This is interesting...

and I believe that there my be some psychological allegory...that is to say a connection between how participants process grief as in a trading loss.

Interesting because I can identify with the 5 point description and make specific connections that may be related to my development as a trader. BUT, I learned to love my little losers early. Kill the loser small and learn how it snuck in to your deck or it will be someone else's deck really fast.

The process gets simplified to step 2, followed immediately by step 5.
