Nein. Generally I do not feel a need for attention. If I feel drawn to the question and feel I have something to say, I answer.
Also I sometimes answer partially motivated by wanting to support a person who is reaching out to ask.
Or by thinking I *should* participate more in other questions and not always be centered on my own.
Or I remember that answering questions also boosts my own 'internet presence.' I have often gone to another person's profile from a question or someone's answer, and others to mine from my question or answer.
I might not have answered this question except that it showed up on my profile page and sparked my interest.
But there I go on another tangent not directly related to the Q. Anyway, thanks for asking.
