Are most people with ADHD not jealous? Do people with ADHD get jealous? I don't at all, but the majority get jealous and it scares me... I think the good thing about ADHD is that you don't get jealous of people. I don't know if it's jealousy. I don't know if it's jealousy or not, but I do envy other people. But at the same time, I feel terrible about myself. I don't have negative feelings for other people, so I don't think it's jealousy. >> I have feelings of envy and admiration, but not jealousy. I'm more focused on disgust and myself than jealousy. I'm constantly self-reflecting. >> I don't think it's a good thing that you're not jealous, it's just that you're not that competitive. People with ADHD can be jealous, too. I'm warning you against it because I hate myself for being jealous all the time, but every woman has it. Even men have it. >> >>Every woman has it. I'm a woman, but no. >> I'm a woman too, but I don't have it. >> Come to think of it, envying others is normal and common, but wanting to drag them down with envy... I don't envy them. On the contrary, I admire them. I despise myself before I get jealous. I am convinced that "I am less understanding than everyone else, I am more obtuse than everyone else, I can't possibly excel in anything in particular". >> Another bad habit of the sleazebag... As for jealousy, it's a personality issue, and has nothing to do with ADHD. Some people with ADHD do it, some don't, and some don't. As I have said many times before, don't confuse personality issues with ADHD issues. We need to change our habit of easily taking surveys and trying to make strange generalizations. When I was a child, I didn't feel frustrated, or understand, that I was inferior to others. Thanks to my parents who literally and persistently told me every day that I should feel regret. I began to feel regret to an uncommonly excessive degree, and my personality was destroyed. Not only was there no need to compete, but I began to feel frustrated about things that had nothing to do with me at all. I started arguing with the teacher and interfered with the progress of the class. I would argue with the teacher and interfere with the progress of the class, and if the teacher didn't know something from a dictionary, I would feel superior to him. The teachers shunned me and I lost all my friends because of it. If you talk to him, he'll always start competing with you for something, and you don't want that. I don't think ADHD is something that you should feel frustrated about if it's a natural part of your upbringing, and I think that's normal. I'm sure you're a person who grew up straight, with parents who were reasonably understanding. I understand that I'm an anomaly, even if I don't like it. Well, I'm not jealous, or possessive in a relationship. I know one of the ADHD traits is "not being attached to certain people" and "not being good with constraints," so maybe that's why. (This may not be the case for those who have AS as well.) So no matter how much I love someone I'm in a relationship with, I'm always like, "Look at me! I'm the only one you love!" I'm not good at being restrained. I'm not good at being constrained, so when someone treats me like "mine," I get cold feet. Most women are happy when their boyfriends say this to them, right? Also, the emotion of being angry that "another woman took my boyfriend. I don't understand those subtleties of the heart. So, wow, personality has nothing to do with ADHD, so don't pull that. I was once told by a doctor that ADHD is like a personality (i.e. W can't be cured)... Isn't that just putting it in plain -sounding terms? I have ADHD, and I have almost no feelings of jealousy. The ADHD-ish people I know get jealous easily. >> Isn't that better than "any woman"? The people quoted there are just describing how they are. I'm not trying to summarize anything. They are not trying to summarize anything. I think there are a lot of cases where people are brought up with a sense of inferiority to themselves from an early age, so they can't stand on the soil of jealousy. I think that's the case in many cases.
