Exactly. I can assure you I consider myself the most capable, lucid, flawless, intelligent and attentive driver on the planet. I never make mistakes, I see everybody perfectly, regardless of changing weather and light conditions. Unfortunately, me being so brilliant leaves the rest of the human race quite inferior, and thus I prefer to protect myself and possibly other drivers as well. So, as an act of mercy, I choose to be well seen, hopefully reducing the risk of being smashed up by some moron. For me, I am infallible..

It’s used often on communication training programmes the trainers brief says it’s because we process the phonetic sound of the letters as that’s how we are taught to read. ‘Of’ is processed as ‘Ov’ so we don’t count/see the F.

I think sospans reference to sacadic eye movement seems the most plausible explanation to the classic "sorry didn't see you mate" scenario.

My brother, a taxi driver proud of his vigilance, knocked a cyclist off his bike pulling out of a T junction some time ago. We discussed the event in depth later down the pub. Mitigating factors were the broad blind spot from the shallow angle screen pillar of his Renault C5, but we agreed the speed and duration of his right left scan particularly at a familiar junction close to home, was the route cause of missing seeing the cyclist.

With advancing age I find myself gradually easing out of awkward rural junctions and doing a double take on my scan nowadays.
