- Having difficulty awaiting your turn.
- Interrupting or intruding on others’ conversations
- Finding it difficult to sustain attention on activities and tasks
- Unable to listen when spoken to directly.
- Having difficulties organizing activities at work.
- Unable to follow through on instructions to finish duties in the workplace or at home, not due to a lack of understanding.
- Avoiding or disliking tasks that require substantial mental effort
