Personal Quote:
"So you have to figure out what your own aptitudes are. If you play games where other people have the aptitudes and you don't, you're going to lose. And that's as close to certain as any prediction that you can make. You have to figure out where you've got an edge. And you've got to play within your own circle of competence." Charlie Munger

An Interview with PosFCF

Last updated: 5/14/2017
The Fool:
To what extent has your financial success, or lack thereof, been the result of luck versus skill?
PosFCF:
More skill than luck, but can't assign percentages....could be 50.05/49.95....but buying when there is blood in the streets is an acquired skill, as it goes against my natural inclination.
The Fool:
If you could use one example from your life to teach a financial lesson, what would it be?
PosFCF:
With enough determination anyone can learn to be a good investor....but the market will teach you things about yourself you never wanted to face, so don't get into it if you want to keep intact the image of yourself you currently hold
The Fool:
Have you had a brush with fame, the proverbial '15 minutes'? Tell us about it.
PosFCF:
No, no brush with fame....don't want one either....let others have that "pleasure"
