Histrionic Personality Disorder

What Is Histrionic Personality Disorder?

Histrionic personality disorder is a pattern of excessive emotionality and attention-seeking behavior.

How Can Histrionic Personality Disorder Impact Your Life?

This condition can create difficulty in making connections and a feeling of alienation when the person is not at the center or attention. This can create an environment in which the person will take extreme measures to meet their needs. This can not only create difficulties in forming a strong sense of self but also further isolate the person from creating meaningful relationships.

What Are The Symptoms Of Histrionic Personality Disorder?

Symptoms of histrionic personality disorder may include constant attention-seeking, excessive or dramatic displays, emotions which appear shallow and/or rapidly changing, a high level of concern with physical features and appearance, and a misperception of closeness in relationships. There is often a sexual or provocative element, which may look like excessive flirtation or acting in a sexually inappropriate manner.
