    I was going to say "No" for ADHD but then I decided to take a test for adult women to try and self-diagnose ADHD and well...

    yes this

    You could call this a pilot study and then make everyone retake it when all relevant questions/options have been added! Because SCIENCE :D

    Indeed. I'm in strong support of further sciencing the population here.

    Something that I'm curious about here is polyamory status. It seems like we have a lot of poly people here, but then again, more than two people mentioning that pings as "a lot." If you're looking for things to add to the survey, maybe that one?

    Would you want to know who's in a polyamorous relationship, or who's in/interested in/oriented towards/prefers one?

    (and yeah, it's looking like I'm gonna redo the whole thing, with also the all-important Homestuck question which I can't believe I forgot)

    ... Like an idiot I just filled out the original survey before reading that you're going to remake it >.<

    So, here's the options I'm thinking for poly question:
    -I only do relationships where polyamory is on the table
    -I like the idea of poly stuff but it is not strictly necessary
    -I am open to the idea of a poly relationship in theory
    -No, polyamory does not work for me and I do not want it.
    -Relationships are for other people. No opinion.

    Sorry, phrasing might be weird. I'm sick today and language is not really coming naturally. Is there anything missing from that list that other people would want?

    @liminal I require a link to that test. For Science. Please? =D

    Ooo this is interesting! Hmm. I can't think of anything else to add. I like that you can choose multiple options for the autism question, can we maybe do that for ADHD as well?
    (Basically my 'yes - undiagnosed' answers require a 'not sure' answer as well because brain.)

    Is there any way to see the specific "other" responses people give?

    I can add a 'not sure,' yeah.

    And all of the 'other' responses are listed in the spreadsheet. Idk how to make them be on the main thing.

    here you go!

    I took another more in depth quiz that said I have the inattentive symptoms, but not the hyperactivity symptoms, so an ADHD diagnosis would not be appropriate. I am only skeptical of the diagnosis itself because I have a couple other disorders that would cause ADHD symptoms (so basically a false positive on these diagnostic tests)

    Yep. It seems the school of thought now is that it's all under the ADHD umbrella, with various subtypes. Inattentive type is very much a distinct subset.

    Yeah. It makes sense to combine the disorders, but I really wish they'd done it the other way around. A symptom of ADHD-PI is actually a lack of energy, so it seems very silly to include it in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

    Seriously. My ADHD diagnosis is very appropriate, but I can count on one hand the number of times I've been hyperactive in my entire life, and I'm not exactly young.
