is a mental disorder. It used to be called a hysterical neurosis
. Today, hysterical or histrionic personality is differentiated from the symptoms that were generally presented in this neurosis. Hysterical personality mainly concerns women who, in a rather theatrical way, try to seduce another, often egocentric and with some fluctuation of these emotions
, and an intolerance of rejection. Moreover, the hysterical person often describes symptoms without a disorder that explains the symptom
identified. This can be a variety of pain
, sensory disturbances ... these are now called somatoform disorders.
