THINKING ASIDE

a form of a syndetic thinking wherein a person's thoughts adjust suddenly from one subject to another which is insignificantly or just tangentially related to it, and from this side subject to another side subject, and so forth, wherein that person is not capable of cultivating a logical, concise chain of thoughts.

THINKING ASIDE: "Thinking aside is engaged in often, but rarely successfully, by those individuals affected by ADD or ADHD."
