For people over the age of 18, checking 6 or more of the above behaviors as a problem "Pretty Much" or "Very Much" of the time could be an indication of adult ADHD or ADD. This checklist should be used only as a basic and preliminary screening.  An accurate diagnosis  involves much more than just scores on this, or any other checklist.  The best way to evaluate these conditions is to consult with a competent professional.
