Perceived by Others

People with low attention control may be perceived as distractible, unfocused, and disorganized. They may have difficulty maintaining their attention on tasks or conversations, which can be frustrating for others who are trying to engage with them. In academic or work settings, they may struggle with completing tasks on time or following through on commitments. However, they may also be seen as creative and open-minded, as their lack of focus allows them to see things from different perspectives. Overall, their low attention control may be seen as a liability in situations where focus and attention to detail are important but their strengths in creativity and flexibility can also be valuable.
