Acronym form: ADD.
A much-debated psychological disorder characterized by a constant need to switch activities and/or hyperactivity.

Contrary to popular belief, ADD is a real disorder, and there are people who actually benefit from ritalin. Unfortunately, a lot of normal people with short attention spans claim to have ADD in order to attract sympathy. A good way to differentiate someone with ADD: people with ADD can't sit still for long even when they're doing something they like, they constantly fidget with their hands (I mean CONSTANTLY), and they don't go around telling everyone they meet that they have ADD.
Person with short attention span: "Hey, show me some respect! I have ADD, you know!"

Person with ADD: "Sorry, I'm getting kind of bored already. I guess I just have a short attention span."

The story of my life, along with my worse nightmare. And for your information Destron, A.D.D. can't be cure by a good kick in the ass. Before my diagnosis, my parents kicked me in the ass multiple times and it did nothing. Try walking through my shoes for a day and then we can talk about it............

Attention Deficit Disorder, or ADD is a psychological term currently applied to anyone who meets the DSM IV diagnostic criteria for impulsivity, and/or inattention. The diagnostic criteria are subjective and include behavior which might be caused by a wide variety of factors, ranging from brain defects to allergies to giftedness. ADD, as currently defined, is a highly subjective description, not a specific disease.
Thav AKA Andrew is a prime example of ADD.

Attention Deficit Disorder is bullshit and anyone that "has it" should be shot. {T}he real reason ADD exists is because executives at pharmaceutical companies need to make their Lexus payments.
