It can be easy to overlook the tactics of The Attention Seeker as ones that are, frankly, kind of sad and pathetic. While there is an element of truth to this conclusion, it's important to read between the lines and understand how this behavior can negatively impact your career.

The Attention Seeker is easy to spot because they make it a point to be noticed as they consistently make efforts to get the spotlight pointed in their direction. You'll also see their continual efforts to get on the boss' good side with constant compliments and unnecessary flattery. They often portray themselves as being very helpful to other employees, especially those who are new on board. This all seems pretty positive. The trouble lies in the fact that, when you don't offer The Attention Seeker the attention they crave, you'll often notice a quick and sometimes dangerous turn. It may be as subtle as one-upping your account of a recent accomplishment or as serious as using confidential information against you.

Keep going for more workplace bullies to be wary of.
