Looking Beyond Black and White Thinking

Black and white thinking, also known as dichotomous thinking, is a cognitive distortion that involves viewing the world in extremes – things are either right or wrong, good or bad, with no room for shades of gray. This type of thinking can have a profound impact on individuals with ADHD. It can contribute to feelings of self-doubt, perfectionism, and an all-or-nothing approach to tasks and goals. Black-and-white thinking can lead to a cycle of frustration and disappointment when expectations are not met, or mistakes are made.
