One who desires attention at the most reprehensible, improper, gauche moments. He/she may wear clothing to appear as though he/she is different from the rest, (could be) spending money loosely, as their pockets permit. This individual may also publicly proclaim their emotions through verbal outbursts, timebomb characteristics, physical rage (i.e. striking any physical object nearby), or weeping in embarassment. These "striking" individuals love flirtation, physical stunts, maybe dancing, piercings, tight clothing (for females), big bling (for men), loud cars, Nike Dunks, the "underground" scene" and more.

Attention whores are not that bad, they may even give reparations to others but somehow will lead them to talking about themselves through indirect compliments in comparison to others.

Perhaps attention whores just need a little love that they have lacked to receive from their childhood. Psychologically, attention is needed, but exhausting it is simply pathetic and clearly a damn shame.

Now, please be aware that attention whores are underground too. They might just be the person next to you.
Look at me!!!!!!! I am an attention whore.

A Pienaar - someone who has a magical power of persuasion that convinces those around him to willingly do all the work while he basks in the glory.

A Pienaar has an over-rated charm, that can sometimes be used for bad, but mostly is used for the good of his own ego and success. Being in a Pienaar's good graces, means a steady flow of fun and laughs. Dark side is yet to be detected, but a wicked sense of humour keeps those around him on edge and enthralled. A Pienaar has an uncanny ability to spot talent and attract the most pleasant of personalities (often refered to as "Lorys").

"I am over-worked and over-burdened, but he pulled a Pienaar and convinced me I have time to do his bidding. I do hope it's massively successful for him!"

Pienaar Persuasion - an unimaginable power to get anyone within sight to completely forget their own priorities and suddenly be convinced that another person's objectives are of paramount importance. This power includes the ability to win over even the most difficult of personalities; and an uncanny talent of being able to deliver bad news and still stay popular. This character trait is highly annoying to those immune to it (known as Lorys).

"Thank Goodness I was Lory'd before meeting with him, otherwise I would have fallen for Pienaar Persuasion and agreed to "project manage" XXXX initiative."
