>>21527>I hate him for his books and lectures targeted at the average person yes, although i havent read his books - only watched reviews and all that.
I'm not really certain how to take this. I personally also watch reviews, but I've never considered myself as having an informed opinion about the subject matter just because I listened to someone else talk about it. Not saying that's wrong, it just didn't occur to me that people do this.>Humans are not that predictable.
Really depends on what you're testing. For example, any human, anywhere, will react the exact same to a snake making a striking motion, even if there's a plane of glass separating the person from the snake. It's not a conscious response, there is no "There is a snake, the snake is striking, I will back away from the snake." It is physically impossible for a human to prevent themselves from going back because the circuits that activate that reflex occur before the conscious mind has even registered a snake is moving.
As far as mass behavior, maybe you have a point about history, but Jordan Peterson from various comments also believes that history is a very potent source of information for behavior and how people operate, I don't know where you got the idea that he completely dismisses it.
