    This is a real interesting read!

    Something that changed my opinion slightly on attention seeking was a study done on how different people communicate/how people are taught to. For example, certain people thinking that a way to show that they’re actively listening to you is to relate to you. So if you tell them a story or bring up a topic of conversation, to show you they were listening, they’ll try to one of their own experiences that relates to it and share it. Changed my perspective a little bit on people that “one-up” (although soemtimes people do actually do it to be shitty) xx

      Thank you! The results of that study don’t surprise me. I think most people try to connect and relate by bringing up similar stories. I usually do that when I comment on blogs to show I’ve read it and can understand.
      But I think there are people who try to outdo others, which can happen when someone has just received a new promotion or had some exciting news. xx

      Thank you Faye! Yes, I think everyone is on an attention seeking scale, but to different extents. xx

I would love to read your thoughts!
