You Are Not the Bell Curve

From Gaping Void:

Statisticians and politicians would like us to believe that our lives: What we consume, believe an think, can be seamlessly plotted into some sort of model. Maybe that is true for an an average of an entire population, but it completely ignores the micro. What is true for the entire population sn’t true for the individual. We are all a combination of different needs, beliefs, desires. It’s our individuality that makes us human.

Trend following is not about a bell curve either.
