bezoman Posted February 8, 2011 Report Share Posted February 8, 2011 While this has been true of me before I discovered the internet, I have noticed that the internet has definitely hypercharged this tendency in me. Basically, it's like this. I currently have sixteen windows open on sixteen different internet forums. In each one of these windows is a topic I have recently posted in. I have spent the last four hours cycling between the windows waiting for responses with an increased feeling of agitation at the lack of them. In many ways, I don't care if the responses I get are good or bad as long as there is something. This is a huge part of my tendency to make inflammatory remarks to get a reaction, any reaction.Four hours. I could have done so much with that time.Looking back over the last few months, there has been a huge increase in my feedback craving behaviour. I have posted terrible things on facebook about how I wish the world would explode and everyone on it would die. I have trolled internet forums where I have previously been a member of fairly good standing just to get a response. More and more of my life has been consumed by this tendency.It alarms me that I react so negatively to a lack of feedback, far more negatively than someone outright telling me I'm a useless human being who should kill myself.Help.
