3 life lessons from The Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory contains a lot of lessons – although most of them are about astrophysics and computers. Between the comedy and geekiness, The Big Bang Theory also contains some really great life lessons. Here are a few:

1. There is someone for everyone – whether romantically or as a best friend. Sheldon seems like the ultimate undate-able guy. In fact, Wolowitz is pretty insanely undate-able, too. Nonetheless, both of these characters – as well as all the other main characters on the show – manage to find love interests just as strange as they are.

2. No one knows everything. Although it’s something that Sheldon would hate to admit, he doesn’t know everything. He may seem like he does – and there may be people in your life who seem like they do. That doesn’t mean you have to be intimidated by them because, in truth, they don’t know everything. Remember the episode when Penny completely stumped Sheldon by asking him who Radiohead was?

3. Everyone has strengths. With characters like Sheldon – with his insane lack of social skills – and Penny – with her over-the-top dumb blonde routine – it can be easy to focus on the many things that various Big Bang Theory characters don’t have to offer. No matter how much they pick on one another’s shortcomings, though, their bizarre balance of gifts and talent exemplifies the way in which everyone can bring something to the table, whether it’s in a business setting of in one’s personal life.
