Jordan Peterson in Beast Mode

For those with a little time on their hands, listen to Professor Peterson being interviewed by a British self-proclaimed feminist.

The man is a beast; articulate, wise, competent, brave, humble.

Enjoy

I've read two of his books Tony, an incredible mind and a model for a balanced future. Although he's an Atheist he has a total grip on the Christian faith. Peterson, Hill and Tolle, if you 'get' what these guys put forward your life changes for the better.

Only yesterday I had a little girl (yr3) come to class really upset after being bullied in the playground, using Tolle's and Peterson's philosophy I had her turned around and happy in a few minutes. These guys are powerful minds with a consciousness way beyond average folks.

Time well spent listening to Dr Peterson.

Agreed - i have watched many of his youtube videos and there is a wealth of information and understanding to be gained from his insights !

I think i like that he is accidentally rather than deliberately famous. He opposed something fundamentally stupid in an articulate way and he naturally drew attention, rather than seeking it out.

I listened to his Joe Rogan conversation and his Richard Fidler one and he admits, he is still trying to navigate the fame and he has been wrong on a few things...he just says "i was wrong".

Wait until you hear about his crazy all meat diet (he and his sick daughter)

Jeez that killed the morning!

Have watched a few of his videos now. Very tactful in his approach, very balanced, and clearly knowledgeable when it comes to facts.

TBH I don't think he's said anything earth shattering. A lot of what I see resonates as it is similar my own beliefs. If you boil it all down, in almost all of his interviews it is someone trying to argue that an issue is either black or white, with him saying hold up... it's not that simple.

A bit of real world problem solving, and actually thinking through possible implications rather than rolling what sounds good in the moment.

His discussions on the archetypes embedded in old stories is excellent.

Their application of knowledge is impressive

Dont forget though that he is now an entertainer with an opinion/position (that is still being developed) partly designed to cement his position in the burgeoning opinion artist industry.

He is, currently, in the same industry as the interviewer...they need each other to survive (in this industry). He can certainly survive in academia too.

Jimmy I think most good teachers with sufficient experience have developed the important skill of storytelling, as a way to engage with the audience. You can see the passion in his classroom lectures.

It will be interesting to watch his progress.
