  • There are a lot of things we don't expect Hollywood to understand: technology, relationships, how the common person lives ... but you'd think they'd at least know how represent smart people, right? (Spoiler alert: wrong.)

    Eh intelligence doesn’t make you less or more of a nice person. Personality, environment and parental upbringing will shape how we act as people. For example BBC Sherlock is an dick because he grew up as a lonely child with hyper intelligence and a elder brother who was far smarter than he is, and also whilst the character claims he is a high functioning sociopath it is commonly accepted that he is on the autistic spectrum. This explains his inability to understand basic human interactions and social skills.

    Additionally, many intelligent people are also disorganized, and will write on any available surface if they think of something clever. I know several intelligent people who use glass for that purpose. One guy has a mirror in his room to write down complex physics equations in the night. It's not a sign of intelligence to write on glass, but it's a valid thing some smart people do.

    Actually the thing about having a Eureka moment - it's a recognized thing. While it may not have been an accurate representation of the historical event, they do happen all the time. If you stop consciously considering a problem your subconscious processes it faster and when it's finished or when you get the last bit of information, you have a Eureka moment. It's not necessarily a sign of intelligence, but a sign of someone thinking hard about something.

    The only exception was the one-season show Limitless, based on the movie. When the hero needed to learn to hack, he admits it took a couple of days before showing us "I'm in!"

    Being extremely intelligent (like IQ 190 kind of smart) is honestly a curse to some people, it usually comes with other disorders like OCD or Aspergers, I think the most accurate form of genius in Tv or movie I’ve seen is Sheldon (to a point of course they get a lot wrong) but he doesn’t get a lot of social things, he is awkward and even he has to sometimes sit for hours thinking about 1 thing

    One of the first statements you make is that Will Hunting by the "movie's logic" is good at memorizing quotes from history books because he is good at math. And "A figure of memorizing history textbooks makes you a good mathematician..."
    My question is: have you seen the movie? Or rather have you understood it? Because one of the key statements the movie makes, is that Will is in fact not much more intelligent or smarter than most other people but has an eidetic memory. Therefore he is able to remeber most of everything he reads or sees, which helps him to perform "well" in most tasks or at least makes him think so which is shown well in the scene where he tries(!) to psycho-analyse his therapist and actually fails, because he has knowledge from books, not from experience, or combinatory intelligence. This is why he has problems to bond with people and face his actual problems. The scene you show and kind of quote is one where Will does the exact same thing as the guy before him, just for a different reason. He is shown to be just as petty and competitive as the other guy and therefore, according to one of you later points "just as 'dumb'".
    À propos that point: maybe the interesting, or important people or characters about whom movies or tv-shows get made were mean, or just not nice, OR maybe an extremely intelligent person who is able to solve almost every problem AND is nice to everyone is just not that interesting as a charakter. You know... Sheldon Cooper with people skills is just kind of... eh...

    I also find it annoying that bookworms are automatically smart and educated, just because books are good per se. But it is never questioned what content is read, how the content is understood and how the content is used to help the protagonist in his story. In fact, in the 18th century books were considered as today video games and the internet, causing violence, making the youth lazy, nectlecting social life and killing imagination. And today reading a great fantasy story makes you super smart, but playing or watching a great fantasy story makes you dumb. Watching TRclips all day is bad (In a nutshell, Ted) but reading all day is good (Fifty shades of Grey). Sorry for my bad english.

    The writing on glass or whiteboard thing is probably so they can be mobile and think. So they can move around a room and still see their work - work on a problem consciously or otherwise while moving, allowing yourself to be distracted or relaxed or be aware of other stimuli that may alter your approach to what you're working on and/or help oxygenate the brain instead of staying sedentary at a desk or keeping your notepad in front of your face.

    I really hate TRclips comment sections in the fact that they're predictable in the fact that if you click on a video like I did about movies and smart people if you scroll to the comments section of course everyone thinks they are a genius or know a genius or even what smart people think. I click on a video about fishing and 90% of the comments are about people that are expert fisherman or they know someone that's an expert fisherman or some bullshit like that. Needless to say I have an above-average IQ but I do stupid shit all the time I think I'm a fucking idiot half the time and when someone says I'm smart I laugh because I say I'm not educated because I dropped out of high school and got a GED. Yeah I know people that literally have certificates and all kinds of degrees stating and claiming how smart they are and they brag about it on top of that like it's a big deal but a lot of the people I know that have degrees and certificates claiming how smart they are are complete morons when it comes to Common Sense or anyting that doesn't involve education

    The moment with Picard and his Hamlet reference was much less a show of 'Look, he's smart because he read Shakespeare's most famous play' and much more a show of 'This is the character of the man Picard is -- who values humanity, and what it produces' I mean, the fact that he could quote Hamlet isn't really even a 'smart person' tell -- considering that Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet are tied for Shakespeare's most well-known and performed plays. It's more akin to knowing the biggest lines from the most famous movies of all time, like "Here's looking at you, kid" or "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn" -- everyone knows those lines.

    The eureka moment with Cumberbatch as Turing, "love just lost Germany the whole bloody war," doesn't fit your argument well. The scene was probably entirely fabricated for dramatic effect, but the gist of the information was basically how it happened. Turing's team were codebreakers, and that slip up of repeated text was exactly what they were looking for. Once they had it, Turing knew that they had the necessary information to break Enigma; that's not an outrageous reach for Hollywood.

      Admittedly, the way Turing learns about it is dumb, but that's just because war is mostly boring and the actual way this information was discovered and relayed was probably about as formal as "British codebreaking" sounds. That doesn't have much to do with Turing's portrayal as a smart person.

    Smart people often tolerate stupid people. Until stupid people's stupidity goes too far. Like when stupid people all agree to destroy (for example) the rights of others as a mob or collective, or when stupid people insist their stupid perspective and opinions matter with equal weight and veracity as that of a smart person (sic Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez). That's when smart people are depicted as "mean" by stupid people. Because explaining to a stupid person why they are stupid is like trying to play chess with a pidgeon. (I'll let you find the related quote to this analogy yourselves.)

    You can tell what someone is like by what they paint and often mental illnesses are noticable and I am not talking about wacky paintings either but the view points, subject matter and choice of season/weather chosen can give you a glimpse into what mental and emotional state a person is in. That's the point of art to let others into your world. The subconscious addings are what makes art so alluring and beautiful because you feel this person gets you even if you've never met. Even if you were born hundreds of years apart. 🎨

    The one that gets me is foreign languages.
    Even though there are roughly 6,500 languages in the world today, you can guarantee that any foreign language spoken in the vicinity of an intelligent person in a film, they will know that language. Latin, Spanish, French, Russian, Chinese, etc, doesn't matter. If they're intelligent, they're all over it.
    And we're not just talking about the basics. They know all the subtleties, understand all the different dialects, all the culture, all the words and concepts that don't have direct translations, all the variations over time/generations, all the abbreviations, all the slang and differences between theoretical and colloquial, they understand the lot. And they can speak it fluently and effortlessly as if it was their native tongue.
    That's just how smart people work. Magic.

      I didn't imply anything. Your assumptions are your own. I think that they should portray smart people more realistically (as people who can effectively solve problems) and not people who can memorize a whole lot of things. Let's face it - memorizing and regurgitating doesn't make you smart, it makes you a copy machine. Also, don't portray smart people as knowing everything, because nobody knows everything about everything - make them humble (like most smart people are) and professionals in THEIR field and not EVERY field. Don't project dumb peoples' opinion of smart people, project smart people as normal people (which they are) who are very curious about everything that they do not know and who try to increase their knowledge of everything that they know. Also project them as humble teachers and not arrogant know-it-alls.

    The funny thing is that the things you describe as inaccurate doesn't need to be innaccurate (except the memorizing thing)
    A person can have huge mathematical skills and have low empathic and emotional skills
    The drunning-kruger effect makes people with middle knowledge at something think they suck at it. Really intelligent people will downthink themselves, but still they're quite intelligent
    Some people do get genious "shower-thoughts". Actually, many genious ideas comes from the subconscious, provided you've worked hard to teach it by doing your math equations. Since I assume Alan had been thinking a lot on the code, I do actually find that scene realistic (except the whole speaking about secret stuff in a bar)
    A person can absolutely be intelligent in different fields. But that person is likely to have low coordination or social skills. But I see your point. You can't have a phd in everything

    The problem is you, either, create an ensemble of people who each have a specialty that might be relevant or you get 2 or 3 who each have 3 specialties. Furthermore, do you make one of those characters capable of character growth? How does that effect their intelligence? Or have one normal person who is the audience and risk a weird mesh-up of personalities who may alienate the audience? It's not that Hollywood gets it wrong, it's just difficult to write that kind of story with everyone having a specialty while at the same time having unique personalities that may or may not make them look professional or create a clash.

    I'm sure that everyone knows what the blonde in A Beautiful Mind represents. However, for those who don't, Nash's equilibrium is based on a previous game theory statement made by an earlier mathematician. I can't remember what the original one was. But, Nash, through strategizing what his friends would do if confronted with a blonde vs the blonde and her friends, he determined that the already established statement was actually an incomplete statement. I hate these videos that say a mundane object solved an answer when all it did was fill in a small bit of detail to aid the main character in finding the answer (ex: A trebble saved Kirk in "Into Darkness".).

    6. Super smart people eventually become billionaire supervillains because the world is pathetic and needs adjusting. Nope. I know enough super smart persons who couldn't manage a lemonade stand , far less conquer the world.

    That's the point about being smart. These people don't sit and study to memorize. It happens in the ordinary course of things. And this sort of talent for recall...these people don't know any other way. It's not a trick. This guy really does get it wrong about smart people. Or so I was told.

    Directors and cinematographers are probably so in love with how writing on glass looks on camera, they can't stop using it. A smart character who is mean has more dramatic potential, more conflicts with other characters. It's harder to define a character who's all sweetness and light. People, ordinary people as well as extraordinarily smart people have "eureka" moments all the time. I think that most of us just don't notice them. I just try to remember that they're making movies, a highly stylized simulation of real life, but they have to make it to entertain people, not to be 100% true to life.

    I do have an issue with one of your examples when referring to the point that “smart people aren’t mean”. While that is correct, you use Sherlock as an example for it, which is not correct. While it’s is only referenced in the BBC universe of Sherlock, it is known that Sherlock is a sociopath, and thus has a harder time forming connections with people, having sympathy for ones losses, etc. I had a therapist-diagnosed sociopath best friend for years, and while she is one of the smartest people I’ve ever met, she has a distinct lack of understanding human emotions. While she felt them, she couldn’t be bothered to care about other people’s feelings. This is such the case with Sherlock. He is mean because he a) doesn’t realize what is wrong with his behavior, or b) doesn’t care.
