“Psychologists believe that a number of famous creative luminaries, including Vincent Van Gogh, Albert Einstein, Emily Dickinson and Isaac Newton, had schizotypal personalities.”
That quote comes from the ScienceDaily article Odd Behavior And Creativity May Go Hand-in-hand, which explains, “Often viewed as a hindrance, having a quirky or socially awkward approach to life may be the key to becoming a great artist, composer or inventor.
“New research on individuals with schizotypal personalities – people characterized by odd behavior and language but who are not psychotic or schizophrenic – offers the first neurological evidence that they are more creative than either normal or fully schizophrenic individuals, and rely more heavily on the right sides of their brains than the general population to access their creativity.”
This research is also described in the book A Beginner’s Guide to Immortality: Extraordinary People, Alien Brains, and Quantum Resurrection, by Clifford A. Pickover.
