My friend recently told me about a website called selfauthoring.com – it’s essentially a website where you can journal about your past, present and future in great detail based on some questions. I am yet to take the self-examination but look forward to doing so.
The creator is a guy named Jordan Peterson. He is currently the professor of psychology at the University of Toronto in Canada. Peterson is highly academic and his background makes him a credible source. You can check out his background and education here. Along with the self-authoring suite you gain access to a journal written by Peterson. Here is an excerpt I found particularly interesting:
The first time I heard of Peterson was on Joe Rogan’s podcast (JRE), although I didn’t think much of him because usually I just listen to Rogan’s podcast for entertainment rather than education.
Once my friend had bought the self authoring examination for the both of us, I was curious to find out more about the creator. I watched his ted talk where he talks about human potential and the importance of having interests and meaning in our lives. It blew my mind. It was one of those refreshing ted talks. It’s one I’ll watch again from time to time.
Peterson is very opinionated. He recently caused an outcry in the LBGTQ community because he slammed the idea of gender neutral pronouns. Aside from that, he seems like a pretty awesome person. I’d recommend having a look at his videos. I think he’s a great storyteller and definitely wouldn’t call him ‘boring’.
