A Journey From IT to Freedom

Investing and Conventional Wisdom

Posted by IT Pilgrim on May 30, 2008

Seems like everyone these days is giving investing advice. Mainly, there seems to be two or three schools of thought:

  • The Inexpensive Index Fund
  • The Mutual Fund
  • The Stock Pickers

I title these because I see them as classifications. Over time, I have begun to see how neatly these classifications seem to line up with personality types. What I wonder is, how much crossover is there? Does everyone really follow their own advice?

    Hi,

    I believe there to be another investment classification. Real Estate, I see thousands of people giving advice on this topic.

    That is true, but I just didn’t think of it at the time 😉
