    I was thinking about this and the negative connotation of attention whore -- I think it's true some people can be captivating or dynamic or become the center of attention, easily. The problem is when it is not appropriate or thoughtless. For instance, at someone's wedding, it's the couple's day. At someone's anniversary or birthday or retirement party, it's someone else's day. When someone is having a bad day and in the middle of telling people about it, it's their moment.

    I think what people may be nagging at 'attention whores' is this insensitivity or disregard for other people's moments? Even when trying to get the party going and thinking about making the mood fun for everyone, you can still unintentionally run over people or make some people feel like you're being "too much" or over stepping bounds (this may sound more like an EXFJ criticism that they are 'bossing' the mood of the group around)

    ^^
    Like classic ENFP sterotype Michael Scott from "The Office"

    Also, I think it's true that sometimes ENXPs are not trying to gather attention necessarily, they're just being annoying and acting up. They're Ne has ran away or gone on vacation while their Fe or Fi has having a field day extroverting all over the place.

    Having said all that again, I don't mind people actually intentionally being attention whores or a "little much" as long as they are entertaining and do it well. Now, if you're an attention whore and you're bad at it, that's a different story.
