Abstract or Description


  • Although some studies have found a positive correlation between ADHD symptoms and self-reported cognitive flow states, other studies do not find such a relationship.
  • ADHD is commonly comorbid with anxiety, which has been found to be negatively correlated with flow states.
  • It is possible that some of the inconsistencies across studies might be explained by level of anxiety.


The purpose of the current study is to explore the relationships between self-reported Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms and cognitive flow states and whether anxiety moderates that relationship.
