The next item on the list goes hand in hand with the last one.
The inadvertent complication of reinforced expectations, which usually manifests in adulthood.
Usually happens something like this: you get positive reinforcement resulting from something you've done, or society inculcates the need for a certain chain of events to occur as a result of some trigger. After this happens enough times, you have come to expect this same occurrence each time the trigger presents itself, which after a while leads to a perception that this is the basic need in this event. Similarly, this also leaves you subject to disappointment.
Example: The media portrays the perception that when someone is asked out on a date, the date needs to buy flowers; this leads to the expectation that flowers are a standard gift from a date when one gets asked out. With the rising prices of literally everything in the world (including flowers), good luck with that one.
