Some symptoms are more commonly mentioned than others. you need to have a broad spectrum of symptoms although they do vary. some symptoms I have (other than the obvious) are: vivid daydreaming/fantasising talking outloud to self (as inner thoughts get muddled) spelling words back to front High I.Q and creativity severe mood swings frequent change of job/hobby/study obsessive about a subject for a short period Anxiety (often have a "pre-exam" feeling) short temper tiredness sensitive to taste, noise, light and touch forgets words/replaces with made up words immature personality dislikes authority, being told what to do & instructions has trouble waking up in the morning changes t.v/radio channels frequently can't think of nothing... has white noise in head tend to read peoples faces and tone of voice rather than whats being said. intuitive. procrastinate. always see projects as unfinished poor self esteem claustophobic seem "ditsy" there are lots more but I'm bored now!

It would take more than "a bit" of any of those things to be considered ADD/ADHD. If you truly have it, it will significantly impair your life.
