  8. seems people with better self esteem have greater ability to admit they are wrong. low self esteem tends to generate rigidity as a byproduct of fear. one is a plus for trading, the other almost assures a blowup.

    it seems to me that looking to the market as the source/basis of self esteem, would be a flawed strategy.

    I am a blown up man. So I believe in nothing but scalping.

  10. I could not agree more. The more insecure you are (and so less likely to admit you are wrong) the lower your selfesteem and vice versa. I met a few people in my life who were classical examples of what I just said. I think it is better to avoid people like that if you can. They can be pretty mean to enhance their lousy selfesteem.
