I'm not crazy, I'm just not you!
Why are people so different? Why do some people love a party and others prefer to just stay home?
Why are some people slobs and others neat freaks? Why do some people procrastinate while others
get jobs done well ahead of schedule? There are lots of factors that make each of us who we are,
but one important part is our personality. Social scientists can divide all of us into 16 personality
types. Each type has a natural preference for the way it reacts to situations, manages the world
around it, and how it deals with stress and other people. In this track, each participant will complete
the Meyers-Briggs personality sorting instrument and will get his/her results back on day 2. Once
you know what type you are, you better understand how to arrange the world to suit your natural
preferences. You understand why you react to things the way you do. And almost as importantly,
you understand that when others react differently, they aren't "crazy," they're just a different type than
you. Understanding our own personalities and those of the people around us can help us be happier
and more productive at home, at school, and with our friends. Kim Ragland, D4
