Of course, I cried after watching this 😪”
It is unfortunate that such an extremely gifted man mentally ill was uncared for, while he may have lost his mind, there was no one to take care of him.
Why do geniuses sometimes lose their minds?
Highly intelligent people have a tendency to overthink, which could overstimulate brain patterns to madness and become tortured geniuses. Many of history’s most famous geniuses were mentally ill, such as Vincent van Gogh and Frida Kahlo to literary giants Virginia Woolf and Edgar Allan Poe. These two extremes of the human mind are linked.
Kay Redfield Jamison, a clinical psychologist and professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, said the findings of some 20 or 30 scientific studies support the idea of the “tortured genius.” Of the many varieties of psychosis, creativity appears to be most strongly linked to mood disorders, and especially bipolar disorder.
One study tested the intelligence of 700,000 Swedish 16-year-olds and then followed up a decade later to learn which of them had developed mental illnesses. The stunning results were published in 2010. “They found that people who excelled when they were 16 years old were four times as likely to go on to develop bipolar disorder,” she said.
Bipolar disorder entails dramatic mood swings between extreme happiness (known as “mania”) and severe depression. How might this brutal cycle engender creativity? Research by another panelist, James Fallon, a neurobiologist at the University of California-Irvine, suggests an answer.”People with bipolar tend to be creative when they’re coming out of deep depression,”
Fallon said. When a bipolar patient’s mood improves, his brain activity shifts, too: activity dies down in the lower part of a brain region called the frontal lobe, and flares up in a higher part of that lobe. Amazingly, the very same shift happens when people have bouts of creativity. “There [is] this nexus between these circuits that have to do with bipolar and creativity,” Fallon said. [Why We Zone Out]
As for how the brain patterns translate into conscious thought, Elyn Saks, a mental health law professor at the University of Southern California, explained that people with psychosis don’t filter stimuli as well as other people.
While the invasion of absurdity into conscious thought can be overwhelming and disruptive, “it can be quite creative, too,” said Saks, who developed schizophrenia as a young adult. Elyn Saks was also a mental health law professor at the University of Southern California and explained that people with psychosis don’t filter stimuli as well as other people. Instead, they’re able to entertain contradictory ideas simultaneously and become aware of loose associations that most people’s unconscious brains wouldn’t consider worthy of sending to the surface of our consciousness. While the invasion of nonsense into conscious thought can be overwhelming and disruptive.
No one can be overflowing with creative energy during a severe bout of depression or schizophrenia and these bouts come when the abnormal waves calm down.
Conditions of depression and schizophrenia are debilitating and even life-threatening, the scientists said, and although society benefits from the productivity of its tortured geniuses, those individuals don’t always consider their moments of brilliance to be worth the extensive suffering.

Saks put it this way: “I think creativity is just one part of something that is mostly bad.”
Pablo Picasso was known for his pervesity and cruelty to women and locking a woman up, kidnapping another and driving multiple women to suicide revealed his narcissistic traits.
