Many investors find themselves buying when everyone else is buying, and selling when everyone else is selling. It’s embedded in our culture; including momentum investing. Instead, you should have a realistic understanding of your ability and willingness to improve the value of your investments.

This is why it’s important to understand the type of investor you are, including your risk tolerance, and adding your goals, investing timeline, as well as comfort level into the equation. Without this, it’s like sleepwalking to the edge of a cliff. Plus, it will help you plan your entire portfolio and how you invest. 

So, how do you go about determining which type of investor you are? Check out the flowchart below.
