I found one thing interesting. While I wouldn't be surprised my expectations often affect my perceptions in much the way this article described, I noticed one exception, namely the last example given: movies.

In fact the build up of expectations seems to usually result in me thinking the movie is worse, and vice versa. I wonder if this is just some weird reverse psychology or if something more interesting is going on.
