Q: Can I have ADHD but appear not to from the viewpoint of others?

A: This can be possible. Generally, it would be if you have mild ADHD and have put in effort over time to manage some of your behaviours. Perceptions of ADHD vary in some segments of society or with respect to activities (e.g. high risk sports or activities) such that your ADHD behaviours are not seen as(or are not) distinct from other neuro-typical persons engaging in the same behaviour.
