A way of relating to the world in which a person consistently overreacts to or greatly exaggerates the importance of benign events.

Typically "drama" is used by people who are chronically bored or those who seek attention.

People who engage in "drama" will usually attempt to drag other people into their dramatic state, as a way of gaining attention or making their own lives more exciting.

Common warning signs/ risk factors of drama or a dramatic person are:

1. Having one supposedly serious problem after another.

2. Constantly telling other people about one's problems.

3. Extreme emotionality or frequently shifting, intense emotions.

4. Claiming to have experienced negative events that are highly implausible.

5. A boring job or mundane life.

6. Making claims without sufficient evidence or a lack of detail about supposedly serious events.

7. A pattern of irrational behavior and reactions to everyday problems.
Sarah had a slight fever and mild cough. She decided to use drama, in order to receive sympathy and attention, so she told everyone she was deathly ill.

Debra lost her keys then spent four hours crying and yelling at her husband.

Mary did not answer her cell phone for an hour, so John feared that she had died in a horrible car accident.

Drama is when a person creates problems for themselves because they are Prima Donna's and then obsess over those problems to other people, especially people with far more complicated problems.

1. What people who don't like what you're saying or what you are passionate about think you're creating when you talk about it, especially if you do so often.

2. What people who know they are busted by whatever you are talking about call the topic when you bring it up, even if they aren't named.
Mary is passionate about stopping domestic violence and discusses it often. John is abusive to her, and considers her talk to be nothing but drama because he doesn't share her beliefs, and would really like to get her to shut the fuck up so as to get the focus off of what might expose him to others for what he really is.
