When traders run into emotional difficulties with their trading, very often there is a mismatch between the method or system they are trading and the trader’s lifestyle and personality. Instead of blaming themselves for lack of “discipline”, traders should question whether the challenge they have in following a certain methodology might be because the methods aren’t right for them. Finding the proper fit between who you are and how you trade is a big part of finding success in trading. This quiz, based on the Three Dimensions of Trader Personality assessment researched and devised by renowned trading psychologist, Dr. Brett Steenbarger, will help you discover your true trading personality.
