1 Answer

I explained that I'm an independent worker and prefer to be shown one time, but because I'm a tactile learner I need to do it on my own, and then have the boss come check it after. So my example was a boss who needed a grant written, but wanted to stand over me, but I explained that I'll write it then he can edit it in his own language.
