Does CFA teach us humility?

To those who have failed CFA at least does it teach us to be more humble.

Indeed, although the post of some here let me believe the opposite is true…

I have couple of friends who became more humble indeed…

I became much more arrogant.

No it doesn’t. Motherhood does. :wink:

Ha! That’s an astute question! People prepping for CFA exams are all cream of the crop – used to being at the top of every educational efforts of their lives. Then plop. The first failure. I think those who continue gain some humility – 80% quit and then don’t face the failure for 3+ years.

Don’t even have to fail to learn humility. Had to reel back the ‘I know that’ attitude if I wanted to pass to make sure I combed through all the gaps and gave it as much as I could have.

Mostly taught me finance.

hahaha spoken like a mom

No it does not. Check the LOS list and the command words for all 3 levels. Nothing about being humble, mostly about WEALTH and the greenback boogie.

You can practice being humble on your day to day activities, and you can also violate the “code of ethics and professional standards” while being humble.

Humbled after failure.

Honored after success.

and grateful for the experience.

with that said I took never used an eraser during the exams because I never made a mistake. Respect my ninjas.
