The Trading Personality Profile, December 18, 2002 By A Customer This review is from: How To Become A Successful Trader: The Trading Personality Profile: Your Key to Maximizing Your Profit With Any System (Paperback) The Trading Personality Profile, by Dr. Gandevani, describes how a trader can identify his/her personality traits and furthermore provides supplemental strategies designed to maximize desirable traits and neutralize negative traits. Determining your trading personality is crucial because you discover which types of trading approaches are best suited for YOU. This enables the trader to bridge the profit/loss gap between a trading system's hypothetical performance and the trader's actual performance. On a personal level, I have developed an awareness of my personality/characteristics and as a result, many of my thoughts and actions are both scientifically explainable and often times predictable. I am now conscious of my irrational beliefs (derived from my weak traits) and am able to remedy them before they become undesired behaviors.(i.e. bad trades) Every trading day I apply the concepts in this book. I made an outline of the impeding "traps" that I am vulnerable toward...

some reviews are likely shill reviews, July 10, 2009 Byrcanfiel - See all my reviews This review is from: How To Become A Successful Trader: The Trading Personality Profile: Your Key to Maximizing Your Profit With Any System (Paperback) this book is written by someone who operates a constantly advertised website in the trading magazines like TASC. He gives absolutely no feedback when you answer specific questions, makes wildly profitable claims without any audits or proof, charges a fortune for the service. And the few reviews on the web are pretty much bad.

Finally, a book on the science of psychology in trading., December 4, 2002 By A Customer This review is from: How To Become A Successful Trader: The Trading Personality Profile: Your Key to Maximizing Your Profit With Any System (Paperback) The Trading Personality Profile is the first book I have read which identifies the science of psychology to trading. I have read a number of books and arcticles which focus on pop psychology, telling the reader that it's discipline, persistence, determination and focus which will render success. However, there is a serious dillema. These books never identify the science of why we are incapable of achieving success as traders or investors. Dr. Gandevani has finally written a book which is a must read for any serious individual in the investment community, or anyone who is interested in bettering their lives. He recognizes that we must first understand ourselves with a Trading Personality Profile Test, which identifies our strengths and weaknesses in all facets of our personlaity and character. In turn, this allows us to genuinely focus on the real issues at hand. If you are a dedicated student of the markets or in life, then this is a must read. It is perhaps the finest book I have...
