And it annoys me when nobody wants to hear from me.

    I was wondering if anybody had any useful advice. So far, suffering through those periods has been the only option.
    Maybe you have histrionic personality disorder.

    But, at the same time, I am also like this:

    I think having an awareness of and sensitivity towards other people helps. I mean, if introverted peeps think I'm (overly) attention seeking (even if I do not believe I am), I wouldn't want to constantly irritate them with behavior that sends the message that I am all about being in the limelight.

    I actually got some attention last night (Unh!). No, actually, I went out for karyoke with some of my friends. Gathered the ego to get up there, sober, and sang "Who's Your Daddy?" by Toby Keith. Great song in the right range for me. Crowd was pumped and clapped me on. When I finished I caught bits of a conversation: "...I've never seen him before...", people high fived me and told me "great job on the mic" for the rest of the night. Even my detail oriented ESTJ pack leader was impressed--well he said I was spot on, which is high praise coming from him, especially about a song that was a [insert dropping his own name here] classic.
    Love is the point.
