Has Aikido made you personally into a better person?
How could I know, what parts of my developments the last years are due to my aikido training, and what is not! How could you know, about yourself?
As long as people are preaching that aikido makes you a better person, then some people will happily say that how they've grown as individuals are due to their aikido training. Who knows, maybe they had become even better people if they did casting instead?
I have met enough of mean and single-minded people in the aikido world. Interestingly, most of them like to lecture on personal development through training in aikido.
