Brain-Damaged Investors Out-Perform Average Investors

I listened to that interview yesterday, and thought the most remarkable thing mentioned was this:

A study of people that have a particular brain dysfunction that impairs their ability to sense emotion from others, performed better on a hypothetical investing examination than the non-dysfunctional control group.

Thats something to remember when we digest all this emotionally charged market commentary and speculation. We are actually making it more difficult on ourselves to make clear and informed decisions in the future, by engaging in this sort of activity.

Analysis over Emotion in all things, not just the markets.
