    Good advice. But. You should check U.S. News & World Report, Top 50 Careers. Why spend years & huge $ for a degree in a very depressing career, that pays miserably? Help people & earn big $ so YOU will be happier by choosing a good paying career, or even a job.

    Psych is a relatively poor paying career. People don't much change, and you NEED money. 22 years in this field & I wish I'd chosen Physical Therapist or stayed in Plumbing when I made twice as much and had job satisfaction when stuff I fixed did not leak and customers were very satisfied.

    Love JP. But, this career sucks. I was warned. But, I didn't listen…either.

    People are laughing at him when he warns them to go into business if they want to make money. Tons of crap colleges puke out "counselors" which drives down wages and lowers quality.

    Think: Do I want to retire by age XYZ? Is there a better career or job to get there? Do I really want a psych career?

    Life satisfaction does NOT come from your job. Esp this job. Nearly every client you have is going to tell you their tragedy. It will embitter your soul when you realize how cruel life is and there's norhing you or anyone else can do to stop that. It's as old as human history.

    Life ain't fair. It ain't going to be. It's a tragedy. It always will be.

    He's warning you. But, you are going to do whatever you are going to do.

    I'm probably going to study the sciences in undergrad school, mainly Physics. Because as much as I'm interested in psychology, a science degree might be a better bet for me if I work hard enough, and due to my interest in psychology I can make time to read the books Mr. Peterson recommends.
    Let's see how this will work out for me.

    1. Have A's all throughout University, even in lower years cuz it can be competitive.
    2. Take the Psychology Graduate Record Exam, take it and send it to them if applying anyways.
    3. As a psychologist you have to write all the time. Think about it, writing is the most difficult part of it: writing ability determines research productivity.
    4. Apply to every single place in graduate school you can get to. Make the application personal, give the supervisor excuses not to take you…
    5. If you get accepted, first go to find out if you like your supervisor, if you think you can get along with them.

    Does anybody has the moment when he says to a student that there's no point of answering her question, because she's not listening?

    Jordan really red pills young people on how much hard work is involved in college and in adult life.

    Much appreciated.

    After finally coming to terms with it, it’s actuality pretty annoying hearing people my age complain about hard work and give into lazy ideologies like Marxism lol.

    Cutting out the time you waste and replacing it with productivity can make all the difference for your success.
