(Adjective) used in the description of someone who believes they are better than everyone else in their career field. These people identify themselves through their careers due to the fact that they have failed at most other aspects in their life. They falsely identify their self worth through their career. These people can be easily identified by looking at the bumper stickers on the automobile they drive, t-shirts they wear, conversations they have, magazines and books they read. They have no life or enjoyment outside of their career.
I couldn't have missed the fact that Jane is a top flight nurse by the stethoscope hanging from her rear view mirror, personalized "RN" license plate, and the 5 nursing organization bumper stickers on her Honda Civic. So sad.
