    My current boss seems to be an Si user, she is a really nice person but quietly trys to control things, she will see dangers everywhere and do her best to prevent bad things from happening, which is a natural human reaction, but she overdoes it to such a degree that I am thinking, "Just go with the flow. Things will be fine." (and I am a strong J! I am not sure about her Myers-Briggs type but she seems to me like a stereotypical Enneagram 6.)

    It's less about Si and more about their lack of Ne, wouldn't you agree? Si's fine if you are balanced. There are plenty of Si users out there who won't make your life miserable. That's probably why you are frustrated with bosslady. But it's no different than an unbalanced Ni user who has no pulse on what's going on around them- it's useless.

    I'm actually going through something like that myself. My former (as of Friday) boss was ESTJ and his boss is ISTJ. The ISTJ is very very Ne deficient to the point he irritates me! Well the ESTJ is very respectful of rank and will make decisions based on his perceived reaction from the ISTJ. It's always based on what he will think! So it makes it hard to get some kind of free thinking going, because that approach clouds it. So my second point is that not all SJs get along and speak the same language, and are as closeminded as your boss. We like to think out the box and try different stuff.

    What makes it worse is that the work we do encourages Ne defiicient thinking, because we are told to think about the range of 'what ifs?' out there, and you'll always find some skeptic out there who runs wild with all the remote and very unlikely schemes and it sucks the life out of the job.

    .... hmmm, decisions...
    After ten months, I still want to be an ESTJ to explore my thinking side and be decisive... but, I'd also like to throw a party and be an ESFJ so that everyone will have fun and feel really welcome!

    That is a great business concept. I'd be happy to design the advertisements.

    I would have picked ISFJ before, but it looks like I am ISFJ.
    Well...now I would pick ESTJ.

    I selected ESFJ because I was raised by one and can relate in that way, plus I get along well with ESFJs. Primarily I chose this type because in my observations and interactions with ESFJs I find them to be genuinely happy, energetic people who not only attract and charm others, but also seem to improve the lives of those around them with their positivity. The ones I know seem to have enthralling lives, too. Perhaps its the way they live their lives that lends that feeling. They aren't stagnant. No intent to in any way diminish the other SJs here.

    I can't believe I voted for ESTJ....I think at the time I liked the idea of being my "opposite" and ESTJ seems "easy" in this world. However, I'd change my vote to ISTJ now. One who is in touch with their tert-Fi (they exist!).
