Part of the problem is a one-size-fits-all culture that leads people to believe they should assimilate into an average pool of personal expectations and behavior. That disconnect is what I believe is responsible for the perception of some very useful but uncommon personality traits as pathological. The ADHD individual may seem distracted and difficult to be around for the same reason a hunting dog kept confined indoors will eventually become miserable (their needs aren't being met.)

Poor time management, difficulty setting priorities, and other job-related difficulties bedevil workers with ADD. These problems all have to do with executive functioning, a set of cognitive abilities arising within the brain's prefrontal lobe.<br />
<br />
"This is the part of the brain that does self-monitoring," says Nadeau. "Your executive functioning tells you whether you're on time or not, whether you're doing what you're supposed to be doing and doing it in an efficient way - basically, the skills that we expect most adults to have. In people with ADD, the prefrontal lobe is chronically under-aroused, and so the ability to monitor behavior is impaired."<br />
<br />
Many workers with ADD find it helpful to draw up a detailed work schedule with the assistance of a co-worker or supervisor, and then to check back with this individual periodically to make sure everything is on track. <br />
<br />
Poor executive functioning explains why a person with ADD can waste hours on a minor task or get distracted by the slightest interruption. It's why papers never get filed and the office is always a mess.
