I'm not very, apparently...
According to who?
I can be depending on what it is i am doing,if its something i dont like i do tend to put it off,if its something i like or find interesting i get stuck right in.
Too much then not enough at times
I got called a Bohemian a few months ago, I didn't even know what it meant, I'd heard the song Bohemian Rhapsody. But yeah, my discipline is erratic.
BTW I'm not a Bohemian.
In some things very disciplined, in others way too easy going.
I'm diagnosed as having ADHD-PI (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - Predominantly Inattentive). I spent my school years staring out windows, my mind wandering, and came very close to getting fired from a job at one point. I don't think I've ever been "hyperactive" in my life, but apparently I'm stuck with that name as part of my diagnosis. Go figure.
Though it took until age 45 ( ) for anyone to figure this out, I seem to actually be doing better on the medicine I'm taking for the condition, strattera and Adderal XR.
Prior to taking the medicine, I would say I could focus intensely in short bursts, but also seemed to "burn out" after a while. I actually did tolerably well in school overall, but I don't think I've ever done ANYTHING but at the absolute last minute. From book reports in third grade to my final project in graduate school.
I don't know that I would exactly qualify as having Executive Function Disorder as well, but it wouldn't surprise me. I've not read through the entire link yet since I'd rather be reading about the issue in adults than children. But the first article seems to offer some very good definitions anyway. Might be something to look into for someone that is constantly criticized for "lacking discipline," since there does seem to be some sort of biological basis to this.
Not much at all...need to be more...
