Autism has been a big talk relatively recently. Children with this disease do not strive for communication, they live in their own world and are only interested in certain things. Despite the illness, many matured autists manage to achieve serious success in life and become an idol for millions of people.
1. American actor Dan Aykroyd, star of the film "Ghostbusters", says that only thanks to the diagnosis he played so brightly in the film. By the start of filming, he was literally obsessed with ghosts and the work of law enforcement agencies, which fit perfectly into the image of his hero.
2. Bill Gates as a teenager read Leonardo da Vinci's manuscripts without interruption and was not at all interested in sports or communication with peers. Already at the age of 12, Bill realized that the future belongs not to mechanisms, but to programs. Today, Gates is one of the richest people in the world.
3. Director Stanley Kubrick suffered from Asperger's Syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder. Kubrick did not know how to sympathize and empathize, so working with him was a torment for many artists. Nevertheless, the director won an Oscar and is considered one of the most influential filmmakers of the last century.
