I do think trolling that has no objective other than to get attention is pretty common too though...
    I guess I have the advantage then!

    Attention craving and attention whoring are different concepts. The latter is compulsive while the former is not.

    According to Freud, I guess my parents were too nice and attentive- - I love gum...

    HI GUYS! Can I come post in your thread!



    How would you tell the difference between attention whoring and being the type of person that not consciously just always draws attention?

    Hmmm..interesting. By that definition, I would be an attention craver, rather than an attention whore. But why would one whore for attention if it is not compulsive? Some sort of gained status or profit?

    One wouldn't. If you took a picture once in your life that doesn't make you a photographer. If it's not compulsive it's not called whoring. That' my point.

    To answer the question "why would one crave for attention and not whore for attention" : well you can crave for something a few times in your life (like eating sushi) and not obsess over it. Whoring for sushi means you'd be around japanese restaurants 24/7.
