Strattera / Stimulant Comparison

I am wondering if there may be a connection between which stimulant works for a person, and which antidepressant-that-is-also-used-for-ADHD works for them.

Theoretically, people for whom ampthetamines like Dex and Adderall work should respond better to Strattera (because both work more heavily on the Norepinephrine), and people who respond better to Methylphenidate should respond better to Wellbutrin as well (as both work primarily on Dopamine and work more similarly, i.e. on the re-uptake of Dopamine).

So the question is to people who have tried both stimulants and Strattera:
BARRING any physical side effects (that may be related to other individual problems and metabolisms), and just from the point of view of helping your ADHD symptoms: Which ones worked and which ones didn't?
I'm not a 'people person', I am a one person at a time kind of person
