Did you know that a theory likening humans to lobsters exist? This is only one of many controversial ideas from Jordan B. Peterson. The Canadian clinical psychologist expounded the theory in the book 12 Rules for Life. Each chapter focuses on various rules, starting with "Stand up straight with your shoulders back". The chapter used the social structure of lobsters which is held together by territoriality and displays of dominance. In these hierarchies, lobsters that dominate have more authoritative body language. Contrarily, the weaker ones try to display inferiority. The self-help book author argued that humans have are nowhere different, saying that our behaviors dictate our hierarchies.
Actually, some of his followers on Reddit refer to themselves as Lobsters. Peterson is also known to be a non-believer of White privilege. Albeit known because his controversial ideas, a few Jordan Peterson books are well-received. Aside from 12 Rules of Life, the right-wing professor also wrote Maps of Meaning. Published back in 1999, it is one of the psychology books that tackle archetype, meaning, and behaviorism.
