-ADD or ADHD - usually untreated. Nope Im normal
-Random as hell humor- Not to much Im very laid back and normal
-very intelligent, but the grades don't/didn't show it. generally lack of interest in school- Graduated when I was 16 so nope =(
-good at sports but dislike the rules (might not do school sports purely because of the rulebook for them)
 and a bunch of stuff like that.- Played Baseball for 10 Years and stopped after highschool.
-Really, really, ridiculously good looking. YUP!

There is no reason to have a plan B, cause all it does is distract from plan A

I actually discovered it for the first time on Riply's believe it or not. They had the Yamakasi on an episode.

Robert Ripley is buried less than a mile away from my apartment where I sit right now.  Santa Rosa for the win.  Fun fact: Santa Rosa, CA is also Phillip Marlowe's hometown.

-ADD or ADHD - usually untreated.
Defiantly true, although it has only been speculated by my mom and I, I seem to have the symptoms of ADD, but neither of us believe in treatment

-Random as hell humor
Depends on the situation, lately I have been becoming more serious... I should fix that....

-very intelligent, but the grades don't/didn't show it. generally lack of interest in school
Hell yes, I studied quantum mechanics and string theory when I was taking conventional high school physics. Plus I always loved figuring out how things work on my own time (thus the reason why my grades are all over the place, A & B+ if I'm interested (i.e. physics, psychology, math, etc) mostly B if I'm halfway interested in the class (i.e. history), C if I'm not so much (i.e. English) or if it's a new concept (i.e. calculus))

-good at sports but dislike the rules (might not do school sports purely because of the rulebook for them)
Never really was good at sports, my type of games were always things that push the individual more than the team (part of being an introvert I guess) thus why I do parkour. I do really hate professional/ over played sports though, such as football, I never enjoyed it one bit. My type of games are things like capture the flag, track, etc. Plus I have strong belief that the power of the individual is more valuable than the power of the team.

As for being good looking, my girlfriend says I am so it must be true!

Okay that may sound like a retarded title - I don't just mean stuff like 'oh well we all love running and jumping'.
I mean I've noticed and talked about before a LOT of my free runner friends have all of these in common.

-ADD or ADHD - usually untreated.
-Random as hell humor
-very intelligent, but the grades don't/didn't show it. generally lack of interest in school
-good at sports but dislike the rules (might not do school sports purely because of the rulebook for them)
 and a bunch of stuff like that.

Anything else you guys may have noticed, and do you think maybe finding people with these common traits may be a good way to find potential free running partners?
stuff others notice
-Really, really ridiculously good looking (Cornogg)

i was diagnosed with SEVER add and adhd when i was young
yes i am very very random xD
they say i am very intelligent but i honestly have not passed since the 5th grade even though im in 9th

I dont have add or adhd.
I have very random humor.
I have pretty good grades.
And I dont mind sports rule books:P

There must be something wrong with it :)
Weight training alongside parkour always benefits, it never takes away.

Thanks Kendall ;) <3

I think most of the "ADD/HD" cases you describe aren't untreated, it's just us wanting to explore. Curiosity does not equal a medical disorder.
 

No but it can lead to one.

   "-ADD or ADHD - usually untreated."

Nope: But of course, there was no such thing as ADD or ADHD when I was young. They had a cure for children that couldn't pay attention back then. It was called "the back of your dad's hand." Don't confuse bad parenting with a medical condition, either.

   "-Random as hell humor"

Wrong again: This is a by-product of that "lack of attention" problem. Honestly, all that random humor annoys the hell out of me.

   "-very intelligent, but the grades don't/didn't show it. generally lack of interest in school"

I had subjects I liked, and subjects I didn't, but for the most part, this is somewhat true. However, it was more the fault of the teachers, than anything. If the teacher had a clue and was interesting, I enjoyed it.

   "-good at sports but dislike the rules (might not do school sports purely because of the rulebook for them)"

LOLZ! I absolutely sucked at sports. Hated playing them. Hated watching them. Of course, I was forced to play, and no body ever wanted me on their team. I was always the second to last person picked in gym. (There was actually a guy who was worse than me) The only sport I was remotely good at was dodgeball. I was pretty good at dodging, but when it came time to throw the ball back, yea, it was pitiful.


So, .5 / 4 for me, not a very high ratio.  :P

But of course, I'm old, and throw off the curve...

Defiantly, defiantly put me down as adventurous! That's the whole reason why I started parkour, for the adventure!

Borderline ADHD
Random as Hell Humor
Intelligent but struggle to show it (School is just such a bore)
Good at some sports but they don't interest me enough to encourage practice in it
Artistic (All instruments and all aspects of film making)
Shmexy
And although certain people hate me, when I am around others, I provoke happy reactions
Oh! I'm also narcissistic.
