Neurotypes

ADHD

ADHD is about attentional and emotional regulation.
ADHD is perhaps the worst named neurotype in existence. Ostensibly “Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder”, ADHD can be at least as much about emotional regulation, time blindness and rejection sensitivity as it is about attention.
This is fundamentally a difference in the way dopamine is released in the brain. Neurotypical brains receive dopamine for achieving tasks; ADHD brains receive dopamine for satisfying curiosity. This means our motivational systems are fundamentally at odds with everyone else’s, and it explains why our executive function can be so debilitatingly bad.

I think I’m pretty great and have interesting thoughts and infodumps. More seriously, I am a late diagnosed AuDHDer who is trained as an ADHD coach. I Tweet a lot about my experiences and realizations. It’s not an option in the neurotypes, but I’m also dyspraxic. Sometimes I talk about being a dyspraxic aerialist and how I do movement things I like while being clinically uncoordinated.
