Question to those with INATTENTIVE add; are you rich?

I want to ask those with INATTENTIVE add (the add without hyperactivity) if they are rich or have rich parents.

I am doing this for research purposes.

Re: Question to those with INATTENTIVE add; are you rich?

sorr.. i had to come to a place where i was able to stop punching myself in the face to keep myself from raging all over vBullitin.

but.. "for research purposes"..

my father was a man of the cloth. which meant we were the inverse of "rich".

he did however achieve multiple doctorates and several masters degrees spreading from theology through marriage and addiction and crisis and traumatology.

ill admit.. im working really hard to be.. open.. to the purpose of this poll.

there was less than 0 money in my family.

hope that helps.. justify .. something.. for you..

Re: Question to those with INATTENTIVE add; are you rich?

that said.. there really needs to be another criteria added to this poll..

I.. am DEFINITELY NOT rich..

and NEITHER were my parents.. and NEVER have been.

and NO.. there was no Inheritance.. In fact.. any "inheritance" will be built on MY shoulders..

and YES.. we worked our rear ends off... the entire time. Every day.

Re: Question to those with INATTENTIVE add; are you rich?

ive lost it. (and yes im drunk.. deal with it).

i tried.

you're inferring that people with innatentive ADHD are entitled to be innatentive, because of some financial panacea/cyanide.

no.

it doesnt work like that..

3 of your 4 poll questions.. explicitly imply wealth as an environmental factor..

Re: Question to those with INATTENTIVE add; are you rich?

im so well aware of the "fianncial issue" that is being brought up (albeit inversely).. that i turned my back on the church.. and psychology.. to pursue a life of science and engineering to try and offset "poverty".. and.. the problems are very real still. no "riches" about it.

Not at all. I'm pretty sure my procrastination and distraction has prevented me from opportunities where I could have become rich.



I would say though, that "rich" is too ambiguous of a term for a study.

Re: Question to those with INATTENTIVE add; are you rich?

Giving the OP the benefit of the doubt, maybe he actually has an idea that ADHD-I is something that only gets diagnosed in the children of wealthy parents (well, I'd go "down" to middle to upper middle class but whatevs) because the symptoms are such that if you're poor your condition is not called ADHD-PI but "yet another thing to suffer in silence and/or blame yourself about".

The thing is, the hyperactive strain of ADHD doesn't really get diagnosed so much in the poor either; instead, that gets called "you are going to jail, have fun". Look. I am trying to read this in a positive way, okay!?

Re: Question to those with INATTENTIVE add; are you rich?

Are you saying that rich people are more likely to be diagnosed in general or diagnosed PI?

I'd say yes in general but especially for PI just because it's more subtle. Also I'm not a fan of the wording (I'd just say "not poor" instead) but hey, not my OP.

I should have been more clear. I wasnt responding you you, I agree with you. The OP didnt elaborate and gave these as answers:
Quote:
Yes, I am rich.
No, I am not rich.
I have rich parents, but am not rich myself.
I have rich parents and I am rich.
I just dont understand what being inattentive has to do with it.

Rich is not a very nice word. Privileged is what I was taught. And people who are prefer not to talk about it.
