Warren Buffett's personal life, particularly his relationships, had a significant impact on his public image. His inability to take care of himself after his separation from his wife Susie, and his subsequent relationship with Astrid Menks, painted a picture of a man who was deeply committed to his business, sometimes at the expense of his personal life. His grief after Susie's death further humanized him in the public eye. However, his dedication to his business, even in the face of personal tragedy, also reinforced his image as a committed and focused businessman.

Some other examples of successful investors who have led unconventional personal lives include Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, and Richard Branson. Steve Jobs was known for his minimalist lifestyle and eccentric personality. Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, is known for his workaholic nature and unconventional personal life, including multiple marriages and a high-profile relationship with musician Grimes. Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin Group, is known for his adventurous spirit and unconventional business practices.
