premfan Posted March 23, 2016 Share Posted March 23, 2016 Great I have your attention with the subject line. It seems to me that great investors or very good ones are wired that way. Its in the DNA and cant be taught. Many variables like parenting and interests before the age of 13-14 matter. For some context i'm a pretty shitty investor ( average returns with low capital base) that's why I don't give advice and i'm not active on the forum while being a member since feb 2009. I'm a good operator though I run two hotels and can talk about executing all day. That said, this is a investing forum. In 7 years I might come back and brand myself as a great investor. That said, i'm convinced that investing is intuition, context, and DNA based. Lets be intellectually honest if you have been at this for 5-7 years and you are not winning. You can still learn,model, and read that's fine. But, 97 percent chance you are not destined to be a great investor. Adjusting and shifting to find your strengths is absolutely key to everything and especially in business. Listening to investors that are winning is why I still check this forum. People like eric, oddball, and some others. My question is that investors that have been playing this game say for two business cycles 8 years or so and are not winning. Are you still optimist that a shift will occur to make you very good to great or do you need a dose of intellectual honesty? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
