* LonersWillStayAlone: Subverted by Sheldon Cooper: he has no interest whatsoever in making friends and ''no redeeming personal qualities whatsoever'', yet [[MinimalistCast for some reason]] people keep talking to him.

* MoralMyopia: both in and [[RootingForTheEmpire out]] of universe Sheldon expects (and is expected to) the people around him to bend over backwards for him, but doesn't see any reason to do anything to reciprocate. Many times he considers the bare minimum that he does for others (such as asking how Leonard's day went while admitting that he doesn't care) is equal to the unreasonable demands he puts on his friends, because he doesn't see them as equals. For example he got into an EscalatingWar with Penny over the rules at his apartment but also sees nothing wrong with imposing his rules at her apartment or anyplace for that matter. In addition it is bad to give Sheldon Spoilers but itís perfectly okay for him to give Spoilers to others.
** Sheldon also has no problem talking down to his peers or laughing at their mistakes yet gets incredibly depressed when the same thing happens to him.

* MortalityPhobia: Sheldon plans to download his consciousness into a computer in order to live forever. When he gets concerned that the technology won't be available in his lifetime, he constructs a robot with a webcam and monitor so he can interact with others virtually while remaining sealed in his room away from anything that might harm him.

--> '''Penny:''' You know, people think you're this weird robot man who's so annoying all the time and you ''toootally'' are...but, then it's like that movie ''WesternAnimation/{{WALL-E}}'', at the end! You're so full of love, and you can save a plant, and get fat people out of the floaty chairs...

* NotEvenBotheringWithAnExcuse: One episode had Sheldon anxious at the prospect of giving a speech at an awards banquet. His friends offer to help him work through his anxiety in different ways. Leonard offers to do a therapy session with him, Raj says he will teach Sheldon some Indian meditation techniques, and Penny agrees to take him to buy a new suit for the occasion. Sheldon asks what contribution Howard will make, and Howard replies, "My contribution is to pretend I give a damn about your piddly-ass problems. And that's 24 hours a day, buddy." Sheldon appreciates his honesty.

** Sheldon is this in the The Weekend Vortex. He made plans with Amy to visit her family, and even though the Relationship Agreement requires her to do a ridiculous amount of things before he would agree such as 72 hours notice, checking the tire pressure on her car, and calling the CDC to see what kind of inoculations are required for Orange County. (There aren't any) he decides not to go at the last minute instead opting to play video games all weekend. When Amy and Penny go to confront Sheldon the episode turns into how lonely Raj is causing all the woman to leave and Sheldon to get off Scott free

** Though, to be honest, what are the odds the girls would have made good on the offer if the guys had gone for it? Might as well carry on enjoying what they are doing.
