How do you cope with these, be it through drugs(doctor prescribed or not) or non drug approaches?
I have yet to find an AP that really helps with this. Whilst being ok in some respects risperdal has little effect on it.
On the test at http://www.brainfitnesscentersofflorida.com/fitness.html , which I have tried more than a few times, my scores(percentile wise) for executive functioning have been 1-very low, 3-low,9-low average,5-low,4-low,2-low,10-low average,4-low,18-low average,2-low,2-low,12-low average,7-low,10-low average, 5-low,16-low average,5-low,2-very low,14-low average, 4-low.
The best is 18. 18th percentile is about 86 in IQ terms. The lowest is 1 .I is about 65 in IQ terms. Therefore my IQ in terms of executive functioning ranges between 65 and 86.
Averaging the results out to the nearest whole number it’s 7 =78.
Obviously I am not that unintelligent but I wonder how many of us otherwise reasonably intelligent people here have a difficulty with executive functioning, and score much lower for that.
