He is honestly an amazing prof. He not only makes the material clear and relatively simple, he also makes it extremely interesting by relating it to your own life. The self-reflection involved in the course is very rewarding. His class was worth coming to at 8:30, he's always enthusiastic and super nice. Definitely would take another class with him

I thought his tests were confusing. Beaware when your taking his classes he likes to post his tests on the overhead and is generally a big distraction. He makes tests confusing and I think he writes his own material for students to read and gives pdfs not books. Overall hard class and alot of reading, memorizing and understanding.

Professor MacGregor is very funny and very interesting to listen to. He's a really nice guy :) BUT, I thought his lectures were vague and did not really cover the material on the quizzes (there are 5 quizzes) and the quiz questions were too broad for the multiple choice format. His lectures are worth waking up early for, though! :)

Awesome prof! He's super nice, interesting, and funny. You could tell he's passionate which makes his lectures more interesting. Best part, we don't need to buy textbooks, he writes up his own summaries and uploads them to moodle. Quizzes/assignments are easy!

An extremely relevant course no matter what your major is. Highly thought provoking and introspective. His ability to relate class material to everyday life is masterful. Take his course, you will not be disappointed.

Ian McGregor is the Man. Without a doubt he was the best professor that I've ever had. He makes the material come alive and easy to digest. He is also easy to approach.

Really good prof. Funny, entertaining, and informative. He made 7pm classes worthwhile. Only downside would be the 5 tests within a semester, but otherwise I'd say it's worth a shot.

His lectures are very entertaining but he is not really covering the material that is on the quizzes. There are 5 quizzes, with multiple choice and 2 written answers which can be quite difficult. You might want to ask what exactly you need to write in the answer. It is suppose to be 1 page per question but I found that there was lots more to write.

He's really cool, awesome,and kinda cute! His way of teaching is super interesting and his powerpoint notes are really good too. There are five tests, each is worth 19% and the rest 5% is for the studies that you'll have to participate in. As long as you do the reading and study in DETAILS his lecture notes, you're good.

A good prof who tries to explain complex ideas in simple ways which help those who struggle with doing so on their own. The material was very interesting seeing how he took a completely unique look at personalities. However his way of teaching is definitely not for everyone. I learned a lot in that class and enjoyed it just as much.

THE BEST PROF! Personality theory is heavily based on primary theories like Freud and Jung so obviously they are included (how could they not be?!)...people complain it's not "personality" but it IS if you conceptually understand the material and the evolution of thinking about personality & abnormality.Awesome guy, take this course!

I found this class really easy, i got an A. NO TEXTBOOK, but he does give you readings that he has typed up himself. I found the course interesting, but some of his lectures did get boring. 5 tests (one every 2 weeks)- helps you get a good grade b/c you dont need to know alot of info for each exam. Overall i reccommend this class with this prof
