Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft and the richest man in the world, is said to suffer from ADHD. As a child Bill used to ask a lot of questions and always disturbed the whole class and had a habit of reading ahead of his class. Bill Gates was poor in studies, and his condition was in fact so bad that he had to drop out of Harvard University due to his bad performance in school.

Many famous people have overcome attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and Bill Gates is one of them. While it remains officially unconfirmed that Gates has ADHD, when searching him on the internet one stumbles over a multitude of websites that claim he does.

Bill had great dreams and he always dreamt of going big with his ideas at some point in his life and he proved it in style. Talking about his big dreams, he said: “I really had a lot of dreams when I was a kid, and I think a great deal of that grew out of the fact that I had a chance to read a lot”.
