* Minor example in the novel ''Hush Money''. {{Spenser}} is interviewing his client, a college professor, about his romantic history in an effort to clear him of having had a relationship with a student that resulted in suicide. The professor, a black man, says that most of his relationships have been with white women; not because of their race, but because he is "badly over-educated", and only relates well to women who are also well-educated, and most of those women are white.

** One of the reasons Ai Haibara TookALevelInCheerfulness following being shrunk into a first grader is because she gains a much wider circle of friends and loved ones compared to her life as Shiho Miyano. As Shiho, she was raised by the Organization to become one of their top scientists by the age of thirteen, and her only close relationship was her elder sister, Akemi. Akemi's death is the catalyst that led to Shiho turning on the Organization and becoming Ai in the first place.

* The Loki of the Paradise domain in ''Fanfic/LokiAgentOfDoomgard'' because they're incredibly medium aware (can [[TheOmniscient read the matrix]] for example) and lonely thanks to it (just try to make someone understand that you ''know'' the secret workings of the universe).

* Kirsty in ''Literature/TheJohnnyMaxwellTrilogy'', who has a habit of explaining to people how stupid they are until they leave (she views this as a character flaw in everyone else). Johnny is her friend because he ''already'' thinks he's pretty stupid.

* This is something of a theme in the Tiffany Aching-arc of the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novels. Witches are without exception isolated from the people they help, and must constantly work to keep from getting [[AGodAmI a God-complex]], or simply going mad from loneliness, a condition known among them as "cackling". The primary cure is to keep associating with other witches who know what you're going through.
