Dramatic personality disorder (DPD) is another term for it.

A person with this disorder is excessively dramatic, temperamental, erratic, or excitable.
What Is The Case Of Amber Heard and Jhonny Depp?
Johnny Depp has charged ex-wife Amber Heard for defamation over an op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post. She portrayed herself as a famous person symbolizing ‘domestic abuse’ in the op-ed, though she did not specify Depp’s name.
Heard is being sued for $50 million by the advocate for tarnishing his personal and professional life. Amber Heard countersued Depp.
She claimed that he slandered her after calling her abuse allegations a fabrication. Several alarming disclosures about the actors’ romance have surfaced throughout the ongoing trial, including Depp’s explicit texts and Amber Heard’s recordings.
What Did Doctor Curry Diagnose?
During Depp’s legal team’s questioning of Doctor Curry, she stated that Heard has “histrionic personality disorder” and that symptoms of the disease include “impressionistic speech,” which she defines as “quite a flowery language..but in the end, you’re left wondering what was meant.”
Dr. Curry reached the conclusion that Heard had a range of personality disorders, which she claims “was supported from various sources…one of the key tests I utilized were compatible with those diagnoses, which was consistent with her records and self-report.”
The traits discovered by Doctor Curry in Amber Heard
- a lot of wraths that is supposed to be suppressed; a propensity to be self-righteous while assessing others critically; a propensity to be self-righteous while evaluating others analytically; a propensity to pretend to be non-judgmental while actually being full of anger.
- Being highly socially advanced, with an ability to expose some of their own faults but only the smaller ones that are acceptable in society; deceptive; clingy and looking for approval; being highly socially advanced, with a potential to disclose some of their own faults but only the minor areas that are socially acceptable.
- “The 36 code type” has attributes such as “a lot of brutalities, very worried with their image, very desperate for attention, and susceptible to externalizing blame to the moment where it’s uncertain if they can confess to themselves they have such responsibilities, a lot of repressed anguish that can blow up out, and broken relationships. The 36 code type is “scared of desertion,” as per her, and will go to lengths to avoid it. Such gestures are “usually pretty dramatic and highly concerning to those around them.
- “the explosive anger they show” has a counteractive effect, and can cause the very abandonment they fear.
What Happened In Cross Interrogation?
In court, the judge observed a series of emails between Johnny Depp and Bettany. In those emails, the two talked of “drowning and burning” Heard.
Depp acknowledged that he was “embarrassed” by the email’s wording. Yet insisted that they were not intended to be taken genuinely.
Elaine Bredehoft, Heard’s lawyer, highlighted an occasion when Depp was “passed out face first on the beach” in front of his son Jack.
Ms. Roberts agreed that this occurred. Yet she argues she has no clue if Jack was “upset” as she hadn’t spoken with him about it.
During the six-week hearing, high-profile actors such as James Franco, Paul Bettany, and Elon Musk are expected to testify.
