how would you classify yourself as an investor?

Bottoms up? I'd classify myself as clueless!

But I think I have some common sense and a decent temperament(that means I do a good job of staying away from rocket rides that would let me retire like Saul). And I think I am a good judge of talent and if I can benefit from that talent.

I am aggressive because I am almost always fully invested and I do have one oversized position in Berkshire.

But I am conservative in being heavily invested in Berkshire, SPY, and positions vetted by people I trust, can follow closely and measure my success easily.

I'd much rather be good at bottoms up GARP investing but think I can do good enough with my model with A LOT less effort. The 20% effort for 80% return rule.
