Before going into the article, something personally important. I’m studying for a Graduate’s Degree in Finance and Economics, in Boston. I’m about to start my second semester and, when the third one begins, in January, I’ll be legally allowed to do an internship. I’m looking for an asset management firm that might be looking for someone that performs equity research, preferably in Boston or New York. If you happen to know of anything, I’d be really grateful if you let me know.
"The most important investor to study thoroughly is yourself.“

And that’s surely not through reading a lot of finance books.
My main issue, whenever I absorb something (reading/audiobooks/courses), is the sensation of the content being automatically erased by my brain in a matter of a week-month. I believe it’s because I trained my brain for this task throughout my entire high schools years (where every day I had a new exam on a different topic). I hope your theory will eventually work out, because otherwise I’m screwed. How would you train your long-term memory muscle?
If part of being a better investor is knowing yourself (and I think it is) then this demands this type of exploration. Also, I wish I had discovered Dostoevsky at a younger age than I did.
