Stanford University Emeritus Professor John Krumboltz on Learning and his life journey
Dr. Krumboltz is a specialist in counseling psychology. He helps counselors learn how to help their clients take actions to create more satisfying lives for themselves. His research covers tracing the roots of academic, career, and personal problems, as well as studying the emotional outcomes of learning experiences, and the use of multimedia in simulating occupational activities. Dr. Krumboltz is also a leader in the theory of career counseling. His social learning theory postulates that career transitions result from an uncountable number of learning experiences made possible by both planned and unplanned encounters with the people, institutions, and events in each person's particular environment.
In this interview, Professor Krumboltz talks about his goal to live to 100 years old. Professor Krumboltz talks about our life and how short it is and how we will all die, while we are alive let's have fun.
He walks us through his experience in how everything is connected, his thoughts on giving advice to parents about children and their goals and careers and goes into various topics like artificial intelligence. Dr. Krumboltz talks about "the lecture method" in college and how it is bad.
Professor Krumboltz, one of the people who coined the term from his book "Fail Fast, Fail Often”, talks about the topic and what it means. Its the fear of failure that is the biggest hindrance.
What is someone doesn’t like you? So what, it isn’t a big deal.
