AWD - Attention Whore Disorder
can be divided into different AWD subcategories:
- IAWD = Internet Attention Whore Disorder
This attention whore disorder is shown in individuals who seek infinite amount of attention in their Internet activity and existence.
This can include e.g. bragging about their love life or the lack of it, their personal relations details, the details of their job, or their sex life, or anything that they consider interesting for the public, from the problems they have in seeking a legal status of residence in a country to rumor mangering and rumor whoring about products such as new phones or computers or operating systems.
- RLAWD = Real Life Attention Whore Disorder
This type is similar to IAWD, but it manifests in the Real Life, aka not in the Internet.
However a mixed type - with IAWD and RLAWD, and any AWD to aany AWD, is surely possible a combination.
- MKAWD = My Kids Attention Whore Disorder
This type of AWD affected person uses words such as "my kids", "my kids", "my kids" "[kids name]" "[kids name}" in every situation possible. It becomes a disorder when it is not appropriate to talk about the kids. E.g. while troubleshooting your computer, mobile phone, or internet connection; while discussing work related issues at work, or while goig out with people that are not interested in Your Kids.
- BAWD = Breeder Attention Whore Disorder
BAWD is close to MKAWD. Breeder is more of generic pro-human-reproductivity kind than actually talking about [his/her kids] all the time. BAWD and MKAWD and PAWD can and often do coexist. BAWD affected people bingo the others about why they don't want to have kids, even when the topic is gardening or how to cook octopus with rice.
BAWD people do not believe anyone can or does want to NOT have kids, and whatever was the original discussion, they do their best to direct the discussion back to human breeding.
- PAWD = Pregnant Attention Whore Disorder
A sufferer of often BAWD and MKAWD, PAWD takes all the attention available to his or her pregnancy. Again this becomes an AWD when the others are talking about a non-pregnancy related movie, science fiction, cooking, sports, ANYTHING but pregnancy and human reproductional choices.
- HAWD = Health Attention Whore Disorder
HAWD sufferer draws attention to him/herself constantly talking about his/her health issues - thus all conversation and topics become involved in whatever, real or imaginary, health issue the HAWD sufferer has - this can include pregnancy in which case the HAWD sufferer also and in specific has PAWD.
- DAWD = Dressing Attention Whore Disorder
DAWD sufferer dresses in improper ways to get attention, and even to "not" get attention.
This includes e.g. wearing a tiny top and mini skirt at office in a male environment; wearing a dress while grocery shopping; wearing anything in any situation that is far overkill for the situation in question, or highly ignores the set expectations of dressing.
- MRAWD = Mac Rumors Attention Whore Disorder
MRAWD is a subcategory of IAWD - since over 99 % of them are mainly affected in their online life.
MRAWD is not limited to macrumors.com
, as it can be seen anywhere on the net - from lurking rumors about the next Sony Ericsson models, Oracle updates, anything to be slashdotted, and especially frequent they seem to be around any Mac rumor sites - however this AWD could as well go and goes with the alternative name of SDAWD - Slashdot Attention Whore Disorder
