The American Psychiatric Association defines histrionic personality disorder (HPD) as a personality disorder that is identified by a series of excessive attention-seeking actions and behaviors, which typically begin in early childhood and include improper seduction and an obsessive need for approval. People with the disease are described as being animated, dramatic, energetic, enthusiastic, outgoing, and flirty.
HPD is part of a large group of personality disorders. People with HPD have a strong craving for attention, dress loudly and inappropriately, exaggerate their feelings and reactions, and seek excitement. They may engage in sexually suggestive conduct, express powerful emotions in an impressionistic manner, and are readily swayed. Self-assuredness, self-indulgence, a constant desire for approval, and relentless controlling behavior to achieve their own goals are all associated characteristics.
