Niels Bohr, the Danish physicist who made foundational contributions to understanding atomic construction and quantum concept, for which he acquired the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922, proposed as soon as that the purpose of science isn’t common fact.
Relatively, he argued, the modest however relentless purpose of science is “the gradual elimination of prejudices.”
Copernicus’s discovery that the earth revolves across the solar steadily eliminated the unfairness that earth was the centre of the universe.
Darwin’s concept of evolution steadily eliminated the unfairness that we people have been a particular creation, separate from the remainder of the species.

Now, even whenever you transfer past science, and to life typically, being a lifelong learner additionally serves an identical goal – that of the gradual elimination of prejudices we feature in our minds and the lenses with which we see and choose conditions and other people round us.
I’ve lived with and suffered via a number of prejudices over time, which have been dispelled one after the opposite as I walked on my journey of lifelong studying.
Each time I began believing I understand how the world was, the world confirmed me an increasing number of methods through which I used to be mistaken.
I realized that I used to be mistaken about what issues are.
I realized that I used to be mistaken about how issues work.
I realized that I used to be mistaken about who persons are.
I began my investing profession believing –
- what Gordon Gekko mentioned within the film Wall Avenue, “I don’t throw darts at a board. I guess on certain issues.”
- that greed was certainly good,
- that shares have been blips on the ticker,
- that the one factor that might assist me succeed as an investor was my talent in inventory selecting, and
- that earning money from shares required me to only be rational in my evaluation.
These prejudices have been steadily eliminated as I learn and realized from Graham, Buffett, Munger, Fisher, Taleb, and many others. –
- that there aren’t any certainties in investing, solely uncertainties,
- that greed isn’t good for an investor, and so are concern and envy,
- that shares have been consultant of companies and that to do nicely, I need to assume and act like a enterprise proprietor,
- that investing is essentially a recreation of luck, and that talent shines via solely in the long term, and
- that earning money from shares required rather more than rational evaluation and a fantastic management on my feelings and behavior.
After 20 years of being an investor and learner, I nonetheless have my prejudices and proceed to have a look at the world with my very own tinted glasses. And I’m certain that may proceed until I’ve my pondering schools working intact (for it’s our prejudices that make us people).
However as I proceed my studying journey and preserve unburdening myself with components of my ego and blind spots, I additionally imagine that I may even see a higher mild coming from the top of the tunnel of my ignorance.
I could get much less prejudiced, I imagine.
My life and pondering might get higher, I imagine.
And in case you are like me, I imagine the identical for you too.
Simply continue learning.
