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.

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.

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.
