Histrionic personality disorder involves emotional overreaction and seeking the attention and appreciation of other people. People with histrionic personality disorder can function well in their careers and relationships but may struggle with depression and become emotionally unstable. To cope with their symptoms, people may abuse substances, but this behavior can complicate treatment.

Assessing Your Risk of Histrionic Personality Disorder

To determine whether your symptoms are related to histrionic personality disorder, you can take a self-assessment. A quiz is not an official diagnosis, but an assessment may help you evaluate your feelings and experiences effectively so you can seek treatment if necessary.
