There is an issue with the idea that the Minnesota Twins Studies shows that ADHD has a hereditary component. Genetics might orient someone towards individualism or group orientation, or introversion and extroversion. In cultures like the USA or Japan where different orientations experience more mental dissonance, it would lead to distress for different genetic groups. A simple way to study this would be to do Meyers-Briggs surveys with the people who have a highly validated diagnosis of ADHD in these cultures. The French treat ADHD more structurally, where they say that family cohesion, belonging, structure are more of the problem when a person shows anxiety that leads to attention problems. Attention and anxiety are now know to operate with the same resources, and there is lower, middle, and upper brain anxiety and attention problems. Organic brain changes- too – are dynamically set up in the family and society.
