The advantages of ADD in a high tech world

It seems to me ADD and the technology industry is a natural fit. The constant change of the high tech world can be stressful and troubling for some people but it’s often stimulating and energizing for the ADDer. A great source of Dopamine hits. Although, there are no specific statistics a number of other ADD experts I’ve talked to agree with my observation.

10 advantages of having ADD in a high tech career:

  1. The Ability to Hyperfocus.
  2. Rapid Fire Mind.
  3. Multitasking at Will.
  4. High Energy Level.
  5. Highly Creative.
  6. Quick Learner.
  7. Stimulus Seeking Brain.
  8. Constantly Scanning your Environment.
  9. Great in a Crisis.
  10. Risk Taker.
