Biology & Traits: Performance Prediction – A Personality Guide By Jordan B. Peterson

In this lecture, Jordan discusses the hard problems of predicting performance: academic, industrial, artistic, and entrepreneurial; the practical application of such prediction in business and other situations; and the enormous economic worth of accurate forecast.

Key Points

 Rather than attempting to change your temperament, match your career to it. Although considerable adjustment is possible, the five personality traits and IQ are strongly influenced by biological factors (particularly in environments where differences are allowed to flourish).

  • Intelligence (as evaluated by psychometric tests, IQ) is the best predictor of achievement in complicated, ever-changing circumstances.
  • Conscientiousness is the best predictor, especially in the military, school, and conservative enterprises. Disagreeable people are better disciplinarians and negotiators than agreeable people (within reasonable bounds).
  • Open people are artistic, creative, and entrepreneurial. Extraverts are socially adept. Introverts thrive alone. People with less neuroticism have a higher stress tolerance (but maybe less sensitive to real signs of danger).
  • When there are obvious dissimilarities and where the ability to anticipate achievement would at least be useful in performance at the workplace.

However, the failure rate in the first year, for example, is now very high; you could argue that this is a perfectly reasonable price to pay for open admittance and the opportunity to give everyone a chance. But you could also say, Well, that’s a waste of time for people who flunk their first year of college or university. It’s not an enjoyable experience for them. It’s incredibly expensive in terms of time, effort, and resources. And perhaps it would have been better for them and society if they had been able to discern whether they possessed two sets of attributes that were required to boost their chances of success.

There’s the practical utility of potentially offering to schools, universities, and workplaces, in general, the possibility of picking people with a higher than average chance of success. It’s much more problematic, for instance, if you’re choosing not so many entry-level personnel in a company since you may persuade yourself that you’re more interested in bringing in more individuals and letting them fail or succeed in the job.

As you flatten out the sociocultural environment, suppose you take everyone and provide them with optimal nutrition and optimal access to information, which you’ve pretty much done, by the way, with a computer, right, because how do you give someone more access to information than to provide them with a Web-enabled computer?

Wow again this should be mandatory for school leavers, what value can you add and have some pride in what you do. Also, I love how he explores the workplace dynamics and acknowledges work distribution.
