I totally agree. Studying quantum physics was one of the major things that helped me develop my edge. Now I don't use anything that has to do with physics formulas in my systems; but what physics did for me was open my mind to looking at the markets in extremely unconventional ways. Chaos theory helped as well.
Now that I reflect on it more, what I think these two fields really did for me was severely reduce anchoring bias in my perspective. So in the last several months I've been noticing myself spotting thinking errors in my head much sooner then I use to. And what this obviously does is allows me to learn and troubleshoot at a more rapid pace. I've found that ruling things out that don't work the way I has been just as important as figuring out the things that do.
