The Third Man
People like people. No matter how much one might hold a sense of distrust towards mankind or a misanthropic attitude regarding civilization, even the hardest cynics need partners and friends. People are social animals; they need to have some support from other individuals.
When someone decides to enter the business world as an entrepreneur, there is a tendency to get defensive in the process. This is understandable, as most rookie business types do not want to make mistakes thanks to bad partnerships.
