I like the term self-edifying truths, but that seems to have a Christian connotation

comment Name for awareness of the probability of an event increasing the probability of it happening
In my answer, I covered this situaion in markets, which is a more common example. "it increases the death rate through speeding through an increased belief in the statement's validity." It is a reassessment of the beliefs of drivers that changes the frequency of death. Suppose you only told one person that probability speeding kills. Now their probability of dying goes up because they've reassessed their beliefs. They're more likely to die because they believe they will.
