Over 9000 people turned up to 11 for an autistic Canadian interviewer with ADHD. He's still the best interviewer ever and could out-interview Bruce Willis. In addition to having autism, Nardwuar has also been diagnosed with ADHD and depression. He says that when he was younger, doctors thought he was lazy because of his condition, but today many adults with ASD take medication every day just like everyone else. Nardwuar has spoken about how difficult it is to understand someone who doesn't follow the social norms, saying that people with ASD don't understand why others don't want to be around them all the time. They assume that if someone doesn't like them, it must be because they did something wrong, when in fact it may be because they are different. People with ASD can have very good ideas about things, but they need someone to listen to them.
Thomas was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 28, and he believes it has provided him with a little insight into those who aren't neurotypical. "I think for me personally, having had attention deficit disorder, it's helped me understand people who don't have it as well," he said. "It's not that I'm patient with them, but we do have our days where things don't go our way. That's just part of life for everyone."
Those who know Thomas say his patience is one of his most notable traits. His wife, actress Emily Deschanel, told People magazine, "He's very thoughtful and considerate, which isn't always the case with celebrities. He's very down to earth and easy to get along with."
His former teammate Brian Dawkins also has ADHD and when asked if there were any other players on the team with the condition, he said, "No, but there are lots of crazy people in sports. It's a dangerous business - I made that mistake once myself!"
Thomas says he tries to stay focused by listening to music while he works out. "I like some hard rock stuff like Metallica or Anthrax," he said. "Or some hip-hop if I'm feeling really motivated."
He does, in fact, have ADHD, as proven by a September 27, 2013 Hypixel Forum post. Techno has briefly shown his face in his 100,000 subscriber special and his "Cooking with Technoblade" videos. He also has a blog where he posts articles about video games.
His most popular video is probably the "My Dad's a Tool" series, which tells about his father who hates technology and loves doing things the old-fashioned way. In the first video of this series, Sapnap goes to his dad with a PS3 prototype and asks him if it's okay to play video games. His father throws them out of the house and moves all of the furniture around so that he can rebuild his house without computers.
In the second video, he buys the house next door and starts fixing it up. Then he invites his friends over and plays Xbox games while his parents are away for Memorial Day weekend. In the third video, he gets his own room and uses the money he makes from selling lemonade to buy a Nintendo Wii.
These videos were very popular among the Hypixel community and helped them understand the importance of technology. Even though his father thinks that these technologies are a bad idea, they still love playing with his toys.
Technically, the elf in the movie has nothing to do with ADHD. Though I can't tell if Buddy has ADHD for various reasons (I'm not qualified, we don't know his medical history, and he's a fictitious character), he does exhibit several of the basic symptoms of ADHD. He is impulsive, doesn't consider the consequences of his actions, isn't able to maintain focus for long periods of time, and finds it difficult to resist temptation.
ADHD is a brain disorder that causes people who have it to have problems with attention and concentration. It is common in children who are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Research shows that around 50% of individuals with ASD also have ADHD. Because of this high rate of co-occurrence, some doctors view those with ASD as having an increased risk of developing ADHD.
People who have ADHD may not be aware of their problem or say they're "just not interested" in something when they actually have difficulty focusing on multiple tasks at once. They may seem distracted or fidgety as they try to stay focused on one thing for longer than usual. Also, someone with ADHD may forget things very easily. They may think they remembered something but actually forgot what it was they were trying to remember.
Those who have ADHD may feel embarrassed by its effects on them personally or socially.
