Some other notes received recently:
INTJs and Programming
Awesome blog! These two posts are particularly awesome:
- Successful INTJs: Less Tony Stark, More Iron Man
- How to be a successful INTJ computer programmer
I’ve also read the follow-up to the second post, An INTJ-friendlier Introduction to Programming. Reading your blog is like talking to someone that knows you really well, as weird as it sounds.
You are very welcome.
I will add that I know quite a few INTJ developers & software engineers who are doing OK. Check out Andy Sterkowitz for someone who’s new to me, yet seems to give off a lot of INTJ vibes.
I also understand that programming / software development can be a PITA job for a lot of reasons I outlined in those articles above.
It’s always a good idea to organize your thoughts on this stuff and work to framework it / manage it before the problems get out of hand. Identify strengths, build on them, measure progress. Capture weaknesses, isolate them, track them like a detective. Remain open to growth and leverage positive growth experiences into new areas where you know you need to grow.
Investing / Trading Resources
Do you have any other resources that can help with some fundamentals/principles of investing? Books/blogs etc
One book I would recommend without hesitation: Don’t miss O’Neil’s book, How to Make Money in Stocks, because it contains a lot of beginner material, plus a model for protecting one’s capital, trading under varying market conditions, etc.
IBD’s Investors.com, Investopedia, and AAII.com are also great web resources.
If you open a TD Ameritrade account, you’ll also immediately get access to ThinkorSwim, which has the most epic trading interface and that alone can provide some “how does this work, I want to drive the starship” motivation. ;-)
