Actually, I'd not consider this a matter of experience, rather like different types of traders: gamblers, analysts, dreamers, etc. And I guess each of these types have chance for success.

Okay, most traders say you shouldn't take trading as gambling, that's good and all. But how should you take it then? As a game? As a job? As a hobby?
