Asperger on Academic Success

“It seems that for success in science or art, a dash of Autism is essential. For  success, the necessary ingredient may be an ability to turn away from the everyday world, from the simply practical, an ability to re-think a subject with orginality so as to create in new untrodden ways, with all abilities canalised into one speciality.”

Hans Asperger 1979
