Of course it is! Those who have children with ADHD already knew this. Her ADHD is what makes my daughter able to teach herself German and Chinese and Japanese while taking 2 years of Latin in school. She's a talented artist whose art had already been displayed all over our state before she even left elementary school. Her brain thrives in situations where I become overwhelmed and feel overtaxed.
We tried medication, because it was suggested by her doctor that it might help her concentrate more at school. It was a total disaster. She was almost zombified by it. She couldn't even stay awake long enough to go to school and come home and eat dinner afterward. We thought it might improve after a few weeks, but it didn't. When my daughter came to me and told me that it made it impossible for her to make art and that it felt like something was blocking her thoughts, we took her off of it, IMMEDIATELY.
She's in high school now and she's learned how to compensate for her weaknesses. She's thriving and she's not drugged, which is more than I can say for a huge chunk of the adult population in this country.
She, and the others like her, are definitely the new model of humans. I have a moderately high IQ and her father is in the genius IQ rating. Though I can see where her father and I have a few of the traits she exhibits, it's very clear that she has a lot of abilities that we don't.
