Strengths & Benefits of ADHD
The Plus Side of ADHD
ADHD and Hyper-Focus
What does Hyper Focus Look Like?
Hyper-focus looks like someone with ADHD becoming absorbed in a task that they become oblivious to what’s going on around them. However, being diagnosed with ADHD doesn’t always mean the inability to focus on important things, sometimes their focus is just directed on everything else, or even something specific that most would miss.
The bright side of ADHD and hyper focus is that when someone gets started on a task there is no stopping them until it is complete. It’s a great trait and quality to have to be a go-getter that doesn’t give up when in some cases people do. Children and adults alike with ADHD find it harder to focus on boring tasks, so their focus is directed toward activities and tasks that interest them instead.
Benefits of hyper-focus:
- You’ll push everything to the side to hit a deadline
- With work-related tasks, you’re looked at as talented and someone who loves what you do
- During the beginning of a relationship, there is intense focus and admiration for your partner
- A child can develop their self-esteem by focusing on interesting activities
