If the character is already considered an idiot by others, due to having an "invisible" disability that's mental/neurological rather than physical*, and perhaps said disability does affect some aspects of their day-to-day life (Asperger's Syndrome, anyone?), but they decide to milk the perception for all it's worth to deliver a case of Hidden Depths, Beware the Silly Ones and/or even a rant at those who demeaned and underestimated them, would it be a particular play on this trope? And if so, what?
