The attribute of successful traders

By Felix Salmon. If I could attempt a paraphrase,
A successful trader needs to be so arrogant that he can effectively convince himself that he is wrong.
There is a link to John Kay on Richard Rorty. He seemed to channel the ghost of Karl Popper, from my quick reading.

I think that my aspirations for humility are career limiting. It is actually amazing that I have the risk limits I do. But then again, I've never come close to blowing up. Aim small, miss small.
