Elon Musk announced this weekend that he has Asperger syndrome , an autism spectrum condition, during his appearance on Saturday Night Live .

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people with Asperger syndrome have problems with social, emotional, and communication skills, as well as unusual behaviors and interests.

The CDC notes that Asperger syndrome affects people’s ability to plan for the future, but it helps them generate alternative strategies and gives them the ability to remember large amounts of information.

Musk is not the only neurodivergent current public figure. Ecologist Greta Thunberg and Mexican girl genius Adhara Pérez also have Aspergers.
