A good introduction to subject of Political Psychology though i would have liked a little more content. But nonetheless i am satisfied with the objectivity shown buy the presenter.
Stringent and to the point. Very good as a primer to give you an orientation on the subject - that is brief enough to be digested in a short time, but substantial enough to begin building an understanding. Just right if you want to begin to deepen this subject.
The instructor did a terrific job of taking research brilliant by Jonathan Haidt and making it accessible and so clear. Excellent work! great course! Trenchant and timely ideas/recommendations! Much gratitude!
The only thing I would add would be more in-depth analysis of the recent campaigns of Brexit and Trumpism as well as an analysis of far leftist movements
examples are quite good make sure make u r words more simple and clear and slow ..... but for example point of view its cool..at hot buttons its good
