What In The World Is Brainstyle?

The simple explanation, ala, Lynn Weiss, Pioneer ADD/ADHD lady who loves to make up her own definitions for things so I can convey the way in which I experience things is made up of three parts:

  1. “It’s the design of the part of our brain that takes in everything we sense—see, hear, taste, smell or feel around us—that enables us to figure out what experiences we’re having.” (Oh, and by the way, I also think senses include “Intuition.” but not everyone is comfortable with that word, so take it or leave it.
  2. “It’s the design of the part of our brain that associates whatever we perceived to
    have taken in with all the other stuff that already been taken in at an earlier time.”
  3. It is the design of the part of our brain that expresses the mixture of what we’ve
    taken in, mixed with past content and then express in our special form.

That’s it!

But, realize that not everyone’s normal brain is made in the same way. There is no right or wrong way to experience these three steps of the process. The functions are served, but the creative process is simply another reflection of diversity: BrainStyle Diversity.

As you learn to recognize what feels comfortable for you and what you need from your environment to receive and understand information that you desire or need, getting your needs met will require less energy and will become easier for you and those around you.

Live from your True Self,

    Good to hear from you.
    Generally, I have not partiuclarly differentiated between Mother and ADD daughter (age of daughter?) or adult females with ADD. One of my book, “Give your ADD Teen a Chance is still available through Amazon.com, books section. It specifically speaks to the issue of family relationships between parents and young adults.”
    As for females versus males, I would suggest that you utilize my latest book (due in bookstores Aug 3). “Embracing A.D.D., A Healing Perspective.” It speaks to the needs of all ages in terms what is needed to work to the level of one’s best mental health, which is necessary before the addition of adjusting for living with an ADD BrainStyle.

    At this time, a potential mentorship program in which many more details of what the pending difficulties seem to be is not available on line. Perhpas you can spend time simply defining specific details of one or two issues thatyou face and send it along and let’s see if someone has an idea of how they handled the situation. Eventually I hope to establish an “OnLine Mentorship Program,” but it is not afvailable at this time.

    Best to you, Nichole,

    Ok, Well I am a 30 yr. old single mother who has recently moved back in with my parents. I have a 5 yr old boy ” who is absolutely amazing” and delt with a relationship involving substance abuse. I’m struggling with my immediate family members, clashing personality, learning styles, or disorders whatever the case maybe, I’m having trouble setting my feet on the ground, I’m trying to live an appropriate life with the ability to set goals and self control, assertiveness, self reliance ex…. I can’t seem to find who I am. And living under my parents roof I’m a teenager all over again I know I’ve made mistakes, had poor judgement, but I’m needing the feeling that my needs will be meet, in regards to emotional support empathy, compation, understanding willingness to cooperate no criticism, judgement, or control “most important ” my mother is a vary highly structured person, and isn’t very affectionate to say the least. I on the other hand am a sensitive, loving, empathetic person to the point I could probably be takin advantage of. Just a little Lost in life.
