Understanding the Trading Brain

Trading Problems are not the same for all people, they are always unique!
This also has to do with the structure of our brain.
Our Brain is made up of three Systems that are of different ages and pursue different interests.
And these completely opposing interests of the three brain regions are constantly influencing each other. These opposing alignments are what make trading so difficult.
The brain is like a house that has been out and about for thousands of years was rebuilt and in which individual rooms are connected to each other. It differs from the brains of other living things in the ability to to think logically, to communicate with our fellow human beings and due to
the size of the memory. 
Originally it was believed that The brain is a single coherent structure. But the renowned American brain researcher Paul D. McLean (1913-2007) could prove that the human brain is made up of three areas that are of different ages in evolutionary history and have different functions
to have.
The brains in detail:
The brain stem is the oldest brain because it is with its functions was already in reptiles. It saves experiences from Millions of years. It is the seat of the feelings of life and instincts like
eg fear and panic. It is also called the “reptilian brain”.
The diencephalon is the medieval part of our brain. There is him since the appearance of the first mammals. The »emotional Brain “is and will be the control center of emotions Called the Limbic System.
The cerebrum is the youngest brain. Man also calls it the “thinking brain” and it takes up most of the space. It enables us to organize, communicate and be creative to be. It is the brain of rationality, of planning action and the foresight.
You will see that this “interplay of the brains” relates to the can affect individual trading behavior and their trading style!
