A job with high-stress and/or infinitessimal possible outcomes is a career worth exploring.

Air Traffic Controller

Having been professionally diagnosed with ADHD, a job that I really enjoyed was being an air traffic controller (in between study terms).

That job kept me super focused when it was time to be in the zone. With so many variables to keep track of, I really enjoyed the challenge. Time flew by fast when stuff happened.

Downside is that I would be bored until the next event occured.

Having ADHD is clearly an advantage in this type of job. Ideally, finding a career in which we can use our “gift of ADHD” and use it to its fullest potential would be the ultimate goal.

Does anyone else have any jobs they’ve done that really peaked their interest and haing ADHD was a clear asset?
