ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is a condition that affects attention and focus. It has a strong genetic component, and if you have a close relative with ADHD, there is a higher probability that you will have it too. However, having a close relative with ADHD does not mean that you are fated to have it, and there are ways to overcome the symptoms of lack of attention and impulsivity. ADHD has nothing to do with intelligence, and being very high functioning doesn't make you more likely to have ADHD. There are ways to enhance your level of concentration and focus, whether or not you have ADHD.
