Hi Welcome!

The correct form is: "You don't seem to know anythihng else other than work/ working".

Seems - is used for 3rd person/ singular context. i.e. He seems unhappy.
How about inserting the adverb always in the given examples?

1.He seems a tired person.

2.He always seems a tired person.

3.He always seem a tired person.

The first sentence is fine. I am not sure whether the second sentence is correct.

Please tell me.
1 and 2 are correct. It's he + seems - 3rd person simple present tense agreement.

2.He always seems a tired person.

3.He always seem a tired person.

The first sentence is fine. I am not sure whether the second sentence is correct.

Please tell me.
All 3 were awkwardly constructed.

You can say “he seemed tired when I saw him this morning”, or “he always seems tired.

Or, "he seemed like a tired old man...", "seemed like a nice guy..."

“seemed…” typically followed by an adjective in this type of context.
Thanks for your quick response.

Can "seems" used with There ??

There seems to be... or

There seem to be
Yes. seem(s) can be used with There.
