I am a C person: Naturally introverted, often feeling insecure.
I hired a dominant D person: Secure of himself and achieved a lot within a very short time span. On a technical level he's way ahead of me. I'm very happy with him, the only issue I have is his dominance. This is what happened today:
I told the team a thing that I'm starting to program. Naturally this would have been their task but I needed to get it done to have more data for an upcoming decision and didn't want them to pause their current projects.
That's when he told me that this was actually not my job to program such things. This was in the room and loud enough that half a dozen people heard it. I didn't confront him but said that I liked doing that and that I just need the data now.
It just felt like he is the boss and telling me what to do when this is in fact the other way round.
I will give him feedback of course. I guess it was not his intention to play boss.
Problem is that the dynamic is not likely to change as he is a secure D and me an insecure C. It makes me feel like he'd be more suited to be my boss.
Do you have any suggestions what to do and what not to do?
