My brother is a 12 year old ISTP, with a very short attention span.
He is taking a very important national exam at the end of the year and he is very capable of doing well (he's the intelligent but lazy type), but he just CANNOT focus on one thing for more than 15 minutes. One minute he does his work, the next minute he is off playing with a pen or ANYTHING else that is nearby him
My aunt thinks he has some attention problem but I think he just needs to be more determined in helping himself get over this problem. I don't think my parents would want to give him any presciption pills for ADHD so he has to solve this problem by himself, without medication.
Are there any ISTPs who have/had this problem too? How do you help yourself to stay focused during your study time? What motivates you to work hard to achieve your goals?
