Help with a term from psychology.

Help with a term from psychology.
I used to know this one, back when I was getting my bachelor's. It is the term for a person who will take ANY attention, good or bad, just so long as they are being acknowledged as being alive. Very pathetic, but it does describe trolls effectively.

 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

They're impressed with themselves, aren't they? This type has a negative image of themselves.

One could argue that a narcissist ultimately has a negative self-image (hence the insistence upon validation), but you have a point: that they only want positive attention (and in fact, they insist on it). I'm stumped.

I wonder . . .

does Jesus revel in being ass blown ??

Might be preferable to Him as opposed to being totally ignored. Winning over humanity one sphincter at a time . . . .
