From what I’m reading on this website and in books, yes. I know that I’ve read why but I can’t remember at the moment. Lol. I’m very sensitive to hostility and tension. I’m a people pleaser, as are many ADHD Inattentive types. If you’re a pleaser and you feel that someone isn’t pleased, you’re going to feel like you didn’t do your ‘job’. If they act angry about it, then it’s going to make you anxious. Feeling disappointed in yourself for not pleasing + anxious + an angry/aggressive/displeased person does NOT equal a happy ADHD Inattentive type person. At least that’s been my experience Difficulty with being assertive is also part of being ADHD Inattentive type.
