    not exactly. I'll admit, it's certainly a perk until the attention turns negative, but not the underlying motivation. often I start to think "ugh why it have to come to this? I never should have made this thread" I think the reason I make lots of threads is that I'm trying I'm fishing for possible sources of genuine conversation. what tends to happen then is I'll throw in some sort of anecdotal evidence that people will refute and then question me as a person in some way which kind of spirals into endless debates on semantic topics related to me. this is actually why I try to post threads that are either clearly about me, or not about me at all. often I'm just as frustrated as everyone else when I start a good, intellectual thread and it turns into "let's team up on Elfboy". that's fun every once in a while, but it does get really annoying after a while.

    you don't sound mean, it's easy to see how you might think that.

    Fair enough.

    Curious though - do you prefer negative attention, or no attention at all?

    You certainly seem to be one of those polarizing people - ie. people have very strong negative or positive reactions to you - see the thread I made on that subject. In my experience with friends and acquaintances who have that effect, they are almost always ExxPs!

    Do you refer by "polarizing people" to people whose opinions are different from the "common opinions" or do you mean people whose opinions are omnipresent because of the mere quantity ?!

    oh goodness I am extremely polarizing lol. I had group in high school that secretly thought I was amazing (but kept to themselves because my reputation was terrible lol) and a larger group that legitimately wanted to kill me. my response was to become more polarizing until the group that wanted to kill me became afraid of me and began to keep to themselves as well. as a result, everyone had a strong opinion of me, but no one would talk to me, and to be perfectly honest I kinda like it that way if I'm around people who are stupid or ignorant.
    'to answer your question, I prefer negative attention it if offers actionable information. normal negative attention is fun every once in a while to stir the waters, excercise my Te and 8 wing and get a chance to be fiery and defiant without holding back on people like I usually do. that being said, I certainly seem to get much more negative attention than is preferable. perhaps I say things in a way that makes people react to me as opposed to just stating where and how they disagree?

    polarizing means you are an intense, high energy person who is charismatic and probably highly opinionated. as a result, people either love you, hate you are think "wow he just sucked all the air out of the room, I think I'm going to suffocate" needless to say, introverts most of the time tend to dislike polarizing people

    You really have to redefine 'polarizing' and 'pesky'

    Just keep rolling with this one. You seem like you'd annoy the hell out of me in real life, too much talking. You don't seem introverted that much, if at all. But, you know, keep on keeping on... it's all good.

    that actually kinda relates to what I was just saying about being polarizing.
    polarizing means you are an intense, high energy person who is charismatic and probably highly opinionated. as a result, people either love you, hate you are think "wow he just sucked all the air out of the room, I think I'm going to suffocate" needless to say, introverts most of the time tend to dislike polarizing people
    most introverts can't stand me because I suck all the air out of the room, except for INTJs who seem to be amused by me
