This paper examines Bill Gate's personality traits in light of the personality theories of Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers, as well as via his accomplishments. His traits consistent with Asperger's Syndrome are detailed, as well as well as his superior leadership.

From the Paper:

"Great leaders exist in many areas of public life from government to private industry but despite their differences they often have traits in common. Bill Gates for example has been compared with Virgin's Richard Branson and Direct Line's Peter Wood who-although all three have amassed huge fortunes from building successful empires appear on the surface to have little in common. (Mazur) However closer scrutiny reveals that all three men are described as focused, commercially intuitive and innovative as well as obsessed with customer satisfaction."
