  • This was one of my favorite courses that I have taken at ODBU so far. It was fun, engaging, and very informative. I learned so much about myself and how to relate better to others. There is lots of useful and practical information that is easy to apply daily in real life. I highly recommend this course!

    — Helen
  • I gained a lot of insight about interacting with other people no matter what the relationship is (spouse, child, boss, coworker, paster or God). This course gave me a great deal of insight to my personality, and what to look for in the personality of others. Thank you

    — Terri
  • The session was very informative and inspiring. I would like to continue in advanced studies of the courses available in the future, by the grace of God.

    — Ene
  • Thank you very much for this course. The lessons were very enlightening and it helped me understand better and accept all of my weaknesses as very necessary parts. Seeing the individuals in my space with this improved understanding will make me a better version of myself.

    — Doreen
  • Thank you all for the instructions and application of the lessons. I saw myself much better. I can accept and make the changes/adaptations with a better understanding of who I am. Continue this good work that God has entrusted to you.

    — Doreen
  • I found the course very interesting, but also very challenging. There seemed to be a lot to learn, and perhaps more importantly to be able to understand.

    — Ray
  • God bless you, Martin Deacon, this is a big eye opener towards many things.

    — Onyedinma johnson
  • Enlightening

    — Chidinma
  • This was an eye-opening process as I discovered my style, strengths and weaknesses! I have already recommended it to my friends and ministry partners!

    — Jackie
  • I am looking forward to applying my learning to my ministry and home relationships because I better understand myself and the other styles.

    — Julianna
  • The course really helped me to discover myself, see myself and others unique and appreciate everyone despite differences

    — Michael
  • Found the course very interesting and I learned a lot of myself.

    — Jamey
  • This course bought awareness to something I've heard of - 'personality styles.' But something I never actually think of or participated in. The course highlighted many of my strengths and weaknesses and showed me how to implement changes. For example, I am an SC and although I am a perfectionist and like to be correct and do things in order, I am not a person who initiates or adapts easily. So, my vow to myself based on the course is to try to initiate conversations and reach more to others.

    — Jennifer
  • This course is eye-opening for me.

    — Josepha
  • Very practical and informative course. Get to know my personality better.

    — Angeline
  • This course has helped me to better understand my own personality. I was able to understand myself better from the present perspective of an adult, some of my behavior as a child, adolescent, teen, and young adult. I have also tried to apply what I have learned to understanding the personalities in my adult Women's Bible study course. Specifically, as it relates to humbly solving a conflict without causing members on either side of the disagreement to leave the course.

    — Belinda
  • Very practical. It is taught in a fun way. Easy to remember. And the wrap up in last lesson is fantastic. Thank you.

    — Catina
  • I enjoyed this course.

    — Patricia
  • Very well put together

    — Adrian
  • People are indeed wonderfully and fearfully made. This is one tool to go into the toolbox of understanding others along with such things as cultural background, history, education, general interests, learning styles (visual, auditory, kinaesthetic, via reading for information or attached to a ‘story’ , etc.) and probably lots of things I haven’t thought of. It was enjoyable and fun to do. Thank you.

    — Carol
  • Very illuminating! I had no idea I was so indifferent to other personality types. I figured everyone was the same. Not so.

    — Brian
  • I loved this course, it sure has helped me to understand myself better and why I do the things I do and act the way I do. Also it has helped me see that ppl have different personalities and that is why they act and respond the way they do, and in knowing this it has helped me to be more patient with those who are not like me.
