@Jura

I do not need to make more argument for my post as I was only expressing my opinion.

I have just joined this forum yes and I have no idea who fat tails is.

I think me and Mr Fat Tails are capable of sorting this out ourselves so unless you are his lawyer I suggest you retire from his defense.

In relation to my comments on reflection to my comment perhaps I have been overly aggressive and on re-reading his comments He used only indefinite terms which don't suggest pre formed opinions quote "rarely" and "mostly" .

I interpreted his comments as an attack on my post and thus reacted the way I did. If he did not agree with what I said I cant understand why he would want to comment in the first place. I was responding to a perceived attack and something that irked me.

Anyway debate is health and to me he just sounded like a critic in the sense that "teachers teach because they cant do" this in my opinion is wrong and negative and I was trying to put this point across.

Please explain @wldman ? Am I getting blocked already Ha that would be an new record even for me.

@DarkPoolTrading I love your quote and I have never heard it before but it make a lot of sense. I find if teaching a great way to check and reaffirm the persons understanding of a concept is to have them teach it back to you. If they can do that they can do it if they cant they don't and if they do it it become more in grained in there mind from teaching it.

They say that adults learn more slowly than children and in my experience this is true but only because as a teacher the adult will never tell you they don't understand something the child will.

@fatails I actually thought your post came from grinder kind who was becoming tiresome. If I had noticed it was a different poster I might have been less aggressive. I Apologies and stand by my views in a less confrontational way.

I'm not...

blocking you yet because today looks slow for me with the risk off bias. I'll block you later after I have a few more laughs.

@Big Mike

Today looks especially trollish Mike. Maybe first posts should be reviewed prior to access/membership? I'll volunteer to take a day on that rotation. Between this thread and the new gold/silver guy today shapes up as special.

Have you any thought of your own on this matter as your chat seems to mainly consist of over heard drivel. I cant imagine you have ever been a top performer and your idea that top performers have rarely been good teacher is not true if you ever have the privileged to meet a real expert they enthuse about their choose field and their passion inspires others around them making them great teachers.

I think that your answer is a bit harsh here, If someone has an opionion different from yours, try to respect it in despite of the difference. I am not talking knowledge or experience, I am talking about the personality. A performer and a trainer have different personalities. Just look at football, how many of the top players have become excellent trainers? And how many of the top trainers have been top players before?

This argument does not apply to the average performer and trainer, but at a certain level, personality and character become decisive.

I think in life is it good always to have a mentor and a student. It keeps you humble.

Absolutely true.


kerrmac View Post
I find your idea about top performers not being good teachers a huge generalization and maybe right for teaching in terms of school education but in the broader sense to be the best you need a depth of knowledge which can only be achieved by an obsessive quest. I find most people who have reached the top are normally more than happy to "give something back ".

I was mainly thinking about sports and artists, as I have been to a conservatory at an earlier stage in my live. I think that trading is related to sports and performing arts.

I also truly believe that it requires an "obsessive quest" to be successful. It has been shown again and again that motivation beats talent.


kerrmac View Post
Maybe your attitudes are simply not conducive to become the best but your more intent on being mysterious which you are. Well done.

How would you know my attitudes, and why again do you try to attack me. Lack of arguments?

"there has never been a statue erected to a critic"

Is this a statement, which was meant to be a criticism?

@wldman I hate it too, and I think if you reflect I have made a few admissions that I am at fault. Are you going to contribute any insight or opinion on the main post or just sit on the side lines making vague and non committal statements that really don't say anything conclusive? Quote a few cliches and like whatever seems to be popular at the time and try and attract some attention for "big Mike". Maybe you'd be better on facebook?

You guys all know each other? Seems like there are a few YES MEN.

Fat Tails I did not attack you again, I might have attacked you once fore which I tried to explain and apologies for. I know nothing about your attitudes I was trying to end the previous chat as I was daft, I didn't realize it was a new person making a comment.

It was meant to be an enlightenment That being a critic is not productive or helpful if you wish to see it as a criticism that's more down to how you perceive what I say. To be direct. It was not meant as a criticism.
