In brief: Asperger's

At the top of the autistic spectrum are those with aspergers syndrome who have a high functioning mental capacity but still have a lack of human connection.
This may prevent them from some ordinary distractions so they can concentrate on being highly successfuly in certain areas like music and mathematics which looks like genius but is not quite.
