Brennan’s unusual characteristics shown in “The Bod in the Pod” suggests scientists are emotionally withdrawn and highly compulsive. It is portrayed that scientists must be unempathetic towards all aspects of life in order to be successful and respected in their profession, a quirk that is often associated with extraordinary intelligence.
