A Life of Happiness and Fulfillment

Written 9 months ago
I watched the first three weeks of lecture videos and decided to drop it and not to waste any more time on it. Many statements given in the course are not convincing, or at least not presented in a convincing way, and therefore the conclusions do not appeal to me at all and I do not think I will become any more happier after I finish this course.

I will just give two examples.

An experiment mentioned in the video is about a baby monkey separated from its mother deciding which fake "mother" it would like to stay with. One is a metal structure with food while the other is a cushion without food. The study found that the monkey spent most of its time with the latter one. Of course! If I were a monkey I would undoubtedly make the same choice. Even as a baby, a monkey does not need to have food all the time! Who, or what animal, does not want to stay comfortable? I feel that this study is really boring and the conclusion "the baby monkey needs love" is just nonsense.

Another statement made in the lecture is like "people who are self-avoidant have lower job satisfaction". What on earth does this imply? Well, "having low job satisfaction" probably means "less" happiness but is that necessarily a bad thing? The job simply sucks and I cannot even complain about it?

And the "chasing superior" and "become successful" part is also very dubious. I believe that there are tons of counterexamples and counterarguments for that.

After these I think I would rather spend time on a well structured, well reasoned psychology or philosophy course than on this one.
