Reducing Impulsivity with ADHD

CUSTOM JAVASCRIPT / HTML



Case Study

Alex couldn't help interrupting, whether talking to one person or in a group, he'd blurt out in less than 20 seconds. He felt frustrated with himself, and people got mad at him, hurting his relationships and causing him to lose business deals.
Trying to help him stop it, his therapist suggested, he squeezed his fist, but it only made things worse as he'd forget what he wanted to say and hurt his hand.

But then, he improved one surprising thinking skill that helped him stop interrupting.

Thinking Skills

While you are doing any task, you (without even realizing it!) are using your 28 thinking skills.
When the thinking skills you need to use are strong, doing the task is easy.
If the thinking skill you need to use is weak, doing the task will be a challenge.

The struggle that Alex had, came from a weak thinking skill of holding 2 or more pieces of information at once.

The Source of Interrupting

Holding 2 or more pieces of information is just what it sounds like.
Can your brain hold 2 or more pieces of information at the same time?

In Alex’s case, as soon as he heard something and wanted to respond to what was said, he’d need to say it right away because otherwise, he’d forget it.
Most people thought Alex was simply impulsive, but his weak thinking skill of holding onto many pieces of information at once came out as impulsivity.
As soon as Alex was able to hold onto many pieces of information, his brain wasn’t worried “I might forget what to say once it’s my turn to talk” his brain was able to hold onto all the information and he didn’t feel the urge to interrupt anymore.

Holding 2 or More Pieces of Information at Once

Holding 2 or more pieces of information is a thinking skill you can forever build upon.
Can you hold 2 pieces of information without forgetting them? What about 3, 4, 5, 6 or even 7?

To get better at holding 2 or more pieces of information, you’ll want to give yourself 2 things to do without writing them down. For example, respond to this email and post an IG story. Once you feel super comfortable with doing 2 things without writing them down, give yourself 3 things to do, then 4 etc.

You can then bring the practice into conversations. Can you hold onto your response while the other person is talking? Can you hold onto 2 of your responses while someone is talking? etc.

Your Challenge

Your challenge this week is to give yourself 2 things to do - without writing it down! Once you’re comfortable with 2, make 3 tasks to do and see if you can even go to 4.
