ADHD Linked to Genius

A Dublin researcher and professor has theorized that mild-ADHD may be linked to some forms of genius:

"People with ADHD have symptoms of inattentiveness, but they often also have a capacity to hyper-focus on a narrow area that is of particular interest to them." "Clearly ADHD is not a guarantee of genius, but the focused work-rate that it produces may enable creative genius to flourish."

The article states that individuals, such as Kurt Cobain, Thomas Edison, and Che Guevara, are among those that possibly benefited from their ADHD.

I'm especially optimistic about this hypothesis and my potentiality for genius, especially considering another recent BBC article about how sun exposure increases men's testosterone and libido.
