It is understood what daydreaming and attention deficit syndrome indicate 10:43

Daydreaming, a “tendency to daydream,” an inability to concentrate, and a general “lethargy” may be signs of a cognitive dissociation syndrome that is distinct from ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). About this post Talk It has been said psychologist Sofia Barbosa Boukas, lecturer at Brunel University (London).

The expert explained that cognitive dissociation syndrome (CDS) was first identified by psychologists in the 1960s and 1970s when they noticed that some people had difficulty focusing, reacting quickly and thinking clearly. Unlike people with ADHD, who tend to switch their attention frequently, people with CDS have a generally reduced ability to focus.

CDS is also characterized by a slower data processing speed. This means that a person needs more time to perceive, comprehend, and respond correctly to information. For example, in school, a student with this type of thinking may take longer to answer questions or complete assignments. This is not due to reduced intelligence or a lack of willingness to put in the effort, but rather because the brain of a person with CDS processes things more slowly.

The psychologist noted that the causes of the syndrome may be associated with genetic and environmental factors. To correct behavior, patients are usually prescribed cognitive behavioral psychotherapy and instructed to maintain a stable daily routine (quality sleep, regular exercise).

Some researchers are testing the effectiveness of stimulant medications similar to those used for ADHD, but evidence of their effectiveness in treating CDS is insufficient.
