The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between work and play.
–Arnold J. Toynbee
If there is one thing that someone with ADHD-I is good at, it is this: working hard at things that are play. When he or she finds something interesting, hours and hours (which often “should” be spent doing something else) are spent doing that thing. This can be in things that are actual play–like video games. Often, though, it is engagement in or research about a very productive topic. In fact, often when one sees a person with the inattentive subtype of ADHD zoned out, even though he or she appears to be completely spaced, the truth is he or she is most likely very, very concentrated on something that’s interesting to him or her, to the exclusion of all other stimuli.
