    I just read this one and find it very interesting. Most of us started trading as transactional, i.e., trying to make money from the market. As we progress along we develop a more intrinsic relationship with the market, i.e., taking a deeper interest of the market and trying learn how it works.

    Then solving the puzzle takes priority over P/L. It’s not that P/L is unimportant anymore, but rather it will take care of itself when the puzzle is solved.

    Well if the puzzle is solved one should just take whatever one can from the market.

    PS, I know you’re being sarcastic. :sneaky:

  10. That's not the face or personality of a trader, or a truly successful one anyways.
    That's the face, eyes, and personality....of a problematic gambler who seeks the high, rush and thrill and emotions and prospect of the win.

    I hate to pass judgement on someone or people so quickly, but I've always been a good reader of people.
    The bests traders are calm, neutral, quiet-looking, mute, shy, introspective and a bit borderline psycho.
    You have to peel at them slowly, and gently, like skinning a grape. Not slicing and dicing with force to a watermelon or orange.

    Scientific studies have been done on facial features and personalities and determine what kind of person they are, their pros/cons, strengths and weaknesses.
