A coworker and I are having a discussion about a very smart person we work with who is also very difficult to deal with.
We both feel like there is a word or phrase out there to describe this type of individual. Someone you both respect for their intellect and dread having to work with because of their attitude.
The famous character Doctor House would personify this word we're looking for.
Edit: To be clear my coworker and I are hoping to use this word or phase as an inside joke at work. The word or phrase can be rude but must also be Safe For Work (SFW).
I'm looking for something that merges the meanings of brilliant and infuriating.
Example: "I always hear about Jeff being really smart but a real pain to deal with or a ___________ for short."
