Cognitive dissonance

  1. As I had plan to trade the American market because of your elections, I had to spend some times reading American traders forum.

    I was quiet astonished by some of the reactions I read here.... So I had to think about what psychological phenomena were in evidence...

    Cognitive Dissonance :

    My questions are:
    1. How do you feel this theory applies in view of your elections results?
    2. How can one use this cognitive dissonance to improve trading results?

  2. when will Europe have a black president/prime Minister.
    errr try like NEVER
  3. Obama would not be possible without the EPIC FAIL presidency of George W Bush. Imagine if W was a successful and respected president. We would be "red" as of now.
  4. We'll first look to America and see how to deal with "cognitive dissonance" as we would not want to give a hard working and deserving individual a hard time because of the color of his skin!:D

    Please can we contribute positively to the 2 questions.
