    35 year old female arrives at the clinic, complaining of abdominal pain. She describes her symptoms in a flamboyant and dramatic manner. Her physical examination is unremarkable. throughout the examination she is flirtatous, and comments on how she wants to have a close relationship with the physician; she asks if she will be okay, then laughs when the physician reassures her. She has changed physicians four times. How would you describe her behavior?
