Attention deficit disorder / hyperactivity in adults is something beyond the initial diagnostic symptoms of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity, and deficits in executive functioning should also be considered in the semiotics of the disorder. The purpose of this study was to determine the role of deficits in time management, self-motivation, self-control, self-organization / problem-solving and self-regulation of emotions in anticipation of attention deficit / hyperactivity symptoms. For this purpose in a descriptive study of correlational type, 302 undergraduate and graduate students (139 males and 163 females) were selected from available samples. They were evaluated in terms of deficits in executive functioning and attention deficit disorder / hyperactivity symptoms in adults. Stepwise regression analysis indicated that the deficits of self-motivation of executive actions, emotional self-regulation, self-organizing / problem-solving and self-control predicts symptoms of attention deficit / hyperactivity in adults. It seems that deficits in executive functioning should be considered in symptoms of attention deficit disorder / hyperactivity in adults.
