I have this employee who tested as ESFJ and she definitely fits the bill. I genuinely like her and find her to be a pleasant addition to our team. However, there are days when she drives me absolutely insane.
The main issue is how "needy" she comes off to me. She constantly fishes for compliments on how she's doing at her job (I feel that I give adequate feedback in the form of "great job with x today!" or "you made a small mistake here, but we can easily fix it by doing y. No big deal!"), if I am talking to another employee she will stop what she is working on and come over to "be a part of our conversation", when she has made mistakes she acts like it's the end of the world (tears, near tears, apologies for days on end), and comes in on her day off to see what we are up to that day.
Suffice to say, I find myself withdrawing from too much interaction with her because I get overloaded with need.
So what I am asking, is there something I can do to try and offset our different approaches to things? (some happy medium to where I don't have to go too outside of my box.)
Thanks for any and all replies. .
