Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Individuals and managers who have taken the MBTIr or use it for staff training will find this book a useful source for putting their knowledge of differing types to work toward communication with colleagues.
William W. Sternbergh
Differences matter. From the crib to the boardroom, from the golf course to the bedroom, differences matter. In this second edition of I'm Not Crazy, I'm Just Not You, Pearman and Albritton bring up-to-date research to push our understanding of those differences to a new level. Their thinking challenges us to be proactive in our relationships and they give us the tools to be successful.
Malcolm Barnett
I'm Not Crazy, I'm Just Not You is invaluable in my role as leader of a multinational, multicultural team. Being able to understand my colleagues' type preferences-and explain my own-increased the levels of trust and support in the team. This book is essential reading for any leader attempting something new and challenging.
Dr. Sally Campbell
The acceptance of difference-a commitment to tolerance and listening to others without assumptions-is a theme for our times. This book is a guide for greater understanding in the next decade of rapid change across generations and different global cultures.
