    Almost every NF I know was accused of having ADD, but it was always false accusations.

    I sometimes seriously wonder whether I am. It would explain a lot. Check out these links:

    The case study of Sara is almost word-for-word a description of me.

    Based on the opinion of psychiatrists these days, I'm going to guess all of them.

    Not me.

    And why aren't many of these 'symptoms' simply considered components of someones personality? i.e. not everyone is going to have excellent concentration skills, some people are going to have more hyperactive minds/thoughts....why must everyone be the same? It's something that bothers me about western psychology. What historically would have been labeled as eccentricities, or simple personality traits, are now labeled as conditions that require medication.

    I understand if a person chooses to go on medication because they desire to function differently in real life and without the medication they are unable to excel/succeed effectively, but calling it a disorder with an implication that treatment is necessary to 'fix' the person doesn't seem like a great solution.

    Many of these disorders are just a more extreme version of one particular trait or aspect of personality -- and every individual is going to fall at one point on all of the scales for all of the traits. So with this scale, let's say on one end you have Productive and Never Loses Train of Thought. On the other end you'd have Unproductive and Always Loses Train of Thought. Most people would fall somewhere between those two points. Would it be a bell curve? Or would it be evenly distributed? I'm not sure. There won't be MANY people at either of the actual extremes though. Probably what western medicine is doing is over medicating and giving a large % of those over the median line medicine, saying they're ADD, or whatever. And then the other problem is that a lot of people actually believe something's wrong with them if they're this way, when I don't really see that as the case. Who says you have to be able to fully concentrate all the time? Who defined what is 'Normal' and what is 'Not Normal'?

    I would imagine these days most people would get diagnosed with one sort of disorder or another. I'm quite certain at various times in my life I would have gotten some disorder or psychological condition thrown onto my persona - as would pretty much everyone. Whether it be anxiety, depression, or the whole slew of other psychological problems, it's rather what it means to be human.

    I doubt there's much correlation with ADD and being an NF. I think most of the disorders fall outside of mbti.

    Yeah I don't really believe in ADD as a specific phenomena. But if you define it as some threshold number of symptoms from a list, then I have it.

    "Another possibility is that there are certain temperament traits that predispose individuals to exhibit behaviors that are characteristic of both ADHD and creativity." - Dr. Bonnie Cramond,



    The above is exactly why I was asking.

    I was diagnosed with ADD a few years back and told that I had to take medication. The reaction that I had was completely negative. I occured to me that since NF types are so rare could it be that there is a mis diagnosis in people and that ADD's simply are not supposed to be like everyone else? That perhaps there is nothing wrong with them?
