You can't sit still. You don't like unannounced visitors. You always triple-check if the lights are out. But you also see details that no-one else notices. You're always coming up with surprising solutions. You can focus intensely for hours at a stretch. Usually without realising it, many people lie somewhere on the spectrum of a neurodivergent condition. We often tend to focus on the many downsides of neurodivergent conditions such as AD(H)D, ASD, dyslexia and OCD. This book takes a different approach by looking in depth at the special talents that go hand in hand with these conditions. Whether you already have a diagnosis or simply feel you're somewhere on the neuroatypical spectrum, one thing is certain: once you've identified your unique talents, you'll be able to make more focused choices in your life and work. You'll discover which jobs best showcase your talents, which colleagues complement your personality, and which environments and corporate cultures are right for you.
