That is definitely true to a large extent. A fundamental attribute that distinguishes a Warren Buffett from George Soros is their time perspective. Warren Buffett is a classical example of a long term investor who looks to identify quality stocks and wait for the results to manifest over a period of time. A George Soros, on the other hand, is typically looking at mispricing opportunities for quick entry and exit. A trader is normally not overly bothered about the long term prospects and fundamental strengths of the company and tends to exit the position once the target is achieved.
