    I am slightly more extroverted than introverted and I simply hate group work. That's because lots of people pool every stupid idea they can think of instead of thinking about a reasonable result that is holistic.

    I've seen extremes of both (intense brainstorming and intense "stick-to-it ness).Both are bad obviously, it all depends on having people in the group that facilitate brainstorming as well as keeping things on track and wrapping it up.

    I've seen groups come out with crappy projects because they kept switching their ideas though, definitely something that needs to be watched. (In other words, get some J in there to put the hammer down )

    (Edited it a bit to clarify)
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    i really dislike groupwork, for the most part. Tends to be that most other people are unreliable, and that, when I care enough to do it myself, I end up doing it all myself anyway. Though, that also happens sometimes because my standards are so high that most other people's efforts are less than satisfactory to me. Of course, I CAN do group work, and my group work tends to produce results superior to my own when I can get a reasonable group together. It's just difficulty in forming those groups. *shrug* overall, I dislike it.

    Depends. If I'm working with competent people - it's often quite nice. If I'm working with lazy morons - I'll pass. Also depends on what I'm doing and my mood at the time.

    At work I often liked having somebody there with me to share the burdens and talk to. It helped make the day go by faster sometimes, and much more endurable. Of course assuming the other person(s) was competent at what they were doing, and could shoulder their share of the work.

    It varies with groupwork, and also, how I view the people.

    If I take in people as "tools" to just get the job done, then I like groupwork where it is composed of competent, creative people, who can collaborate to get it done.

    However, when I do other things, I just do it myself, because I work much more quickly than the people around me, and therefore, it is just easier and faster for me to do it myself.

    I don't like nor dislike it, as there are a lot of different situations. If I am bossed around by some incompetent, I will loathe every minute of it, as I don't like being bossed for one, and will probably get less done because I am too busy plotting revenge.

    I feel more accomplishment if I do it myself.

    I'm ok with it only if there are people more skilled than me in useful areas and no one is determined to be dictator.
