ADHD Quiz

 

The quiz at the end of this page is designed to give you an indication as to whether or not you may have ADHD.

In all of our lives there is a period of time in which we are stressed, have a lot on our mind or just can’t get that one task done.

If you systematically experience these frustrations, you may be suffering from ADHD.

This test is designed to give you an indication as to whether or not you may have ADHD.

Please remember, the result will be an indication, not a diagnosis!


Characteristics related to attention problems:

  • Difficulty listening
  • Difficulty completing tasks
  • Difficulty following instructions
  • Difficulty with administrative tasks
  • Difficulty planning and organizing
  • Difficulty making an overview of the main and secondary tasks
  • Postponing tasks
  • Not being able to remain attentive unless a topic is interesting enough

Characteristics related to hyperactivity:

  • Having to stay busy
  • Difficulty sitting still
  • Inner restlessness
  • Difficulty relaxing

Characteristics related to impulsivity:

  • Doing, then thinking;
  • Difficulty waiting;
  • Interrupting others
  • Often having to reconsider decisions

Having some of these characteristics does not necessarily mean that you are dealing with ADHD. In addition to currently having characteristics that are related to attention problems and/or hyperactivity and impulsivity.

It is equally important to have experienced these characteristics from an early age. In addition, the symptoms you are dealing with should have a clear negative effect on your daily life and in several areas of your daily life; such as in your social relationships and/or at school/work. It is also very important to have excluded that there are psychological problems (such as a mood disorder) that could possibly explain your symptoms.

Curious about how if you may be suffering from ADHD? Take the test below.
