: Is it wrong to say/write "I am not too/also."? Instead, should it be "I am not either." or "Neither am I." or something else? Thanks.

I'm assuming that what you want to write is a complete sentence (not "I am not too pleased with my new shirt") and that it follows another sentence, something like this:
"My sister is not a teacher. I am not too."
If so, then "I am not too" is incorrect. "I am not, also" is correct but doesn't sound like normal English; if you use it, include the comma. "I am not, either" and "Neither am I" are correct.
