Although I’ve never had an “official” diagnosis, those who know me know that I pretty much “fit the profile” of one with ADD.

As posted by “factnotfiction” at tickld.com:

ADHD is about having broken filters on your perception.

 

Normal people have a sort of mental secretary that takes the 99% of irrelevant crap that crosses their mind, and simply deletes it before they become consciously aware of it. As such, their mental workspace is like a huge clean whiteboard, ready to hold and organize useful information.
