You are exactly right. ADHD diagnosis concerns itself with those behaviors that a behavioral rater has deemed "inappropriate" within the social context that such behaviors are so observed, either in the formal or informal sense. In a couselor or doctors office, one is asked questions that are rather pointed in their social ramifications, usually with impulse control and organization.
Moreover, the relaxing of the diagnostic criteria for AD(H)D, and concomitantly, that of diagnostic creep, have resulted in a 4000 per cent increase in those children (adults?) diagnosed with ADD and ADHD, since the mid-1970s! In essence, children are more likely to be diagnosed in school. Adults, especially those individuals who were labeled in childhood, usually seek out a diagnosis when confronted with those cares and concerns of a "grown-up world". The latter is consistent with a form of psychiatric (moral) absolution of one's perceived failure, at some level, to flourish in one's environment.
