Some might agree that he is brilliant only at the things he is passionate about and inept at anything else. Sheldon lives with, and works in the same university as, his friend Leonard Hofstadter.
My brain is better than everybody's! Sheldon is viewed to be an intelligent, arrogant, witty, selfish, and nerdy man. He is often intensely narcissistic, condescending, self-righteous, insufferable and demanding. As his intelligence is superior to other people, he sees no qualms in outwardly informing other people about this.
Sheldon dislikes change and prefers everything to run on his terms.
Despite this underneath it all Sheldon is a good man at heart. His main antagonism comes from him genuinely not understanding that his behavior is wrong or offensive, or him being held back by his severe limitations.
By far, Sheldon's anxiety and obsessions surpass and overpower his own advanced intellect. He became extremely paranoid after his house was broken into so much that he had Wolowitz install an advanced security system and even moves cities, only to instantly move back when his luggage was stolen.
He also deals with control issues, which partly stems from his childhood of constantly being bullied and dominated. Sheldon constantly adheres to the Roomate Agreement, it's every bycode and rule and forces Leonard and later, Amy with the Relationship Agreement, the same. Interestingly both of these clauses are highly beneficial for Sheldon and he constantly twists these rules to get his way, which he deems the right way.
In spite of his arrogance and egomaniacal stubbornness, Sheldon is actually extremely dependent on others, as he is not in ownership of a vehicle he is reliant on Leonard to drive him places. Heroic Actions Although not his standard characterization, Sheldon has demonstrated many moments of kindness, compassion, generosity, and even bravery.
Season One In "The Grasshopper Experiment", following Raj being incredibly obnoxious and rude to his date he was drunk at the timeSheldon manages to take her off his hands and thus save her night, simply by being kind and using his vast knowledge of Indian culture.
In "The Loobenfeld Decay", goes to unnatural lengths to create a perfect lie, all to protect Penny's feelings. In "The Nerdvana Annihilation", following Penny rudely insulting Leonard's toys and collectables while angry leads him to sinking into depression and almost giving away his entire cherished collection, in a rare moment of genuine anger Sheldon calls Penny out on just how much of a hypocrite she is as she herself collects similarly childish girls' toys, thus forcing her to apologize to Leonard.

However, it is uncertain whether it was Leonard giving away his cherished collection or Sheldon's horror at the thought of losing them that had caused Sheldon to react this way, thus this may have been anti-heroic.
Season Two In "The Codpiece Topology", following advice from Penny, Sheldon agreed to put his hatred and disdain for Leslie Winkle aside and support Leonard's relationship with her as a friend.
Although he ultimately ended up inadvertently sparking the immediate end of the relationship when he mocked loop quantum gravity and caused Leslie to realize Leonard didn't believe it either, Sheldon did still genuinely try to and succeed at cheering Leonard up in the aftermath.
After finding out that her gift is an autograph from his hero, Leonard Nimoy as well as some of his DNA apparentlySheldon gives Penny all twenty of the boxes. In "The Financial Permeability", Sheldon happily lends Penny a lot of money to help her through a rough spot, and then proceeds to defy her expectations of him by not caring that she is in debt to him.
He later gives Leonard a rare moment of praise for his bravery and selflessness and admits he was wrong and says Leonard is like the heroes in their fantasy novels. Sheldon is overcome with guilt at his desire to crush him the card game they're playing, and throws the game.
This does not last long however as it is then revealed Wil was simply lying to win the game.
In "The Adhesive Duck Deficiency", upon Penny falling in the shower and fracturing her shoulder, Sheldon rushes to her rescue, and overcomes his fears to drive her to the hospital. There he at least attempts to comfort her it may look creepy, but he's trying and later somewhat unwillingly agrees to sing Soft Kitty the same song his mother sung to him when he was sick to her after she asks him to she was a bit woozy due to the drugs to ease the pain.
She eventually asked if she could stay the night in Sheldon's room. Sheldon happily complied and gave her his room, him going to sleep in Leonard's. This is quite a good moment for him, as he often demonstrated a child like obsession with his room. In "The Spaghetti Catalyst", despite only getting to know her because she was dating Leonard, Sheldon shows a great level of care by going to great lengths to maintain his friendship with Penny after she and Leonard break up.
Similarly to "The Psychic Vortex" in the "The Plimpton Stimulation", Sheldon is more than willing to give up his bedroom to his guest Elizabeth Plimpton, showing that underneath it all Sheldon is a true southern gentleman.
In "The Staircase Implementation", it shows a flashback of how Sheldon and Leonard met, revealing how they became friends. Upon glancing over his calculations, Sheldon instantly spotted a flaw that Leonard missed.
However mistaking this for merely another display of superiority Leonard ignored him, causing the fuel to go critical. Leonard tried to get it out of the building, via the elevator. However, having calculated what was going to happen, Sheldon rushed up, grabbed the volatile chemical, calmly placed it on the ground, pushed Leonard out of the elevator, then pushed the close door button, and calmly exited the elevator.However, if you have watched it, you are familiar with the narcissistic, manipulative, arrogant, controlling, brilliant physicist, Dr.
