You are probably printing to a non-post script printer so InDesign does not give you that option.
If you select the radio "Document" and by printer profile select the document profile, InDesign should not perform any color conversions.
Normally, however, it is best to use Adobe color management. This means by printer profile you select the profile corresponding to the printer and paper type. This should yield a more accurate printout.
If you still have trouble, you can try exporting a PDF, then printing from Acrobat.
thank you rick, but in the printer profile i do not have the choice to select the paper type that i like to use. so i guess, i should check out all possibilities and see, what works best for me, is that right?

The canned printer profiles (if there are any) are usually part of the print driver installation.
You also have the option of creating custom printer profiles. To do this you have to print out special color targets, then send the printouts to an online service. For a small fee they will produce an accurate ICC for you to use.
A little extra cost, time and effort, but if you need calibrated color printouts true to your file it may be worth the hassle.
thank you rick!!
