Quirk Theory: Latebloomers & Social Misfits Rule

There is life after school (or why people who learn to like their own company often thrive).

From the Daily Mail: "Psychologist Dr Linda Papadopoulos: ‘Being the outsider at school can be a positive thing. Most successful people aren’t followers, but free-thinking individuals who don’t worry too much about the approval of others or being seen as part of a group.’

In our ever conformist, celebrity-worshipping society, the innovation, courage and differences offered by the geeky sides of our personalities are vital to our culture and progress."

In an earlier era, those with ADHD were simply considered a little "different" -- now that we are ghettoized, and when you realize that we are the ones from whom true innovation springs, should this surprise anyone????
