The unique wiring of the ADHD brain shows up in

the paradox of ADHD, namely:

  • Both weaknesses, as well as natural strengths and talents, are more intensely experienced.
  • In areas and situations which hold high personal interest, the ADDer has no problem to focus, can sustain focus and engage intensely.

This paradox presents a major reason for the ignorance and prejudice frequently associated with ADHD.
