Why do I change interests every 2 weeks or so?

About every 2 weeks, the current activity I'm interested in takes a turn.

For example. One week, I was interested in medicine, reading medical textbooks from harvard, and essentially learning all I could without taking any classes, or going to any school for it. Another week, I would be interested in card counting, taking courses from 'The russian' from the MIT blackjack team. Another, learning different chemical formulaes to create explosives, or hallucinogens. It seems that I keep changing interests, learning as much as I can in that field, then switching to another.

My question though, is why? Friends suggested ADHD, but I don't beleive in that disorder, and I don't follow any of the symptoms. Though my behaviour does seem impulsive, I can't quite pin it to any disorder. At least none jump to mind.

Can anyone share any insight into this?

**Side note. Though I switch interests, a few have remained constant. I have a deep interest with serial killers, computer technology, and philosophy.

At least you have a broad learning range. Better than only knowing one thing.

I don't know if it's disorder related. I'm currently being seen by a team of specialists for that reason and many others. I also skip interests very fast. I'm reading a lot on all kinds of subjects but nothing seems to interest me for more than a couple of weeks.

Next to that I have a hard time acomplishing things. I seem to get nothing done properly. I don't know if these two are related but it feels that way.

I remember the 'Parkour' stage. Man that was great.

P.S: Our computer hacking days aren't over yet! I can see Cain & Abel making a turn for the best seeing Dr.Carpenter is on leave.

Are you serious!? I have the exact same problem and I was also wondering if there was something wrong with me. Everyone around me seems to have something they are passionate about and they have been passionate about that subject since they were kids but me, I am into something for maybe a couple of months and then I get bored wth it and start looking for something else.

It drives me nuts because I want a consistant hobby, something I can specialize in and share with other people but I just can't seem to stick to anything!
