A Suspected ADHD turtle
The turtle was too impulsive to join the race with the hare

ADHD people tend to make impulsive decisions
without reassessing the reality carefully.

During the race, it was obvious that
the turtle was very far behind, but he continued with
all his effort. Did he know how far behind he
was, or he actually was oblivious about the
reality and just kept on doing what he had
already started?

ADHD people have attention adjustment problem.
Once they have started doing something with
intense attention, they cannot switch off their
attention and would hyperfocus and continue
doing it.

For example, some people work hard with good intention to continue with their failing business until they go bankruptcy.
