Does anyone else agree that Bill Gates has aspergers disorder, aka geek syndrome? I read that he was not a normal child growing up. Aspergers has symptoms where someone becomes deeply interested in something, and odd social interactions etc . A person with asperger appear and are usually normal and range from high functioning to lower functioning. Bill Gates does have sightly odd gestures (way he uses his hands when talking) and talks slightly monotone as well. Gates does also lack some emotion while talking . I even think Dr. House on House MD has it. It said in articles, people with the disorder appear rude, egoistic and cold. Bill Gates is extremely, extremely smart and he is obviously in the high functioning range of the syndrome! I have read articles that say Bill Gates does has it. People with aspergers pick up social skills later on, marry and have children like Gates has. I think if Bill Gates officially does have the syndrome, it has undoubtedly blessed him with super intelligence leading to the creation of Windows!

And that makes a difference to what Bill Gates has accomplished so far or is working to accomplish today?

I do not care anymore about putting people into boxes based on artificial criterias: he is Bill Gates and that is largely good enough for me.

I love how in our modern-day society, if someone comes across as being more intelligent than usual people start looking for "the disease." There are too many labels these days, once upon a time being clever was just called that.

Really, I am not putting anyone down and not labeling him. He fits all the symptoms of the syndrome, and he's is super intelligent. It is a good thing that if he officially does have it, and not a bad thing. I really dislike how people turn something good into something bad. There are numerous credible articles that say that say he possibly has it.

It's useless to know if anyone has asper-what syndrome, or ADHD, or whatever. People with "normal" behavior are usually mediocre on most tasks, so why bother if he is happy and successful?
Psychiatry has names for *EVERYTHING*, even Creationism has a name, but those names don't make it anything more important than what they actually are. Some things have names and what they really are is... nothing.

Please explain to me how this is rediculous? I have brought up many good points and there are numerous credible articles about Bill Gates having this disorder. It is sad people cant be nice and agree ever and have to bash others for something! It appears lot of people on this forum are not very thoughtful and never having anything intelligent to add ever!

I wonder why this is a disorder? Because he is not like the 99% with low IQs and lack of self-control? He is calm and monotone. Those are his personal characteristics. Why should that be a disorder? He's not a psychopath... Now THAT is an incurable disorder.

People with Aspergers are not all psychopaths, and all do not have low IQs and low self esteem! You should do some research before saying something so absurd like that! Talk about having intelligence, you clearly do not!

There's nothing intelligent to be said about this. What's ridiculous (note the correct spelling) is even for a second believing it's logical to proxy-diagnose someone with some disorder. A more pressing question is why do you feel the need to do diagnose Bill Gates by proxy? It's disrespectful and pointless.

Explain to me how it is disrespectful??? Like I said previously, there are many CREDIBLE ARTICLEs on the internet that claim he has it.

+Xenosion, I see you are wrongly stereotyping persons with Aspergers because of that shooting. You having been been reading many misleading and inaccurate articles. All people with Aspergers widely differ from each other, not everyone is the same! Adam Lanza had very serious issues. Id hate to hear what you think about Schizophrenics too!
