Some have theorized that ADD/ADHD may have an evolutionary advantage because it increases inventiveness and creativity.

Same goes for La Tourette's Syndrome (usually accompanied by the compulsive use of abusive language).

'Breaking out of bounds' (or maybe not being aware of them) can sure count as a source of possibly creative expression.

It can also lead to all sorts of trouble, of course. :)
