Are you secretly struggling from ADD?
When it comes to determining what is and what isn't reality, our minds sometimes struggle with the images that our eyes are sending to it. Have you ever looked at a picture or image and thought one thing was happening, when in reality, it wasn't happening at all?
Every day there are visual stimuli that the brain has difficulty coping with in one way or another. It's the foundation that magicians and illusionists build their craft on — the idea that you can trick the mind into believing a false reality using subtle visual cues.
The ADD test below is one that tests your level of perception and how well you can decipher fact from fiction based on the level of Attention Deficit Disorder you suffer from.
What is Attention Deficit Disorder, also known as ADD? ADD is a common condition that affects the "executive functioning skills" of our brains. These include attention, concentration, memory, motivation, organization and social skills. While children and teenagers make up a majority of the people diagnosed with this disorder, many adults suffer from it as well, or from ADHD.
Though the disorder is manageable, it can be difficult for individuals to cope with it, as it affects their daily lives. People with ADD and ADHD struggle with restlessness, thoughts constantly racing through their minds, and excessive talking and multitasking.
But ADD is also a common indicator of how well you perceive visual information because it relies so much on the executive function skills described above. If you excel in those areas, there's a good chance you will answer most of the questions correctly. If you get a majority of the questions wrong, there's also a good chance you have a higher level of ADD than you thought.
Take the quiz and find out for yourself. And don't forget to share with friends and loved ones you think would love to take the quiz for themselves, especially the ones you know have crazy ADD.
