In my opinion, this is rather equivalent to the 85% of Swedes who'd rate themselves as “above-average drivers.”

I agree, and this is perhaps my strongest complaint about the Fool. They make it sound as if all Joe Blow has to do to outperform the indices is read a bunch of financial information about companies and magically decide what stocks are going to explode. In reality, market-beating investing takes a lot more work than most people are willing to dedicate to it.

Of course, I'm talking to the guy who was up 60% last year before a mistake or two, so you could tell me a thing or two about how hard it is to outperform.... :)
