Types of Investors

In Benjamin Graham's book, he defines two types of investors based on the aggressiveness of their portfolios:

  1. The active / enterprising investor; and
  2. The passive / defensive investor

The former requires continuous researching of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds and this type of investor exerts much time and energy, while the latter has a fixed portfolio that runs autonomously regardless of the situation.

If you plan to become an investor, pick the type that best suits your personality to ensure the longevity of the approach.

Remember that you cannot be perfect all the time. Recognise which of your worries you can realistically do something about and which are not in your control.

How to do that:

  • Create a list. Seeing your worries on paper can help in identifying which tasks are important, which are achievable, and which are out of your control.
  • Acceptance. Open up to difficult feelings and learn how not to overreact to them.
  • Interrupt the habit of worry. When you notice yourself worrying, tell yourself something like "Save if for later' or 'It will get done.'
