    Today we have Dr. Jordan Peterson on the podcast. Dr. Peterson has taught mythology to lawyers, doctors and business people, consulted for the UN Secretary General, helped his clinical clients manage depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, and schizophrenia, served as an adviser to senior partners of major Canadian law firms, and lectured extensively in North America and Europe. With his students and colleagues at Harvard and the University of Toronto, Dr. Peterson has published over a hundred scientific papers. Dr. Peterson is also author of two books: Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief and 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, which is a #1 bestseller.

    In this wide-ranging conversation we discuss the following topics:

    – Why “learned irrelevance” is incredibly important

    – Why creativity requires keeping a childlike wonder

    – How hallucinogens clear the “doors of perception”

    – The “shared vulnerability” model of the creativity-mental illness connection

    – The neuroscience of openness to experience

    – The personality of personal correctness

    – The practical implications of gender differences

    – The function of the state in helping to make sure there is equality of individual expression

    – How agreeableness and conscientiousness orient us differently in the social world

    – The difference between pathological altruism and genuine compassion

    – The link between pathological altruism and vulnerable narcissism

    – The difference between responsibility and culpability

    – How to help people take responsibility and make their lives better
