I have a few part time jobs, and my bosses are either over informative or under informative. Some spend so much time talking i don't have much time to work, and others don't tell me enough, and i make mistakes because of it which also costs time. Which is a better quality?

I think it's better to be under informative, hence the phrase....too much information (TMI). You never want to volunteer too much information. If someone wants to know something, then let them ask.

yes, but sometimes people dont realise when to ask... i underestimate people in general i guess... i think you gotta lay it all out for them right up front, or they'll miss out on whatever it was that they forgot to ask about

yeah i don't like telling people lots of info, but sometimes you can learn a lot about things by listening to people.

overinformative, because after you get real comfortable with the guy, you can just let him know that you've gotta get back to work, and if he keeps babling, then it's his own fault ... my bf is the same way with his employees, adn he knows he talks too much, he's just waiting to see which employees will take the initiative to put work first ;)

Yeah thats sort of what i thought. You also learn more from overinformative people unless they just talk about nothing.
