    Me! I"m ISFJ though. I hate group work. Boooo. I prefer to work alone or with as few people as possible.

    I must say, though, I do find it ironic that a lot of introverted thinkers end up in professions that require a lot group work. It's like some sort of experiment gone wrong. heh

    I just started my own company, so If I am working with someone I dont want to work with, I have no one to blame but myself. Plus it makes you learn to appreciate help from other people in a big way. There is only so much you can do yourself.

    Doesnt necessarily mean I like it, but I have certainly learned to appreciate the usefulness of it.

    Someone saying somthing just to spite someone else is irrelevent to the discussion. I am still correct.

    I had no clue groupwork is this hated. I love it, it excites me. ENTJ seem to be the only one enjoying it?

    I'm usually a facilitator, enabler or somekind of a "chairman" of the group, if it's a discussion. I get everyone to participate, I show to value their input and invite them in, even if they didn't like the initial group setting in the start. Usually everyone does their own thing then, we make a short discussion of each item of work done, decide the best action on the spot - it's very quick, satisfies all and gets novel results. Usually the group elects me to present our results, of which I give due credit to everyone who participated.

    If the groupwork isn't about coming to a conclusion about something, or creating novel work - but say, cleaning, construction, etc - I still like it, I usually do what's told if there's a team leader already, or (more rarely) organize the work if that's needed. More often I try to be a valuable worker who's easy to manage. Yeah, and I enjoy being around with my teammates, doing work. It's fun.

    My spouse was a PITA to work on projects with in college. He's an INTJ who loathes groupwork.

    I can do it sucessfully, but I don't enjoy it at all, unless I know the people well, and they're creative, good listeners and intelligent.
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    My biggest issue with groupwork is that there usually doesn't seem to be enough to do. I'm sitting there, discussing something I don't really care about with a bunch of people and just thinking that I could do this alone, faster (and probably better, but then the last two years of highschool I was in this really strange class where half of the class failed half of the subjects, so that's what I remember the clearest).

    If I'm working with someone who can keep up, it's okay, I guess. Still I prefer to do stuff alone (surprise, surprise).

    looking at the poll results, It's funny to see that the INTPs who disliked group work was more than 3 standard deviations.

    Not only do INTPs dislike it, they are very vocal about it.

    Perhaps an option like : dislike with extreme prejudice : is missing ...

    I must be an outlier then. I won't like all groups. Some groups are definitely worthwhile.
