    As a boss myself, I've given guidance when it's been asked for, but after the initial explanation of a new project or topic, I won't come breathing down people's necks with reminders and shit. I'm aware that there are some people who need and want guidance, but have difficulty with asking for it. I've learned to avoid employing such people, and just make it clear that I'm more than happy to answer any questions and would rather people asked if in doubt than risk screwing up to avoid asking, but I do really appreciate employees who can get on with minimal supervision.

    That's why the partnership with the ENTJ worked out so well - he would try to micromanage, but I'd be very aware of when it was becoming a bit much. At that point I'd lend a sympathetic ear to the staff, then put a word in to restrain him, so there was a period of "hands off" management that they came to appreciate. So they'd feel like they were being guided, and just when I was getting sick of guiding, they'd feel like a period without guidance; just when ENTJ was starting to panic and needing to put a hand on the tiller again, they'd start flailing and feeling like they needed more guidance

    I just wanted to see how a denial of an ironic statement aimed to be supportive of the aforementioned statement would look like

    I would like a INTP or ENTP boss. People that have attitude "do it now because i said so" gets on my nerve. I rather they give me a reasonable deadline and i'll get it done before said time.

    LOL

    I think ENTP, like ESTP would make better field commanders than ETJs. Becuase i really hate giving people the axe and tell them when to get their work on time while acting like a hippocrate. I really really hate paper and computer work.

    whereas when you are fighting battles, all you need is a large amount of Se, and desire to blow shit up. You can join in the bloodfest whenever you want.

    No. Good question, though.

    Just pay attention to deadlines and keep your hands to yourself. If something becomes too heavy to manage on your own, ask for assistance. I like independence of mind, but despise intransigence - especially when it interferes with productivity.

    The last thing either of us wants is to get in deep with corporate. Makes life unnecessarily complicated for both of us. This then means I need to micromanage behavior as to avoid getting cuffed myself. Repetition in effort is frustrating and is an avoidable waste of time and resources.

    Oh, and save your emails. Paper trails are an easy way to avoid backbiting.
