Remember when . . .


C. Neuroticus Absolutus

Ever since I’m OK − You’re OK, by Thomas A. Harris, appeared on bookshelves in 1969, everyone wanted to know where they fell in the Transactional Analysis matrix even if they didn't understand what it meant. There are four simple choices:

I’m OK − You’re OK
I’m OK − You’re not OK
I’m not OK − You’re OK
I’m not OK − You’re not OK.

Shortly after it appeared, the "I'm OK - You're OK" sensation morphed and appeared on bumper stickers that insisted, " I’m OK. You’re a shithead."
