Spotlight Effect

The Spotlight Effect refers to our tendency to think that other people are watching us more closely than they actually are. Do you remember that one time in school when you tripped on something, fell on your butt, and everyone saw you? Of course, you do, and it may have been one of the most embarrassing moments of your life. But chances are, no one remembers but you. And those who remember probably don't think it was as bad as you thought.
