ADHD people, if they find themselves in something, are purely internally motivated. They don’t do research to get degrees, prestige and what not, but plainly because of curiosity and love for the subject. And they are the finest! On the bus ride back home, someone dared me to take my shirt off and lean out the window of the bus. I thought that I could do much better than that. Soon, I was speeding down the highway, waving my shirt in the air above me, yelling at other cars—all while laughing hysterically. Everyone else in the bus was filming excitedly and they thought it was hilarious too.
I wouldn’t say that ADHD will “affect” how you drive, but they way you drive will probably reflect your ADHD. From other answers, it sounds like the way driving reflects ADHD varies by driver.Personally, I mostly drive in Boston, and Boston driving is challenging enough to keep me totally engaged. I’m not a perfect driver, but distractability is not a problem for me in the city. On the highway, though, I get sleepy and bored quickly, and I am strongly driven to multitask. I end up making a lot of phone calls on long drives.
