Hysteria, this term is often used in common parlance usually means in this context quite different things.
You are hysterical sometimes means: “You get mad for nothing”, “You really added” or “I do not understand your operation!”
However, the term hysteria has a different meaning in psychiatric medicine that hysteria itself corresponds to the symptoms found in the foreground in a pathological personality type, hysterical personalities.
How is a person suffering from hysteria?
Specific attitudes of hysteria are being representing. When you see such a person, you feel that it is too: it seems to be in a movie, play a role; it dramatizes, dramatize, exaggerate, in add. It is in excess, talking loudly, quickly, occupies the ground, laughed too, makes great gestures, uses formulas disproportionate to what it says. Some TV presenters or some actors therefore logically hysterical personality.
Hysteria up to the mythomanie when the affected person really adds some too. It can go up lie, misrepresent reality. However hysteria does not always go to this extreme.
Another very common element in hysteria is seduction: human relationships are eroticized, we try to seduce you, in life in general, but also in the sexual realm. In humans, hysteria is often linked to philandering, a tendency to collect relationships. However, this seductive attitude is often associated with a poor sex, inhibited difficult. For hysteria is a facade that hides gaps.
What are the thoughts related to hysteria?
The hysterical behavior and therefore hysterical symptoms, are exposed because they are caused by inner thoughts. In other words, a person with hysterical tendencies thoughts explaining his behavior.
It may be varied cognition:
“I must be the center of attention”; “I need you to notice me”; “I’m afraid to be alone”; “I need to charm, to please”; “I do not want you see my weaknesses, my fears”; “I need the others because I do not know just do it myself”; “I want you to find me irresistible”…
The deep emotions of hysteria
If signs of hysteria are related to thoughts, these thoughts are related, deeper emotions. These emotions are especially fears that seek to be erased by the hysterical behavior:
“I’m afraid you do not love me… So I’m doing what I think suitable for you love me.”
“I’m afraid I do not exist… So I do everything for you notice me and feel me exist.”
“I’m afraid I can not do it myself… So I need to charm around me that are helping me.”
“I’m afraid to be unhappy face myself… So I’m dizzy from others, so do not find me alone with myself.”
“I’m afraid that my weaknesses are noticed… Then I add, I boast, I invent, I overplayed to try to hide my limits.”
Overall, the hysterical symptoms, fairly simple to spot, and sometimes annoying for the environment actually correspond to deep fears and significant gaps. Perhaps by being aware, we can all show more empathy for people working in this register.
