This was my second course using this site, and with Professor Bloom, and once again it was great. I've genuinely learnt a lot, and I've found a new love for psychology I never would have found before.

the most pleasant and wonderful memory of this course was the narrators VOICE.
Listening to Prof Paul Bloom for the last 6 weeks - his teaching style - his explanations - the way he translates the concepts to the class leaves a memory of happiness in my mind. I would like to engage in more courses under his leadership.

Its a great course well paced and a decent introduction for someone who is completely new to the subject. All reading material is available for free. Lots of real examples, experiments and talks make the subject less theoretical and easy to consume. The videos which are animated are great shift from the conventional videos and interesting to watch. Loved it!!!

This course is awesome for having foundational knowledge in Psychology. Each concept has been explained with vivid examples. The favourite part for me were the assignment questions, you will be able to answer them accurately only upon having clear concepts. I loved this course. Looking forward to more courses on the different domains of psychology by Yale.

Brilliant introductory course- engaging, easy to understand but not dumbed down, covers a great range of foundational topics. I feel like I know have a really good understanding of the different fields in psychology as well as some of the approaches and methods used by different key figures. Highly recommend to anyone even vaguely interested in psychology.

I always thought I was the text book type and would never cherish an online learning experience. But thanks to Coursera and Prof. Bloom, this has been one of my most wonderful learning experiences. Prof. Bloom is excellent. The way he explains the tenets of psychology not only makes understand each of it clearly but also leaves you with a lot of curiosity.

An excellent introduction to psychology with great animations and an engaging teacher. It will touch on many known experiments of psychology as well as analyze their scientific validity. It will also shape your idea about psychology as a scientific approach to our minds rather than a vague mental analysis that is depicted in contemporary movies and dramas.

This was my first experience with psychology science, a subject that has always interested me implicitly. I'm glad I took the course. It will probably take me to some more in-depth study of related psychological subjects of personal interest. The course was lectured in a well structured way and kept my attention all the way through. Definitely recommended.

Professor Paul Bloom is so kind - enjoyed his lessons and the reading as well! Everything is very interesting and the animated style of video is very engaging! Loved the various research experiments introduced and also hearing about Paul, his wife, who is also a Psychology Professor at Yale! Highly recommend this course to anyone interested in Psychology.

Thank you Professor Bloom. Really enjoyed the course, learned about what makes people behave the way they do and how to accept them and deal with them. This applies to personal relationships, family relationships, societal relationships, relationships between nations and worldwide. I am now eager to dig more in the different subjects at deeper level.

Wonderful and very interesting course. The professor and the additional entities involved in creating this lecture/ content did an amazing job. For someone like me who never was interested in psychology, this course has surely done its job! Would recommend this course even if you are not going to pursue this field or, feel this is not there cup of tea.

I was hoping to jump straight into clinical psychology and at first I resented all the historical topics, especially the lectures about stuff that psychologist’s don’t believe anymore. Then, as I went on I appreciated the extra level of information. Overall, a really good INTRODUCTION to an incredibly complicated subject. It’s inspired me to learn more.

As a visual learner, I appreciate the use of art for the visuals of each lesson. The professor has a clear voice which makes me listen more and understand everything he says clearer. The use of sound effects also got me more excited to learn as it helps me to focus and have fun as I learn. I also rarely see other courses using this kind of visual aids.

Covers a broad range of major topics in psychology with vivid description and cases. The views from the lecturer are very modern and objective, and always try to tell the audience the importance of humbleness and scientific analysis method when doing research in the psychology field. Also really liked the novel presentation method (the illustratIons!!)

This is my first course on Coursera and I loved every bit of it! I got a bit emotional on the final lecture when Dr.Bloom touched on humility and optimism. I have gained beneficial knowledge on the brain and human behaviors, but there are areas yet to be explored. With this, I highly recommend this course to gain insight into the basics of psychology!

Totally awesome. Its been awhile since my last course. With that being said the wording in thee quizzes takes a bit and is a little confusing. Perhaps more details or information regarding upcoming questions on quizzes. I took plenty of notes? But thank you for the experience. Professor Bloom was exceptionally easy to understand, precise and clear.

The content was easy to understand and provided a comprehensive overview of the science of thought and mind. The animations were well-made and the audiovisual association made the lectures easy to follow. The lectures and complementary textbook readings were very complete. The professor's enthusiasm made for an extremely enjoyable learning experience.

I really enjoyed the class as it covered a rather wide array of introductory topics ranging from memory to mental illness in addition to much more. I also respected Dr. Bloom's treatment of the mind-body problem and how he addressed the stance of religious people without being discourteous - although, the course definitely has a naturalistic approach.

Even if you are not a psychology student or not seeing this as your major you must consider opting for this online course. I personally liked it because it offered me what i expected the most from it, that is to learn about people around me and to understand them more. Was able to understand myself more too, what every GenZ wants the most right now!

The way professor Bloom explained each and every terminology by giving examples making it understandable and easy to remember. There are some animations involved that keeps you interested too. The readings were not too lengthy and informative at the same time. some surveys were involved that i found super interesting. Then again you have forums too.

this is my 3rd course from Coursera and I think this one is the best in a way that the professor is really engaging and you feel like you were in a real lecture room. The video is not boring and the reading material is worth reading and scientific based not like some course that the reading material was referred from some non-evidence based website.

It was an excellent course taught to me by the Renowned Professor of Yale University on the subject of Introduction to Psychology. He has an excellent knowledge of the subject. The subject matter enriched my knowledge and further hones my skills on Psychology . Hearties thanks to the Yale University and to the concerned Professor of this subject.

I was always curious about psychology. Professor Bloom did a great job introducing it to me. Do I want to delve further? No, I'll leave that to the professionals. What this course has done though, is confirm my belief that there are high functioning "psychos" among us, re the James Bond reference. Thank you for an eye and mind opening introduction.

I loved taking this course. I enrolled in this course because of Prof Bloom, after coming across his work a couple of years ago. I even referenced him in a book I wrote, called dognitive therapy. I am an animal behaviourist and discussed cognitive vs emotional empathy in my book. Thank you for such a wonderful course. And, hi to Professor Bloom! :)
