Sharing my BrainMode power report
wanted to share out my BrainMode power (BMp) report.
Quite a few folks had expressed interest in learning more about BMp, so I thought I would share mine and how I will use it in my trading practice
As/if you read further, Notice the auditory, visual, kinesthetic language; notice the implicit and explicit beliefs…
I took it this morning, when in a trading frame of mind
To me, the market is a learning laboratory for self-discovery; It allows us to experience its nature thru whispers, glimpses, and nudges in the results we get from our trading.
I have become even more auditory than I was 2 years ago when I first took this instrument; i attribute this to doing more recordings for Youtube for trading and teaching, and to the amount of time I have been spending in my doctoral program reading complex material. As I read, I hear the words and concepts in my head, I see how they connect (or not) to my cognitive/emotional maps, as I try to fit them into my paradigms, worldviews, cognitive word-nets/cognitive maps.
I conceptualize top-down and then fiddle to see how the eaches fit in, listening for reactions, looking for jagged edges & anomolies, feeling for friction, tension and goodness of fit. I test to see how it works locally and then scale up to listen and look for effects across other domains, and see how the new “whole load” is distributed across my load-bearing members.
I will go thru this report in detail over the next 2 weeks and use it as a lens to compare to my trading practice, in order to uncover more insights about how I may better plan, prepare, execute and reflect upon my results
The BrainMode Power for Professional Development comes with a series of 14 weekly followups with additional insights and exercises, tips and recommendations that can be applied, in order systematically deepen my self awareness of learning styles, preferences, my beliefs about them and how they intersect with and are manifested in my trading practice.
Calibrating my practice, as it were
Each of the folks coming to the research weekend and the live trading week have been sent their links to take the instrument and have a chance to play along and learn.
I will be keeping my notes in my learning journal, and will use that to focus my efforts.
My learning journal has 3 columns:
1. The event/experience/insight in rich detail
2. What I think and feel about it, and how it connects to my world view
3. What I will do about it
These reflect the Kolb Experiential Learning Model in a condensed form, one of the leading adult learning models in use these days.
