Verbal Attack Pattern 6
"You're only preTENDing (X)
to get aTTENtion, you know!"


  • "(X) is a false condition in your case."
  • "You would stoop to anything to get attention."
  • This whole setup is only bait to get you into an argument.
  • Say, "It's kind of you to be so understanding."--without sounding sarcastic.
  • Or, "One so rarely meets people capable of clear perceptions."
It may hurt your pride a little, but anything else will just put you into their verbal trap on their terms. If you do argue, you will prove that you like having their attention. This way, they will either give up or try a different type of an attack.
