    Hey Mark,

    Peter Bossaerts

    I found this link on a blog I read. I thought you might be interested. Maybe if we ask *real* nice, the forum people will give us a section for Investor Psychology?

    Hi Mark,

    Good idea !!;)
    Yep.... Investor's/human psychology is always of big interest to me.
    Thanks for a link. Good stuff and quite advanced. I read few articles on this subject in the past.
    Some of them are very interesting. It all comes down to human brain which is still an enigma to science.
    To evaluate a risk as an investor/trader is rather a complex decision, and often comes down to objectivity, which is perceived in the different way by each individual.
    If you are interested on this subject try this link as well: Decision theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Cheers for the links Insight, another blog to add to my ever growing collection. I think I'm going to have to trim mine... it's almost getting to the point where there's too many to read!

    Insight,

    Thanks for posting.
    Ch. M. article is a very good reading (it’s almost entertaining)... ;)
    It made me think...

    Second is rather heavy and with my basic understanding of psychology I do not fully appreciate its content as yet. :rolleyes:
    I’ll go back to it again later.
