Default Jordan Peterson - Get a damn hoover, ey.

This guy is the best guy. There are so many videos I could post, but that is just the one I am watching now.



Thoughts on the guy?

He's mesmerizing. On Sam Harris' podcast he was explaining why he doesn't necessarily believe that moral truth and provable truth are the same thing. To my mind, what he was arguing was on the surface indefensible and ridiculous but he frames up why he believes what he does so well you're pretty much forced to take it into consideration if you're intellectually honest.

In your clip, what he's saying is real basic common sense but it's not just the what it's the why.

Gotta love them self help seminars.

I'll watch a few more vids to get a feel about him but that's the vibe I get from the first view minutes of the video in the OP.

He deals with morality, theology, linguistics, and runs through ideas like a fractal unfolding.

basically this. really dug the stuff he did with Sam. even when it's just 2 hours of them arguing over something simple.

The gender-neutral pronoun business was a huge story in Canada. Sine then, I've followed Peterson closely. I'll be applying to U of T this year; might even take a course with him.

That's cool. I listened to him talk about gender neutral language.

I listened to a few minutes and felt like I was listening to Tony Robbins with a Canadian accent.

I had that impression initially, watched another video and still felt exactly the same way. I feel like he wastes a lot of time either saying absolutely nothing, devolving into anecdotal and distracting tangents, or putting very straightforward ideas across from what I've seen so far.

So what's his best one, gents?

Idk man, I feel like people wouldn't be as hot on this guy's genius if they read transcripts of what he says instead of listening to him. "I don't understand that" is not a convincing argument, even if you might sway some people by repeating it several hundred times, Donal--I mean Jordan. I could see debating him being interesting.
