    Feel like a fog is lifting

    Always knew, but did'nt KNOW. Friday nt. I was researching left handedness...led to visual/ spatial to personality typing to here. I feel so cheated by the ed. system...not that I would have been, but I cant help but wonder how much genius has been lost? How many are living a life feeling out of step and disconnected, frustrated? We all have but one shot at life. Imo 30% of the kids, maybe the our best shot for a future of innovative solutions are visual/ spatial, "ADD" or "ADHD"...bullshit...intellectual genecide via. pharmacology by a lazy system and brain washed parents to busy acquiring the american dream to do a little research. Real shame at 47 I have spent my life knowing I was intelligent but not "smart enough". WELL F#@%K THAT!!! Gotten by ok...but now I understand, going to unleash and trust the gift. We were the kids in the back row who did'nt get it...you are correct, we didnt get why those whom knew so much were waisting our time. They did'nt know how... they should have. We trusted them.

    Unknown Personality

    Yeeeeeah, I remember reading some article that linking ADHD ADD to watching too much television. Something to do with how television doesn't stick to the realistic notion of 'time'. So we get bombarded with all this chop and change input and then we re-enter the real world and everything seems too slow so we get bored and switch off/tune out. It makes sense but I don't know how much truth is in it. IMO more than other explanations I've read.
    I also like to view certain things in life as a test, they are put in front of you to see how well you understand and how much determination you have to get around them. It makes me wonder.. *shrugs*

    I actually have ADHD and it's a physical disease, not a mental one like some "health practicioners" would have you believe. It is a lack of dopamine in the, what is it, frontal lobe? somewhere in there. Basically my neurons do not have as many dopamine hooks as someone without ADHD. Therefore I do not receive as much dopamine and I don't produce it as readily either.

    There's plenty of articles on it via google. I can't post links quite yet.

    I struggled through school, but luckily my extremely high IQ allowed me to pass without much effort.

    Only education has lifted the fog for me, but I feel the same way as you do about the current medical system.

    ENTP - The Visionaries

    I wonder if there is a higher number of ENTP's with ADHD or ADD? It does kind of go with the personality type, I think. I'm kind of new to type watching, is there a link?

    ENTP - The Visionaries

    Go figure. I had myself labeled as an undiagnosed but functioning ADHD/ADD but really I'm just a typical ENTP. It also goes to show that our American psych professionals are prescribing meds to people for just being a normal personality type. Thank God my parents were hippy types who didn't believe in medicating me on the basis of some teachers problems with my excessive energy level. I like my personality the way it is.
