So one day I was in an internet chatroom, wandering around and looking at other people’s comments. There was a on-the-spot web event going on in one of the chatroom, labeled “finance and investment.” Curioused about what it was, I decided to sit in and listen to the speakers. The event lasted for an hour, with 2 guests speaking for about 30 minutes each on finance and investment, respectively. From it I learned that to be successful in investing, you must only trust yourself and no one else, for it may ruin your ability to make rational decisions. However, one could argue that input from others can help you make more rational decisions by incorporating different views. Which is true? Decide for yourself.
