The answer is: people with ADHD are the leftover hunters, those whose ancestors evolved and matured thousands of years in the past in hunting societies. The evolution from the Hunter to the Farmer can be considered an evolution in consciousness as the immigration slowly moved west and the successful Farmer learned to focus on the details of farming, details that the Hunter would have considered boring. It was also stated that the lack of "hyperfocus" should not be the only dichotomy of "farmers versus hunter-gatherers" that was identified in Hartmann's theory. Through his affliiation with German Salem International organization and with that group he helped start international relief programs in Uganda, Colombia, Russia, Israel, India, Australia, and several other countries between 1979 and today. With our structured public schools, office workplaces, and factories those who inherit a surplus of “hunter skills” are often left frustrated in a world that doesn’t understand or support them.

Thom Hartmann is the host of the internationally syndicated talkshow The Thom Hartmann Program and the TV show The Big Picture on the Free Speech TV network. It really seems to lose its coherence to the evolutionary argument and lets rampant capitalism take over.In this step-by-step guide, Thom Hartmann reveals how Hunters make excellent entrepreneurs, sharing ADHD success stories from Fortune 500 CEOs, inventors, small business owners, and his own hands-on experience in launching new business. A wounded boar, or elephant, or bear, can kill you--and many a Hunter has been killed by his would-be prey. Or were those inattentive husbands distracted from their tools by daydreams of a scrumptious dinner made with herbs from the hillside?

Genetic variants (such as the DRD4 7R allele, as well as others on DRD4 and DRD2) conferring susceptibility to ADHD are very frequent—implying that the trait had provided selective advantage in the past. I recognize that some of what we consider a mental illness may be elevated to special prominence as a valued personal trait in other cultures, e. As hunters, they would have been constantly scanning their environment, looking for food or threats (distractibility); theyd have to act without hesitation (impulsivity); and theyd have to love the high-stimulation and risk-filled environment of the hunting field. I agree that those with hyperactivity and high energy would be the hunters, but what about those of us with inattentive ADHD?When going off Ritalin the natural production of dopamine may stay diminished thus a possible cause of Parkinson’s Disease. The heightened sense of one's environment and constant re-prioritizing of tasks based on the ever changing situation are skills that would have kept a hunter safe. Furthermore, a recent 2020 study found that ADHD allele frequency has been decreasing for up to 35,000 years, indicating negative selection.

for instance, if adhd is as useful as she proclaims then their would be a minimalistic need to self medicate for it to semi adapt in a farmer world of delay gratification. At many moments, I was brought to tears experiencing that feeling of validation, one I have never felt before; as well as a somewhat greater sense of strength to pushback against a world effectively gaslighting me into believing something is terribly wrong with me, and hopefully find a place within this “farmers world”. He reveals how some of the world's most successful people can be labeled as ADHD hunters and offers concrete non-drug methods and practices to help hunters--and their parents, teachers, and managers--embrace their differences, nurture creativity, and find success in school, at work, and at home.

These conclusions, however, are still compatible with the theory: "Overall, our results are compatible with the mismatch theory for ADHD but suggest a much older time frame for the evolution of ADHD-associated alleles compared to previous hypotheses. Another characteristic of a good Hunter is the ability to totally focus on the moment, abandoning all consideration of any other time or place. The current understanding of ADHD not necessarily meaning you're bouncing off the walls but that your brain might be the hyperactive part, is so relatable for me.
