    I think that AD(H)D would be about even among Judgers and Perceivers, and that it would be more frustrating for Judgers due to the disconnect between disposition and ability.

    I can be pretty J even SJ when I take ADD meds (pschostimulents)
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    Everybody in the US has ADD. There's an easy explanation: the workload is too high when compared to what humans can stand, thus everyone needs to use amphetamines.

    i have a friend whom said while taking the mbti test, that he had difficulty answering the questions because it really depends on whether he's medicated or not. He couldn't decide if he were actually an ISTP or an ENTJ. ISTP, being his medicated personality, and ENTJ being his non medicated. he also said he often felt more cold towards others when medicated.

    Yeah, medicine can have a dramatic effect. Especially SRRIs. I was on them for awhile, and I think I was more "dry" emotionally, as well as in my sense of humor, etc.. I also concentrated better and probably was more productive. Naturally (like now or when I was a kid), I'm not dry. A lot more forgetful and tempermental though.

    Well maybe not everyone but ADD seems to be way overdiagnosed.

    Quite the opposite, actually. Despite the media sensation about overdiagnosing ADHD, studies have suggested that as many as 2/3 of people who have ADHD will never be diagnosed or treated. I think it may be true that a small subset of the population is likely to be misdiagnosed as having ADHD, but the vast majority will just continue to suffer undiagnosed.

    That just means it's not an illness, it's people being themselves.

    Sure....just like depression, schizophrenia, hemophilia, Tay-sachs, and any other inherent genetic disorder.

    And how did you arrive to that conclusion? I'm not seeing the link at all.
