Becoming completely consumed by a task. Sometimes this is a wonderful feeling, and allows a person to put out their best work. Many times hyper focus is compared to the feeling one has while on heavy stimulants, such as Speed or Cocaine.

Such focus also can be dangerous due to the fact that when one is so consumed, they let all else go, and can seem almost maniacal in pursuit of their goals.

Hyper Focus of this sort has been attributed to ADD and ADHD by many psychiatrists and psychologists.
