After having been referred to the Video Games Forums by a friend and having hung around for a day or two (just to see what the vibe was like), I have come to a certain conclusion. Most of you seem like cool people who understand the dynamics of an internet forum, save a few of course. But one in particular stands out to me and not in a good way either.
~*Sooo Bittersweet*~, one word for you.......HISTRIONIC! Please read below:
Histrionic personality disorder (HPD) is defined by the American Psychiatric Association as a personality disorder characterized by a pattern of excessive emotionality and attention-seeking, including an excessive need for approval and inappropriately seductive behavior, usually beginning in early adulthood. These individuals are lively, dramatic, vivacious, enthusiastic, and flirtatious. Histrionic personality disorder (HPD) is one of the most common found in the United States and affects 40% of inpatients, affecting more women than men by about a 4:1 ratio.
This disorder can easily be mistaken for immaturity; however a person with HPD does not simply grow out of this selfish state of being. You may perceive people with HPD to be very dependent, rude and demanding, shallow, and far from genuine.
"The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-III-R) for concept of the histrionic personality disorder reflects a tendency to be self-dramatizing, attention seeking, overly gregarious, seductive and manipulative, exhibitionistic, shallow, frivolous, liable, vain, and demanding. Histrionic Personality Disorder is considered to be in the dramatic cluster when classifying different groups of personalities. These behaviors are overwhelming and can be difficult to deal with. People with HPD have a high need for attention, make loud and inappropriate appearances, exaggerate all of their behaviors and emotions, crave stimulation and usually make a big deal about nothing
It is very important to realize that those who suffer from HPD often may seem completely confident and into themselves, but can easily be rejected from those around them which "may lead into depression and suicidal ideation.
Just in case you dont care to read the rather large description, here are the important parts:
attention-seeking, excessive need for approval, inappropriately seductive behavior, selfish state of being, dependent, rude and demanding, shallow, and far from genuine, self-dramatizing, overly gregarious, seductive and manipulative, exhibitionistic, shallow, frivolous, liable, vain, and demanding, make loud and inappropriate appearances, exaggerate all of their behaviors and emotions, crave stimulation and usually make a big deal about nothing
In short Bittersweet, you are without a doubt an embodiment of this condition. Please seek help, or dont, I dont really care. But without it you will continue to occupy space that could otherwise be given to an intelligent, witty, respected, humorous human being. All of which you are not. Plus, from what I can gather, you dont even play video games! What the (bleep) are you doing here anyway!
Have a nice day!
