Description

However, there are opinions presented that give me the feeling the author is biased against drug solutions. In some ways this child is acting like a Hunter, hunting for a “yes” with an awareness of everything that is in his environment, yet in today’s world he would be considered a problem. Most of our modern world is tailored to this Farmer personality, from 9-to-5 jobs to the structure of public schools, leaving ADHD Hunters feeling like unsuccessful outcasts.

Wright posits that all of human behavior is based on a single motivation---will this behavior continue my gene pool. With our structured public schools, office workplaces, and factories those who inherit a surplus of “hunter skills” are often left frustrated in a world that doesn’t understand or support them. Having been trained to look at the positive aspects of ADHD by homeschool author Carol Barnier, I enjoyed this book for the most part and found its approach helpful.Tolerance for ambiguity, the willingness to stick with the goal in spite of obstacles, and an openness that allows the person to new ways to define the problem are important elements for creativity. However, the Hunter skill set offers many opportunities for success in today's Farmer society-if you learn how to embrace your ADHD traits instead of fighting against them. Wish it had more in-text references, perhaps it's the academic in me, but at times it's hard to tell what's theory and what's been proven. The traits associated with ADHD (hyperfocus, multi-tasking, high levels of energy, out-of-the-box thinking) helped me thrive as an entrepreneur. Some believe that learning is fastest and best when there is a constant shift between focused and an open state of consciousness.

The Epilogue to the book examines the evolution and migration over the last 10,000 years of the hunter-gatherer from what is now the Near East in becoming the agriculturists of the Western World. In this groundbreaking book, Thom Hartmann makes a unique contribution to our understanding of ADHD. During the Covid isolation she wrote a book about her life with inattentive ADHD which should be published by the end of this year. I would not, however, give it to a teen with ADD or ADHD, especially if that teen requires short-term or long-term medication to assist with attention and/or the development of executive skills. With the prevalence of Ritalin and other similar drugs, Chapter 16 examines the role of these drugs in treating ADHD.

With our structured public schools, office workplaces, and factories those who inherit a surplus of "hunter skills" are often left frustrated in a world that doesn't understand or support them.

The following year she created the non-profit organization, ADD Resources, with a mission to educate adults and helping professionals about ADHD in adults. It really seems to lose its coherence to the evolutionary argument and lets rampant capitalism take over. I am 100% behind the author's motivations for writing this and other books on the topic, and he provides compelling evidence for his arguments, backed up by studies. He reveals how some of the world’s most successful people can be labeled as ADHD hunters and offers concrete non-drug methods and practices to help hunters--and their parents, teachers, and managers--embrace their differences, nurture creativity, and find success in school, at work, and at home.

Again what seems most effective is changing the style of teaching to the style of the Hunter, a style that encourages creativity. I like that Hartmann draws on biology, genetics, physiology, neuroscience and evolutionary psychology to support his assertions, and found a lot of information that was helpful in understanding, accepting, and developing this aspect of my personality. The term itself, “Attention Deficit” doesn’t even work because it’s not so much a lack of attention as a different way of allocating attention. Reading/listening to this as a 42yr old in the process of being diagnosed with ADHD was mind blowing. Genetic variants (such as the DRD4 7R allele, as well as others on DRD4 and DRD2) conferring susceptibility to ADHD are very frequent—implying that the trait had provided selective advantage in the past.

With our structured public schools, office workplaces, and factories those who inherit a surplus of ';hunter skills' are often left frustrated in a world that doesn't understand or support them.While the Farmer’s consciousness is very task focused, the Hunter’s consciousness may be considered open or diffused. The rest of us who can plan out our lives and sit behind desks are the descendants of the humans who started farming. The hunters and farmers theory of ADHD children is the idea that they are the "hunters" who are able to take in continuous stimuli and react quickly to changing circumstances. There was no longer a tribal culture and hunters and their spouses lost their esteemed place in life’s hierarchy. He reveals how some of the world’s most successful people can be labeled as ADHD hunters and offers concrete non-drug methods and practices to help hunters—and their parents, teachers, and managers—embrace their differences, nurture creativity, and find success in school, at work, and at home.
