It probably couldn't. I'm ADHD as well, although I have a somewhat odd form of it (I was diagnosed at age 6, but my parents opted not to tell me until recently), and the current notion seems to be that I am TeSi. I'm guessing there probably isn't much of a correlation or if there is than our Te is very different than the MBTI variety. I would be interested in seeing if anything comes up though and will certainly be staying tuned.
Sorry but that's not it for me at all. It's more that my mind hones in on the wrong systems, some of which exist only in my head, and can't readjust its focus to the real world. My mind doesn't so much remove objects as it does put something else in its place and tell me that my daydream is more important than the index cards I am supposed to be memorizing or that my own proof is more interesting than listening to a professor lecture or that finishing my book is worth being two hours late. I am a quick thinker, but am not convinced that is a Te only trait. Thank you for your opinion though and I may be interpreting this completely wrong, as it's hard to objectively look inside my own head.

Actually I think that's exactly what he was getting at. Because of ADHD our perception function never completes and as such our judging function cannot do its job. It would make sense, it's as if my Ni function is continually looking for new systems/challenges and never allows Te to actually realize it in the open.
@a: Haha. I never think lectures are useful. Being in lectures is always wasted time for me. So my solution is going to lecture, put the earphone on, turn on "rainy mood", turn on recorder then study other things . about "head-in-the-cloud" I have no idea, maybe you like this one :
kaleshnikov: My way to deal with my attention is that before working on smts, I write the name of that project 200 times on a paper. It helps a little bit.
Dario Nardi actually links ADHD with extroverted perceiver types, more with Extroverted Intuitive Perceivers (ENFP/ENTP) but also with Extrovert Sensation Perceivers (ESFP/ESTP).
It's interesting and odd to hear it doesn't correlate with your types.
Since ADHD is about dopamine regulation in the prefrontal cortex, about sustained goal-directed attention and executive function it is associated with Perceiver types (since they use less of executive function). Executive function being located on the frontal lobe (front left of Nardis brain maps but this is actually not scientifically valid - executive function are the entire frontal lobe). Executive function = Te and Fe using Nardis methodology.
CognitiveType should be correlated to Dario Nardis methodology at his 'best-fit-type', have you done any research regarding how your visual reading method correlates with Dario Nardis self-reporting test at keys2cognition?
