Scott:

SSC Survey Results: ADHD And Rejection Sensitivity by Scott Alexander – Scott presents and critiques an alternate theory of ADHD. As part of his critique Scott presents some data from the SSC survey: “Dr. William Dodson pushes a different conception, where one of the key features of ADHD is ‘rejection-sensitive dysphoria’, ie people with the condition are much less able to tolerate social rejection, and more likely to find it unbearable and organize their lives around avoiding it. He doesn’t deny the attention and focus symptoms; he just thinks that rejection sensitivity needs to be considered a key part of the disorder.”
