7. They will not give up very easily.
Society demands that deadlines are met and people are focused. People with ADHD have difficulty meeting these demands but they have one quality which can often put the orderly ones in the shade. They really excel at sticking it out although some people might say they are stubborn. But persistence is a quality that ADHDers have in abundance and it can really help them to succeed. A great example is Dustin Hoffman who had ADHD:
“In my room as a kid…. I’d play a fighter and get knocked top the floor and come back to win.”- Dustin Hoffman
8. They thrive on support and encouragement.
With the right support, people with ADHD can thrive. A good example is Paul Orfalea,founder of Kinko’s. He remarked that ADHD lets him think of great projects and he gets people to handle the day to day practical details.
