    Do You Like Being the Center of Attention?

    Everyone likes some attention, but the question is how much?

    Do you want to be the center of attention? Does attention flatter you or does it make you nervous?

    Please vote honestly.

    For some reason, It says I may not vote on polls.


    It depends. I do not cringe at receiving a compliment or praise....but I do not like having all focus on me. Perhaps it comes with being introverted.

    I also tend to dislike those who actively seek out fame and attention so they can feel good about themselves.

    Would definitely depend on the situation and the circumstances. But I am as a rule not attention-seeking, and my personality is a bit reserved to be honest. I do think I would find it exhausting with too much attention.

    The previous posters basically echo my sentiments. My closest friend wonders how I've not succumbed to cabin fever, as I spent many of my days at home in isolation.. It does bother me from time to time, but even when I do socialize, I need to "recharge" for awhile.

    I certainly dislike being the center of attention.

    Not at all. In fact, it makes me very nervous being the center of attention. Always has.

    My genetic makeup makes me not want to be the center of attention in too much of anything. It takes me awhile to open up with people so I usually kind of stay out of the limelight for awhile. I guess I am like my father in this respect. Now , no disrepect to people on this thread who do like the attention, but it seems to me people who do like attention are drama people. At least that is what I have experienced in my personal dealings with people.

    There has been times where I have been the center of attention, but I usually blush or shy away from this and my philosphy is that old saying,"out of sight,out of mind", so to speak. Now when I get to know someone more , I will open up and attention does go my way. But overall I shy away from such things.

    Entirely circumstantial. There have been times at parties or when I wish to make a group of people laugh that I enjoy being the center of attention, but at the same time I am not attention seeking, especially not overly attention seeking. For example I avoid flashy clothing or anything else that would draw purposeful attention to my person, and don't feel a need to always be in the spotlight.

    Its so strange how two similar situations can evoke an entirely different response. For example at school I could be in front of the whole class and joking with them and feel completely calm, and yet I could be in front of that same class reading a speech and feel nervous.

    Yes when it is beneficial, more often than not though it isn't but that's because my personality leads me to be center of attention alot of the time, but I am generally indifferent to it rather than dislike it.

    I have been told by close friends though, that I have little tact, that I unfairly judge people by my own standards, that I don't do well with provocation and that I am rather offensive without intending to be, also that I am habitually uncivilized.

    It would be interesting to compare answers against the time spent by each person online. I say this because it seems to me that those who spend a lot of time on internet forums are probably more introverted in general, and do not like to receive too much attention in real life. But this is just an observation of my own.

    Around new people or big groups of people, no. It makes me feel embarrassed and I start blushing, which makes me more embarrassed and so on . If I am with people I feel really comfortable around, then I'm fine with it although I can't say that I seek it out.
