Gatsby is also depicted as someone who strives to be known as he has extravagant parties, but seems to barely know the people who are there. They are just there as a status symbol for him. They come because he provides their food and drink.
Gatsby is also accused of having a fake English accent which he puts on because he believes it makes him seem more upper class material.
When Gatsby gives a tour of his house to Daisy, his new love interest, the reader can notice that all of the house is extravagantly laid out except for his bedroom. Showing that he does not care for the luxuries of life himself, he just likes to be known as someone who has them.
