Attention Deficit Disorder – Hyperactive Impulsive Type

Individuals with predominantly hyperactive ADHD exhibit behaviors characterized by being “as if driven by a motor,” accompanied by limited impulse control. These individuals frequently engage in excessive movement, squirming, talking, and fidgeting, even in situations where it is deemed inappropriate. They demonstrate impulsivity, frequently interrupt others, and often display impatience. Maintaining stillness is a significant challenge for them.

Symptoms of Hyperactivity

  • Fidget and squirm while seated
  • Leave their seats in situations when staying seated is expected, such as in the classroom, a meeting or the office (multiple trips to the bathroom, snack room and water station)
  • Run or climb at inappropriate times (classroom) or in teens/adults, often feel restless
  • Be unable to play or engage in hobbies quietly (putting puzzles together, building legos)
  • Be constantly moving or on the go, acting as if “driven by a motor”
  • Talk excessively and sometimes repetitively
  • Answer questions before they are fully asked, finish other people’s sentences, or speaking “out of turn” or blurting out answers in class.
  • Have difficulty waiting for their turn
  • Interrupt or intrude on others, for example in conversations, games, or activities
