ADHD and ADD
Attention describes the process of perceiving internal or external stimuli and data. We require a narrow or broad focus of attention depending on the type of task we are carrying out.

In this mode we connect different ideas and concepts, identify patterns and generally experience a flow of thoughts, feelings and ideas.
