Describing a Venture Capitalist in Nine Easy Steps

Venture Blog stumbled upon the diagnosis for Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and it looks like all they did is describe a VC. Go read the whole list, but here are my favorites:

1) Has a grandiose sense of self-importance

4) Requires excessive admiration.

6) Is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends.

9) Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

The full list accurately describes 100% of VCs and about 50% of CEOs by my book.
