Upon learning about the Baader-Meinhof effect, it is easy to build a cognitive bias that allows a large portion of ones experiences to be categorised as coincidence under said effect. The Baader-Meinhof-kol effect is the name of the affliction one suffers when one continually passes off correlations as coincidence when in fact they are not.

To believe in coincidence excessively to the detriment of oneself.
