Einstein's skepticism and desire to avoid conforming prevented him from getting deeply involved in politics for most of his life. Regarding politics, he said, admitting there is at least one aspect of life beyond his kin, “How an intelligent man can subscribe to a party I find a complete mystery.”Non-conformity also helps in investing. There's often a trend to follow the herd - to buy stocks when it seems like everyone is buying and to sell stocks when it seems like everyone else is selling. Being a non-conformist, investing against the grain, can help investors buy low and sell high. That's the only way to be profitable in the stock market.
