Quotation from the press:
Dr Christopher Hand, a lecturer in cyberpsychology, says the more details people disclose, the less sympathy we express when things go wrong. This could be due to a belief that we attract our own negative experiences the more we share them. It seems that sadfishing, the idea of searching for sympathy by oversharing, is generally perceived as negative rather than the cry for help it could actually be.
We have read many "the more...the more" pattern. Usually we believe when there is "the more", there must be another "the more" or comparative structure to complete the phrase. But here we don't see the second comparative. How should we understand the phrase quoted in bold? Does it mean the same as the more we attract our own negative experiences, the more we share them? Thank you
