  • 2. Sheldon Cooper • Dr. Sheldon Cooper, B.S., M.S., M.A., Ph.D., Sc.D. • Sheldon is a theoretical physicist who lives with his best friend. • Sheldon is a peculiar character who can be described as a “prodigy”. • He has an incredibly high IQ of 187, although, he claims that is cannot be measured by normal tests.
