Traders Love privacy ?

I have noticed that as a Trader becomes more experienced and grows in terms of skills, the more private He/she becomes or wants to become. They stop posting their trading results unnecessarily, some even don't talk about trading at all! hell, some even about the markets! (unnecessarily)
I think the reason for this is that trading becomes an expression of the self and hence personal, and logically, nobody goes around talking about or sharing their personal stuff. Being private ends up becoming a matter of common sense and natural. Anyone with the same experience or thoughts or disagrees?

I think most people come here initially because they are looking for help with how to trade or how to become a full-time trader. Sometimes people like to brag about all of the money they made (usually on SIM) but are silent when they lose money. Some people want a place where they can be held publicly accountable for their trading, which is why the journals, when used properly, can be a great tool for an up and coming trader.

I've been a member here for 10 years and I used to be a frequent poster early on, maintained an online journal here for a couple of years, published charts with my entries and exits, even posted my brokerage statements time to time just to prove I wasn't full of B.S. but I don't think that matters anymore: I don't need the approval or adoration of other traders here so I don't need to prove anything to anybody. I have done webinars and will continue to do more when I have something new or interesting to present.

So I don't post here as often as I used to, probably because I've kind of found what works for me and I'm not looking for advice or intervention to fix my bad habits. Don't get me wrong, there's a lot I still want to learn, the markets are always changing, and I'm certainly not perfect, but today I enjoy just hanging out to talk about trading if the thread interests me, or provide some help/advice to someone that is struggling with what I used to struggle with. It's not really a privacy thing, especially since I run a meetup of traders in my area, rather, it's more that the reasons I explained in the first paragraph, for me, are not reasons to come here anymore.

Privacy please

This is natural, and quite common. Trading is ultimately a tool for self-discovery, as is everything we do.

Experienced traders develop discipline and intuition, both of which are inward processes. Privacy gives us space to reflect, and allow us to condition these skills. As we gain mastery, there is generally less of a need to talk about the process- unless it's to teach or help others. Mostly, you're just comfortable doing your own thing.
