I don't belive that is such a thing as ADHD, even in the helm of pedagogi it it still a metter of discussion, if there is no chemical unbalance or proved neurological problems in the individual that comproves some anomaly on the neurosistem, it should be only considered as a behaviour not a medical condition.
Diagnostic someone with a disturb just because he dislikes repetitive tasks? Pff give me a break.
Obviously that the majorit os NP's will be diagnosticated with ADD and ENP's ADHD, they tend consider it as a unhealty behaviour.
COMMON ADD TRAIT DESCRIPTIONS INCLUDE:
High energy and restless / Hyperactivity
Takes on, starts too many projects
Loses interest easily
May fail to follow through, forget appointments
Tendency to hyperfocus and not be able to easily break out of it
Tendency to see everything at once, to think “globally” and see many possibilities at once, making it difficult to make certain kinds of decisions
Higher than average tolerance for chaos and change
Often exhibit high risk-taking, high stimulation seeking behavior
Often hyper-reactive and sensitive – Strong reactions to thoughts, noise, people talking, everything in their environment – may notice everything, or tend to shut down and become inattentive to everything, or a combination of both
Tend to criticize themselves constantly
Tend to always be scanning or hunting – looking around for anything that might be new or different, or out of place, looking to make connections, to see patterns, may not even be aware of this. So they seem not to be listening when actually they are trying to take everything in, though sometimes they really aren’t listening because they can’t focus on just one thing that is coming in through their senses
Highly intuitive thinking
Inconsistency of attention, mood
ENTP / ENFP TRAITS
Unusually Enthusiastic, [high energy and high enthusiasm is VERY characteristic of ADD)
"Apt to express interest in everything" [this makes it very difficult to focus and make choices about how to use your time]
Characteristically have an eye out for a better way [leads to constantly changing and not sticking to systems you create to organize yourself]
Always on the lookout for new projects, new activities, new procedures [ a clear link to all those unfinished projects ADD is famous for]
Always seem to be several jumps ahead [Another hallmark of ADD brains that process informationally globally and often see patterns before others do. Many famous inventors and scientists who made significant discoveries are thought to have had ADD]
INTP / INFP TRAITS
“Can concentrate better than any other personality type” [Similar to hyperfocusing]
“Once caught up in a thought process, that thought process seems to have a will of its own for INTPS, and they persevere until the issue is comprehended” [More hyperfocus]
“Impatient with routine details” [Impacts ability to "maintain" traditional organizing systems]
“The INTP must be given an efficient support staff who can capture ideas as they emerge and before the INTP loses interest and turns to other ideas” [How I would LOVE this! and how unrealistic this is. The book is obviously old enough to remember when most managers had their own secretaries. I had my own Exec Assistant when I was a manger at Arthur Andersen's Center for Professional Education...it was AWESOME!!! I miss her!]
INTP’s are often forgetful of appointments and the rituals of daily living unless they are reminded. [Need I say more?]

I was diagnosticated as a child to but my father resisted as hell everyone telling that I should take the medicines,and I'm glad for it, that thing seems like a kind of lobotomy.
ADD and your variants are just pure bullshit.
