My boss is a force to be reckoned with! He walks fast, talks loud, and he's very direct. Oh yeah, and he micromanages. And yet, there is a very compassionate side to him. When an employee was dying of cancer, he was very upset. And when a coworker who also happened to be my BFF died, he was crushed. He gave me a day off, and when I came back to work, he kept an eye on me.
He's willing to give people a second chance. And he will joke around with us when in the right mood.
When he's in a bad mood, we steer a wide path around him! His tongue can be razor sharp!
I can't figure out which type he is because he's so intense, yet a devoted family man who obviously loves his wife, sons, and grandchildren. I'm guessing ESTJs could also be loving and protective. I'm stumped.
Any thoughts?

Sounds more like an ESTJ, however the information you provided is very little.

I would suggest thinking on how he makes his decisions. Are they based on group-consensus (Fe) or on defined by-the-book standards (Te)?

My mom is an ESTJ and that sounds just like her. I have a friend that's an ESFJ and there is a noticeable difference between them. ESFJ is normally more welcoming and emotional, where ESTJ is more logical and blunt, but can show compassion when needed.
