The peculiar nature of introverted intuition, when given the priority, also produces a peculiar type of man, viz. the mystical dreamer and seer on the one hand, or the fantastical crank and artist on the other. The latter might be regarded as the normal case, since there is a general tendency of this type to confine himself to the perceptive character of intuition.

One who is generally considered strange to others

By this definition, I assume most of us are cranks
He calls himself a crank. :) Also some meaning may have been lost in translation there.

Does he mean a "cranky person"? Or perhaps someone prone to moodiness or melancholy? Not inaccurate...
Nah he means if you don't use your judging function and let your intuition run wild you'll be crazy.
