The Cluster B personality disorder is characterized by unpredictable and dramatic emotional symptoms. Hetrionic personality disorders can cause excessive emotion such as uncontrollable laughter or ferocious hugging. Their charismatic and dramatic demeanour makes them the centre of attention. But they are easily offended by others who don’t attend to their needs. Their relationships can be unstable and unfavorable because of this tendency.
Psychoanalysis defines narcissists to be clients with a high sense of self-importance or exaggerated self-worth. They lack empathy and are concerned with attention-seeking and self-admiration (Kearney & Trull, 2016). They underestimate the strengths of others and overestimate themselves. When they don’t receive the needed validation, they react quickly.
Antisocial personality disorder is characterized by a constant propensity to disrespect and violate social norms and the rights of others, and to substitute such ideal characteristics with dishonesty, aggressive, and antisocial actions (Kearney & Trull, 2016).

The most difficult therapeutic group for Cluster B personality disorders is still to come. These people are highly manipulative and emotional unstable. These people are much more likely to try to establish professional relationships with doctors, which can lead to them being exposed to unfavorable circumstances. A thorough history and physical exam, as well as a behavioral evaluation, will help determine the severity and extent of the condition. Antipsychotic and anticonvulsant medications are effective in reducing BPD symptoms (Kearney & Trull, 2016). Some anticonvulsants, such as lithium, may help to suppress violent or impulsive symptoms of antisocial personality disorders.
