5.0 out of 5 stars The Trading Personality Profile 19 Dec 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The Trading Personality Profile, by Dr. Gandevani, describes how a trader can identify his/her personality traits and furthermore provides supplemental strategies designed to maximize desirable traits and neutralize negative traits. Determining your trading personality is crucial because you discover which types of trading approaches are best suited for YOU. This enables the trader to bridge the profit/loss gap between a trading system's hypothetical performance and the trader's actual performance.
On a personal level, I have developed an awareness of my personality/characteristics and as a result, many of my thoughts and actions are both scientifically explainable and often times predictable. I am now conscious of my irrational beliefs (derived from my weak traits) and am able to remedy them before they become undesired behaviors.(i.e. bad trades)
Every trading day I apply the concepts in this book. I made an outline of the impeding "traps" that I am vulnerable toward (according to my weaknesses) along with the corresponding corrective strategy so that I can conveniently refer to the concepts as the day progresses. This prohibits me from creating any costly mistakes by knowing how to diagnose the belief &/or behavior.
The information I received about myself from this book has helped immensely. The book has saved me time, $$$, and potential frustration. I am sure it will help put you on a profitable path to success as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars some reviews are likely shill reviews 10 July 2009
By rcanfiel - Published on Amazon.com
this book is written by someone who operates a constantly advertised website in the trading magazines like TASC. He gives absolutely no feedback when you answer specific questions, makes wildly profitable claims without any audits or proof, charges a fortune for the service. And the few reviews on the web are pretty much bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a book on the science of psychology in trading. 4 Dec 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The Trading Personality Profile is the first book I have read which identifies the science of psychology to trading. I have read a number of books and arcticles which focus on pop psychology, telling the reader that it's discipline, persistence, determination and focus which will render success. However, there is a serious dillema. These books never identify the science of why we are incapable of achieving success as traders or investors. Dr. Gandevani has finally written a book which is a must read for any serious individual in the investment community, or anyone who is interested in bettering their lives. He recognizes that we must first understand ourselves with a Trading Personality Profile Test, which identifies our strengths and weaknesses in all facets of our personlaity and character. In turn, this allows us to genuinely focus on the real issues at hand. If you are a dedicated student of the markets or in life, then this is a must read. It is perhaps the finest book I have ever read on the subject of psychology in trading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock solid. Results gauranteed. 3 April 2003
By Nikolaos - Published on Amazon.com
The business of trading financial markets is perhaps one of the most daunting endeavors an individual can undertake. One with a multitude of technical and fundamental approaches which can bewilder any new trader (and many experienced traders as well). After countless hours and perhaps years of hard work in researching and understanding markets the journey down the path to a successful trading career has only just begun. Now the real work begins.
If one is truly eager to discover the individual that lies beneath just become a trader and you are assured to find out. Every emotion you have ever experienced and many not yet experienced will take residence on your desk right next to your monitors...permanent residence for most.
Flip through any magazine focused on trading and you will see countless ads promoting the latest and greatest trading systems and tricked out software which will give you the edge you need. Nonsense. What truly separates the consistent winners from the rest is simply psychology. Mastering psychological mechanisms which trigger all trading decsisions is the real edge winners have over losers. Yet for every 100 or so books written on trading methods, perhaps one will focus on trading pyschology. And those few have been lacking to say the least.
Enter Dr. Ned Gandevani. "How To Become A Successful Trader" is an instant classic that cuts to the chase and sets the record straight, once and for all. Beyond just theory, Dr. Gandevani's use of solid research and fresh ideas delivers on the title. If one is truly honest with himself, Dr. Gandevani's Trading Personality Profile (TTP) will target all strengths and more importantly, all weaknesses in one's personal makeup. But it doesn't end there. Dr. Gandevani not only highlights flaws but offers ingenious, yet practical methods to correct them. Methods that are not only applicable to trading, but to life as well.
This groundbreaking work is a must read for all traders, period.

By Ivanov Cristian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Useful book.
Helps you to identify your psychological profile and how this fits with different trading styles (mechanic,discretionary, etc) .
You may find out that you are not psychologically prepared for trading which can save you a lot of money which can be invested in psychological training first.
