Drama Being dramatic not just for women

Women are always accused of being dramatic, while men usually are given cool and collected attributes, steering clear of drama.

Women are always accused of being dramatic, while men usually are given cool and collected attributes, steering clear of drama.

Well, these stereotypes have been overturned by a US study which finds gender plays no role in whether or not a person has a need for drama in their life.

In a paper published in Personality and Individual Differences, researchers from the University of Texas have determined that men and women are equally likely to have a "need for drama".

The study involved 500 volunteers, sourced from the student body and Amazon's Mechanical Turk forum.

Participants were were asked to rate how closely they identified with statements including "people often talk about me behind my back" and "I feel like there are people in my life who are out to get me", the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

One of the study's lead authors, Scott Frankowski, said he decided to investigate dramatic tendencies after he realised a certain co-worker's life seemed to continually be in crisis.

Frankowski told Science of Us the drama was minor, but overblown.

. "It was minor stuff, but it was just taken to a whole other level. 'Oh my gosh, my kid is sick.' Or 'I'm leaving work early.' I was just like, 'Really?' How is this always happening?'"

While gender was ruled out of how highly someone scored on the study's "need for drama" scale, traits like impulsiveness and being opinionated rated highly, as did the tendency to see themselves as the victim in any situation.
