Said mockingly to describe people (like politicians and intellectuals) who use double-think, conceptualism and mental gymnastics to convince people of things that go against common sense and their own interests, but can also refer to plans or "solutions" which are unnecessarily convoluted. Usually such plans/"solutions" are intentionally complicated for the purpose of hiding ulterior motives.
"The solution is simple, but these big brained politicians have to make everything complicated."

"You have to be pretty big brained to understand that 1 and 1 is actually 11, and not 2."

"Intellectuals want to implement their big brained plans to engineer society."

A derogatory term for someone who over-conceptualizes. Who uses intellectualism and mental gymnastics to rationalize the irrational; to justify bad ideas or discredit common sense.

People who put their principles over being practical. Especially when their principles are at odds with the real world. Especially when they spout off their "rationalizations" to others.
We uncultured knuckledraggers just can't get our heads around the ideas that gender is fluid and race is a construct. You have to be big brained to understand that stuff.

Common sense is for common people. If you're big brained enough 1+1 can equal 11, and you should consider it your duty to explain to all the commoners how it does not equal 2.
