A.D.D. & IT

Do you need to have A.D.D. to be in IT?  Just a thought.

Think about it! IT people have to put out fires quick and at all hours of the day. We have to fix all kinds of things at a very rapid pace. We don’t just sip water, we have to drink water from a fire hose. We swim with the sharks.

The IT field moves a such as rapid pace, we need to be able to focus on the current item while it is hot. Usually just a short time, then another, newer, shiny item will become a hotter priority to gain our focus.  This type of environment can frustrate many people that want to be methodical and investigate everything.  I would think those with A.D.D. could function well in an environment like this. IT offers an environment that has short focus times and many items to gain our attention. It sounds like a perfect fit.
