No. It will read : Falsely low. This is why with the americans with disabilities act, psychiatrists are able to request that students be given more time to take tests then there fellow classmates. Also, taking the test in a non-distracting environment would be essential for an accurate reading. One of the problems however is that the test itself is designed to be completed within a certain period of time so giving you the same amount of time will give a falsely low reading, but giving you more timewill mean that it is being scored essentially outside of the guidelines for scoring and could yield a falsely high reading.Best wishes. ...Read more
Adhd, anxiety disorder and mood imbalance. My psychiatrist said i was gifted although I have a relatively low IQ on test. Can you make sense of this ?
Maybe: Although obviously figuring out a person based on a short question is not possible. But there is no reason that all of this could not be true of you.

The distraction of adhd causes you to perform poorly on common indicators of intelligence. "perform" is key. Your actual intelligence is not changed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is there a specific way for testing adults with adhd? I know some doctors, psychologists, and psychiatristsdon't take insurance for tests that involve extensive work ups. What's the basic test and what could people avoid so they save money?
Neuropsych testing: Since there is no one test that is always sensitive, it can be misleading to see claims that a specific test can or cannot rule out adhd. Carefull history, current and retrospective inventories of symptoms and combinations and patterns on neuropsychological tesing is your best bet if you want to be certain about a diagnosis that is presumed lifelong and has lots of possible comorbid problems. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
