Well, of course we all agree that both of those innate emotional behaviors is bad. And, needless to say, we all know that the absolute best way is being objective. Now…given all that as a prerequisite, and to enter in deeper, past all that most obvious way we should be…I would have to say I would pick greed. Why?
Well, one reason is, that I feel the market acts mostly out of greed. So it would be like you would be more in tune with how it flows than you would with fear. I’m just saying that in that respect.
Another reason is, that I think you would have a better chance of learning something, actually anything, coming out of a greed mentality than a fear mentality. I mean, it is all about whether we learn or not. Also whether we can learn or not. And as I see it, if you are coming from a fear aspect, chances are you might not get to the learning ideal.
They say it’s easier to steer a ship once it’s moving. I would equate greed with the ship moving, likewise fear with the ship not moving.
And, again, to wrap all this up, I would have to remind us that nothing is better than to be objective, see both sides of everything. Cause if you want to know about probabilities, which I feel is the best way to go about it, then you absolutely need to be objective in the first place. Right?
Anyway. For this question…I tried to be objective about my conclusion.
