Tesla Tuesday: OCD

suspect that Tesla suffered from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), which was
not a classified illness in his time but considered a symptom of insanity. He
would always sit at the same table at his hotel restaurants, have 18 napkins
brought over so he can clean his silverware, plates, and glasses due to his
great fear of germs. He never shook hands with people; also before entering a
building he would circle the block 3 times. He was disgusted by anyone else’s
hair; he hated jewelry especially pearl necklaces, and loathed perfume. He had
so many phobias he couldn’t engage into relationships with women and he
remained celibate all his life.
