After receiving my Abitur I was fed up with school and wanted to work and travel the world. So I became a receptionist, sold guided tours to tourists in Paris, worked as a barman, and... traveled the world.
After two years I felt that the intellectual part of my life was missing and thought that Studying Psychology at Toulouse University would be a good idea. Because during the first three years there aren't too many classes I had enough time to become interested in financial markets (Becoming interested meant at the time that I opened a brokerage account and stared at my positions for hours).
After reading Daniel Kahneman I wanted to do a masters thesis on psychological aspects of finance. In retrospective, I have to say that since then Jean-François Bonnefon has had the biggest influence on my scholarly development. He not only supervised my Masters, and my Ph.D. on socially responsible investments, but also introduced me to Sébastien Pouget and Etienne Mullet.
