Grifters have one specific thing in common. Not all of them, but as soon as I see this, I don’t expect them to be serious people. Instead of showing concrete facts and achievements, they list “tags” in their bio and profiles.
“Serial entrepreneur”. “Mentor”. “Web3/Blockchain/AI”. “Founder”(without the name of the company).
This isn’t helpful information. It’s just status signaling. Anything that can help them perceived more important in a certain social group.
Focus on the facts.
