One of the Brandes Institute's goals is to expand the investment community's understanding of market behavior. As such, we are interested in aspects of behavioral finance. Using excerpts and examples from Daniel Gilbert's book, Stumbling on Happiness (New York: Knopf, 2006), this article seeks to illustrate psychological pitfalls that may prevent long-term success for investors. It also includes seven tips designed to limit the influence of potential behavioral shortcomings and help investors make more informed decisions.
