Difficulty Paying Attention/Focusing
This is probably the most well-known symptom of ADHD, but it goes further than just having a hard time concentrating at work or school. People who experience difficulty focusing, often have trouble starting tasks or completing them, may be easily distracted by things that don’t relate to the task at hand, and may become bored quickly without external stimulation. They might also have a hard time following conversations or miss important details due to their lack of focus.
Hyperactivity is another common symptom of ADHD; people who have this symptom often feel an uncontrollable urge to move around or talk more than usual. This can manifest as fidgeting in place, tapping fingers and feet incessantly, feeling restless even when sitting still, talking too much and too quickly, or interrupting others while they are speaking.
Impulsivity involves acting without thinking through the consequences first or not being able to control your behavior even when you know that it could be dangerous or inappropriate. People with this symptom might blurt out answers before questions are finished being asked, take risks without considering potential outcomes (like jumping from high places), act without regard for social norms (like interrupting conversations), make hasty decisions without weighing pros and cons first, and engage in impulsive behaviors like gambling or spending sprees even if they cannot afford them.
Forgetfulness is another common symptom of ADHD; people may forget appointments they made or tasks they need to complete due to their lack of focus on any one thing for too long or because they simply weren’t paying attention in the first place. They might also struggle with organizing their thoughts as well as physical items like bills and keys due to their disorganization skills being affected by the disorder itself.
Time blindness refers specifically to people having trouble understanding how much time has passed since a particular event occurred; this could manifest as constantly running late for appointments, missing deadlines because they didn’t start working until far too late into the process, forgetting birthdays/holidays/other important dates despite their best intentions not too, etc.
