When psychologist Madeline Levy, PhD titled a talk, “Parenting the Average Child” hardly anyone pitched up; the reason she believed is, nobody thinks their child is average. The amount of bragging on “Fakebook” about our children’s achievements is nauseating, I hope to G-d that I am not one of the culprits ?.
According to psychology professor Jean M. Twenge, PhD; parents alone are not the only ones who think they are special. She analysed the Narcissistic Personality Inventory (NPI) score of 16,475 American college students between 1979 and 2006 and found that one out of four students in recent generations show elevated rates of narcissism. In 1985, that number was only one in seven.
Ok so where am I going with this observation – we cannot all be above average.
If the large majority of traders lose money and the increasing trend for people is to over rate their ability, then we are likely to see more traders lose money trading. I am highlighting these negative insights to make a point, a point that will eventually help you make more money. The PsyQuation ecosystem is designed to help you see where you fit on the scale of achievement. Once you have a better understanding of your trading ability, you will be in a much better position to set and manage your trading goals.
