychological phenomenon that refers to cases in which an individual has a well-established bias in which someone's subjective confidence in their judgments is reliably greater than their objective accuracy. This is the phenomenon in which people tend to believe they are noticed more than they really are. Being that one is constantly in the center of one's own world, an accurate evaluation of how much one is noticed by others has shown to be uncommon. The reasoning behind the spotlight effect comes from our human tendency to forget that although one is the center of one's own world, one is not the center of everyone else's. This tendency is especially prominent when one purchases a yellow Ferrari 430.
