Intuition. I know I have it and it serves me reasonably well. What is it though? These two definitions are objective.

1. The act or faculty of knowing or sensing without the use of rational processes; immediate cognition. Synonyms:reason
2. Knowledge gained by the use of this faculty; a perceptive insight.(1)

In everyday lingo it’s a gut feeling that we get when we are caught in some sort of pickle. If you have ADD or ADHD then this is probably one of your traits along with creativity, sensitivity, and intelligence. Where we lack in attention and impulse control, these traits will hopefully even the scale for us in this non-ADD friendly world of detail we live in. My intuitive conclusion is there is reasonable cause to think it will even out in the end.
