Patient discussion about creativity

Q. are there any good sides in ADHD? I heard that ADHD kids are more creative then others, can it be or someone was just messing with me...

A. They are very creative. I think it's because they get all that information from all around so they connect it differently then everyone else. if you take that quality and connect it with high levels of energy - you can get a good problem solver. I have ADHD and i work as an electronic engineer. And I’m good at it ;)
