Is it normal to play dumb for attention
I always crave attention from people around me but just find my real self boring. So, I occassionally play dumb like acting naive, being clumsy and mispronouncing things to get their attention for instances. Then, people get convinced and will usually laugh and give me the attention that I desire while they get to feel better and superior about themselves while they are around me. It's a win-win situation.
I even manage to nail some friends by doing so. I don't think I am going to stop pretending anytime soon.
