Is Mark Zuckerberg ExtraHyperActive ?

Hypomania (literally, "below mania") is a mood state characterized by persistent and pervasive elevated (euphoric) or irritable mood, as well as thoughts and behaviors that are consistent with such a mood state. It is most often associated with the bipolar spectrum. Many who are in a hypomanic state are extremely energetic, talkative, confident, and assertive.

In his book  The Hypomanic Edge,psychologist John Gartner claims notable people including Christopher Columbus, Alexander Hamilton, Andrew Carnegie, and Louis B. Mayer owe their innovation and drive, as well as their eccentricities, to hypomanic temperaments. Gartner suggests that the constructive behaviors associated with hypomania may contribute to bipolar disorder's evolutionary survival.

Among modern  people with hypomania are Theodore Roosevelt, Henry Ford, Steve Jobs, Bill Clinton, Charlie Sheen,and Mark Zuckerberg. Not sure about others, but it does look like Mark Zuckerberg fits the description...
