In this video author (Jordan peterson) claimed he doesn't believe Self esteem. Honestly I can't understand what exactly he means with that (maybe because I am not English speaker).
This is the way I look at self esteem and please correct me if that's not right way to look at it, and if thats what JP says one shouldn't do:
This is what I call self esteem and how I look at it: I try to objectively evaluate myself or my capabilities, mistakes I did and didn't etc, and then based on that it depends whether I think well/highly of myself, or if I might like myself or not in the course of time. In some cases if I did very well say on learning my self esteem will remain high in that direction. e.g. completed higher education with good grades (BSc,MSc,etc).
Is JP saying this is not the way to look at it?
