    If you want to walk the way of greatness, get to work and actually build something up, rather than simply throwing whimsical rubbish into the junk synthesizer.
    You're talking about creating and exploring and forming lines of reasoning, not accomplishing rote tasks. The latter is where INFPs will become bored & rush through it or create some fantasy backdrop to make it less dull. School & many jobs can ask more in the way of mindless, rote tasks than critical thinking.

    Most people here don't think that INFP's are capable of critical thinking!

    I got diagnosed with ADD when I was 14 and could have gotten things like extra time on tests.. But I never needed anything like that, I always tested very well and was almost always one of the first people in class to finish. My problem was usually any assignment I had to do at home which always felt like torture and was very difficult to focus on because I had so many other more interesting things I could be doing.

    I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 7. I took ritalin until I was 16, and made very good grades in school while I was on it. The down side was that every behavior problem from 7 on was blamed on the ADHD and my mother wanted to medicate it so I wouldn't be so "difficult." Which was apparently my constant state. I was "rediagnosed" with ADD when I was 21. I think I would have done very poorly in school without the meds (I did pretty poorly after I stopped taking them)

    My step father and little sister are both INFPs and they've both been diagnosed with ADD.

    My mother and I are also probable INFPs, and we haven't been.

    I don't believe ADD is necessarily personality-related, though Ne may appear as an attention deficit problem to some.
