I am an INFJ. I am also a Teacher. I just started a new job and I have been having some difficulties with another employee who was made my mentor/trainer by our boss.
My new job is teaching Montessori. Which is a whole different kind of teaching. I did a distance learning course but did not have hands on training. My boss hired me but requested that I train with another teacher. I trained with her for 2 weeks and it was nightmarish.
She was a horrible person to work with. " No you don't do it like that!" "How many times must I show you?" "Did you not listen to what I told you the first time?"
I went from my normal happy-go-lucky self to feeling like the stupidest person alive. She brought me down so low I actually cried and would need to walk away. I am not a crier so for me to cry was extreme.
This job went from dream job to nightmare job. I have been on the job for 4 weeks now and I dread going to work everyday. They have paired us in the same class for a few months. I don't know if I can handle it for that long. I tried to talk to the boss about it but she thinks it is the best decision for the class.
I of course seeked advice from my husband who is an ENTJ and all I got was work hard and ignore her. Dont let her get to me and just continue to work work work.
Any advice on dealing with a controlling, dictating, over confident person who has some chip on her shoulder and thinks they are always right and you should worship the ground they walk on?
