This appears particularly true of the “Predominantly Inattentive” (PI) subtype, which is characterized by symptoms of distractibility, failure to complete work, forgetfulness, and disorganization.

People with the predominantly inattentive ADHD — many of them women diagnosed later in life — experience the same problems paying attention that are typical of ADHD, but they face fewer of the difficulties related to impulse control seen in the Combined subtype.Because inattentive children exhibit fewer behavior-management problems, PI is not always recognized and diagnosed in childhood, and this under-recognition can persist into adulthood.
