I'm an Intp and I've been at my new job for about a month or so. One of the office managers appears, from my typing, to be an LSE. He's a very concrete thinker who's also shown what I would describe as ne HA in the way in which he constantly tries to show that he's discovered profound solutions to life's problems, but is actually kind of just pointing out things that are more or less common wisdom.
The other thing I've noticed is that once he finds a correct/workable solution for a problem, he automatically assumes that this is the only correct way to do things. Finally, he also shows difficulty with any sort of ambiguity (ni polr). The idea, for example, that two people could take the same course of action for two completely different reasons is something he seems to reject almost reflexively.
My fear in interacting with him is that I somehow come across as though I'm blowing him off or condescending to him when he tries to offer me advice. We both share an interest in history and politics, but I'm worried that he may take my Ni-grounded analysis the wrong way when we discuss these things. Any advice as to how to keep relations friendly without stepping on his polr?
