Time blindness is one of the executive dysfunctions. Time blindness is when it’s tough to grasp the passing of time. It usually means you under- or overestimate the time a project will take. Time blindness makes it tricky to manage schedules, deadlines, and planning. It can lead to procrastination, forgetfulness, and feeling overwhelmed or rushed.
Examples: “I’ll need 5 minutes to get ready” and then it takes you 45 minutes, or, in reverse, procrastinating on a task thinking you’ll need hours to finish it, and when you get to do it, you’re done in 10 minutes.« Back to the Glossary
