The Art of Contrary Thinking

The above video is a decent book review of the book, The Art of Contrary Thinking found in this link: http://csinvesting.org/2017/12/01/the-art-of-contrary-thinking/

and http://csinvesting.org/2015/12/16/contrarian-investing-part-ii/

You are neither right nor wrong because people agree or disagree with you but because you have your facts and reasoning correct.

Emotionally, going against the crowd will subject you to ridicule.

  1. I hold the view that one cannot realistically be a nonconformist in investing if one is a conformist in most other areas of his/her life. For example, are you religious because you’ve consciously reasoned it out, or is it because that’s what you’ve been brought up to believe, or it’s what everyone around you believes, or it gives you a warm feeling inside?

  2. I would agree that, in general, a skeptical, questioning person would be that way regardless of investing, learning, communicating, and most other activities.
    However, you have to be willing to accept that questioning others can upset them. So what?! as my skeptical, contrarian niece would say.
