So sometimes the goals are not entirely financial but investing is always, first and foremost, fun.
I'm glad you enjoy the experience.

Personally, I'm a bit more risk-adverse and paranoid, and would probably not have the same sort of enjoyment in trying to pick specific investments. I do realize that investing is necessary and that some risk is needed (hence my use of broad based indexed funds), but not to the point where I'd be risking a good chunk of my retirement funds on whether the oil sector will go up or down in a particular year or whether the coffee harvest will be affected by a swarm of locusts.
