Theory Y. If I choose people who like the work they do then I'll only need to support them, and I won't need to micromanage them.

I always use theory Y approach on the first time, if it is done well so i continue to be theory Y manager. But if there is issue that i must observe closely and control every step (micromanagement) i think i use theory X (but this case is rarely).

when asked i believe more than 90% will say they are theory Y, but you need to observe what person does on day to day basis. Most of us has wrong perception of our-self. :-) :-)

Agree with Saket. Most of us see ourselves as Y, what it would be more interesting is to ask others how they perceive us. By the way, I also consider myself an Y manager :)

I think being X or Y depends on the type of work. I work in the IT field where task types vary frequently and provide good motivation. There is little place for dull, repetitive work. Up until now, I have always been a theory Y manager, which is quite in accordance with my field of work.
