Overview

Tracing the growth of the study of personality type from its roots in the work of Carl Jung to today's subtly nuanced type theory, I'm Not Crazy, I'm Just Not You shows how greatly our individual personality preferences affect our interactions with others. By shedding light on individual characteristics and tendencies, psychologists Roger R. Pearman and Sarah C. Albritton teach us how to overcome our natural inclination to judge difference in order to recognize and celebrate it.

This new edition includes current research into psychological type, information about the benefits of using type to enhance health and manage stress, discussion of the link between type and emotional intelligence and analysis of how personality preferences translate across generational and cultural divides.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Building on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Personality Inventory (MBTI), Pearman and Albritton, executives at Leadership Innovations, an international consulting and training firm, present an in-depth study of the dynamics of type. Through charts and explanatory text, the authors present a wide array of information, analyze the strengths and weaknesses of each personality type, and explore type-dynamic behaviors and interactions, all to help us better understand our motivation and those of others. Individuals and managers who have taken the MBTI 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. For public libraries serving business professionals.-Marguerite Mroz, Baltimore Cty. P.L., Md.
