Many creative people (and IxxP) in particular are daydreamers. I am concerned however with the ADHD diagnosis. The H means hyperactivity and generally refers to loud boisterous kids who can't stay still rather than the daydreamers??? ADD I could understand but ADHD seems a bit of a stretch in your case.
Your comments make me more inclined as an educator to look at different ways of teaching to engage that interest and potential with hyperfocus. Every person has a talent that they can manifest - I believe that we need to do better than we do in schools to identify those talents and the learning styles that work with kids with special talents who are currently diagnosed with ADHD/ADD.Yes, I often go into hyperfocus. Mostly when I listen to music, I try to notice all details, finding out how it's structured, thinking about what they had done to make that kind of noise.. it also happens when I read about stuff that provokes my curiousity. And yes, I lose track of time and get really frustrated if someone else interrupts.
I believe that if we do this then every child could fulfil their potential and be happier with who they are and enjoy their differences instead of feeling like outcasts.
Type wise, research shows that the three types most attracted to teaching (esfj, isfj & infj) all have J preferences, and therefore you could safely deduce that most classes would be predominantly run by those who value order above adaptability to situations. This is not the preferred learning style of SPs or NPs who appear to prefer to have a realtime application to their areas of interest or passion to absorb whatever they are learning.
Schools like Montessori, Steiner, Home Schooling Networks and Sudbury Valley (sudval.org) are having amazing successes with this type of teaching and learning.
Just make certain that you follow any safety instructions if you do choose to do the meds thingOh and about meds, I was thinking about taking those wich are effective over a 12 hour period, so that I can focus at work and then go chaotic in the nights
