Classic Collision Histrionic Personality Disorder #30

Posted on 13. Apr, 2017 by in Classic Collision Atlanta


I was told that Sandusky was diagnosed with this personality disorder and it has been suggested to me that Manfred Kammerer exhibits the same behavior.

Unfortunately, a lot of my past behavior is very similar to that of what is being described below. When God put his hands on me in 2004, that was the beginning of my path….a path that would lead me on a journey of self exploration. A vision of all of the pain and destruction I’d caused myself and everyone around me. I had begun to realize, at the age of 25, that my life was totally out of control. It seemed like if I stopped, it might kill me. There was so much damage to fix..where was I to begin and when would it ever end? On the other hand, staying the way I was would have definitely killed me..that’s what the Devil wanted. That’s what people like Manfred Kammerer want. Evil is here to rob, destroy and lead people to believe that they have no reason to believe that their life is worth anything…that way, you will continue to serve it…until it kills you…Then, the Devil/Manfred Kammerer, just move onto their next victim(s).

I’d like to say that I feel sorry for Manfred Kammerer but, that’s what has gotten me where I am today…he used my kindness as a weakness. I once had someone tell me that they’d never thought they’d hear anyone say that they feel sorry for a man well worth over $100ml(back in 2007). I don’t see any value an anyone who steps all over others to get what they want. I guess as long as he feels important, that’s all that matters. Manfred, how do you get that head of yours out of the door each morning?
I have posted the definition of Histrionic Personality Disorder below. Its really sad..all of the destruction and chaos that this man has caused…so many because he needs to make himself feel good about himself. Once again, why not just be a decent Human Being? Oops..that’s a lot to ask for in one sentence…decent and Human Being!
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. HPD is most commonly found in the United States and affects four times as many women as men.[1] It has a prevalence of 2–3% in the general population, and 10–15% in inpatient and outpatient mental health institutions.[2]HPD lies in the dramatic cluster of personality disorders.[3] People with HPD have a high need for attention, make loud and inappropriate appearances, exaggerate their behaviors and emotions, and crave stimulation.[3] They may exhibit sexually provocative behavior, express strong emotions with an impressionistic style, and can be easily influenced by others. Associated features include egocentrism, self-indulgence, continuous longing for appreciation, and persistent manipulative behavior to achieve their own needs.


People with HPD are usually able to function at high levels and can be successful socially and professionally. They usually have good social skills, though they Furthermore, histrionic personality disorder may  tend to use these skills to manipulate other people and become the center of attention.[4]affect a person’s social or romantic relationships and their ability to cope with losses or failures. They may seek treatment for depression when romantic relationships end.

Individuals with HPD often fail to see their own personal situation realistically and instead dramatize and exaggerate their difficulties. They may go through frequent job changes, as they become easily bored and have trouble dealing with frustration. Because they tend to crave novelty and excitement, they may place themselves in risky situations. All of these factors may lead to greater risk of developing depression. [5] Additional characteristics may include:


  • Exhibitionist behavior
  • Constant seeking of reassurance or approval
  • Excessive sensitivity to criticism or disapproval
  • Pride of own personality and unwillingness to change, viewing any change as a threat
  • Inappropriately seductive appearance or behavior
  • Using somatic symptoms as a means of garnering attention
  • A need to be the center of attention
  • Low tolerance for frustration or delayed gratification
  • Rapidly shifting emotional states that may appear superficial or exaggerated to others
  • Tendency to believe that relationships are more intimate than they actually are
  • Making rash decisions[4]
  • A limited or minimal capability of experiencing love[6]


A mnemonic that can be used to remember the characteristics of histrionic personality disorder is “PRAISE ME”:[7][8]

  • Provocative (or seductive) behavior
  • Relationships are considered more intimate than they are
  • Attention-seeking
  • Influenced easily
  • Speech (style) wants to impress; lacks detail
  • Emotional lability; shallowness
  • Make-up; physical appearance is used to draw attention to self
  • Exaggerated emotions; theatrical


The cause of histrionic personality disorder is unknown, but childhood events such as deaths or illnesses in the immediate family (which present constant anxiety), divorce of parents, and genetics may be involved. HPD is more often diagnosed in women than men; men with some similar symptoms are often diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder.

Little research has been conducted to determine the biological sources, if any, of this disorder. Psychoanalytic theories incriminate authoritarian or distant attitudes by one (mainly the mother) or both of parents, along with conditional love based on expectations the child can never fully meet.


The person’s appearance, behavior, and history, along with a psychological evaluation, are usually sufficient to establish a diagnosis. There is no test to conMillon’s subtypes

Theodore Millon identified six subtypes of histrionic personality disorder.[11] Any individual histrionic may exhibit none or one of the following:

firm this diagnosis. Because the criteria are subjective, some people may be wrongly diagnosed.

    They are not videos they are screen caps from a conversation where you did in fact specify that you where never raped. Turn your html on and you will see it.

    Your specific words where “the man never did force me against my will. The heartless asshole refused to help me with my medical bills, or loan me money. I needed those things.”

    Lets brush up on the definition of rape.
    Rape: forcing another person to have sexual intercourse

    So seeing as you where never actually forced to do anything(your words not mine) you where never actually raped. Which makes you no not a rape victim but a disgruntled gold digger who never got paid for her services.
