Jordan Peterson is a world-renowned clinical psychologist, public speaker, author, and social commentator. Belonging to Canada, professor Peterson has been known for the multiple controversies related to his comments on specific cultural, social, and political issues. As the author of several books and international publications, he has generated an enviable net worth throughout his career.

Jorden B Peterson was born in Alberta, Canada, in 1962. His father was a teacher, and his mother was a librarian at a regional college. As he grew up in a literary household, Peterson enjoyed reading several famous authors, such as Aldous Huxley and George Orwell, from an early age. He completed his high school at Fairview High School in 1979 and moved to Grande Prairie Regional College to pursue a degree in English literature and political science. Jorden later entered the University of Alberta, where he ended up with another degree in political science.

To develop a sound understanding of some thematic events that took place before his birth and the underlying factors triggering them, Jorden Peterson traveled to Europe. During this quest, he discovered and studied the psychological origins of the Cold War and European totalitarianism in the 20th century. This quest sparked his interest in psychology and forced him to return to the University of Alberta to study the subject in detail. Jorden received a B.A. degree in psychology in 1984, after which he went to McGill University in Montreal to begin his Ph.D.

Jordan Peterson began teaching psychology as an associate professor at Harvard University in 1993. He conducted a great part of his research during this tenure until 1998, when he returned to the University of Toronto to work as a full-time professor. As a psychologist, Peterson mainly focused on the psychology of ideological and religious beliefs. Apart from teaching, he also offers psychological assistance and conducts clinical sessions to help needy individuals. Currently, he is serving as a faculty member in the psychology department at a Toronto-based university.
