In a recent episode of Young Sheldon, the spin-off series of The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon's obsession with receiving credit for his ideas is explored. When Missy sells a rare comic book that Sheldon wanted, it inspires him to create an online comic book database. He shares his idea with President Hagemeyer, who takes credit for it. Sheldon's fixation on being credited stems from a fear of his ideas being dismissed or stolen. Fans speculate that the college president may cut him out completely and use his idea for her own gain. This revelation sheds light on one of Sheldon's most narcissistic traits.
