yes, the public school system IS whacked and the main reason my kids are in a charter school. great ratio to kids and better communication on the needs of the child... not the stats.

My daugther (13) is diagnosed with a mild ADD and I suspect I have the tendency as well - it's 80 % hereditary. We are obviously very different in many ways (I think she's ESTP), but the Ne / Se dom observation makes perfect sense of our similarities. When we are both in the talkative mood it has now become so obvious, that we'll end up laughing and shouting "Don't you dare to interrupt me when I'm interrupting!!!"

My mind is always full of energy. It's just always too full, like five hundred people tripping om XTC in a tiny little cage without enough space for everyone. According to many test I probably have ADD, but I've never been officially diagnosed (long story, I was sent do a center where they would test me but at first I had to talk to this psychiatrist and he wanted my dad to be there when I was having this first conversation with him. It turned out to be a drama, whenever I started telling something my father interupted me and made up his own version of my story which wasn't true at all. The psychiatrist listened to my father and not to me, so in the end he didn't even think about having me tested. He thought I was just a lazy adolescent with lack of ambition). I do think I have ADD, I certainly can't normally do routine work and it drives me crazy. There is way too much energy in my mind and nothing can ever get that energy out of me, not even playing sports as many people recommended to me (I'll tell you, sports make my mind even fuller). It's just this permanent restlessness that never goes away. I actually don't really mind this, but it's not really helpfull when you're ought to live a life that has no space left for spontanious things and releasing that mental energy. My life so much routine that I just can't handle it and it doesn't look like there is coming an end to it an time soon.
I don't have ADHD.
I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

i don't think i do either but but i just can't slow my mind down enough to do things at a slow methodical pace. it really doesn't matter how many different systems or structured ways of doing things people try to teach me. i always have to do it super fast chaotic style. it doesn't bother me a bit and i just think people need to realize that everyone has their own way of doing things.
There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.
[QUOTE=teslashock;943616]I'd say that any attention disorder is a result of a really strong Se or Ne. [QUOTE]
I find that really interesting, because I found it somewhat annoying that Keirsey associated only the SP temperament with AD(H)D..... and I know two adults who have ADD for sure, and they're both Ne dominant I am sure.
Sorry that this is off-topic, but do you think that there a differences in how AD(H)D shows in people with strong Ne versus people with strong Se?
