In the workplace at least, I find myself getting along best with managers who are capable of giving "clear and directional" instructions.
I just had some miscommunications with my manager earlier. He told me to pack a bunch of items into this cardboard box, but he didn't exactly tell me how he wanted me to pack it, he didn't give me any "clear and directional" instructions on how to pack it, so I ended up packing it in my own way.
And then he started telling me that I've packed it the wrong way.
Some examples of the "clear and directional" instructions I was looking for are these:
"I want you to pack this certain item into this certain plastic bag."
"I want you to dismantle this item using this certain tool."
"I want you to pack these two smaller cardboard box into this bigger cardboard box."
I need those type of detailed step-by-step "clear and directional" instructions, but he didn't give me any of these instructions.
Instead, he just gave me those items and the carton, and then he just told me to pack it.
His instructions wasn't clear enough for me, I didn't know what he wanted, hence, I ended up packing it the wrong way.
Does my strong liking of detailed step-by-step clear directional instructions point toward Se-seeking, or does this point more toward Te-seeking?
