ADD, The New Intelligence

For centuries, people have tried to define intelligence, to put it in a box, and then contrast all other forms of human expression against it. 

I can't help but wonder if ADHD & ADD are instead expressions of undefined intelligence, yet to be explored, understood, analyzed, reanalyzed, forgotten for a few hundred years, revived in an obscure thesis, only to be published in a widely spread periodical that captures the public's imagination, garnering new interest and speculation, reevaluated based off of new medical findings and ultimately deemed, following a peer review, an example of another form of intelligence, an intelligence "possibly closer to the quantum level at which the entire known universe operates" and thus, the new measure of true, innate intelligence. 

I wonder...
