Nogravitasatall Posted August 9, 2013 Posted August 9, 2013 I actually see what you mean... In a way. His careful and methodical way of doing certain things is a small parallel at least... But of course they're opposites on the IQ spectrum! Then again Forrest Gump could be an idiot savant... fooling us all. Imo Forrest Gump originally was a parody of the wisdom of the masses, Sheldon is something of a parody of the intelligentsia. The know-nothings vs the know-it-alls. Both are solitary figures. Gump ends up with everything material, but doesn't care about it. Sheldon has few material wants, but he intensely covets those few things. Gump wanted love but couldn't have it, Sheldon has the opportunity for love, but is having trouble recognising that its something he might want. They are alike in that they are extreme, I guess.
