Emotions play a key role in what people do, think, and say. They can also trigger certain ADHD symptoms.
Someone with ADHD is more in touch with their emotions than the average person. And not in a “girly” way, but more so in the sense that they have a deeper level of empathy for themselves.
If a person with ADHD gets excited, they may be more likely to act on an impulse or become hyperactive and unfocused. The same goes for any other emotion, like fear, anger, or happiness.
