Attention seeking behavior is to act in a way that is likely to elicit attention, usually to elicit validation from others.
People have diverse characters that they exhibit in their daily lives. Some of such characters are attention seekers who can either exaggerate a situation to gain sympathy, help, or even someone’s time. Some of them will even say something that will result to an angry reaction just to gain people’s attention. Below are several signs that you might be an attention seeker;
1. You Are Nice to Everyone
Attention seekers often act nicely to everyone they meet especially for the first time. They do this not because they love socializing but they want to attract full attention to themselves. They, with time, take their long term friends for granted.
2. You Flaunt Everything Online
Attention seekers often flaunt their issues such as problems and challenges to their close relatives or even to their online friends most of whom they barely know. They do this just to crave for sympathy, likes and comments.
3. You Are Always Causing Arguments
Attention seekers are always determined to get it and therefore they do anything within their power to have it. They will consistently cause arguments for no apparent reason just to get the attention of those who they are arguing with. They do not care whether the argument is positive or negative provided they get the attention they need.
