Do you have Adult ADHD? Find out taking this survey!

LINK!!

A score of 11 or more MAY indicate you have ADHD:

Staying organized

How often do you have difficulty getting things in order when you have to do a task that requires organization?

* Never: +0
* Rarely: +1 point
* Sometimes: +2 points
* Often: +3 points
* Very often: +4 points

Starting tasks

When you have a task that requires a lot of thought, how often do you avoid or delay getting started?

* Never: +0
* Rarely: +1 point
* Sometimes: +2 points
* Often: +3 points
* Very often: +4 points

Distractions

How often are you distracted by activity or noise around you?

* Never: +0
* Rarely: +1 point
* Sometimes: +2 points
* Often: +3 points
* Very often: +4 points

Staying put

How often do you leave your seat in meetings or other situations in which you are expected to remain seated?

* Never: +0
* Rarely: +1 point
* Sometimes: +2 points
* Often: +3 points
* Very often: +4 points

Feeling fidgety

How often do you feel restless or fidgety?

* Never: +0
* Rarely: +1 point
* Sometimes: +2 points
* Often: +3 points
* Very often: +4 points

Waiting in line

How often do you have difficulty waiting your turn in situations when turn taking is required?

* Never: +0
* Rarely: +1 point
* Sometimes: +2 points
* Often: +3 points
* Very often: +4 points


OK, seriously... who here can get a score lower than 11? I definitely didn't.

I think it would be a bigger indication of Adult ADHD if you couldn't even do the survey to begin with. I mean, having to keep track of your score yourself? Bullshit.

Honestly, I don't believe in ADD/ADHD. I think it's a trend diagnosis that has been adding to an overmedicated America.

I got a 7 but some of those answers were close, though honestly I think it would take more than a little survey to prove a diagnosis.

I just think I'm easily bored and distracted. Curse being jaded and always wondering what's going on somewhere else.

Its really only those first three that I got a rarely or sometimes to, but those last three were straight zeros, because apparently I can wait in line.

13. I do believe I have it (inattentive ADD) and that it's real, this test is just silly though. Should be more about organization, self regulation, sleep, visual indicators, memory issues, schedules, etc.

Whatever.

I started the test, but then was distracted by some kind of movement in my room and decided not to finish it because ... well, I do have Adult ADHD. That test should have been shinier.

Fine, I took it. 15. Okay, I'm off to work and to talk to myself.

Also, you can't really be attentive ADD. That would defeat the purpose of ADD, so adding "inattentive" to "attention deficit disorder" is just redundant.

I had 7 + 10.

So far, I have the highest score. Although, At times I do consider myself to have ADHD. I can be calm when I want, though.

Honestly, I scored 19.

I can't even tell you how many times I'll be saying something and I'll get distracted and listen to something else and then when I get back to the conversation, I clean forgot what we were talking about.

...

I have 20 tabs open. Three of them are Xeogaming posts that I started and still haven't finished.

See, I never have problems while writing. I love writing. I can sit here and write a huge post, only realizing how long it is once I post it. For me, I get distracted easily with things that either do not challenge me or do not concern me. And waiting. I hate waiting.

Needless to say, things that do not challenge/concern me happen every day--and I don't pay attention. Sure, if something interesting happens in a conversation or situation, I'm all ears and can recite the exact words spoken days later (almost literally). Meh. I think I just have selective hearing/attention. Maybe not ADD/ADHD.
