17. Sir Isaac Newton
The English physicist and mathematician is well-known for his law of gravitation and three laws of motion. Although Newton was never officially diagnosed with autism, today it is believed that his inability to keep or make friends, as well as his extreme focus in math and physics, were traits that likely explained his autistic behavior.
