In a study published in Science Direct, the relation between ADHD and hyper focus was investigated.
“In healthy adults, the frequency of hyper focus was positively correlated with ADHD traits; older age and higher education were correlated with fewer hyper focus occurrences in a smaller number of situations,” noted the study.
It continued: “ADHD patients and matched controls did not differ in the occurrence, frequency, duration and pervasiveness of hyper focus, but hyper focus was less likely to occur in educational and social situations in ADHD patients.”
The study also found that people with ADHD are often easily distracted.
