People diagnosed with this disorder are said to be lively, dramatic, vivacious, enthusiastic, and flirtatious. It is categorized into "Cluster B" personality disorder. HPD symptoms do not fully develop until the age of 15.
⚁A mnemonic that can be used to remember the characteristics of HPD is "PRAISE ME".
●P: Provocative (or seductive) behavior.
●R: Relationships are considered more intimate than they actually are.
●A: Attention-seeking.
●I: Influenced easily by others or circumstances.
●S: Speech (style) wants to impress; lacks detail.
●E: Emotional lability; shallowness.
●M: Make-up; physical appearance is used to draw attention to self.
●E: Exaggerated emotions; theatrical.
âš‚HPD is diagnosed four times as frequently in women as men (may be because men report their symptoms less often than women).
⚃People with HPD are usually high-functioning, both socially and professionally. They usually have good social skills, despite tending to use them to manipulate others into making them the center of attention.
âš„CAUSES:- Direct causes are inconclusive, there are a few theories and studies conducted that suggests there are multiple possible causes. There are neurochemical, genetic, psychoanalytical, and environmental causes contributing to HPD.

[â– Children of parents with HPD may simply exhibit behavior they learned from their parents. â– It is also possible that a lack of discipline or positive reinforcement of dramatic behaviors in childhood can cause HPD. â– A child may learn HPD behaviors as a way to get attention from their parents]
