People in the military understand very well that you cannot take things at face value. That you have to look at rare events. They understand hindsight bias very well, and they have a sense of mission. They pay attention to the process and not to results, which is exactly the opposite of Wall Street. I was very impressed; the thinkers I encountered in the Pentagon made me feel ashamed to be talking to them, because they are far more sophisticated than I will ever be.
