What to Expect From an Online ADHD Test
Our ADHD quiz will give you a sense of whether or not you may have ADHD or ADD, but it will NOT replace a full assessment by a doctor. We recommend that you print your results and take them to your doctor for a diagnosis.
When you take the quiz, you will find 18 quick questions, with the option to choose a YES or NO response for each question. The following are the statements or questions contained in the quiz. Not all of the situations listed may resonate with you, but when you take the quiz, you would pick yes if any of them do.
The first 9 questions will explore Inattention and Focus:
1: I HAVE POOR ATTENTION TO DETAIL
I often make small mistakes. I skim read. I rush things. I mess up dates, get details wrong, or make simple errors because I’m not paying attention.
2: I AM EASILY DISTRACTED
I struggle to finish long complex tasks. Even leisure activities. I may do something else. Or I end up doing several things at once.
3: I AM A POOR LISTENER
I often tune out during long conversations. I may appear to be listening but my mind wanders and I miss what’s being said. Sometimes, I even lose track of what I’m saying, or go off on tangents.
4: I DON’T FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS WELL
I prefer to jump right in, rather than read the instructions, guides, or recipes. I struggle to stick to routines, schedules, or plans.I know what to do, I just don’t seem to do it.
5: I FEEL DISORGANIZED
I have trouble organizing my work or home life. My To-Do lists feel overwhelming. I often procrastinate, unsure where to start, or what I need.
6: I AVOID TASKS THAT NEED SUSTAINED MENTAL EFFORT
I struggle with jobs that demand focus for a long time. I dislike routine, repetitive tasks. I hate paperwork. But when I’m interested, I’m super focused.
7: I OFTEN LOSE THINGS
I often misplace my phone, keys, or TV remote. “I just had it a minute ago!!” I lose important paperwork. My home or work space is cluttered, piles everywhere so I can find things, otherwise, I’ll forget them.
8: I AM EASILY DISTRACTED
I’m easily distracted by conversations, noises, or activity around me. I’m often lost in thought, one idea after another, imagining ideas or situations. I’m smart, but a bit absent-minded. I’m a ‘day-dreamer.’
9: I AM FORGETFUL
I often lose track of what I was supposed to be doing. I’m bad with dates, names, or appointments, or forget to bring something I need. I’ve bought things then realized I already own one.
