In my home games I deal with this by failure, but ultimately I just do a better job recruiting in the first place. I no longer expect rp in society at all, and if I get it its a nice side benefit.
So if the player of the INT 22 wizard fails to act like a genius (say by making a tactical error or needing to write down a name to remember it), is he also a "moron" who "doesn't understand doing things in character"?
Our GM solved this by allowing a certain number of "Logical Extension" rolls from our genius players. They roll a straight Int check and he tells them some valuable info that they would reasonably be able to infer. (Kinda like Sherlock Holmes)
