Sorry if this is in the wrong place or just a dumb question. It honestly expect it to be rejected. However...
I'm curious if there's a term for the human inability to fully predict what it will be like living under the terms of a legal contract. I'm talking about having an intellectual understanding of the contract at the time of signing only to realize later that you didn't-- and couldn't-- predict the emotional response you would have to it.
To be clear, I'm not asking if the contract is legal or enforceable. I'm talking about an inability to truly, viscerally understand what life under the terms of the contract would be like at the time of signing.
This question has to do with a home owners' association. I believe it was impossible to truly understand how obnoxious and petty the HOA would be just by reading the text of the contract. I believe that they rely on this human characteristic to not fully "get it" until after the fact when it's too late. I'm wondering if others in my neighborhood have had the same reaction but I need a name to call it, if there is one.
