This is actually a very interesting psychological point.
you have to understand this ok…
from when we are children and when we learn something we are praised for doing the right thing and shunned for doing the wrong thing.
after a while we Adapt to this manner of learning and grow up and learn to praise ourselves for achievements.
now … this guy has come on after 1 YEAR of (What he perceives as hard work and achievements)
CLEARLY he believes he has something to offer (right or wrong)
he is proud of his achievements and clearly would not be here if he could not distinguish a difference between a year ago and now in terms of experience and skill
and all he wants to do is share and be proud of what he has learned and in doing so he is positively reinforcing himself and growing as a person and as a trader. this is completely normal
BASICALLY… HE IS PROUD OF HIS ACHIEVEMENTS
he then comes here
puts on a seemingly innocent comment WITH THE INTENTION OF HELPING REALLY FRESH NEWBIES
and what happens ?
Guys… on a subconcious level (even though you may not realize this) You are damaging this guy psychologically
you are hindering exploration and learning
You guys are more or less saying to newbies “If you are not on Veteran level, Piss off and don’t post anything because you know nothing, you are pond scum, you are even lower than pond scum and you have no right to talk”
that’s basically what you’re saying and the message you’re sending
Now… Pretty soon, you guys will come on with a justification of what you did.
and it’ll be something like
"No, we didn’t mean it that way , we meant this…"
yeah… but the damage is done, the negative reinforcement psychologically has been applied
he has felt the way that he has felt
YOU CANNOT RETRACT THAT once it is applied
you can only apply positive reinforcement that is greater than the negative.
that’s how the mind works
so… have a think about what your’e doing ok and the damage you are causing.
Eventually if you keep doing this , we won’t have a site
this kind of reminds me of the old CB Days (CB Radio) back in the 80’s
you know why we don’t go on CB Anymore ?
it’s because the original purpose of it was to talk between ourselves on a medium that we took as our own.
we could say anything, IT WAS OURS (from a point of view) and it was cool
then, idiots came along and took it over, the COOL was gone, you couldn’t talk anymore, and idiots found it funny to blurt random stuff over the conversations of others
so… WE LEFT CB RADIO
and if you guys continue this, 1 by 1 Everyone will leave
Now… i’m sure the Mods won’t be happy about that and believe me if they see the hit rate drop on the site, they will do something about it
I’m just saying… think about what you’re doing ok
