Hi Billy,Hi, I'm Billy and I'm an INTJ. I was wondering if there are any INTJs with ADHD. You see I'm an INTJ with ADHD. Any comments?
Child Psychologist Jerome Kagan on Overprescibing Drugs to Children - SPIEGEL ONLINESPIEGEL: Experts speak of 5.4 million American children who display the symptoms typical of ADHD. Are you saying that this mental disorder is just an invention?
Kagan: That's correct; it is an invention. Every child who's not doing well in school is sent to see a pediatrician, and the pediatrician says: "It's ADHD; here's Ritalin." In fact, 90 percent of these 5.4 million kids don't have an abnormal dopamine metabolism. The problem is, if a drug is available to doctors, they'll make the corresponding diagnosis.
I don't know that I agree that it is an invention, just over diagnosed as Dr. Kagan who has been doing this for 50 years and is very respected was saying.ADHD can be incredibly disabling. People who think it's an invention by Big Pharma to sell Ritalin, or sheer ''laziness',' likely haven't experienced how truly god awful it can be.
I have a theory that ADHD manifests in S-types as hyperactivity and N-types as innattentiveness [I'm innattentive subtype]. Haven't really thought about how to explain the combined type, though.
You sure have not read my first post in this thread. ADHD is not disabling.ADHD can be incredibly disabling. People who think it's an invention by Big Pharma to sell Ritalin, or sheer ''laziness',' likely haven't experienced how truly god awful it can be.
Please, tell me more about my own disability. I'm fascinated. I suppose you'll tell me I'm not physically disabled either, just ''not suited for walking''.You sure have not read my first post in this thread. ADHD is not disabling.
Wanting to do something you are not suited for is disabling. If you can't
lift a pint of milk are you gonna try and work as a lumber jack??????????
Of course not, that would be stupid. ADD or ADHD is not a disability. You
can keep believing that if it makes you feel any better but it is not.
Nevermind, you won't get it. I'm done wasting time on your pathetic self.Please, tell me more about my own disability
I'll take a theory that is generally endorsed by disability organizations and has some effect on public policy re: disabled people over someone acting belligerent on an internet forum.Nevermind, you won't get it. I'm done wasting time on your pathetic self.
If you think that quoting Wikipedia makes you look informed you are so
mistaken. Go on and be disabled as much as you want, seems that you
actually like it.
