Since we have an ADD thread and an IEE thread, I think the time is right for sneakily sneaking in my obsession with schizotypy
Basically, it's a phenotype with altered brain structure. Where the autistic phenotype results in an overproduced, understructured brain, schizotypy results in the opposite. Some of the consequences measured include:
poor motivation, introversion, weakened executive function (impulse control, working memory), too much material being drawn into consciousness (hallucinations, illusions, strange bodily experiences), and a preference for alternative realities (the little brother to psychosis).
I suspect a lot of schizotypes are drawn to IEI as being an imaginative, introverted, easygoing type. As such, I'm curious to hear how IEIs (and ILIs) relate to having difficulties with motivation and focus.
To start with, I don't think sehnsucht and actively envisioned long-range goals constitute "focus". I mean momentary focus, such as maintaining concentration on things. I find myself easily absorbed into things and hemorrhaging time, but when I don't want to do something, I'm very aware of my ever-wandering mind. I find it difficult to push myself to do things as well, or contain my intellectual impulses. I suppose it shows in my ever-expanding writing style.
