I sometimes wonder if this type of article is motivated by people who have a vested interest in persuading the general public that they are not capeable of investing properly and therefore must use a professional .I am sure all the points raised have validity but I would counter that all these traits exist because we are human and have faults and one of the biggest is trusting other people to invest on our behalf and not taking charge of our own destiny-my little gripe for the day
