Technically craving attention and being entertained by others are opposites (though I suppose both existing on the pole of shallowness).

Mighty Box here son, chicken burger, fries, 1 piece, beans and a coke. Put a couple of wings in there too boy, and don't give me any fucking bones. No skimping on the fries either.

I'm about to leave crisis though because I work everyday.

How someone "acts" is basically the same as how they "present"

Present is just a more clinicial term.

Now there can be different types of incongruencies...such as presenting ("acting") differently than a person's diagnosis suggests.
