Newton was allegedly manic-depressive (bipolar)...

Quote
His psychological problems culminated in what would now be called a nervous breakdown in mid-1693, when, after five nights of sleeping 'not a wink', he temporarily lost all grip on reality and became convinced that his friends Locke and Pepys were conspiring against him.

This perhaps explains what you have heard.


Einstein's "contract" with his wife makes him appear to be a real charmer ...

Quote
Einstein became estranged from his wife. The biography reprints a chilling letter from Einstein to his wife, a proposed "contract" in which they could continue to live together under certain conditions. Indeed that was the heading: "Conditions."

A. You will make sure
1. that my clothes and laundry are kept in good order;
2. that I will receive my three meals regularly in my room;
3. that my bedroom and study are kept neat, and especially that my desk is left for my use only.
B. You will renounce all personal relations with me insofar as they are not completely necessary for social reasons…

There’s more, including "you will stop talking to me if I request it." She accepted the conditions. He later wrote to her again to make sure she grasped that this was going to be all-business in the future, and that the "personal aspects must be reduced to a tiny remnant." And he vowed, "In return, I assure you of proper comportment on my part, such as I would exercise to any woman as a stranger."

I really hate it when people feel the need to medically diagnose the great and long dead, why do they do it?

Have their action figures fight it out...  :)

I'm quite disappointed with Einstein, reading how he behaved towards his first wife as well as his son.
It seems we are as much formed by how the media wants to see us as how we really are.
But his letter as well as his later attitude towards his son sounds like a lack of 'empathy'.

And maybe that is one of the prizes one pay for being 'driven' by an vision.
Like we have those 'deficiencies' created by Asperger syndrome.
That sometimes seems to strengthen other areas.

I don't really know if this is true though.

Got me good there. Sorry! I thought it might be Gregor Mendel in cleric garb, but couldn't figure out what he was doing with the flasks. The face and hair style fooled me as well as the fact she appears taller than all the rest. All gender stereotypes. I stand corrected again.
