NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "If you are in the investment business and have an I.Q. of 150, sell 30 points to someone else. What you need instead is an emotional stability and inner peace about your decisions," Warren Buffett opined at a Berkshire Hathaway shareholders' meeting in 2010.Inner peace and emotional stability appeared to be in short supply on Wall Street the last couple of sessions. The keynote-of-the-day is more of the fiscal cliff paranoia that's taking the media by storm. This seems strangely familiar to me and smacks of all the fretting over the "debt ceiling" last year and the fallout from The Great Recession in 2010.
