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. For example when thinking strategically or being creative, focusing on the wider picture means we gather a larger amount of data with which to shape our thoughts and intuitions. In this mode we connect different ideas and concepts, identify patterns and generally experience a flow of thoughts, feelings and ideas.
