The Attention Hog

The Attention Hog
Always creating a scene, making sure that everyone around pays attention, and generally being in the middle of everything are the signs of the attention hog. If the focus of a crowd, whether in a small or large group setting, is not on the attention hog, this individual tends to get extremely upset due to illusions of grandeur.

Of the “Look at me! Look at me!” variety, this person is egocentric and has the need to consistently be in the spotlight with almost no regard for other’s feelings. This person is generally not a spectacular friend as the need to be the centre of attention overrides the need for listening to others and giving others focus.

In reality, this person is actually very insecure, seeking the attention of others for validation. At least they’re entertaining to be around!
