Fake Sufferer X Mind Poisoner: Attention Seeker

this has been a very popular term

among my circle recently

even brought up in lecturer just now

why are people sharing and talking exceedingly

over the social network sites?

 

after going through the information as below

they are all so true

what the hell…

I just feel like puking

there are way too many people like this

to fit into each and every category

and even myself

is committing some of these behaviours


The following styles of attention seeking have been identified:

  • Extroverted positive overt style – associated with narcissism, bragging and boasting. May also include shocking exhibitionist behavior such as streaking.
  • Extroverted positive subdued style – similar but more subtle such as wearing designer clothes, wearing sexy clothes or dominating the conversation.
  • Extroverted negative overt style – to gain pity and reassurance.
  • Extroverted negative subdued style – making a negative statement to the world by, for example, dressing in an unusual style.

 


Different characteristics:

  • sufferer
  • saviour
  • rescuer
  • organizer
  • manipulator
  • mind poisoner
  • drama queen
  • busy bee
  • feigner
  • false confessor
  • abused
  • online victim
  • victim

The sufferer:

this might include feigning or exaggerating illness,

playing on an injury, or perhaps

causing or inviting injury,

in extreme cases going as far as losing a limb.

Severe cases may meet the diagnostic criteria for

Munchausen Syndrome

(also know as Factitious Disorder).

 

The illness or injury becomes a vehicle for

gaining sympathy and thus attention.

The attention-seeker excels in manipulating people

through their emotions, especially that of guilt.

It's very difficult not to feel sorry for

someone who relates a plausible tale of

suffering in a sob story or "poor me" drama.

The saviour:

in attention-seeking personality disorders like

Munchausen Syndrome By Proxy

(MSBP, also known as Factitious Disorder By Proxy)

the person creates opportunities to be

centre of attention by intentionally causing harm

to others and then being their saviour,

by saving their life,

and by being such a caring,compassionate person.

Few people realise the injury was deliberate.

 

The MSBP mother or nurse may kill several babies

before suspicions are aroused.

When not in saviour mode,

the saviour may be resentful,

perhaps even contemptuous,

of the person or persons she is saving.

The rescuer:

particularly common in family situations,

(s)he's the one who will dash in and "rescue" people

whenever the moment is opportune -

to himself, that is.

he then gains gratification from

basking in the glory of his humanitarian actions.

he will prey on any person suffering misfortune,

infirmity, illness, injury,

or anyone who has a vulnerability.

 

The act of rescue and thus the opportunities for

gaining attention can be enhanced

if others are excluded from the act of rescue;

this helps create a dependency relationship between

the rescuer and rescued which

can be exploited for further acts of rescue

(and attention) later.

When not in rescue mode,

the rescuer may be resentful, perhaps even

contemptuous, of the person she is rescuing.

The organiser:

she may present herself as the one in charge,

the one organising everything,

the one who is reliable and dependable,

the one people can always turn to.

 

However, the objective is not to help people

(this is only a means to an end) but

to always be the centre of attention.

The manipulator:

he may exploit family relationships,

manipulating others with

guilt and distorting perceptions;

although she may not harm people physically,

she causes everyone to suffer emotional injury.

 

Vulnerable family members are favourite targets.

A common attention-seeking ploy is to

claim she is being persecuted, victimised,

excluded, isolated or ignored

by another family member or group,

perhaps insisting she is the target

of a campaign of exclusion or harassment.

The mind-poisoner:

adept at poisoning peoples' minds by

manipulating their perceptions of others,

especially against the current target.

 

The drama queen:

every incident or opportunity,

no matter how insignificant, is exploited, exaggerated

and if necessary distorted to

become an event of dramatic proportions.

Everything is elevated to crisis proportions.

 

Histrionics may be present where

the person feels she is not

the centre of attention but should be.

Inappropriate flirtatious behaviour

may also be present.

The busy bee:

this individual is the busiest person

in the world if her constant retelling of

her life is to be believed.

 

Everyday events which are regarded

as normal by normal people

take on epic proportions

as everyone is invited to

simultaneously admire and

commiserate with this oh-so-busy person

who never has a moment to herself,

never has time to sit down, etc.

She's never too busy, though,

to tell you how busy she is.

The feigner:

when called to account and outwitted,

the person instinctively uses the

denial - counterattack - feigning victimhood strategy

to manipulate everyone present,

especially bystanders and those in authority.

 

The most effective method of

feigning victimhood is to

burst into tears,

for most people's instinct is

to feel sorry for them,

to put their arm round them or

offer them a tissue.

There's little more plausible than real tears,

although as actresses know,

it's possible to turn these on at will.

Feigners are adept at using crocodile tears.

 

From years of practice,

attention-seekers often give an

Oscar-winning performance in this respect.

Feigning victimhood is a favourite tactic of

bullies and harassers to

evade accountability and sanction.

 

The false confessor:

this person confesses to crimes

they haven't committed in order to

gain attention from the police and the media.

In some cases people have confessed to

being serial killers, even though

they cannot provide any

substantive evidence of their crimes.

 

Often they will confess to crimes

which have just been reported in the media.

Some individuals are know to the police

as serial confessors.

The false confessor is different from

a person who make a false confession and

admits to a crime of which

they are accused because of

emotional pressure and

inappropriate interrogation tactics.

The abused:

a person claims they are the victim of

abuse, sexual abuse, rape etc

as a way of gaining attention for themselves.

Crimes like abuse and rape

are difficult to prove at the best of times and

their incidence is so common that

it is easy to make a plausible claim as

a way of gaining attention.

The online victim:

this person uses Internet chat rooms and forums to

allege that they've been the victim of

rape, violence, harassment, abuse etc.

The alleged crime is never reported

to the authorities, for obvious reasons.

The facelessness and anonymity of

the Internet suits this type of attention seeker.

 

The victim:

she may intentionally create acts of

harassment against herself,

eg send herself hate mail or

damage her own possessions

in an attempt to incriminate

a fellow employee, a family member, neighbour, etc.

 

Scheming, cunning, devious,

deceptive and manipulative,

she will identify her "harasser" and

produce circumstantial evidence

in support of her claim.

She will revel in the attention she gains and

use her glib charm to

plausibly dismiss any suggestion that

she herself may be responsible.

However, a background check may

reveal that this is not the first time

she has had this happen to her.

 

In many cases the attention-seeker is

a serial bully whose behaviour

contains many of the characteristics

listed under the profile of a serial bully,

especially the Attention-Seeker.

 


stages of attention seeking:

  • Awareness
  • Approach
  • Escalation
  • Extreme Escalation
  • Catastrophic Collapse Into Autism

 

1. Awareness

Here, the creature (child, dog, cat, horse) first

becomes aware that the shortfall exists and

begins to look around for a likely “other”

who may fulfil this need.

2. Approach

The creature will get up and

start approaching the other and

make some minor signs that

it is in need of some attention.

 

In an animal,

that would probably be just

coming over and presenting themselves

whilst looking at the other.

3. Escalation

If the other ignores

“refuses to provide the attention energy”

this subtle approach,

creature A will now escalate

its behaviours to “break on through”

the barrier of ignoring –

make sounds, push physically,

engage in behaviours that

have previously worked to “gain attention”.

4. Extreme Escalation

If these higher level behaviours are also ignored,

the need turns to a pain and

will now drive consecutively

more extreme behaviour in turn

in a direct cause and effect relationship.

If the need is high enough,

the creature may even attack.

5. Catastrophic Collapse Into Autism

If still no energy is forthcoming,

the system collapses in on itself

in a catastrophic implosion which

causes severe neurological damage;

the stage beyond rage is autism,

where the creature can

no longer elicit the energy required nor

process it when it is being offered because

of the damage sustained by

the receptors of the energy processing system

during the catastrophe.

Nazi propaganda provided a crucial instrument for

acquiring and maintaining power,

and for the implementation of their policies,

including the pursuit of total war and

the extermination of millions of people

in the Holocaust.

The pervasive use of propaganda by

the Nazis is largely responsible for

the word "propaganda"  itself

acquiring its present negative connotations

Flight Searcher X Deal Scouter: Skyscanner

winter plan taking a turn

now there’s someone who is willing to travel

and her schedule is 100% the same like mine!!

next question

where to head to?

 

we spent the whole afternoon

in lab during the free and easy class

researching where to go

 

but it’s not so easy

since it is already late September

with RM 200, the furthest we can go is Langkawi

 

whereas

if you are booking much in advance

under RM 200 can bring you to

Asean and some Asian destination already

 

or to maximum the fun

we can go as far as our budget allows

summer at the southern hemisphere for RM 1.2k

or

winter at the northern hemisphere

which was my initial winter plan

but at RM 2000+

 

and the AirAsia website

which always screws up

during promotion period

they direct you to the waiting room

and it’s never-ending

 

non-promotion period

they keep returning the error code

whenever you are trying to

refresh the page to another date

just to look for better deal

 

fret not!!!

here’s your savior

skyscanner

 

http://www.skyscanner.net/

external flight search

for airlines all over the world

 

 

and it’s even more efficient and stable

than Airasia

when it comes to searching Airasia flight

 

Eg:

there is this monthly view

daily price are displayed

 

and you can even make your search

crossing months and year

going on Dec, 2011

coming back on Feb, 2011?

no problem

 

which Airasia always returns error code

because they have two servers

one for those flying before 1st Jan

one for those after 31st Dec

so what if I am flying on 30th Dec

and returning on 2nd Jan

error code is what they give you

 

OMG

I think I am being addicted to this

Skyscaner monthly view flight plan

been playing with it for different destination

 

Japan this winter?

less than a thousand ringgit?

impossible…

Skyscanner monthly-view search

 

yup..

Skyscanner doesn’t lie

when I cross-check with Airasia

both ways are promo prices

and perfect take-offs on Sundays

Kuala Lumpur - Japan

 

London:

before that I thought Kuwaits Air gives

the lowest on earth at RM 2.6k

wait a minute

this is even cheaper

Skyscanner London search

 

then..

cross-checking with Airasia again

both ways promo

both ways promo

 

therefore the total is..

accurate as provided by Skyscanner

they are way faster though

and directly giving you the price

tax, what what surcharges included

London-Kuala Lumpur

 

and even if you do not know

where you really want to go

just go for the Everywhere search

and they give you a list of places you can go to

2011.09.27 Skyscanner Everywhere

 

so how??

RM 200 langkawi or

RM 2000 London

this is a tough decision to make, really

 

it’s no longer about

how expensive the flight ticket is already

  • do you have the time
  • do you have the right companion
  • do you have the travelling plan

Too Hot X Fear Not: Sunburn Spot

To Live X Is to Believe: A to Zen of Life

A-Z of Life by Dalai Lama

 

Avoid negative sources, people, places and habits

 

Believe in yourself

 

Consider things from every angle

 

Don’t give up and don’t give in

 

Everything you’re looking for lies behind the mask you wear

 

Family & friends are hidden treasures, seek them and enjoy their riches

 

Give more than you planned to

 

Hang on to your dreams

 

If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door

 

Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it

 

Keep trying no matter how hard it seems

 

Love yourself

 

Make it happen

 

Never lie, steal or cheat

 

Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values

 

Practice Makes Perfect

 

Quality not quantity in anything you do

 

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer

 

Stop procrastinating

 

Take control of your own destiny

 

Understand yourself in order to better understand others

 

Visualize it

 

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson

 

Xcellence in all your efforts

 

You’re unique, nothing can replace you

 

Zero in on your target and go for it

 

Live One Day at a Time – Dalai Lama

何處有淨土 X 哪裡無寒露: 完美孤獨

when I posted the song 《天使藍》 yesterday

I was trying to say something

but insufficiency of words

 

喜歡看書 就看到日出

[if enjoy reading

then just read till the sun rise]

 

thank goodness I heard this song on radio

OMG

exactly…

this is what I meant and mean to say

 

basically

I am fine with staying single myself

without any interruption to my life

and having things at my own pace

 

yet there is always this indignation

to see people around coupling up

if they can

then why can’t I have one

am I lacking of something

don’t I deserve something better than this

 

ultimately

it’s your own psychology that matters

just like if I am not interested in designer’s bag

even if you tell me your L-VEE bag costs you

like a price of a small car

I would be indifferent still

 

anyway back to the song

the striking two lines

which put a poetic ending to the lyric

孤...身...身處何處有淨土

獨...立...立在哪裡無寒露

 

no matter where you are

there are things that constantly

remind you of imperfections

that you can’t

lay your hands and mind off

 

unless you choose to be

completely shut yourself off

do not go anywhere

and do not watch and listen to anything

 

if you just don’t give a damn

nobody and nothing

can influence or even harm you

in anyway

as they like it

 

god of lyric… 林夕

I wish to just get down on my knee

and pray to him

再沒有誰的臉色 須要照顧
也沒有誰的難題 須要應付 嗚
一個人睡著 或睡不著
喜歡看書 就看到日出 嗚

再沒有人有機會 讓我受苦
也沒有人有能力 讓我認輸 嗚
何必再等誰 一起訴苦


各自忙碌 有甚麼好處 嗚

盲目如何變反目
愛的程序我早已爛熟
可是說 伴侶是身外之物
我又不甘 不服
我希望覺悟 又害怕麻木
單身的好日子 有沒有虛渡
再完美的孤獨算不算美中不足

嗚.... .......

一切心血再不會 白白付出
所有時間怎麼過 由我作主
愛過的愛人 一個個數
誰給過我 這一種滿足 喔

愛情有一本帳簿
從盈到虧我早已爛熟
可是說 伴侶是身外之物
我又不甘 不服
我希望覺悟 又害怕麻木
單身的好日子 有沒有虛渡
再完美的孤獨算不算美中不足

嗚.... .......

不再相信天使 卻信凝望你時

若插翼難展翅 情願因你脫下純白羽衣
戀愛難 不想更難 苦戀那時 不得已

慢慢地學會痛心
慢慢地學會化身 普通人
還怎能 無償地 拼命愛別人
慢慢地習慣碎心
慢慢地明瞭情感 的陰暗
才可跟你 走得更近

天國跟我很遠 情人留在眼前
不會團圓 迷戀也有福 不敢抱怨
不會視而不見 純真總被歲月 去污染
反正 誰都會有這一天

若插翼難展翅 情願因你脫下純白羽衣
戀愛難 不想更難 苦戀那時 不得已

慢慢地學會痛心
慢慢地學會化身 普通人
還怎能 無償地 拼命愛別人
慢慢地習慣碎心
慢慢地明瞭情感 的陰暗
怎給你這天使之吻

慢慢地學會痛心
慢慢地學會化身 普通人
還怎能 無邪地 撲入那風塵
慢慢地習慣碎心
慢慢地墮進無底 的深吻
比登上仙境更吸引

Real Insight X Smooth Ride: Melaka Tour Guide

from the previous post

Fine Character X Faith Factor: Funeral Director

 

this is my first ever website

a tourism website

invested helluva of time and effort

 

yet it doesn’t pay

my poorest subject of the semester

despite the one I spent the most time with

curse it

now can you at least understand

why I just wish to get rid of Photoshop

 

I am really sure I deserve a better score

although there are flaws

yet giving the photos and information

everything taken and written on my own

rather than copy-pasting from the net

 

now you understand

why I would rather becoming a funeral director

this semester

 

life is always like that

sometimes

therefore set no expectation

 

Homepage of MelakaEatPlayStayWayAbout

Fine Character X Faith Factor: Funeral Director

stephysiology - the dark version

supposed to design an individual website

reflecting my dream career

never really take a fancy in it

 

becoming a writer?

with an open-book design?

nay I have already done it last sem

and Her Highness is doing that design already

 

people think of a profession

then design the website

but for me,

it is just another way round

 

I want to do an all-black design

a job not everyone is doing

then came up with this job

Funeral Director!!

 

quite happy with the design

except the fact that

my lecturer insisting the coffin on the homepage

since the first criteria of a homepage is

it must reflect CLEARLY what your profession is

 

at first I was planning to insert this

which reflects the road to be taken

the winding journey ahead

bw47

 

anyway

just glad that it is over now

the fact that I spent a few hours in lab

patching up the website

comparing to the hours stuck at home last sem

this is already a pretty good leap

 

am I seriously

considering funeral director as a job?

maybe…

Non-Stopping X Shoes-Hopping: Dream-Shopping

dreamed of going shopping with Cheryl last night

and it was in conjunction of CNY

every single details is all so clear

 

the location

it doesn’t seem like a particular place

I know of for real

 

items that I bought

iPanema flip flops

exactly as what I have seen in real life

there were at least twice occasions

I thought of buying

yet considering the fact that

I still have a few pairs

just gave up for the time being

but

how come I am buying them in my dream??

IPanema flip flops

 

ballet flats from Nike

something similar to the one in the photo

I like them so much

because they do not look Nike at all

I even plan to get rid of the lace

after I get home

Blue ballet flat

 

an iPad sling bag

there isn’t any price tag

except a USD 23 tag

therefore I went to the counter

to scan the product

and decided to buy it

since it is only RM 54

cocoon-innovations-ipad-messenger-bag

 

then my mom is here

seeing me buying the sling bag

she said it’s fine

since it’s something practical

but not knowing that I am planning to buy

the other two previous items too

 

no.. in real life

I never lie to my mom about my shopping

I just choose to tell her

in a delayed manner

revealing items one at a time

 

then Cheryl has to leave

since it is CNY

and she has to meet up with her relatives

 

is there any sign

to dream of shopping??

or it is just normal

since that’s what I do the best during day time

Stephelle’s Kitchen: Tomyam Laksa

this is rice noodle

meant for cooking laksa

the northern version with fish

rice noodle

 

the instruction written is

1 hour of soaking in hot water

indeed soften the noodle itself

is taking longer than usual

even longer than cooking brown rice

soaking and boiling of more than 1 hour

 

tomyam paste + homemade sambal paste =

Tomyam laksa

Tomyam laksa

 

somehow everytime

whenever I am trying to

cook something soup-based

it turned out that

I have to boil a kettle of water

and pour into my dried-up pond

 

perfect treat for a rainy day

and it actually got me sweating

on a the cold breezy evening

希有之事 X 以戒為師:五濁惡世

五濁

  • 命濁是眾生因煩惱叢集,心身交瘁,壽命短促;
  • 眾生濁是世人每多弊惡,心身不淨,不達義理;
  • 煩惱濁是世人貪於愛欲,瞋怒諍鬥,虛誑不已;
  • 見濁是世人知見不正,不奉正道,異說紛紜,莫衷一是;
  • 劫濁是生當末世,飢饉疾疫刀兵等相繼而起,生靈塗炭,永無寧日。

 

惡世

即濁惡之世。

此時煩惱、邪見熾盛,

且人壽短促,苦多而樂少。

據法華經卷一方便品載,

惡世中有劫濁、見濁、煩惱濁、眾生濁、命濁等五濁,

其時眾生垢重,成就諸不善根,

故諸佛以方便力應機示教,

於一佛乘分別說三乘之法。

 

阿彌陀經(大一二‧三四八上):

「釋迦牟尼佛能為甚難希有之事,

能於娑婆國土,

五濁惡世,劫濁、見濁、煩惱濁、眾生濁、命濁中,

得阿耨多羅三藐三菩提。」

 

蓋正法時代,眾生煩惱薄少,

人人自行十善,且其壽命長達數萬歲;

反之,末法時代,

惡世界、惡眾生、惡見、惡煩惱、惡邪、無信熾盛之時

特稱之為惡世或惡時。

〔安樂集卷上、觀經疏散善義〕p4946

五戒

  • 不殺生
  • 不偷盜
  • 不邪淫
  • 不妄語
  • 不飲酒

 

十善

  • 不杀生:谓不杀害一切物命,即是止杀之善。非但不杀,还当行放生之善。
  • 不偷盗:谓不窃取他人财物,即是止偷盗之善。非但不盗,还当行布施之善。
  • 不邪淫:谓不行邪淫情欲事,即是止淫之善。既除邪淫,还当行清净梵行之善。

Appetizer X Getting Better: Smurf’s Grabber

Smurfs' Grabber

 

pretty straight forward and easy-to-play game

1 minutes game of

grabbing the ingredients on the floor

to produce the material

as displayed in the recipe tab

eg:

white mushroom + orange + red mushroom = blue potion

Papa Smurf's Lab

 

the end-products for each game

XP earned + materials created

End-of-Game

 

the material collected

can be traded among each other

for the rare one

Smurfs' Store

 

and eventually for the different Power-Ups

it’s actually quite fun to do the calculation

Power-up Trading

 

power-ups

character items function
Baby Smurf bell rattle increase chance to get rare recipes
Baby Smurf ball rattle increase recipe timer
Hefty barbell slows down the ingredients
Brainy glasses double all XP collected
Jokey gift random powerup
Vanity mirror double the materials you collect
Painter brush get 1 ingredient automatically

 

 

the stork will fly by,

holding the power-up item

click on it then the item will fall

then grab it

the stork

 

how the power-ups work:

a few power-ups can work simultaneously

for a specific duration across different games

eg:

Vanity’s mirror and Painter’s brush are working to

double up the material (two blue potion can be created at once)

get 1 ingredient automatically (a green tick for the green mushroom)

Papa Smurf's Lab Power's Up

 

with the XP collected,

you may get level-up

and create new materials

Level Up screen

 

at level 10

you get to enter Greedy’s Bakery

which is more difficult than

the game in Papa’s Lab

Greedy Smurf's Bakery

 

and Smurfette’s Garden

at level 20

obviously, the most difficult among all

Smurfette's Garden

 

the difficulty level differs by:

  • similarity in the ingredients, you ending up collecting the wrong one
  • more ingredients are needed to create a rare material
  • the ingredients shift place more often
  • flowers which is smaller in size, requires precise grabbing

 

grabbing tips:

focusing on the shadow of the ingredient

 

actually in the first place

i did not find the game interesting

but out of curiosity for this

content for my Smurf’s Village???

i continued playing

Content for Smurf's Village

 

now that it was revealed

you can create some orange colour items

for your Smurfs’ Village

that’s all???

but i have already fallen in love with the game

that i would continue playing

despite of the disappointment for this

quite good-for-nothing content for my village

Smurfs grabber Smurfs village Trading

 

to maximize the power-ups and

getting rid of the limited game restriction

many people complained that the game is a trick

since you can only play a game of 1 minute

for every two hours

or you should buy the coin for playing

with REAL MONEY

which i never will

Next Free Coin in...

 

but for me

i just pace the time for playing

1 coin for every 2 hours

maximum coins collected in 5 = 10 hours

therefore i play the game on a 12 hours basis

once in the morning, another at night

 

additionally

playing 5 games in a row

can fully utilize the power-ups

since some power-ups can last up to 5 minutes

 

easier trading

if you find it difficult to recognize the

various type of cupcakes and desserts

or the different bouquets of flowers

identify the colours of the plate then

or for the flowers: the bouquet holder

store trading
