3 Signs You Do Not Have ADHD: Part II

Introduction

In my previous article I discussed three reasons why individuals with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity may not have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.  They include finishing projects, a friend suggesting you get tested for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, in addition to family members not having Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.  This article will expand upon this current topic and provide readers with three more reasons why individuals may not have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

You Are Curious To Find Out If You Have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

According to totallyadd.com, “I am not the only ADHD adult who has noticed that the people who are the most vehemently opposed to the possibility that they might have this mindset are the ones who seem to have lots of the symptoms. A number of the experts in our videos have told us the same thing.”  To explain further, if you are researching symptoms to find out whether or not you have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, you probably do not have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.  This is what is called anxiety.  According to this source, individuals who have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder who are most “vehemently opposed” to finding out more about their diagnosis most likely have a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

You Tend To Listen More Than You Talk

One of the symptoms associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is excessive talking and interrupting someone during a conversation.  On a further note, if you tend to listen more than you talk and are not interrupting someone during a conversation, chances are you do not have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

You Have A Great Sense Of Time

Another sign you may not have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is if you have a great sense of time.  Individuals with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder have difficulty with organization.  If you do not have difficulty with organization, chances are you do not have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Conclusion

This article has described three particular reasons why an individual may not have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, including being curious to find out if you have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, a tendency to listen more than you talk, in addition to having a great sense of time.  If you exhibit any of of these three signs, chances are you do not have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.  On a most important note, do not self-diagnose yourself.  Always check with a health professional.
