    I'm an only child too and I have been told to have ADD as well...
    Its funny though how I can seem to do things great when I feel passionate about them

    Of course its not the same as ADD. But someone with ADD might be able to concentrate better than ANY once they are passionate about it ^^

    Yea if something is on the verge, it has shown that people with ADD may triumph and basically outdo themselves; by managing to be attentive and concentrate better than any other.

    So then I would definetly imagine that ENFPs with ADD are one of those who manage pull through with that

    Are people with ADD more likely to be ENFPs? Or the other way around?

    I definitely have trouble focusing on things I have no interest in. I struggled in school because of that, but I never went on any medication for it. I honestly feel like I would have done a lot better if I had but thats all in retrospect.

    I actually have ADD. I'm an adult and holy shit it gets in the way. There are times when I am sitting here, knowing that I have to start doing something, and literally being incapable of just... doing it. It sucks. I've recently started buying Adderal from friends and I'm getting a prescription as soon as possible, but the things I accomplish when I'm actually on medication for it is astounding.

    What's the closest thing to a natural/organic treatment for ADD? I wonder if there's something out there for people that have trouble focusing without actually having a condition.

    Watch the film but here are some things that help:

    1. Exercise
    2. Omega 3 supplements
    3. Good diet and sleep

    Just conjecture:
    4. Avoiding caffeine if you're ADD-inattentive, may help for ADHD

    5. Good routine/habits help everyone. Structure is especially important for ADDers. Suggestions in The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp are all user friendly.
    6. Meditation
    7. Better organization of environment.
