Quite possibly. I think Dr. Hallowell mentioned how sometimes when we make new discoveries, we (society overall) tends to get 'excited' and perhaps apply it to everyone. I'm sure a lot of us started to 'see' ADHD in everyone just after we were all diagnosed.

Either they learn better coping skills, or maybe they were misdiagnosed. Or they find activites that don't necessarily bring out their ADHD. That's why a lot of undiagnosed adults are under employed. If I worked at Starbucks, it doesn't necessarily bring out my ADHD quite in the way working in an office or even working in my hospital does.
