It’s strange to hear guys brag about ADHD (used to be the fave was autism) as if that 1. makes them more intelligent and 2. as if all their ‘symptoms’ are magically explained (they’re not) by a condition (hypoagency, victim mentality).
“I can’t pay attention, I have ADHD” – “I can play video games for hours and often read reddit all night”
It’s obvious for certain symptoms they actually have a personality disorder, the cluster Bs in particular are quite specific.
When they complain about feeling apathetic, having no solid identity (often imitating shallow role models, usually called Alphas or Chads – cringe!), how they get triggered (into a rage, in a personal way) at random news stories when it’s just the standard SJW ‘debate’ with other SJWs, for example, it’s quite obvious they’re borderline.
Their cognitive issues are diagnosed as ADHD, when their symptoms, if you really listen, are emotional. But therapists look for cognitive disorders in men, emotional in women. Prevalence doesn’t work like that.
A lot of narcissists like hiding behind a diagnosis so you let them get away with things.
BPDs lie the most about what their condition “really” means if they have to own having it and try to expand or constantly change it to suit what they want. Clusters Bs are compulsive liars, don’t believe their opinions on psychiatry unless they have training (it would get sniffed out during training, so they don’t). They’ll also reference books like the DSM hoping nobody checks because what they claim isn’t in the book nor what those words mean (they are not written for laymen). They get angry if you check their sources and so often fail to include them “accidentally”.
A male BPD claiming to have ADHD would tack-on all sorts of BPD symptoms into their version of what ADHD “really” is. Before ADHD it was “high functioning autism” specifically, before that a trend for bipolar. Whatever is seen as creative genius high IQ alpha big brained wigger disease is what they’ll claim, like a rawr girl claiming she’s too random to be contained by heterosexuality. It’s funny once you learn to spot the patterns.
Not listening in this case is a sign of low IQ and poor predictor of life outcomes since they don’t actually try. The guy with four marriages who blames women. The guy with ten failed businesses who insists he has a great brain.
Because ADHD isn’t supposed to care (listen) to the fact you don’t listen to THEM. Think about it, they’d hardly notice!
But Cluster Bs care, that’s their supply. That’s their validation. That’s what they leech from.
