Furthermore,

People who are truly ignorant are not aware of their ignorance - not being aware that one does not know is a defining quality of ignorance.
Ignorance seems to be a universal condition. In some way and to some degree, we are all ignorant. To a certain extent, we are all victims of illusion. Becoming aware of one's own ignorance is the first step towards getting rid of it.

It is a thinking process, but also one of taking concrete steps in real life. It is an act both of analysis and commitment. Ignorance is the root of suffering. Ignorance is more than just the absence of knowledge, even though a lack of knowledge is often part of the condition. It is the negative opposite of wisdom: the absence of qualities associated with wisdom.

Ignorance also implies a lack of compassion, and as such it constitutes a self-centered attitude and its subsequent destructive approach to life. It is a life of greed and hatred instead of compassion and wisdom. It is to fall victim to illusions of permanence and materialism - the inability to distinguish between the real and the fake, and the failure to choose priorities correctly.

C'mon, c_v, you can't take credit for those words ! :LOL:

Certainly it is tough Lee, and not done in a day or a week. But there are techniques that can help you change. And they can make startling differences to your everyday life, and your reactions to situations. As a simple example for the short term, people's reactions and feelings can be affected just by a good night's sleep, some sunshine, healthy food and some exercise.

Some people perhaps have no such issues, and you may be one of them, so you won't have needed to worry about this. As you say, it is an interesting topic. I don't know what % of people have phobias, anxieties, bad habits etc. but I'd guess it's pretty high.

I've always been open and honest when it comes to day trading. For some reason I cannot become or have not been profitable to date. I can talk it and tell someone what to do but when it comes down to it my account speaks volumes and unfortunately it says I always lose money day trading. Scalping is even worse.

I know what my problem is but do not know how to solve it. Its like a bad trait I cannot shift.

One example is not letting go of a bad trade and seeing things that to someone else may not be there at all. I also experience sweaty hands (no joke) and itchy fingers. The classic thing is I will always say to anyone that tries to help "I know". So, why don't I do something about it. There is something not quite right. Like a soldier that knows exactly what to do in the field of battle but when faced with adversity just cant pull the trigger.

I've just been fortunate enough to know that I am no good at it and therefore I stay well away. If I am to day trade it really is only for a bit of fun and just like the casino I understand that the chances of me making money over time are non existence. I figure with this attitude alone I will be right with the outcome.

Maybe this is why some teach. Although that's another avenue that I am not good at because I am not patient enough with people that want a million over night. I will give it for free and for what its worth but I can also close the shop without anyone asking for money back or screaming they have been ripped off. :)

although when you see the (poor) quality of the stuff out there in the Market.... an honest Trader with knowledge and warnings to impart could command at least a few dollars fee here and there ?
