This matrix is an expansion of the spectrum
presented in SSB1, the bell of attention differences.
In this exhibit we see the three types of AD further
subdivided into degrees of intensity, based on levels of "arousal" or
exciteability, and arranged in columns and rows. Across the top we see increasing degrees
of focus, while down the side we see the effects of increasing degrees of arousal.
Whimsical pictures and names were attached to each
profile to give a quick sense of typical character traits. Click- through descriptions
with more detail on each subtype will be added soon.
