In this lecture, I talk about the Big Five trait agreeableness, which is the dimension of the care system, in Jaak Panksepp's terminology. It can be construed as cooperation vs competition, or compliance vs non-compliance, or tender-mindedness vs tough-mindedness. It is also an important determinant of political belief, being the trait most associated with the body of ideas that has come to be known as politically correct.
Agreeable people tend to view the political world as innocent infant vs reptilian predator. Perhaps this is good for you (although probably not) if you are placed in the innocent infant category, but it is not so good if you are deemed reptilian predator :)

@Bman Facts versus emotions. Males have less need to be agreeable if the desired results is a logical solution. The common knowledge of older men is that females desire the back and forth argument for her EMOTIONAL NEEDS and she gets angry if her husband gives the solution.

@Sebastien Bolduc Women are obviously more emotionally disagreeable, but perhaps more CONVINCEABLE. Jordan even teaches about Yin chaos (female) and Yang order (male). Asking for a raise = strength, risk, responsibility and value, not agreeableness.

@Sebax Truthful people admit that females live off of 'emotional disagreement.' Healthy females might be more 'CONVINCEABLE' eventually after their long emotional debate (because facts should win over opinion). In order to get female approval, Jordan claims that females are more agreeable.

@Sebax he does point out, to some extent, that the temperamental differences between orderly and chaotic personalities are united through agreeableness. It's the balance between the 2, and the place one should wish to find themselves. That is not to be confused with the agreeable personalities he mentions at the beginning of the lecture btw. The example he gave being conservatives being more polite in agreeableness while liberal minded individuals are more compassionate in agreeableness. Both compliment one another when that common ground has been established. It's that middle ground of agreeableness that units these opposite spectrums. A civility of co-existence, so-to-speak, on how we conduct ourselves with others. And if you go further into what he is talking about this can also apply to the differences between the sexes, male and female. Both compliment their coexistence once that middle ground has been established. However, he does point out that what we're witnessing now with the PC culture are 2 extremes of the spectrums, far left and right (Chaos and Order). There's no longer a middle ground of agreeableness between the 2.

I think my agreeableness is one of the primary reasons I've remained employed with the same company through the recession in 2008, through a merger, then all the way thru Covid. I've seen some people who were let go try to apply for a different position with the company we spun off, if we saw anyone who we remembered being difficult to work with, their resumes went straight into the garbage. Getting along with people matters, more so than job skills to an extent. You can train people, but you can't change their personalities.

I'm 90% in Agreeableness, but I will say that this pandemic really helped me be more Disagreeable, letting go of being judged/not liked. My views weren't aligned with those of the majority, things like not wearing a mask, having a more right leaning political view (even though all my personality traits point to that of liberal tendencies the pandemic radically shifted my political views too) and I even grew out my stray chin hairs as an experiment and ended up keeping them. It's not easy standing out in a crowd of similarities, I don't like attention and I like everyone to get along but my inner moral compass became more important than social consensus and it's really helped me be more Disagreeable. I also have good friends who encourage me to be more Disagreeable with them, very grateful for such emotionally intelligent and aware people who question my "Yes" and encourage me to say "No".

I took to heart the advice on the job of a parent and discussed it with my better half. We agreed upon an way to apply it IRL. Now, 3 years later I'm absolutely positive that our 5yo is welcomed everywhere and has many play dates in part because of that approach. He's a cheeky little boy with a sense of humor that seems to charm people around him. Exactly what I could only hope he would become (thus far). We're absolutely blessed that way. TY

24:43 "It's easy for people to confuse confidence for competence". I had never noticed that concept; I love how powerful these lectures are; power-charged with insights of knowledge like a mine field. Dr Peterson is such a great teacher. I'm so thankful that he had the initiative to record and and upload these lectures.

Confusing confidence for competence allows a con man (that's short for "confidence", by the way) to trick the unsuspecting. If you act like you know what you're doing, people will buy it.

@Veselin Raychev I will eventually read that, but this just appears banal to me when someone says everything that the other side, that they are not a part of, is ENTIRELY wrong. I said that most of the book (basic economics) made sense to me, not all of it. Some analysis of his i found to have sensible criticisms. For example "only profits can lead to innovation" well the computers and the internet were initially developed by the R&D department of MIT which was funded by the state (the most relevant innovation of our time). Another: He criticised the UK, Australia and some other countries' free healthcare by saying that they have more 20 percent of their patients in waiting for elective surgeries and in the US, the percentage is in single digit. Well, if the patient can't even afford the surgery why would that person even be on the waiting list?? This is not a valid criticism of their free healthcare. Now I would suggest you to be sceptical of the things you read and take help from the other side (the left themselves) for doing so. READ THEIR TEXTS YOURSELF! begin with Consequences of Capitalism by Chomsky and Waterstone. they don't talk about the old and flaws ideas of the left here just the accurate ones. I finished 1st chapter two days ago

@Veselin Raychev so i've been reading thomas sowell (his basic economics) most part of it makes sense. At one point he talks about how minimum wages creates unemployment, giving reasonable causes for it but being introduced to the leftist atmosphere I researched the unemployment statistics of highly waged countries to try to have a counter argument but then in the very next chapter he explains how unemployment statistics can be misleading. It blew my mind! Nevertheless, there are still pretty good arguments from the left which disproves his reasoning for favouring a capitalist economy of which counterarguments I have yet to come across.

I really appreciated this video as I've come to realize I am highly agreeable (to my detriment). At the very end of this video Dr. Peterson states that it would be useful to investigate the viewpoints of people with opposing views. Now that is something that I can do. It's a start anyway.... I'm a single mom raising 2 boys and I've come to realize that I've got a responsibility to toughen up and be the parent and teach them basic things like how to clean their room, take the trash out etc. By my doing everything for them really isn't doing them any favors in the long term if I'm quietly teaching them how to get everyone else to do their work for them.

I literally laughed at 'disagreeable people won't do a thing they don't want to do' -- because I got 88/100 on the test for disagreeableness, and I knew it beforehand, and I do things I don't want to do ... but not often and I have to really like you and care for you or have a good reason to do so... I have things I need to get done and my day is planned out and I don't want to be interrupted, so unless you're my best friend, my husband, my mother, or my cat, I do not like to be interrupted and do things I don't want to do.

I have just come across this video for the first time, although i am quite aware of Jordan Peterson and have watched many of his lectures with admiration. At roughly twenty eight minutes, he mentions the correlation between "rough and tumble" play and the effect of regulating aggresive behaviour, i wonder if he has hit upon the reasoning behind single mother parenting of boys possibly leading to crime in later life. I don,t mean this in a disrepective way to single mothers, but purely as an honest comment based on information raised elsewhere on the internet with allegations towards this.

Interesting. I’ve been watching these lectures to expand my knowledge about personality (and because I’m about to begin teaching and JP is a well-versed orator), but the rough and tumble play bit is something I can talk about in a review paper I’m working on. Always cool when the stuff I do late at night to relax is actually productive for my work! In the outside chance anyone is curious, my lab’s theoretical position is that individual differences in the ability to control attention, and not necessarily working memory capacity (WMC) or fluid intelligence (Gf), are the primary driver of individual differences in cognition more broadly and therefore possibly the fundamental marker of cognitive ability. We think that WMC and Gf are important but that attention control is broader, and mediates (explains) the strong relationship between WMC and Gf (which can be thought of, roughly speaking, as involving the ability to maintain goal-directed information and disengage from irrelevant information, respectively, whereas attention control is involved in both). The review paper will cover several areas of research that have emphasized the role of WMC in applied settings (such as automation, education, testing, training, policing, psychopathology, sports) and argue instead that attention control can be as important if not more so in these domains, so researchers ought to invest more to study attention control’s role in these domains. As part of the education and/or training section, we can mention the part about how engaging in “safe” roughhousing in toddlers may improve cognitive ability (specifically inhibition as Peterson & Flanders, 2015 argue, which is basically attention control) and therefore might be an alternative remediation strategy and overall better approach to improving future academic achievement in children than these ill-fated efforts to train working memory capacity/intelligence. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like rough and tumble play can help a student once they’re school-aged, but at least we can advocate for awareness in parents engaging in this type of play as something they can do to socialize their child, curb aggressive and antisocial behavior, and, most relevant to our manuscript, potentially improve attentional abilities and help reduce the chances of the child developing ADHD and similar issues.

The best part of this lecture is at the end when JBP tells us to try to learn how to use the traits that are opposite to our nature and find a role that matches our natural inclinations. Fill in the gaps in your personality. Also, do this with your choice of partner. Find someone that has some of the opposing traits but not too extreme as to lead to irreconcilable differences.

Dr. Peterson, In the discussion of standard deviation modeled overlapping normal distributions, a graphic representation in your slides would be helpful (perhaps for a future iteration of this course). I think aesthetic representations could be added post hoc to your videos, as well. That would possibly further enhance the experience for your viewership!

Dude Jordan is a fucking hero. Not only is he so carefully articulate and with every word, he's able to cover every perspective base describing his points. I also don't understand why people aren't more interested in personality. It's blatantly obvious that our beliefs and paradigms of the world determine how we will act. It's the ultimate predictor/measure of how people think and act. It just intrigues me, I love this shit so much

Dude, I have first-hand seen rooms filled with desks occupied by middle-aged women who were highly agreeable and conscientious. My own mother is like this, but with time she’s learned ways to get what she wants. It basically boils down to coming across as so cooperative and hard-working that the dominant, disagreeable individuals nearly fight eachother over the right to hold your leash. It’s viciously manipulative, but it’s a useful roundabout way of remaining agreeable while still getting things to work in your favor.

I already watched this lecture in the past but can't wait to watch this new version. I love his lectures about The Big 5. Amazing stuff to understand other people and yourself better. Thank you Professor Peterson

Wow, what a lecture! Totally different from the last one on the same topic. I don't know if these videos should be mandatory in schools but at least they should be made available to all school students. This information really helps to make better decisions in life. I wish I had known about these things earlier in life

Wow, I can't believe how good of a professor he is and how interesting this stuff is. I'm studying environmental sciences, I just finished my 2nd year, and I hate university, it's a spanish university, so imagine how horrible it is. I think I love science, and definitely I feel the burden of the environment, but this lecture has blown my mind away. I would love to be there and work on this as much as I love environmental sciences. I guess I really love a lot of different things, even if I gotta choose a single one to build a career, but whatever the case is, this lecture has been fantastic

Dr Peterson, I felt compelled to write this comment to thank you. You came to my attention, like many others, through your free speech battles, but this series and your other philosophical work has given me profound insight into my psyche and given me tools and ideas to work on for my own betterment. While I'm grateful for this, what I really grateful for is giving me the framework to help someone else, someone who I care very deeply about and love very much, my partner. She has suffered with depression since she was in her mid teens and had a quite turbulent child hood. In the past when she would have a bad time or hit a low point I could be there for her as at best a comfort, which of course has value, but thanks to the lessons I have learned from your lectures I have been able to talk to her about her feelings. We did what you advocate and spoke the truth and see what happened. What happened was we had an intense but deeply gratifying conversation. One that didn't just sooth her, but one I think will help her grow, and in that process I felt I have grown and our relationship has become stronger. She will be seeing a counsellor soon but I walked her through the big 5 attributes and suggested some actions from the past authoring suite and she took to the ideas really well. She has a lot of baggage from her past, so facing these will be tough, but she saw the value in doing it. So I wanted to thank you for giving me the tools to sort myself out, but also help my partner sort herself out.

Agreeableness is a devastating character trait. In a world that's inherently antagonistic, adversarial and predatory, an overly disagreeable person can still succeed. An agreeable one, even one with great potential, has no hope in hell. Unless a parental or mentor figure intervenes at an early stage, they can essentially kiss their life goodbye. This lecture and Peterson's Ted Talk on Potential are his two most important and potentially transformative videos.

Not every profession in this world is competitive. A very agreeable person is likely to be a great nurse, for example.

Fair points. I believe both agreeableness and disagreeableness are equally devastating personality traits. The most disagreeable amongst us are at war with everyone around them and will eventually end up - like Peterson said - in prison. And I believe an overly agreeable person can still succeed. Not so easily in a competitive career job, sure, but are not rich relationships, a peaceful family life, less stress, better health and a clear conscience forms of success too?

I'm definitely going to have to say this lecture has allowed me to put the pieces together and see the world in a new light, because I know people that the example fits perfectly, and I don't think I've ever realized before quite why some people just vacuum up additional work and responsibility until the crash and burn before. Not to mention that propensities seem to have almost their own kind of epigenetics, that you can train something that doesn't come naturally to you until that methyl group just pops off and the whole circuit is manifested. That's probably not how it actually works, but it might be a useful metaphor?

I am so glad to hear someone say that medicated boys (some girls) is a bad idea and that the school system is not built for them... I went through my whole secondary school being medicated with ritalin and it turned me into a potatoe. I stopped taking it for my exams and its like I woke up and was noticing everything. It took me a while to learn how to manage my ADHD without medication but it is possible and I feel like I can work better than most of my colleagues!

Ive always been an agreeable person. Ive leaned towards compromise avoidance of conflict in most situations especially in romantic relationships. what ive realised is that my ageeableness that i viewed as a positive trait has frustrated after having a dad i was in fear of so i learned to value attachment over authenticity .I Learned early on that to appease my controlling often violent father i had to let go of my own personality ( authenticity) which i had erroneously believed was the reason for his unpredicibility and to survive id become agreeable thereby learning to smooth the water over consistently.... problems arose later in life when i felt a level my agreeableness often contained a level of being disengenousness to others out of fear of any conflict

I've always had a strange temperament. I would describe it like a non-newtonian fluid. I've a very easy going person, but as soon as a certain limit it hit, I suddenly change. For example. My mom said that when I was new to day care, this one time she observed that some kid was following me around. Whenever I played with a toy for a bit, he'd come over and take the toy from me. I was seemingly unphased and just walked away like nothing happen, found a new toy and started to play again. She said she was just watching because she was still learning how I interacted with other children, and after several instances of this other kid taking my toys, I suddenly gripped the last toy as the other child attempted to take it from me, and pushed him down. When I was in my teens, my mom would tell me I need to stop letting people walk all over me and better assert my opinions. I told her that other people's opinions generally don't bother me. I find that most people are generally well meaning and I let most annoyances slide because other people are different than me and it's not worth bothering other people who won't like my opinions. But if I feel like someone's opinions are regularly causing me grief, I will let them know of my disagreement, and if no progress or good faith action is taken to make compromise, I will suddenly stand my ground and give no room for negotiations within what's reasonable. This extremely rarely occurs. Another example. I am introverted, it is mentally and emotionally exhausting to "hang out" with most people. But even if I do not find what other people are doing is fun, I do find it fun to watch them have fun. As much as it tires me, I enjoy being around people being merry. Another thing that I find different about myself is I can ignore crying babies quite well as long as the cry does not indicate something is wrong. Babies have different cries for different things and sometimes they just cry. I can generally identify these different cries. I've just always found it easy to just block those out. But if there is anything in their cry that indicates something is wrong, it becomes my absolute attention. Everyone that I know can't ignore crying babies at all. They'll get so worked up and annoyed. Of course I'm not ignoring a child that I am actively responsible for, but I don't have any children of my own, so the children I'm around are almost always someone else's current responsibility.

Personal note: 22:25 Although being agreeable might make empathising easier, it must never mean that you don't stand up for yourself when you know you need to. I've been in that place before where I live outwardly by orienting myself towards others that I don't think about myself whilst I'm empathising. It makes empathising easier, but you never want to be in a position where you're so outwardly oriented that you DON'T KNOW whether your decisions - as a result of your empathy towards the other person - will be good or bad. You must know what you want, which is another way of saying you must know how your decisions will affect your in the short, medium and long run.
