Does the quote “Antisocial behavior is a trait of intelligence in a world full of conformists” belong to Nikola Tesla?

Answer:

No, the quote is most likely a fabrication. It first arose in a supposedly lost interview of his that first appeared on a blog that has no definitive sources or documentary proof of the quote or interview. It is most likely that the interview was invented in order to project the author’s own beliefs and opinions on to a more well known and respected figure
