hey guys, i do not shy away from saying that i am an attention seeker by nature. I love being noticed by people when i am outside. I always want people to be the center of attraction wherever i go. I know this sounds a bit weird but this is the reality. I was not good looking when i was small and was low in my personality then. I had been bullied most of the times at school also just because i was never open with others. But still i have stayed calm and composed all the time and have always stayed in front of my critics by showing my talent and potential. Not only i was good at studies but was an all rounder also in dance, songs, debate, acting, essay and sports. i have worked so hard to look to the best of my efforts and have worked progressively to improvise my talent and personality. That is the reason why i am an attention seeker by nature and i am proud of it. What do u have to say about this? Are u attention seeker like me? Please do share your thoughts!

Everybody likes to get attention at times but one shouldn't act or dress strange or unnatural to get attention. One should get attention by doing something in which he/she is brilliant Do what you're good at & everybody will notice you.

Thanks a ton for sharing your valuable response. Well yes u are absolutely right, no doubt every body wants to grab the attention while being in a crowd but it should be remembered that by behaving or wearing weird is not a good way of grabbing the attention. We should prove our worth in such a way that people take notice of us in a positive way. What say?

I am the opposite. I prefer people mostly leave me alone to be myself. I don't mind if say I used to play music in a band.. attention in that way is fien but even then I don't want to be center. I am afraid I'd just look silly anyway.

Thanks a ton for sharing your valuable response. Ha ha ha, well that is absolutely fine and i think it is better even when we are left alone in our case. I think u should never take this as your negative point. if u can stay away from the crowd and yet show your prowess then u are the real star. What say?

Well to be quite honest where studies and etc is concern but I don't go well with attention seekers. Well for me, I dont go about the place trying to be the centre of attention, it just happens. It is different from your case because in my case, I am reserved and because of my reputation everybody start showing me attention. It seem you go out of your way to get attention, I don't. Also to let you know I do not like attention. I prefer to be a little private man, just mixed in the crowds. Attention to me make everything worse. I use to have a friend, well I still have that friend that love to seek attention. Everywhere he goes. He has more knowledge than me but I am smarter than him. What I mean is that I understand things and learn much faster than he does. He got jealous of my potential so he decided to study day and night to surpass me. At the end of the day, if he studied something for three weeks, I could studied for only 2 days and still get the same grade as his. He is what we referred to as FORCED smart. But I respected him because he tried a lot. After he build his knowledge on everything, both essential and non essential, he became the one to start seeking attention of it. They started to refer to him as EINSTEIN. You know that famous scientist, because he knew everything. The problem now was that, everybody didn't like him because even though he knew everything he couldn't maintain at the top. Like I said I would still beat him with my limited knowledge. So what happened now was that because my friend show off so much, any time he got a low grade, everyone would laugh after him and he would feel embarrass. Any time I got a low grade, people assume that I just didn't bother to study and no one laughs. You see the difference, I got my attention by just being quiet and nothing else. So every year he would go at it in is exams. Through out the school year he showed off to everyone how "smart" he was. And every year I got over him and he felt bad. There are a few times he got over me, and I never felt anything. I told him congrats every time. But the rest of times when I got over him, he just gave me an angry look. I remember specifically just before a physics exam, he is going around telling everybody he can answer every question. Everybody saw him as annoying because everybody wanted to do the last look over. He showed off about how much he knew in physics. Couple days after the exam was mark he got one of the lowest grade and the professor embarrassed him badly. Those people who seek attention get a lot of praises with accomplishments but if you shall ever fail, you would be so much more embarrassed than another individual.

Thanks a ton for sharing your valuable response. Well that is absolutely fine if u do not like to seek attention from people around u. i think it is also better to stay away from them and yet attract them with your talent ability and personality. in that case u do not have to toil hard to seek attention from then which is very good. What say?
