Ronald Reagan - his biography and the comments by his wife, associates and close friends always described him as 'incredibly naive person that thought everyone approached him with the most noble of intentions'. He was also known to prefer to be alone or with a close group of friends than out in the crowds and was incredibly focused and dedicated on what he thought was right or needed to be done.

I give him an 8/10 as a probable AS


Einstein and Nikola Tesla - read up on them, lots of material. 9/10 to both.


Frank Herbert (author of DUNE) - 7/10 probable.

Howard Hughes - whoa definetely a 9/10 . What is notable about this guy is he had the money to make what came out of his mind a reality without being a genius like the 2 above listed.

Don't know about Reagan.

Einstein probably.

Tesla definitely.

Frank Herbert-not familiar with him.

Hughes probably.

Here's two more-Alan Turing, and H.P. Lovecraft.

Einstein wouldn't be diagnosed with AS,he had significant speech delay,if he was autistic,he would have been on the kanner/classic side.

Einstein was also a bit of a ladie's man. Not very ASpie-shy.
