As someone that is recently diagnosed with ADHD, I know I appear lazy (and sometimes am), I am certainly poor at details (mostly once the project stops being interesting) and hard to get along with. I know these things about myself and so do a lot of high-functioning neurodivergent people.

People that reflexively say how wonderful they are seem to be the motional equivalent of Dunning-Kruger (to unselfaware to be aware of their failings).
