Bill Gates - richest man in the world and presumed ADHD sufferer

Published: January 18, 2021

Great thinking minds like Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison and not to forget Bill Gates have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder but they all used it to nurture their talent and intellect.

Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft and the richest man in the world, is said to suffer from ADHD. As a child Bill used to ask a lot of questions and always disturbed the whole class and had a habit of reading ahead of his class. Bill Gates was poor in studies, and his condition was in fact so bad that he had to drop out of Harvard University due to his bad performance in school.

Many famous people have overcome attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and Bill Gates is one of them. While it remains officially unconfirmed that Gates has ADHD, when searching him on the internet one stumbles over a multitude of websites that claim he does.

Bill had great dreams and he always dreamt of going big with his ideas at some point in his life and he proved it in style. Talking about his big dreams, he said: “I really had a lot of dreams when I was a kid, and I think a great deal of that grew out of the fact that I had a chance to read a lot”.

Other celebrities who have been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD include Will SmithMichael PhelpsJim Carreyand Jamie Oliver.

    While we’re on the subject of Bill Gates - richest man in the world and presumed ADHD sufferer - Celebrities - Celebrities with diseases, Most persons in the world would rather work a job than pursue a house based organization. Most many people would rather call it a “scam” than even take a look at the online business strategy. But then again, most folks wouldn’t even recognize a home business plan.
