how can I validate two fields must not equal each other with jquery?
I know this code works to validate that they are equal.  I want to do the opposite.

$("#account_info").validate( {
		 
	  rules: {
       profile_2: { equalTo: "#profile_1"}
	     },
		 
	  		 
	     });

Conveniently, change "equalTo" to "notEqualTo"

Tried notEqualTo and it did not work.  

Also tried to add the method and cannot get that to work either.  I have added other methods and they work but cannot see what is wrong with this one.
here is all the code that I am using.

//validation addMethods for my account here
        //custom validation rule - text only
        $.validator.addMethod("textOnly", function(value, element) {
        return !/[0-9]*/.test(value);
        }, "Alpha Characters Only.");

       $.validator.addMethod("notEqualTo", function(value, element, param) {
        return this.optional(element) || value != param;
        }, "Please specify a different (non-default) value");
/*--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------*/
$("#account_info").validate( {
							
	  errorPlacement: function (error, element) {        
	   $('#'+element.attr("id")+'_label').append(error); 		 
         },
		 
		 
	  rules: {
       profile_2: { notEqualTo: "#profile_1"}
	     },
		 
	  messages: {
	   county_ansi: "Setting your location is required. Please enter a city or zip code to search.",
		 },
		 
	  submitHandler: function(form) {
       $("#loading_box").show();
       $("#button_box").hide();
	   form.submit();    
        }
		 
	     });

Got it

$.validator.addMethod("notEqualTo", function(value, element, param) {
        return this.optional(element) || value != $(param).val();
        }, "Please specify a different (non-default) value");
