Elon Musk opens up on how Asperger's has impacted his life


Elon Musk opened up on Thursday about his experience growing up with Asperger's syndrome, or autism spectrum disorder.

Why it matters: Most adults with "invisible disabilities" such as Asperger’s conceal them professionally to avoid stigmas and potential discrimination, research has found.

  • As the founder of numerous companies, "acknowledging the influence of Asperger's ... given the relatively few known examples of successful entrepreneurs and business leaders with Asperger’s, Musk's may inspire the next generation of young adults with Asperger’s," Amy E. Hurley-Hanson and Cristina M. Giannantonio, workplace neurodiversity researchers and management professors at Chapman University's Argyros School of Business, tell Axios.

Growing up, “the social cues were not intuitive,” Musk said when asked about it on stage at the TED2022 conference in Vancouver, Canada.

  • “I would just tend to take things very literally … but then that turned out to be wrong — simply saying exactly what they mean, there's all sorts of other things that are meant, and took me a while to figure that out,” he recalled.

Flashback: Musk widely revealed having Asperger’s last year when he hosted “Saturday Night Live.”

  • In his opening monologue, Musk said: "To anyone who I’ve offended , I just want to say I reinvented electric cars, and I'm sending people to Mars in a rocket ship. Did you think I was also going to be a chill, normal dude?"

When asked about a potential link between his companies and Asperger’s, Musk said it’s “certainly possible” that it was valuable from a technology standpoint.

  • “I found it rewarding to spend all night programming computers, just by myself. … But I think that is not normal.”
  • He said he also became “obsessed” with physics and trying to figure out the meaning of life.
  • “My driving philosophy is to expand the scope and scale of consciousness so that we may better understand the nature of the universe.”

The big picture: Asperger's and other similar disorders that were previously diagnosed separately are now part of a wide diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

  • Roughly 1.5 million people with ASD are expected to reach adulthood in the next decade and poised to enter the workplace in unprecedented numbers, Hurley-Hanson and Giannantonio say.

and this may help people understand certain behaviors/tendencies

Asperger syndrome, or Asperger’s, is a previously used diagnosis on the autism spectrum. In 2013, it became part of one umbrella diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5 (DSM-5).

Typical to strong verbal language skills and intellectual ability distinguish Asperger syndrome from other types of autism.

Asperger syndrome generally involves:

  • Difficulty with social interactions
  • Restricted interests
  • Desire for sameness
  • Distinctive strengths

Strengths can include:

  • Remarkable focus and persistence
  • Aptitude for recognizing patterns
  • Attention to detail

Challenges can include:

  • Hypersensitivities (to lights, sounds, tastes, etc.)
  • Difficulty with the give and take of conversation
  • Difficulty with nonverbal conversation skills (distance, loudness, tone, etc.)
  • Uncoordinated movements, or clumsiness
  • Anxiety and depression

The tendencies described above vary widely among people. Many learn to overcome their challenges by building on strengths.








I read an article some years ago that I think mentioned Jeff Bezos and a few others as examples of business revolutionairies who credited at least some of their success to Asperger's.

The Twitter Files Revealed One Thing: Elon Musk Is Trapped
Messages show Twitter’s past leaders struggling with a tough moderation call with political overtones. Musk is now on the hook for such decisions himself.
In the past two weeks Musk reinstated the account of former US president Donald Trump based on the results of a Twitter poll and unblocked a series of other users previously banned from the site for breaching content rules. Musk also championed the return of Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, whose account was restricted in October after Ye posted an anti-Semitic tweet. (Restricted accounts still appear on the platform, but its users can’t post or interact with them.)

Yet Musk this week announced that Ye would be suspended all over again after tweeting an image of a swastika inside the Star of David. His reasoning, which academics and journalists have called out as unclear, was that the post was a breach of Twitter’s rule against incitement to violence.

Like the Twitter staffers who deliberated on the New York Post story in 2020, Musk was caught in a tough spot and appeared to feel under pressure to make a decision. And, as with those past arbiters of Twitter policy, the behind-the-scenes action seemed a little messy.

A text message leaked by Ye appeared to show Musk messaging the rapper directly first, showing that he’s willing to extend personal service to some violators of his moderation policies—even if they are espousing anti-Semitic views. “Sorry, but you have gone too far. This is not love,” Musk told Ye, according to screenshots the rapper shared before his Twitter account was again suspended. “Who made you the judge,” Ye texted back.

Musk’s moderation assignments will only get more complicated from here. The longer he owns the site, the more likely he is to face a challenge with political entanglements. And research has suggested that hate speech has already become more visible on Musk-run Twitter.

Twitter did not respond to a request for comment about its incitement-to-violence bans and how rules against violators will be enforced. The company has disbanded its communications team.
