More often these days, in a never-ending quest for excellence in leadership and to maximize effective utilization of human resources, businesses are having workers and managers typed. In the USA, this is often through the use of MBTI. Consequently, we may be aware of some of our co-workers types and can guess at their socionics type easily. What have we seen about inter-type relations at work? What are some challenges we've seen in our relationships? What have we done to respond?

I'll start: right now I am in a relationship of supervision with my supervisor; she is my supervisor at work, but I am her supervisor according to socionics. This is a difficult position for her (which she could take out on me, if things were not to go well) so I try to tailor my interactions with her from a one-down position, always mindful that my strengths could intimidate her and set her against me.
