In brief: Emotional, dramatic

Histrionic personality disorder is a condition in which people act in overly emotional and dramatic ways that draws attention to themselves.
Individuals with histrionic personality disorder are easily influenced by others, overly sensitive to criticism/disapproval, charming, energetic, easily frustrated, manipulative, seductive, erratic, and demanding. 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.
