I got the first and last correct. Least effective in terms of retention rate is Lecture and most effective is teaching others.
I thought Reading should do better. I know I learn about investment theories through reading,
When I think about my learning of investment, a lot of it doesn't make sense until I think further. Read the questions first, and see if you have the same conclusion as me.
1) If Lecture is least effective, when are people paying good money to go for them?
2) What is the easiest way to apply "Teach Others" without flouting the law and break relationships when what you teach turn out wrong or they applied it wrongly.
3) Who are the strongest advocate of practice by doing?
Now for the answers.
1) They provide the fish. The counter you can buy at the end of the session.
2) Blog about it. Just like me LOL. But we always have disclaimer that we are not giving advice. Teaching is not giving advice
3) Day traders. They buy, sell almost every day. Long term investors? Oh no, how to frequently invest long term? It is a inherent conflicting term. Although we can practice researching and scuttle butting.
So if you read a company AR,researched about it, you should followed it up by discussing it at forum, summarized it at your blog.
As for audio-visual, can't seem to find a parallel in investment learning journey.
As for demonstration, you can always see bloggers and forumers track records.
Problem is, investment has no right answers!
So even if your retention rate is 100%, you may still fail your exams!
Sorry, a bit bonkers today. excuse my nonsensical post.
Chill, its Friday!
