Today I'm going to be talking about about histrionic personality disorder symptoms or HPD for the lazy people out there. I'll share with you what this condition is and thoughts on dealing with it. To understand what this condition really is, let's focus on the word histrionic and break it down. This word means dramatic or theatrical.

Now that you know what that word means what do you think this personality disorder involves? Yea, someone is unusually dramatic and very emotional. They also will feel very uncomfortable if they are not the center of attention.

One of the best ways to tell if someone has this personality disorder would be to ask yourself the following questions. Does the person's self-esteem depend on the approval of others? Does the person regularly want to have the center of attention?

Another classic sign of this problem is when a person is unusually concerned with physical appearance. This includes possibly dressing inappropriately and very seductively to gain attention, such as wearing a mini skirt to church.

They are often easily bored with routine usually starting projects and moving on to something else before completing them. Also they could be frequent in making rash decisions and not thinking things through before acting.

An example of this would be trading in a dog van for a tiny scooter, which was in the movie “Dumb and Dumber.” I tried to think of something funny to insert in that last sentence, and that is the only thing I could think of it. Yes, they are making a remake of the movie and I'm looking forward to see how it's going to turn out.

Someone with this condition is usually self-centered and does not show concern for others. As you can imagine they have a difficult time keeping relationships with other people.

Now that you know a few of the major symptoms, can you guess which gender usually suffers from this personality disorder? According to Wikipedia women are four times as likely to suffer from HPD than guys.

When I look at America, which is a huge country the west coast culture is a very image driven culture, more so than the rest of the country. Just a guess, but I think that more people with HPD are located here.

You might be wondering how someone gets this condition. Like almost all things genetics could be a culprit, but a big cause might be how someone is raised and cultural conditioning.

In conclusion someone with HPD deep down is suffering from depression, they have a hard time excepting themselves. Psychotherapy or NLP can of course be a wonderful tool to help someone with this problem, and there are tons of supplements and herbal remedies that can also help.

One supplement I would recommend regardless if someone sucks from HPD or not would be omega 3 fish oil. The reason is because it does so many good things for the brain, and so many people are deficient in this stuff.
