Einstein mystery, between genius and autism
Psychiatrists refer to many important figures in science, politics and art to succeed because they develop the disease of autism.
Autism is a condition of a person from birth or at infancy, which makes him unable to form social relationships or normal communication.
As a result the child is isolated from other human beings in the world and get repetitive, obsessive activities and interests. (Baron-Cohen, 1993).
According to Power (1989) characteristics of children with autism is a disorder in six areas:
• social interaction,
• communication (language and speech),
• behavioral, emotional,
• patterns of play,
• sensory and motor disorders
• delayed or abnormal development.
Autism, repetitively stacking or lining up objects a behavior is occasionally associated with individuals with autism. (Wikipedia)
These symptoms began to appear from birth or during childhood, usually before the child was 3 years old. (Wikipedia)
Professor of psychiatry at Trinity College Dublin, Michael Fitzgerald revealed that the characteristics associated with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) have the same creative genius with the supporting elements.
Prof Fitzgerald said Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, George Orwell, HG Wells and Ludwig Wittgenstein as an example of some famous and brilliant individuals show characteristics of ASD, including Asperger syndrome.
Asperger Syndrome (English: Asperger syndrome, Asperger’s syndrome, Asperger’s disorder, Asperger’s or AS) is one of the symptoms of autism in which the sufferer has difficulty in communicating with its environment, thus not well received.
This syndrome was discovered by Hans Asperger in 1944.
Asperger syndrome is distinguished from other autism symptoms seen from the linguistic and cognitive abilities of the sufferers are relatively decreased.
Even with a relatively high IQ or average, this means most people with Asperger’s syndrome can live independently, unlike another autism. Asperger syndrome is also not a mental illness. (Wikipedia).
Not only that, Beethoven, Mozart, Hans Christian Andersen and Immanuel Kant also diagnosed with Asperger’s.
“Psychiatric disorders can also have positive dimensions. I believe autism or Asperger’s genes as well as creativity are essentially the same. ”
Asperger, People with Asperger syndrome display intense interests Often, Such as this boy’s Fascination with molecular structure. (Wikipedia)
“We do not know for certain genes and how much, but we spoke about multiple genes. Each case is unique because every person has the genes involved is different, “said Prof Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald was quoted as saying by the Telegraph also mentions that this gene cause a person to have a high focus, does not fit with the school system and often have difficulty establishing social relationships and eye contact.
They also tend to be paranoid and conflict with others, and have high moral and ethical.
“They were able to survive in a given topic for 20 to 30 years without being distracted by thoughts of others. They can produce something in a time period comparable to the work of three to four people, “says this psychiatrist.
Properties such as the need for domination and control is the key to the success of Charles de Gaulle’s famous with ucapannnya “I am France”, the former U.S. president Thomas Jefferson and Enoch Powell.
Another example, said Fitzgerald, a science fiction writer HG Wells described the psychiatrist as antisocial, controlling, lonely and emotional immaturity.
Prof Fitzgerald expressed his conclusion after comparing the characteristics of about 1600 people are diagnosed with ASD and famous people.
He mentioned that the Austrian philosopher, Ludwig Wittgenstein featuring a variety of people with Asperger’s are able to work in the long term regarding a particular topic, regardless of others’ viewpoints.
Isaac Newton for example, is known to work non-stop for 3 days without a care day and night, and often forget to eat.
Not only that, Einstein himself formulated something in his private room because he was too ‘disruptive’ to get a job at the university.
Prof. book. Fitzferald titled Genius Genes: How Asperger Talents Changed the World was published in late 2010. People with ASD is estimated to reach about 60 to 120 cases per 10 thousand people.
Amanda Batten of the National Autistic Society said, “It is important to avoid labeling a person with autism as a genius or anything, because everyone has individual characteristics and needs of its own strength.”
