@Gianmaria, here’s a seemingly silly question for you…
When you draw a clock (the kind with hands), how do you number it?
(a) All the numbers in sequence, from 1 to 12
(b) The key numbers (12, 6, 3, 9) first, and then fill in the numbers between them
I’ve found that every ADDer I’ve asked has responded (b), and that every non-ADDer I’ve asked has responded (a).
As far as I know, this “draw a clock” test is not part of the diagnostic testing for ADHD, though it is part of the testing for Alzheimer’s (with different criteria).
It would be interesting to see more research into this, as a possible indicator of the non-linear thinking of the ADHD brain.REPORT ABUSE
