Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX and Tesla, is a billionaire superstar. Proven personality as an entrepreneur and technologist. Musk hosted Saturday Night Live, a popular comedy show in the US, yesterday. Early in the show, Musk revealed that he had Asperger’s Syndrome and the whole world was searching for it.
Tech billionaire Elon Musk announced while hosting the US comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live that he has Asperger’s syndrome.
“I’m actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger’s to host SNL … or at least the first to admit it,” the Tesla CEO said during the opening monologue of the show.
This was reportedly the first time Musk has publicly spoken about having this mild form of autism.
What is Asperger’s Symptom?
Asperger’s Syndrome is a neurological disorder of the autism spectrum disorder. The main symptom of this condition is difficulty in social communication and contact. People with this condition have the ability to speak and interact well. But they will have a little trouble at public events and so on. Liking to do the same things is also a symptom of this condition. People with this syndrome cannot accept change so quickly. For example, a person who likes a meal for breakfast will want the same food for breakfast every day.
The other is the urge to stick to one area of interest. For example, if a child with Asperger’s Syndrome likes aliens, all his communication with friends will be related to the aliens.
Average and above-average people are more likely to be affected by this condition. Healthline, a health website, says that people with this condition tend to be extremely firm in their thoughts and attitudes and strictly adhere to the rules and procedures they have laid down. But this does not affect the study or future career. Elon Musk is an example
Scientists say that people with this condition may not be able to understand other people’s emotions, speech patterns, or body language. The study also found that people with Asperger’s Syndrome were more likely to speak without gestures or facial expressions. This syndrome cannot be cured. But there are a lot of therapies in the medical field today for those who have this to lead a better social life.
Saturday Night Live, the leading show in the US, is being hosted by a billionaire for the first time. Musk was accompanied by her mother and model Maya. Musk said he says and does things that others find funny because he has Asperger’s Syndrome.
Musk is also likely the wealthiest host of the show ever. The 49-year-old, one of the richest people in the world, has a fortune of $117 billion (€96 billion), according to Forbes magazine.
