boss

  1. Sex and Relationships
    I feel attracted to my boss and I don't want to. Simply because I have no desire or interest to develop my attraction into something more and I want to keep our relationship only on a professional level (I don't even know if he is married, in relationship etc.). I feel very uncomfortable about...
  2. Education & Career Talk
    Have you ever had a co-worker, or boss, act inappropriately at work? What unprofessional behavior have you endured? My story:
  3. Myers Briggs Forum
    Type anyone who has authority over you or is senior to you, in one way or another. Do MBTI because it's the MBTI forum but feel free to include any other type, like Enneagram or cognitive functions or socionics. Let the typing begin!
  4. Education & Career Talk
    Not sure if a thread like this exists, so I'll start one. What's the worst thing that's ever happened to you at work? Any stories worth sharing? Let's hear them, so we may grieve together, empathize together, and perhaps even laugh together. I'll post mine later on, after a few others share...
  5. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I just read about ENTPs are very bad at making money (link: The personality types that earn the most and least money - Business Insider ) Though I have never really worked (bc I am still going to school) I can't imaginge we are so bad at making money. Is that true? I just worked some holiday...
  6. Myers Briggs Forum
    My boss is really grumpy 90% of the time. I'm a waitress and he owns the restaurant. He yells constantly, complains all the time, says mean things to us waitresses and sometimes he threatens (although he would never act on these threats) I only started working here three months ago and I've seen...
  7. ISFP Forum - The Artists
    ISFP as the boss for a INTJ How is ISFP as leaders? How they prefer to inspire, guide and control? How do they put limits and relate to them? Ask because my dear INTJ (woman) was interpreted as aggressive by her boss, a female ISFP. So is there something about the dynamics between this...
  8. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hi, I created an account to ask this, because I've having a ton of trouble at work. I'm an INTP with a decade of military experience, dealing with an ENFP boss. He doesn't seem to be particularly comfortable being in charge (he's constantly looking from validation from us), and is so...
  9. Blog
    I'll go right off the back here and say that I, honest and earnest to gold, bronze, and silver am not a morning person. I wake up early yeah and I sleep early because whatcha gonna do for the rest of the day, I'm basically running on steam when I get back home from a long day of doing what...

    "ENTJS also help ENFPs step back, take things less personally and be open to constructive criticism." Oh yes. This one they can do quite well. I experienced this particularly in the workplace. A few years back, I had a rough-edged boss who would cut me to the quick by her remarks and...
  11. Education & Career Talk
    Hey everyone, I'm experiencing what seems to be a personality conflict at work. It's been going on for the past several weeks and I'm hoping someone can help me with it. As a bit of background, I'm from the US and am currently working in Germany. Almost four months ago, I started a 1-year...
  12. ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    I have but do not have a tolerance for it. I start job hunting once I know for sure the person has a lot of job security and it is deliberate and not just from being difficult or fussy. I have done some serious acting just to maintain my professional manner and sometimes I did begin to speak up...
  13. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Short and sweet my Baby Boomer Boss is an ISTP Mechanic\Promoter. Some observations: No Planning is permitted in the work environment: Jam the Gears Peoples Feelings are ignored Expects all honesty from you and gives almost no information on anything ever. Self Serving at the cost of the team...
  14. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    I'm so sorry this is long but please read through it--I really need some advice. I just found out this weekend that my father is going to have to have emergency surgery to remove his wisdom teeth because they are extremely infected. His dentist scheduled the surgery for this Friday which was...
  15. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Today, after meetting with my presentation group in the university I've been told that I am very bossy. I usually push everyone to finish the work etc. I just want to work when we meet, not talk, thats all haha. INTJ, do you think others perceive us as bossy? Other types, do you see INTJ in such...
  16. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    What are your thoughts on your personal experience between you, an INTP, and the job (meaning your colleagues, bosses, rules, etc. front where you are from? I find myself to be relatively easy to get along with at work, but I'm very distracted a lot of the time. I learn fast, meet expectations...
  17. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Things are very seldom, if ever, what they seem in the work place. And I have yet to see anyone in a management position that is truely competent, and is actually fair. It's even worse in the non-profit sector where everyone pretends to care about the "mission" and the individual, when in...
  18. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hello, I just wanted to start this thread to get advice from everyone on a problem I'm having at work. I don't mind if you're from another Type--all opinions matter for this. Sorry this is such a long post. Okay, so I'm not trying to brag but I am a hard worker when I'm at my job. I work...
  19. Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    Hello everyone, this is the first time I write in this section. I am an INFP type 6w7 and when I read this description I could relate : "Sixes are nervous around authority figures" I experience this with one of my bosses with whom I have a good professional relationship. On a few occasions...
