The Genius of Autism Wiki

Michael Burry (born 1971) is an American physician and businessman with his own hedge fund. After his son was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, he diagnosed himself with Asperger's Syndrome too after reading more about the condition. Some reasons are problems with eye contact, social awkwardness and difficulties making friends. Here are some of his own quotes or quotes about him:

“It took all my energy to look someone in the eye," he said. “If I am looking at you, that’s the one time I know I won’t be listening to you."

“He found it maddeningly difficult to read people’s nonverbal signals, and their verbal signals he often took more literally than they meant them. When trying his best, he was often at his worst.”

“My nature is not to have friends," he said. “I’m happy in my own head.”
