No offense taken at all. I don't spend a great deal of my time studying investing. I DO spend a lot of time studying what I work at and I'm good at it. You have giving me more to go out and read though.

I like Gross and Buffett because I like to see how their mind works. One of my favorite things to do is to figure out what people were thinking in either good or bad decisions.

It may be a rationalization, but the one thing that improved me most was when I realized that I had to think about things, and not get embarrassed by being on the Motley Fool website, or reading a trashy novel, or staring out of the train window for about six hours last night and just letting things run through my head. My meeting in 50 minutes will be better because it's still running around my head as I type now.

So, I enjoy seeing how Loki, you, Gross, Buffett and many more successful folks approach problems. My decisions are strictly my own, but that's ME trying to play around in YOUR head. ;-)
