In brief: Histrionic
Personality disorder is a condition in which people act in overly emotional and dramatic ways that draws attention to themselves.
Individuals are easily influenced by others, overly sensitive to criticism or disapproval, blame failure on others, charming, energetic, easily frustrated, manipulative, erratic, and demanding. Medication may help the symptoms, but talk therapy is the best treatment.

In brief: Histrionic
The hallmark of a histrionic is that the person has to be at the center of attention at all times.
It's like watching an actor who is always playing a role "on stage" and very uncomfortable with NOT being the center of attention.
