Mathematician John Nash suffered from schizophrenia. But his episodes of delusions failed to keep him from his work. His “Nash equilibrium” theory assumes that in game theory, an individual cannot make any gains regardless of their various approaches if the other parties do not make any changes to their respective approach. This simple, yet ingenious idea earned him a Nobel Prize in 1994.
