With all due respect to the other folks who have responded, it is possible that this is not related to ADHD or ADD. If you don’t have other symptoms, it is possible that you are simply a person who needs to see all the details before they can get the picture. As someone else has said, to people in this category, the world is like a paint-by-numbers scene. They don’t see the picture until everything is colored in. I learned about this through using the DISC temperament analysis. (You can Google it) These folks are represented by the “C” in DISC. It stands for conscientious.
