Some of them loved to be in the center of attention at all times. For the diminishing number of people, they keep their private lives intact. There are instances though that we need to attract people’s attention.
Applying for a job, impressing a person, boosting your ego – these are the kind of situations we need to step into the spotlight. Being too shy isn’t filling up anyone’s social credential, and a feed of attention once in a while won’t hurt.
At those times I feel the need to have people’s focus on me, I wear red shirt. Red color is dominating. It can easily be spotted against any other color and it is memorable.
I’ve seen some techniques in screens. People utilize a prop, most times a cute dog or a baby. It’s some kind of a chick magnet. According to the survey of Askmen.com, “being a great father or husband” is the main plus factor that defies a real man. Taking care of a baby would shift heads of women.
Makeup is a prop to get attention too. In a study of University of Austin scientists, a woman’s face is mostly important to 75% of men. I agree with that, the eyes, the smile, the skin are all attention grabber.
Extreme looks can shift heads as well. We’ve been hyped with recurring news of Lady Gaga’s outfit, sometimes meaty, sometimes see-through; or Katy Perry’s new unnatural hair color. People who act the craziest get the most attention with raised brows.
