ADHD Risk Pronounced in Children with Extreme Personality Traits

A novel study by the Florida State University has thrown light on certain personality traits in children that presage a risk of an attention// deficit hyperactivity disorder or conduct disorder. Children with personalities that show up as aggressiveness, undue mood swings, aloofness, and a constant need for excitement are said to be under high risk.

FSU psychology professors Jeanette Taylor and Chris Schatschneider, FSU doctoral student Kelly Cukrowicz and University of Minnesota Professor William Iacono observed that children with ADHD or conduct disorder were negatively charged up with feelings of tension, a sense of being taken for a ride by others, and also portrayed a likelihood to go after thrill inducing behavior patterns as compared to other children.

Taylor explained that children and adolescents with a combination of the two disorders are highly prone to school failure, criminal activity, substance abuse and depression. She said,"This helps us to understand that personality is part of the bigger picture of these disorders. That could help with initial assessments or lead to unexpected discoveries or potential interventions. We're saying to researchers and clinicians, 'Think about personality when you look at these issues.' "

Undoubtedly, there is a link between personality and the disorders that become apparent, but in-depth research is needed to ascertain whether personality traits arise due to the disorder or vice versa.

The study is published in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry.
