Hello! :)

I am confused about this word “classic”! May I get it as “very typical” ?? See definition 2 in Oxford Dictionary, http://www.oup.com/oald-bin/web_getald7index1a.pl


If Dr. David say “the traditional sense of the word”, then that will make more sense to me! ... could not figure out this one ... :confused:



(Prison Break – Dr. David is a clinical psychiatrist)

Dr. David: ... ... If someone with a low IQ has low-latent inhibition, it almost always results in mental illness. But if someone has a high IQ, it almost always results in creative genius.

Sara: Do you think Michael's a genius?

Dr. David: Well, I think that word's been derogated in the media these days, but in the classic sense of the word, yes, I do.
