Challenge your own way of thinking and let other traders help you uncover your blind spots. We all have them. I read people who think differently than I do in order to learn. These folks are a lot smarter than I am.
I rely on systematized trading rules and by gaining new insight from other people I am better off because I can oftentimes reduce the wisdom into a trading rule to enhance what I already have.
I couldn’t do that on my own – not without a great deal of random luck or perhaps a big loss that helped reshape my thinking. Below is a partial list for conscious-mind style resources – there are more coming.

IMHO, you will not learn anything if you’re listening to or reading too much of “group think.” I am not looking for people to help me feel good about what I’m doing – I’m looking to get challenged. Get out of your comfort zone and learn a new angle on something you think you’re an expert at. It’s eye-opening when you find out your not.
