I'm having a problem figuring out the type of relation between my boss and I. It's not a comfortable relationship. I never feel like I can do anything to impress her. She doesn't openly give praise when something is done well. If something is done incorrectly, she doesn't hesitate one bit to say so. She comes across as very no-nonsense, task-oriented, and blunt. I'm guessing some sort of ST, but which one? I considered SLE but I don't know if that's right. That would be a relation of supervision, and I do definitely feel that and not because she happens to be my boss. However, she definitely seems to value Te/Fi more than Ti/Fe so, SLE would be out. I'm seeking and I would prefer a boss that showed more emotional warmth and enthusiasm, especially about my ideas. She's not necessarily against my ideas, its just that to me she appears rather indifferent to them, maybe because she appears so serious.
I was thinking LSE but she seems more introverted than extraverted. Also the mirage relation that would result between us doesn't seem right. The LSI doesn't seem right either because I think she is from a Te/Fi quadra. I seriously doubt SLI- I'm pretty sure is not her base function.
Our work styles are also somewhat different. I want a solution that will apply across a wide multitude of scenarios; while she's more interested in a solution that will quickly solve the problem now even though it may only be a quick fix and not applicable much elsewhere. She sees me as hesitant to troubleshoot some unexpected problem that occurs with equipment or some difficult library patron because I'm asking her or some other colleague how to best proceed. I told her that if I appear hesitant its because I've been working here for a few months and I'm not as experienced as most of my colleagues, and I don't want to be doing something wrong. I'm thinking my hesitancy might have something to do with my weak . It can be difficult for me to take immediate action in my environment. I want to ponder things over and weigh different options, which is too slow in a lot of situations. I'm beginning to think my boss values , which would put her in my opposing quadra. That would make her a gamma type. She's definitely more T than F. About the only gamma type I see possible for her would be LIE. That would be an extinguishment relation between us, which I can possibly see. The thing is, she doesn't strike me as being an N type.
So I'm at a loss what her type is and what our relation actually is. Thoughts?
