Jordan Peterson: “There was plenty of motivation to take me out. It just didn't work"

  • To be honest, she actually held her own.

  • Luckily I watched the interview of Dr. Jordan Peterson by Joe Rogan before seeing this interview by GQ. To know what he endured prior to this interview yields even more respect for his composure. I don't necessarily agree with everything he says, but I appreciate his composure and the nomenclature he provide us for the things we are observing and experiencing today in social psychology is profoundly valuable. Well done, sir!

  • An overview of the first 20min > She looked quite aggressive from the start, definitely nervous or intimidated. Dr Peterson comes off strong, quietly confident, and a little more assertive than usual, perhaps provoked or indicative of someone well versed in their perspective field. She aligned herself with him on several occasions, dare i say, an unconscious submissive plea for him deescalate the onslaught. It was rather brutal a little hard to watch him dismantle and debunk her narrative with little resistance, equating it as almost predatory. I do enjoy watching him work. But hey, what do i know, I'm just a dumb welder.

  • As with most of these types of interviews, you can tell she's not trying to listen to or understand what he's saying, she's waiting to speak. She has her agenda and is simply asking... or attempting to ask the right questions so she can then get to open fire. The first few minutes of this are the best example... when he manages to dodge the minefield of male vs female by focusing on the positive messages of his book/philosophy she simply asks it flat out in a way that is unavoidable. The VERY FIRST question in fact puts him in the defensive... "what are you selling?" She changes the subject when he has her cornered and shoots off loaded questions like "would you be less angry if you weren't on Twitter" ? What a joke this "interview" is.

  • Once a psychologist said "there are two types of people 1- are data driven i.e they look at the data and would have a conclusion based on the data. 2- are the opposite of the first type i.e they already have a conclusion and already made up in their mind, they only read into the data what goes with what they already decided on, the selectively choose the data that suits their agenda and ignore the others. When I look at this video I see both type of people one who says what the data says and the other only choose the data that agreed with what they want the data to say.

  • In discussing men in women dominated fields, she reports them as feeling the same exclusion. It is a very different exclusion; men are treated as predators whereas women are treated as G.I. Janes. People are taught to be weary of men and humble to women. These are very different.

He tells her you probably think its a social constuct. She says nope i dont think that, but yeah i think that mostly. What a dumb host.

  • They are fighting against anything what family stands for, by destroying marriage through hypersexualization at young age (tv, social media, internet), of course feminism, equality etc. It's all a big lie. In the movies it seems that the hero is the one who takes revenge etc. we are not been taught of the idea of forgiveness even if we heard about it it's just far to say it's part of our character. The human nature tend to choose what is not good, that's why it's so dangerous to eliminate moral standards and replace it with tolerance which is built rather on feelings than facts. That also means that It's possible to justify almost everything because certain standards are eliminated. This evil society has given this mess a name: Freedom. That is actually very frustrating.

  • The funny thing is for the most part he was right about her conversation up until he put her on the spot about sharing herself. A couple of other funny things are that she a challenging and speaks to sometimes as if he wasn't well versed in the topics she brought up or hadn't herd the exact same questions before. Lastly the funny thing about her is she considers her self in opposition in most part to what he has taught. The reason why I bring this up is because, what better way to give yourself a name and boost your book? Like her example of the Pedro flag. I am surprised he didn't ask her if she has children. Lol she pointed out several times she is married. He held back from asking her questions about her husband. He seemed to me to have restrained himself from asking a lot of questions that would cause her to think. I did like when he placed hidden examples that she may have not noticed of why what she said didn't hold true. 1 interview should be enough because they always ask the same type of questions regarding same exact subjects. In attempts to catch him making a verbal mistake that may contradict he core beliefs. Lol

  • He points it right out. Who raised the children the women. Who went out to war? Men, society have been sacrificing themselves for women since the start yet we complain? I am happy I am a life where I have the option to stay at home with my children and my husband goes and works. I will always be thankful for that and he is always thankful for me to stay home with kids or does she think someone should be paid to raise her kids? Most people do now a days.

  • I won't say I always agree with Peterson. But I listen to this and it seems to me that as heated as it gets sometime, Peterson and The Interviewer are trying to be agreeable, and I'm more happy to see how the conversation goes when their views wind up becoming very similar from their discussion. I guess I just don't want that to be overshadowed by this gotcha game in politics.
