Creativity is an Upside to ADHD
Newswise: Parents who believe that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder makes their kids more creative got a little more scientific support recently.
A new study in the Journal of Personality and Individual Differences found adults with ADHD enjoyed more creative achievement than those who didnt have the disorder.
For the same reason that ADHD might create problems, like distraction, it can also allow an openness to new ideas, says Holly White, assistant professor of cognitive psychology at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida and co author of the paper. Not being completely focused on a task lets the mind make associations that might not have happened otherwise.
White and Priti Shah at the University of Michigan gave 60 college students, half of them with ADHD, a series of tests measuring creativity across 10 domains. The ADHD group scored higher across the board.
The ADHD group showed more of a preference for brainstorming and generating ideas than the non ADHD group, which preferred refining and clarifying ideas.
The study is a follow-up to one done in 2006, which focused on laboratory measures of creativity and found that ADHD individuals show better performance on tests of creative divergent thinking.
We didnt know if that would translate into real-life achievement, says Shah. The current study suggests that it does.

Please let me know if theres anything further that I can provide, or if I can email you a pdf of the study, Creative style and achievement in adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
We help Eckerd College with some of its public affairs work.

OVER 60 POINTS:
Others see you as someone they should "handle with care."
You are seen as vain, self-centered, and extremely dominant.
Others may admire you and wish they could be more like you, but they don't always trust you and hesitate to become too deeply involved with you.
FROM 51 TO 60 POINTS:
Your friends see you as an exciting, highly volatile, rather impulsive personality; a natural leader, quick to make
decisions (though not always the right ones). They see you as bold and venturesome, someone who will try anything once; someone who takes a chance and enjoys an adventure. They enjoy being in your company because of the excitement you radiate.
FROM 41 TO 50 POINTS:
Others see you as fresh, lively, charming, amusing,practical, and always interesting; someone who is constantly the center of attention, but sufficiently well-balanced not to let it go to your head. They see you also as kind,considerate,and understanding; someone who will cheer them up and help them out.
FROM 31 TO 40 POINTS:
Other people you as sensible, cautious, careful,and practical. They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest.Not a person who makes friends too quickly or too easily, but someone who is extremely loyal to the friends you do make and who expects the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you realize that it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but, equally, that it takes you a long time to get over it if that trust is broken.
FROM 21 TO 30 POINTS:
Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy. They see you as very,very cautious and extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder.It would really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively or on the spur of the moment. They expect you to examine everything carefully from every side and then, usually decide against it. They think this reaction on your part is caused partly by your careful nature and partly by laziness.
UNDER 21 POINTS:
People think you are shy, nervous, and indecisive, someone who needs to be looked after, who always wants someone else to make the decisions and who doesn't want to get involved with anyone or anything. They see you as a worrier,who sees problems that don't exist. Some people think you're boring. Only the people who know you well know that you aren't.
