If I told you all of a sudden that you had to do something special in order to make people notice you, what would come to mind? I am not asking how you would react to a stranger asking you such a thing; what I am wondering is what things you think about when the idea of deeds and actions that make you stick out in a positive way is brought up. What does someone have to do in order to catch your attention?

There is also the quality of being memorable that I wanted to mention. How would you define the word "memorable"? Can it be seen as a trait that an individual possesses or is that concept only reserved for objects, monuments and similar inanimate objects?

Also, would you say that being famous and memorable are not the same thing and do not have to go hand in hand? Perhaps one striking difference between those two concepts is the fact that while the former is attributed to an individual by society (e.g. a large, growing fanbase), the latter is a more personal matter that everyone gets to define for themselves.

Go to a fourm with many liberals, make your profile picture Trump, post things in support of Trump, and watch yourself BECOME FAMOUS. You can also follow this helpful YouTube guide on how to BECOME FAMOUS.

Nah.. I'm good with what I got. I sometimes consider changing it, but somehow, this one just sits right.

If you want fame, do something stupid and illogical, that is either deemed as 'funny' or is contained within the realms of controversy. If you want to be remembered, do something that influences many, something that affects people on a personal level.

I deem Immanuel Kant or Søren Kierkegaard to be more valuable than some narcissistic celebrity who makes more money in a day than most make in their lives.

Only really read into Hume's criticisms of the Cosmological argument, doing A-level Philosophy and ethics atm. As for Sartre, something which is concealed in plain sight (kinda)

Taking it more personally and avoiding the "do something crazy" answer (which usually leads only to dying fame anyway)

If you want me personally to notice you, be interested in the things I am. I always use the example of reading a book. If I'm reading a book, leave me alone unless you have business you need addressed or, more to the point I'm making, are genuinely interested in the book. Those people stand out to me.

As for memorable, IDK. Continually doing the above makes you memorable to me, but no specific act or thing strikes me that will make you memorable to me. That is, famous people aren't that memorable to me and I don't no what "famous" thing would make you memorable to me.
