I'm Not Crazy, I'm Just Not You: The Real Meaning of the Sixteen Personality Types Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tracing the growth of personality type study from Carl Jung to today's nuanced theory, Roger Pearman and Sarah C. Albritton show how greatly our individual personality preferences affect our interactions with others. I'm Not Crazy, I'm Just Not You teaches us how to overcome our natural inclination to judge difference in order to recognize and celebrate it, even across generational and cultural divides.

Book News Annotation:

Pearman, who is associated with a company specializing in talent management and development services, and Albritton, who is associated with a strategic leadership consultancy focused on change management and organizational effectiveness, explain how to use Myers-Briggs personality types to gain insights into human experiences at home, work, and in the world. They argue that this understanding will help readers see the positive intentions of others, promote tolerance and good listening, and create empathy. They explain type and how it works, its application to the management of emotions, personal effectiveness, and communication both at home and at work. Reorganized and integrating current research, this edition adds four new chapters on the link between type and emotional intelligence, generational issues and cultural variables, and how type influences personal effectiveness in change, careers, stress, and health.

Synopsis:

Puzzled or put off by our own or someone else's behavior, we frequently ask ourselves, Is that normal? Yet the question cuts both ways. Either we fail to meet some arbitrarily high standard, or we despair because we are merely normal. This book offers a clear explanation and some useful answers to the question of normalcy, helping readers identify, understand, and value the wide range of differences in the way normal people perceive and respond to the same situation. Drawing on a large body of solid research, psychologists Pearman and Albritton show how our own natural tendencies produce interpersonal blind spots that lead to misunderstandings. They offer practical tips for recognizing the ways other people perceive and respond to situations differently, and for communicating more effectively with others.

Synopsis:

Focusing on individual tendencies, this new analysis of the MBTI-type indicator shows how personal preferences affect our interactions with others.
