I think, Warren Buffett has a personality that is very successful in investing. Lot of people in India go to astrologers to ask in which field their children should enter. In fact, the results would have been much better if they visited psychiatrist. For example, my personality type is INTJ. Though I was told about this in my engineering college, I realized this very late in my career. Luckily, I went into the career that rewards for this personality type.
