Traits Of A Great Investor

I went to a lunch today where I heard one of the best hedge fund investors over the past 25 years speak.  It was a great talk and focused on many issues that I found relevant to our work.

My favorite part of the talk was where he said that great investors share a number of personality traits and then went on to list them.  Here is his list:

Tenacious (but not stubborn)
Creative (but not overly so)
Logical Thinker
Thorough (but not too thorough)
Values and invests In relationships
Adjusts to and bounces back from mistakes
Decisive (but not impetuous)

It’s a great list. I might put it up on my wall right next to the "what are you gonna do" picture.
