    I wouldn't mind working for an INTP, as long as he/she can get to the point and be concise. Start off with the big picture and I'll ask for details. Start off with the details and I will drift off into space, imagining your slow painful death. But yeah, I could deal with an INTP...

    Totally true - I can definitely handle them (and I like them and understand them). But it's hard for me to sit back and watch them do it to others who are less confrontational or secure. It looks like bullying. Not a fan of that sort of behavior and I will constantly fight for the underdog on principle alone.

    i voted entj
    a good entj's a good boss If you're planning on taking over the world and stuffs like that.
    I'm already an entp i Mean, you don't need two of those @ the top oft a company.

    My father's an estj, he works like a madman and confuses family and work, is uber petulant about stupid details and so on, but there's nothing some N can't fix right?!

    So I'd go for an entj on the N side, thank you.
    I understand than people want the cool \ not scary boss but let's get real for a second, it's about making money not drinking cocktails on the beach.

    Heh, my father is an ENTJ, when he was running the show and got angry one way or another, I didn't respond back with much emotion at all. Just said he should get his head out of his arse, I'm doing the work I need to do. I couldn't care less.

    This is also why I'd never work for an ENTJ. I have a certain style when it comes to doing things, ENTJ's tend to have their own styles and try to force that onto others. Both styles may work just fine, but if it's not exactly how they want then it's by default wrong, or at least not good enough. At least that was very strong with my father, even the littlest of things. Like a certain routine of washing a car.

    Most annoying was when I programmed our companies software and he wanted it a certain exact way, even though it was very ineffecient and dumb. I ended up making the program my way and he learned to live with it. But it caused many firey moments on his behalf.

    I'd definitely choose an INTP. Least amount of non-necessary crap to deal with.

    Heh, I guess it's showing then, that I have never worked in an office (well, my own office, but never one of those cubicle monstrosities or multi-desk places) or for a big corporation. Only ever worked in small local businesses, with less than 10 employees, often less than 5. Easier that way to hand pick people that will work well together.

    When my ENTJ and I were partners running a business, we purposely didn't pick people as employees who we thought were likely to cry if criticized, and when interviewing them, tested them for boundary defending cajones lol It was fun working with him, we worked the whole good cop, bad cop thing very effectively.

    I guess working for a jerk is never fun, whatever their type. When thinking which type I'd rather work for or with, I start from the point of assuming they're not the jerk subspecies of their type and consider the plus and minus points of the non-jerk versions being in positions of authority.

    Yeah, a partner for one of my businesses is an ENTJ and it is the best relationship (work or otherwise) I've ever had. I always leave our meetings feeling so happy and accomplished. We never butt heads, except when it comes to the way we speak to the employees...

    I love them, but I have my own ways of doing things that would not be conducive to a boss/worker relationship.

    hey, just because that's how you'd run the show, that doesn't mean that's the way the rest of us would.

    Not so sure. There is plenty of non-necessary crap to deal with in female INTP bosses that surface when some unforeseen invisable button is pushed. However, i've delt with it pretty good. I can create some unsustainable BS that they're still pondering on to this day. Any other boss would have put a black mark on my record because they instantly assumed my BS was really BS or something
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?
