Online survey study that investigates mind wandering, education, occupation, and creativity and how they relate to ADHD traits.

A most interesting email hits the inbox from time to time and the winner so far this week is this one…looking forward to getting the link to this study.

“Dear Sandi

My name is Florence Mowlem and I am a PhD student at King’s College London supervised by Professor Philip Asherson, an expert in ADHD. We are conducting and online survey study that investigates mind wandering, education, occupation, and creativity and how they relate to ADHD traits. We are interested in looking at this in the general population (including those with and without ADHD). Anyone over the age of 16 years can take part.

This work follows on from a recent paper that we wrote on mind wandering (Mowlem et al., 2016). We hope this survey will help us learn more about how mind wandering and ADHD traits can lead to differences in our experiences of education, occupation, and creativity. We know that everyone’s mind wanders, but we all do it to a different degree, and so we would like to know more about the impact it has. For some it may be useful and lead to creativity or working in a certain profession. For others it may have a negative effect, perhaps making it difficult to learn at school. Severe mind wandering that just won’t seem to stop and feels uncontrollable could also be associated with disorders such as ADHD.”
