Re: ADHD and General Intelligence - the Biological Perspective

So many here on this internet forum have above average intelligence and yet have AD(H)D diagnoses. So? Tell us something else new. I would assume the bell curve applies in this case as it does in so many others. Sheer probability assures that there will be those on the far slope who have higher intelligence and AD(H)D. Are we representative? Probably not.

Of course it's arguable whether this applies to the "ADD in college" set. I have my own doubts -- which I have expressed elsewhere.
