About: Jordan Peterson - Controversial Facts about IQ
I was enjoying these lectures, but after watching 3 (and especially this one, with the anecdotal statistical jargon) the pompousness became a little much ...
Why do the left not like Jordan Peterson. The guys knowlegde is helping so many.
Experiential/ wisdom intelligence vs analytical intelligence.
I think some commenters miss the part where JP justifies his argument quantitatively with statistics... Many people desperately want to believe that they can forge their own destinies with sheer willpower... This is simply not true. For example, regardless of willpower, I don't think it would be feasible for one to become a world-class physicist with a double-digit IQ.
while they are trying to define what intelligence is, someone live his life to the fullest....
while someone is trying to measure consciousness, someone live his life to the fullest....
while you going to college, and do a, b, c... someone have fun...
while you make your diploma someone makes 1,2,3 kids...
while you think you are intelligent you start to be sad...
while you think that you are in higher social class you started to be in lower social class..
while you discover nothing and you are nothing you are become nothing from something...
while you are become nothing you lose everything and you become 0
the top bunch are mostly awareness, the bottom bunch is conformity.
If you can’t explain it simply - you don’t understand it yourself. Logoemetos.
I don’t agree entirely that university only accepts intelligent people. So many rich people buy their way in.
“Emotional intelligence: which does NOT EXIST by the way!”
I have a copy of “emotional intelligence” by Daniel Goleman on my shelf, right next to a book by Jordan Peterson...
I have to choose my side..
But which one? 0.0
Tell me why third world countries where is no training or schools don't have intelligent geniuses
In an article posted on March 13, 2019, the average college IQ score is 100 in America.
I enjoy listening to JP and have learned so much from him. I disagree with his views on IQ, or how they are applied. My reasons are personal and observation.
Grade 4 I was tested and told I had a low IQ and was sent to special ed/IEP classes. I started acting out and was expelled. I really know how to piss off authority figures. After two weeks in my next school, I was taken out of the IEP classes/special ed classes and put into regular 4th-grade courses. 3 weeks after that I was placed into 5/6th-grade classes. I averaged a 3.8 GPA until 9th grade where I discovered weed/mushrooms. I realized I could learn more hanging out at Barnes&Noble for a few hours or staring at a particularly clever tree; than I could in school.
Point being, the IQ test was used to hinder my intelligence, stifle my expression and limit exploration of the world around me. Had I not rebelled so thoroughly I would have been mentally castrated based on an IQ test.
Dr Peterson sounds exactly like Rick & Morty 😄
what is the best, philosophy or science theories? you may not tell them apart but one deals with arguments for how reality works, the other deals with what will materialize as concrete science based on ideas suggestivly confirmed by selective observation and ad hoc of data.
Why does this man remind me of James McGill
Real science is in stark contradiction with ideological belief systems. Hence it is suppressed and attacked with violence*.
*violence is what politics does, directly or indirectly; ostensibly private institutions are also enforcing ideological doctrines
What constitutes success? Success is defined differently by different people at different stages of life. Does success really correlate with IQ? Personality, drive, salesmanship and opportunity factor in just as much or more. How does one assume that all the people in the room have IQ's of 120? Maybe some people with IQ's of 100 are highly motivated, and therefore achieve as much academic success as 120 IQ. Or people are there because it is expected of them. Universities accept those who have the money, the motivation and the expectation to get a degree. The ego prefers to claim the high IQ whether they have it or not. Also, very intelligent people can easily end up stuck in jobs that rob them of their potential. Sometimes high IQ makes it more difficult for people to succeed because you have less in common with other people. If a person is not strongly motivated by money, does it make them less intelligent?
