          How to Spot a Drama Queen

          April 15, 2002


          Are you a drama queen? Or do you know one? In his book Life Strategies, Dr. Phil looks at different ways in which people engage the world. These are some signs of a drama queen:

        • None of their life events, even the ordinary ones, are ordinary. (They could create drama from watching paint dry!)
        • Every sickness they have is the worst the doctor has ever seen.
        • They have to be the center of attention and are insecure.
        • They thrive on crisis.
        • Every comment made to them is either the sweetest, warmest thing they have ever heard or the rudest, most vicious attack imaginable.
        • They engage the world in such a way as to sacrifice all credibility. Those around them soon recognize their histrionics, and discount anything and everything they say.
        • They are overanimated and act out scenes.
        • People respond to them with lots of smiles, nods and eye rolls.
        • They wear their history on their sleeve.
