From Disability Scoop: In what looked like a puff piece about Jerry Seinfeld, NBC pulled an astonishing admission from Seinfeld:
Seinfeld tells NBC News
that he sees traits of autism in himself, indicating that he isn’t the
best socially and does not always follow what others are saying.
“I think on a very drawn-out scale, I think I’m on the spectrum,”
said Seinfeld, 60. “You’re never paying attention to the right things.

“I don’t see it as — as dysfunctional. I just think of it as an alternate mindset,” he said.
It would be interesting to find out what his K-12 school experience was.
FYI, Disability Scoop is a great resource on information on people with challenges.
