This is another interesting piece of Jordan Peterson’s psychology lecture “Neuropsychology of Symbolic Representation” as part of his 2017 class “Maps of Meaning” at the University of Toronto. Dr. Peterson explains why we should choose a more balanced approach to life and not only strife for happiness – as it might lead to depression instead. He uses people suffering from manic disorder as an example and discusses the respective brain functions.

You can watch the complete lecture here:

Did you know that Dr. Peterson also developed an online program that helps you to analyze your past, to get your present life in order and to identify a more rewarding path for your future? It’s called “Self Authoring” https://goo.gl/5rHcWh
It’s not free, but it has been proven to work in studies performed with university students.
