This is a really good question; we always have to remember that everyone’s different, so people don’t always necessarily fit the form. As a whole, males tend to have a lot more of the hyperactivity type symptoms or impulsive symptoms, so they tend to be all over the place: trouble sitting still, trouble fidgeting, doing things like running out into the streets without thinking about the consequences. Sometimes girls do these too, but we see a lot more in the boys than we do the girls.
