A person considered to be vain, temperamental and/or conceited, usually believes that they possess knowledge that is exact or close to perfect. TPD’s typically have an aversion to menial tasks and systems due to a ‘god-complex’. Often found in Alumina refineries, titanium dioxide plants and sugar mills.
Gordon is such a Technical Prima Donna (TPD), he struts around with his sleeves rolled up, skiting his technical prowess whilst getting others to do his paperwork!
