    Default ADHD or Ne?

    Please watch this and tell me..is this how an ADHD looks like, or is this how Ne dominant user looks like? Because I do everything that is in this video that would mean that I am a) a terrible case uf undiagnosed ADHD, or b) just an Ne user.

    I think those are all pretty much human qualities, and that the video is lightheartedly joking and shouldn't be used to self-diagnose.

    In fact I don't like this video at all, ADHD/ADD is severely overdiagnosed and has been for a long time now (about 11% of children in the USA has got the diagnose) and this video perpetuates the belief that being a little scatterbrained and procrastinating things you find boring means you got a neuropsychological disorder. Keep in mind that 6.4 million kids on medication generates a lot of money for medical companies.

    Yeah, people with ADHD/ADD do those things, but just because you do those things it doesn't mean you have ADHD/ADD.

    Ok well I guess I don't have ADHD then, just impulsivity and hyperfocus and I don't need adderall for the latter :p

    ADHD is the world's excuse for becoming increasingly boring.

    I can't stay seated or study. It's actually my INTP mom who always forgets schedule and misplaces stuff...and then blames it on us.

    The thought of writing down a systematic schedule in a book repulses me. I just keep one significant date in my head, and when that date comes, do (thing), then proceed to next task.

    Can't read a thing anymore either, it hurts.

    So yeah, I'm no ADDer but I'm certainly so scattered it hurts.

    Oh my gosh. It's my life. I was diagnosed with ADHD at roughly age 6-7. Took meds, mostly Concerta (Ritalin) until I was 17. Then I just kind of stopped. But, as someone with ADHD who also uses Ne, I can definitely relate.

    I don't usually lose things though... But the studying thing is literally my life. I CANNOT study at home. I have to go somewhere else. It can't be too quiet, because then I get distracted by the quiet. And it can't be too busy, because then all the activity will distract me. Thankfully I have found a coffee shop that suits my needs quite well.

    ADHD and Ne are not mutually exclusive. The correlation between them is actually quite strong. The main difference is that Jung saw it as a legitimate aspect of personality while doctors saw it as abnormal.
