Men who fall prey to this syndrome typically work for private financial organisations, investment banks; and consultancies.
These men display an arrogant, superior air. There is much false confidence shown. At times it can also be observed there is a direct correlation between the width of the knot and the amount of arrogance present.
Many of these men suffered financially in the recent global financial crisis. Organisations such as Babcock and Brown and Macquarie Group, two companies that employ many men with fat knot syndrome, have seen their share prices fall dramatically.
It is not uncommon for men who have fat knot syndrome to simultaneously suffer from small penis syndrome and/or short man syndrome. When more than one syndrome is present this is of distinct dislike amongst the female population.
