31 Celebrities Who Probably Have Asperger's Syndrome

Asperger syndrome (AS), also known as Asperger's, is a developmental disorder which is a milder autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that is marked by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication. While living a normal and healthy life with Asperger syndrome is quite challenging, the condition hasn’t been able to stop numerous people from achieving great heights in their careers. Some of the most brilliant minds of all time, Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton are believed by modern researchers to have displayed symptoms of Asperger syndrome. Musical great Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and renowned painter Vincent Van Gogh also had this condition. Asperger syndrome causes the patients to display behavior, interests, and activities that are restricted and repetitive. Their social behavior is also severely restricted which makes it extremely difficult for such people to enjoy a normal social life. However, with determination and hard work, people with Asperger's can not only lead a normal life, but can also excel in their professional fields. Alfred Hitchcock, Charles Schulz, Thomas Edison, Mark Twain, and Bill Gates are among the highly successful people who achieved a lot despite suffering from the syndrome.
