Attention seeking

Enjoying the attention of others is quite socially acceptable. In some instances, however, the need for attention can lead to difficulties. The term attention seeking (or attention-seeking) is generally reserved for such situations, where excessive and “inappropriate attention seeking” is seen.

Examples of attention seeking include:

* the man who complains loudly in a restaurant so that everyone will notice
* the girl who wears the skimpiest of outfits on a cold winter night
* the mother who sighs loudly and crashes the dinner dishes about so that the family will hear that she's a martyr to domesticity
* the child who has a tantrum in the supermarket
* the teenager who feigns illness to obtain sympathy.
