The more she writes, the more clear it becomes that Tila wants people to believe she is crazy. She needs that attention. She wants to feel like a special snowflake when she's not.
Let's take a look at a recent Facebook post along with some of the follow-up comments she made.
Tila had previously asked some very basic questions on Facebook, admitted it was for her survey, and then posted the "findings" of her psychological research.
It's almost cute how deep she thinks she sounds. It would be funny if Tila was a 5th grader who is learning about the four temperaments and decided to label her group of friends. (Tila is totally a mixture of sanguine and choleric, by the way.) It's not funny, though, because Tila is a 30 year old woman.
She went on to tell everyone what their personality types were and how detailed her research on the subject is. What is sad is that her fans are eating this up. If only they knew they could read the notebook of any Psych 101 student or Psychology SparkNotes and find the same information, but with actual source citations and without the superiority complex.
She then apologized for publishing her findings. Again, fans ate it up.
I said above that Tila wants nothing more than to feel like a special snowflake. She wants to be unique, artistic, and sound more intellectual than everyone around her. She wants people to find her enlightening, so she steals the work of other people and tries to pass it off as her own. The reason Tila's fanbase is made up mostly of children, many who talk about their own lack of self-confidence, is because most adults aren't naive enough to fall for her stunts. Tila uses them because of their age and because they might not feel very confident yet. She uses them by making them feel special because someone who was once on TV speaks to them online. Many don't even realize that she is speaking down to them when she does speak to them. They do whatever they can to increase the chance that she will speak to them. They compliment her art, defend her when she steals music, ohh and ahh over her "knowledge" about the paranormal and conspiracy theories even after they learn everything she writes is taken from someone else. It makes 30 year old Tila Tequila feel better about herself when she feels smarter than the people with whom she speaks.
There are times when Tila's fans come to their senses and question her or are open about their concern for her health. In the past, we watched as she bullied her own fans for worrying about her when she faked a suicide attempt. We watched as Tila bullied a young girl about her weight.
Tila is only satisfied when people are looking up to her. Tila gets angry when anyone offers her any insight, concern, or sympathy. Could this be why Tila refuses to credit to people whose work she steals?
Since Tila is too busy diagnosing and labeling others, I will take it upon myself to diagnose Tila. She uses her Facebook vision powers to be able to read people through their comments. I will use everything said by Tila in the past and her thoughts I was able to read when I traveled the astral plane disguised as an ancient Egyptian prince from the Cherokee Tribe of southern Norway.
Histrionic personality disorder (HPD) is defined by the American Psychiatric Association as a personality disorder characterized by a pattern of excessive emotionality and attention-seeking, including an excessive need for approval and inappropriately seductive behavior, usually beginning in early adulthood. These individuals are lively, dramatic, vivacious, enthusiastic, and flirtatious.
People with HPD have a high need for attention, make loud and inappropriate appearances, exaggerate their behaviors and emotions, and crave stimulation. They may exhibit sexually provocative behavior, express strong emotions with an impressionistic style, and can be easily influenced by others. Associated features include egocentrism, self-indulgence, continuous longing for appreciation, and persistent manipulative behavior to achieve their own needs.
People with HPD are usually able to function at high levels and can be successful socially and professionally. They usually have good social skills, though they tend to use these skills to manipulate other people and become the center of attention. Furthermore, histrionic personality disorder may affect a person's social or romantic relationships and their ability to cope with losses or failures. They may seek treatment for depression when romantic relationships end. Individuals with HPD often fail to see their own personal situation realistically and instead dramatize and exaggerate their difficulties. Because they tend to crave novelty and excitement, they may place themselves in risky situations. All of these factors may lead to greater risk of developing depression.
Additional characteristics may include:
Some histrionics change their seduction technique into a more maternal or paternal style as they age.
- Exhibitionist behavior
- Constant seeking of reassurance or approval
- Excessive sensitivity to criticism or disapproval
- Pride of own personality and unwillingness to change, viewing any change as a threat
- Inappropriately seductive appearance or behavior
- Using somatic symptoms (of physical illness) as a means of garnering attention
- A need to be the center of attention
- Low tolerance for frustration or delayed gratification
- Rapidly shifting emotional states that may appear superficial or exaggerated to others
- Tendency to believe that relationships are more intimate than they actually are
- Making rash decisions
A mnemonic that can be used to remember the characteristics of histrionic personality disorder is PRAISE ME.

Tila, I had to share that because my soul couldn't handle all of it by myself ... so I wanted to open up the doors to let everyone on the outside in. My energies have been drained. I will end it there. Continue searching, dream weaving starlight child. I know you can hear my thoughts, Tila. Since no one else holds this crystal dreamworld spirit power, I can only tell them to belittle the hat to find the answers.
