The Vinny Raffa Effect occurs after repetitive sightings of a repeated visual stimulus, often a sticker or grafitti. As a child I used to often see this one sticker with a mysterious icon - Vinny Raffa. This led me to ask the question, "who is Vinny Raffa?" As I grew up I saw more and more of these stickers throughout my lifetime and always wondered with great fascination what they meant and how they got there. However when I got older I eventually learned the true identity of the man on the sticker and with this discovery, much of my interest was lost. The Vinny Raffa Effect occurs when you lose interest in something after discovering too much about it.
I'm not sure if this is an example of The Vinny Raffa Effect but, I just found out who made all of these mysterious cards we've been seeing everywhere and now I don't care.
