I'm a 5w6 with a strong connection (healthy and unhealthy) to 7. I'm not ADD, but all my teachers in elementray school thought I was. I sometimes think I am, too, as I tend to be spacey and have difficulty concentrating for long periods of time. But the psychologist told me I appear to have ADD because I tend to take in many different observations at once. Muy interesante!

> I was wondering if there are any other 5s with ADD/ADHD out there? ADD is always typified as a very 7ish quality, but I'm definitely ADHD and definitely not a 7. However, I am more scattered and distractable when I'm under a lot of stress (which jives with disintegrating to 7). But on the other hand, I'm a lot less depressed and happier with who I am when I just learn to work with my ADD and stop trying to change it. for example, I just let my room be a mess now, and stop thinking that it is somehow wrong.
