This is a meetup that I would like to propose, for discussing the topic of ADHD. Thank you to Tea for tabling the topic of ADHD. Having now read a little about ADHD, I recognize many of the ADHD symptoms in myself. And I have the feeling that ADHD may overlap to a significant degree with the "extraverted iNtuition" (Ne) trait in Jung and Myers-Briggs. Also from having read about ADHD, I now have the distinct impression that the name "ADHD" is a *huge* misnomer. It is not a "disorder", it is simply a way of mental operation that is different from the boring and rule-obsessed majority. It is not an attention deficit or a case of hyperactivity, it is simply a different mental methodology of focusing on things (ADHD people focus intensely on one thing that grabs their own interest, whereas "normal" people focus on multiple things that society tells them to focus on). Things to discuss include: * Does the concept of "ADHD" make sense? * Does ADHD overlap with "Ne" in Jung/MBTI, and if so then to which degree? * Is ADHD a disorder, or a character trait? Addendum (added June 1): I just read in Lucy Lo Palladino in her description of the "Discoverer" type of "Edison Trait" people: "If he does not find people stimulating, he will stimulate them, usually by provoking laughter or anger." This seems a strong indication that this overlaps with the MBTI "ENTP" type. --- Proposed approximate date for this meetup: Somewhere in September-Oktober. The date of "Sep 28" shown for the event at this moment is only a temporary placeholder dummy (I had to fill in something in order to create the page for this event). The exact date for the meetup event is still to be determined (first one to contact me gets their meetup date preference met as far as I am able to). To join this event, please contact me (Menno Rubingh) (click on me, then click "Message"). It is not possible to join this event by RSVPing via the meetup.com RSVP mechanism. If you're interested in discussing this topic, then please comment below, or contact me via PM. Please post additional ADHD-related points and questions that you would like to discuss. Please contact me and tell me your preferences for a date for this event. Looking forward to hearing from you guys!
