  1. You have to admire how respectful and calm Jordan remains throughout this interview even as the interviewer repeatedly makes inflammatory, ridiculous judgments about what he is saying and what she interprets to be the meaning behind his words.

  2. That interviewer is so focused on trying to catch Peterson in a "gotcha" moment she's totally oblivious of what he's saying. I doubt she has the ability to comprehend that anything could be more complex than a binary all or nothing equation.

  3. only a serious mysoginist of the worst order. Plays with his wedding ring to think of his wife's (i.e. a womans) advice when he starts to get angry.

  4. The interviewer made herself look like a complete moron there – can't really tell whether she was genuinely stupid or just trying to whip up some controversy by essentially ignoring his perfectly valid points and misstating them back to him every 5 seconds.

  5. 7.2 million views and counting.

    That must be channel 4's most watched video to date.

    I imagine the fact that C4News' most popular video is also catastrophic for its credibility is not lost on the editors, who undoubtedly wanted to delete it weeks ago but knew how that would have looked.

    Now they face the reality that their worst, most embarrassing moment is also the most watched

  6. An embarrassing interview with the interviewer constantly putting words in his mouth and insisting on her own interpretation of what he believes rather than asking for clarification. Kudos for Dr. Peterson for keeping his cool and answering intelligently and refusing to be misquoted or bullied. I guess I'll be reading his book.

  7. On IQ Peterson lacks correct data. Men avg IQ measures 2..3 points higher which is insignificant compared to the effect of variance. Men (like males of other species) have higher variance on all biological traits, including IQ. This means that much greater % of idiots and geniuses are male.

    Social ramifications are huge in crime and high achievement.

    In free (non violent) society men sould occupy almost all positions of higher management, specialist and professions.

  8. The cow was stuck with her written notes which were full of deliberate missrepresentation. Peterson called her for it and wiped the floor with her.

  9. I think the interview was great from both sides. Her strawmaning his arent allowed him to explain his point of view in various ways. She threw all she could to paint him in a bad light but he answered quite well.

  10. Wow, that Lobster/serotonin thing really blew up my mind!

    Hierarchical social organizations are mandatory due to our fundamental brain chemistry and function. It’s natural to compete and seek higher social position! That brings forth true happiness!

    Wow. Goes so against modern western dogmas! I love it.

  11. "I'm only talking to young men in so far as that's who has been showing up" "I was not aiming this message at young men it just sorta turned out that way" how many qualifiers to that statement do u need? U just ignore all the statements leading up to that ? Cherry picking the one u want. I honestly do not know how u can ignore the lead in to that.

  12. We can agree to disagree on that point I guess. Also it might make u happy to know that since the book has come out the audience has become 60 40 male to female so apparently the fact that you tube is mostly male must have been playing a large role in the gender divide. I wish u would dig a little deeper u will hear his actual arguments not squeezed into the television time constraints. Nice talking to you

  13. Sry for the past comment but-Cathy missed the chance to get some great real advice from this person.not only that she irritated the person who solves others peoples irritation problems. how worse can u be

  14. she is sooooo boring !!!!! he should of had a better interviewer ,, thats how we distribute the intelligence ?? she sholf be making shoes not interviewing smart people does not have a clue of what he is talking about.

  15. Cathy, you’re getting paid 9% less because you can’t even understand what people are saying in plain English sitting right in front of you!!!
