Actually, there is a genetic component to attention deficit.

What's weird is how attention deficit seems to be paired with an
ability to hyperfocus. If properly directed (which can be difficult --
the attention-deficit-afflicted don't hav that much control over it)
it's what enables someone to focus on tracking down a bug for hours if
necessary, forgetting all else.

Attention deficit is a rather paradoxical syndrome.
