This course is very insightful and I have learned quite a lot. My favourite area though is Clinical Psychology and Positive Psychology. I believe I will be better able to understand persons around me.

the material is delivered by great and experienced presenters, the material presented is clear and easy to understand, the material presented also uses good visualization so that it helps to understand. The quiz given is also not too difficult. the reading given is also clear and the core material can be understood, unfortunately there is no translation for Indonesian

Professor Bloom is a fantastic professor, he made complex topics easy by giving a lot of examples and showing video material. Furthermore the quiz at the end of each lectrue was doable, not easy but also not impossible to solve. I would recommend this couse to everyone that wants to get a general overview of the field of psychology (and not just clinical psychology)

An absolutely wonderful course and a great insight into the field of psychology. Prof. Paul was also outstanding in explaining each module in a way which can be understood by anyone, and has managed to increase my interest in this field even more. I highly recommend it to those looking to get a glimpse in to the world of the mind and leave the course wanting more.

The lecture in animation format is really creative and inspirational. The way Instructor Bloom led students into the world of psychology is great. So far, it all met my expectations of this course and I've gained quite understanding about my own and others' reactions to situations in life. My appreciation to Yale University and Professor Bloom. Thank you so much!

The teacher was super engaging! I took this class because I am looking to transition into a psychology degree and wanted to try a sample course. I ended up doing the entire course in about 2 weeks because I just enjoyed it so much. I loved the variety of topics, and how modern the courseload was. It was also clearly made for online learning. Really recommend it!

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.

What an amazing course! i completed it over a month, and I have learned so much. this course has given me a different perspective on life, and the subject itself is utterly fascinating. thank you, Professor Bloom, for the amazing animations, the fun little videos to keep attention, your eye for detail and your easy to understand way of explaining and teaching!

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!

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.
