PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT

Question Of The Week 7-10-17

What is the most memorable class 
you have ever taken?


Yes, I actually took a college course titled PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT. It was such an innovative class and a group of us was selected to appear on television in 1965. I was in that group. It was a hoot:-)

At work we all had to take sensitivity training...it made me aware of how sensitive people are and to think twice before I spoke. Actually, it made me afraid to open my mouth.


biology in college --I learned to love snakes and spiders


Thermodynamics. It changed the way I looked at life. 

A personal development course about the homeless, and what we can do to support them.

Real Estate Law. The instructor had the most amazing Scottish accent. Not sure what he said but I loved the way he said it. 

Non-violent crisis intervention.


It was a writing class actually and I've been turned on to it ever since.

High School Math the year we had a teacher who loved his subject and knew how to teach. Suddenly geometry made sense and I enjoyed Math for the rest of the year.
Then there was my Creative Writing Course which taught me that if the teacher is a fan of literature, she isn't going to like anything you write.


I think the first time I walked into a life drawing class at 17 and sitting down to draw my first naked man. 

Introduction to Motion Pictures - 14 years ago at Georgia State University, when I went back to college to finally finish my degree. I had a wonderful professor named Eddy Von Mueller. I saw him in a restaurant last month and never did go up to him - I got uncharacteristically shy. If I had, I would have told him that was my most favorite class of all time - he made it fascinating.

  12. Wow! There were so many and my answer might be different every day. At the moment, I am thinking about a college course that was only open to senior business majors (in fact, it was a requirement for graduation). We were all teamed up in groups of three to compete against the other teams of three. Each group started a fictitious business and made business decisions that would be fed into a computer and produce quarterly results each week. Each member of the winning business received an A for the course at the end of the semester. We won. It was pretty fun! (Rob)

  14. Keyboarding 101. At the ripe old age of 32, my boss decided that I needed typing skills (at the time, I typed with two and four fingers), so I went to a one week class on my employer's dime to learn how to type.
