Im Not Crazy, Im Just Not You: The Real Meaning of the Sixteen Personality Types by Roger R. Pearman

Im Not Crazy, Im Just Not You / 978-1-857-88552-1

Im admittedly not a big fan of the Myers-Briggs personality types model. Ive seen the model employed badly, too many times, at corporate retreats that seemed to use the model to stereotype and as an excuse to avoid getting to know individuals meaningfully. (One teacher argued that there was no point in ASKING an employees opinion if you already knew what their type would want in any given situation - asking might result in misunderstandings, or in polite lies, from an employee who didnt know or couldnt express what their type really would want!)

Ive also, anecdotally, taken many iterations of the test many times (as well as having family members rate me on their own), only to get a different type almost every single time. I cant honestly say that Ive collected all 16 types, but I HAVE been each of the 8 subtypes, at various times. And Im not alone - studies have shown that 50% of people who re-test get a different type at time of retest, and while this may be chalked up to poor testing, or poor self-reporting, or any number of other inherent difficulties in personality typing, the overall process makes me a little concerned. Nevertheless, I did try to keep an open mind going into this book when I received it from NetGalley, and I was at first prepared to recommend this book if you must read a Myers-Briggs book, but deeper reading left me with mixed feelings.

From the start, theres a lot thats done right here. The authors carefully explain the general concepts of typing and really hammer home the crucial fact that types are general preferences per person, and not locked in behaviors. The authors note, ...we cannot make predictions of behavior or competencies based solely upon a persons type preferences, and I appreciate this strongly worded warning to corporate managers who try to staff projects based on personality type alone. In addition, the type components are much more clearly explained here - its nice to see an author make the correct (according to Jung, anyway) distinction between introversion/extroversion, instead of leaving it to the current colloquial meaning of shy/outgoing (the English language having evolved extensively in the 60 years since Jungs ideas were published).

Despite the strong start, though, the writing starts to flounder - a lot of the material here is basically unsupported and loosely linked anecdotes about interactions with various children and managers, and the anecdotes frankly seem to me to be a stronger argument in favor of better communication overall (and general open-mindedness to differences) as opposed to a reason to study the 16 personality types in any kind of depth. The anecdotes seem flowing and disjointed, and sometimes dont seem to have a compelling connection to the current topic in the book.

Ultimately, I appreciate that the authors make the point that the Myers-Briggs model cannot be used in any scientifically significant sense to predict individual behavior, but once that has been established, I have to ask what is the point of a book dedicated to understanding the 16 types? Id expected the super-title (Im Not Crazy, Im Just Not You) to be more about understanding and tolerance to opposing opinions, rather than about pigeonholing people into Sensing types who predictably (except when they dont!) think and act a certain way - which is how the children in the anecdotes are described. I suppose if youre a firm believer in the Myers-Briggs model, this might be a valuable resource for how to think from another typical point of view, but Im not sure youll enjoy wading through all the anecdotes to get there. And if youre not a believer in the Myers-Briggs model, this book certainly isnt going to change your mind.

Yeah I could go anywhere, never feel alone. I come back to the places where we found us, yeah [Chorus] When I'm not with you, I'm not me.

I'm Not the Only One

Fri 20 Jul A t a rural Northamptonshire studio, a young collie named Blue sticks her face over the stable door. A similarly puppyish vision appears on the staircase: Matt Healy peers down, peroxide job growing out, greys catching the light. In the recording studio across the courtyard, their exercise routines are taped to the wall, preparing the Manchester band for their world tour next year. The first two singles released from their new album span ageing, STDs, suicide, police brutality, Cambridge Analytica, Trump, Kanye and war. He concedes the point. Unprompted, he questions whether artists should boycott countries with poor human rights records, a subject most musicians doggedly avoid.

Sign in. Watch now. A young teacher inspires her class of at-risk students to learn tolerance, apply themselves and pursue education beyond high school. A working mother puts herself through law school in an effort to represent her brother, who has been wrongfully convicted of murder and has exhausted his chances to appeal his conviction through public defenders. Set in a parallel universe, Comet bounces back and forth over the course of an unlikely but perfectly paired couple's six-year relationship. A young widow discovers that her late husband has left her 10 messages intended to help ease her pain and start a new life.

Friends treat you like a stranger and Strangers treat you like their best friend, oh well Spare a thought for the ones that came before All in a daze bending backwards to reach your goal. Friends treat you like a stranger and Strangers treat you like their best friend, oh well. When can we, yeah can we, work it out? Meditation just makes you more strung out I wish you had a guru to tell you to let it go, let it go. I need a little time out I need a little time out.

Go to Songsear. Hey everyone, trying to find a song, with the chorus that says "one thin love is in your eyes. Can you help? Looking for a song that seems like metal or rock, it does not seem fully english. Hey I'm looking for a song I heard while in a Hot Topic the other day.

    A piano soul ballad, anchored by orchestral strings and a gospel structure, "I'm Not the Only One" deals with themes of infidelity in a relationship and was inspired by a marriage of someone Smith and Napes knew.
