Gain insight and ask if you are an attention seeker

Social media serves as a forum for attention seekers whereby anyone can 'get all the attention they want.' We're sucked into the belief that how something looks is more important than how something is.

Attention seekers are narcissists thirsty for sensation in a state of superficiality over essentialism. 

Dan Trepanier

Mentor Coach, Are You An Attention Seeker?

Maybe you are an attention seeker?

  • Does your need to feel accepted overshadow your ability to be genuine? Are you trying too hard to belong — at any expense?
  • Do you struggle to find that real sense of significance, both in yourself and others?
  • Are you someone who craves attention to such an extent that you will do anything to receive it?
  • Will you do almost anything to be heard, noticed or accepted?

Seeking attention is a provocative behaviour ripe with hysterical reactions.

Andy Warhol predicted that everyone would be famous for at least fifteen minutes in life. Some say Warhol was one of the biggest attention seekers of the last century.

Social media serves as a forum for attention seekers whereby anyone can ‘get all the attention they want.’

We’re sucked into the belief that how something looks is more important than how something is.

In this regard, attention seekers are well-adapted individuals to our modern social media times. Thirsty for sensation, we allow attention seekers to play a role and meet a need. It is a state of superficiality over essentialism. Private life has morphed into a PR stunt.

Attention seekers struggle to understand themselves or others with authenticity.

The whole world is a stage when you over(re)act. Attention seekers believe it’s their destiny to receive a standing ovation.

Attention seekers would sacrifice their authenticity for attention because it makes them feel alive. The problem is that avoiding realism leads to feelings of emptiness and inadequacy. — and that’s not cool!

Not knowing how to deal with discomfort can lead you to ask: How do I become more desirable? Instead of; What is my desire?

Life is a movie in constant flux to attention seekers – like a chameleon on a shifting backdrop. Do I craft a comedy, drama or tragedy? It does not matter as long as I play the leading role.

Attention seekers tend to be poor listeners, talk too much and say little of substance. They struggle to understand others and miss on profound connections. Their bonds are fake. After hanging out with you a few times, I will call you their best friend. (But you don’t even know me)

As long as you play the attention-seeking game, your authentic self-will not feel significant.
