Jordan was born June 12, 1962 in Edmonton, Canada and since relatively early age began showing interest in psychology and politics. Peterson got his B.A. degree in psychology at the University of Alberta in 1984 and continued his studies until he achieved a Ph.D. in clinical psychology. Investing in the education paid off. He eventually secured a job at the prestigious Harvard University.

He was successful and rich but his net worth was nowhere near it’s current height. In 1999, Peterson published Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief but it was his second book 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos that caught a public attention. Especially since it provoked some of the liberal media into bashing it’s ideas. Needless to say it worked as a good promotion and his popularity and wealth skyrocketed.

As of now, Peterson is focusing on a new model of online university called Patreon. He decided to finance his idea though crowdfunding and amassed a sizable cash. The main goal is to compete with established universities teaching humanities with a strong liberal bias. He continues to appear in media and often shares his views on dating, modern society, and psychology disorders.
