Jordan Peterson: What Disagreeable People Are Good For

Professor Jordan B. Peterson is a Canadian clinical psychologist, teacher, and author. He is an expert on the history of totalitarian regimes in the 20th century, and a major proponent of the meaning of Biblical stories. He has led a movement composed of people searching for meaning based on personal responsibility.

One of the most interesting arguments he makes is that liberals and conservatives are like the human brain itself. The left side of the brain deals with order, AKA the known- and the right side of the brain deals with chaos, or the unknown.

Peterson claims that, like the two sides of the brain, liberals and conservatives need each other. This is, he claims, because each side is prone to seeing certain types of realities and blind to certain other types of realities. The result is that the two sides are first and foremost required to figure out a way to communicate peacefully. This is a novel and profound argument for free speech.

Peterson gives us a broader perspective of how humans function as a kind of superorganism. Looking on ourselves this way, we could look at anything that disrupts our ability to talk to our political opponents as a poison to society.

In the way that he has become famous for, Peterson also makes an argument for the usefulness, nay, the necessity, of personality types that we ordinarily think of as just selfish, or unpleasant.

Here, Peterson describes the utility of the disagreeable personality in society.
