It is why, although demo trading is great for getting to grips with strategy, live trading at small stakes is essential to develop your trading style.

Emotions makes us humans.
They also make us so bad traders.

True; but we need to make sure enough practice before playing with our own capital; we need to learn the tricks for the live trading.

Right. Not all of us get the successful trading for the first time.

No way; in my demo I faced MC for 4-5 times; although I used then 3-4% risk; basically consistent SL was my main problem.

     Humans are so bad traders;

    You are in 5%, who have profit;
    You are an alien;

In coming friday, the 1st of February is the NFP release day. I've decided to stay on sidelines until next week. That is emotionally difficult not to take any action. Almost depressing.

I didn't trade so much on demo. Instead, I tried to limit my losses until I get the grip from trading.

Human without emotion is not necessarily alien :)

Yeah. That is called a high functioning psychopath. I'd rather co-operate with a HFA psycho than a borderline who cannot control oneself ;)

Or simply you convert your trading idea to robot.
Test it with tick data precision over years
Run it on demo
Run it on small account
Run it big
Became independent trader, trading for living.

That is my story in short.
