I wanted to like this book more than I did. I responded humorously “that’s exactly the type of prejudice this book is trying to fight! People sometimes ask if it was hard, and I reply “I don’t think so. Good to find fellow ISTJs through blogging. It is terribly ironic that many who kill do so because they lack meaningful relationships with others.
Of course, the rest of the world doesn’t understand. The whole idea of loners being viewed as crazy is an uncomfortable one to face, especially when one prides himself on being a loner and maybe a touch different, though not altogether insane.
