You know him from the hit geek-comedy, The Big Bang Theory. Dr. Sheldon Lee Cooper (B.S., M.S., M.A., Ph.D., Sc.D.) is the obsessive-compulsive supergenius resistant to sarcasm, lesser scientists, and bad hygiene. His personality is often overbearing, but in the end, he's just a lovable Texas boy living the academic dream with his friends in California. Here's why we could all use a dose of Sheldon in our lives.

1. We'll actually test some theories.

Being a world-class theoretical physicist, Sheldon knows a thing or two about testing theories. He may actually inspire us to hit the streets and make some science happen.

2. We'll wash our hands more.

Cleanliness is next to Sheldonliness!

3. We'll have written agreements for just about everything.

Sheldon never shies away from an addendum. Arguments were are always easy to win when there's written documentation.

4. We'll get a degree. Or two or three or five.

While we might not graduate college at 16, he'll inspire us to study. And study hard.

5. We'll spend quality time with our friends.

Even physics doesn't get in the way of Sheldon and his friends. Whether at the comic book store, a convention, or in the living room watching Star Wars, Sheldon is always with his team.

6. We'll inspire others to do better.

Sheldon has a soft side. Even though he's better than everyone else, he still does good things once in a while.

7. We won't take 'No' for an answer.

Sheldon's sheer conviction that he's right all the time helps him tire everyone out and get ahead.

8. We'll approach a problem from different angles.

We don't know what's going on in his mind, but it's working.

9. We'll be more organized.

Sheldon had a panic attack when he saw Penny's messy room. That's about to change.

10. We'll drink less.

Drink more milk!

11. We'll embrace our inner child.

Bazinga.

Sheldon may be sometimes annoying, but he's always himself. And that's why we love him.
