There is no easy answer to this question. But in the following three part series, we will take a look at one of the more successful investors to come along in the past century. A humble man prone to self-examination and reflection. Most investors never take the time to do what is necessary to achieve this sort of inner investor peacefulness.
In part one of this review on one of the greatest investors, Bernard Baruch, titled "Notes on Investing: Baruch and Lessons Learned", we looked at what he has learned from his own mistakes, errors that we all make and of which numerous books have been written in anattempt to correct our own investor and totally human fallibilities on the subject.
In part two, we looked at, among other things, the art of investing and getting a good night's sleep.
In part three of this series, we take a look at Baruch, the behavioralist, predating the science and doing so by examining how people react to markets, how he responded to his own inner biases and why stepping back for a spell gives one new and better perspective.
