I have the same experiences with gatherings and words to songs. I enjoy the liveliness of a group and can occasionally focus enough -with effort- to respond to an individual; usually i just switch gears to quiet following with more than 3 people talking together. And even then I forget much of what I heard because it was so rapid paced. As for lyrics to songs, I have always been almost completely unable to distinguish the words, unless there’s stark contrast between singer and background. I could never understand how others could hear words so easily and never linked it ADHD. But it makes sense. Thanks!
