    I am in INTP. It depends on the people I work with and the pace they work with. If it matches my own, I like it. If not, I dislike it.



    In most cases in real life I've disliked it, though not always. Still I'll vote that.

    It depends on the people in the group. Sometimes if they know what they're doing and are hard workers, then tasks can be accomplished much more efficiently than alone. However it can be a disaster if people don't pull their weight. There are more than couple people out there that don't like me because I got pissed when they didn't want to do anything. When it comes down to a big project, I don't mess around.

    I'm an INTP and I LIKE group work.

    Of course it depends on the work, but I have found that if I am willing to work with people smarter than me, I can learn a lot.

    always the same: either I realize they're better than me and feel like I'm holding them back or, more often, they hold me back, and I then have to sit through an explanation of how our project coulda been better if they'd just listened to me, which they'll never admit

    I DO!! i dislike any organized gathering at all. never been once to a book club either though that's the big thing in the mom world. i have horrible (PTSD? haha) memories of graduate school and having to do group 'work' (what an effin joke--like a group of cattle can get any real work done?) and there was this drop-out philosophy major girl (ntp?) who thought she was in charge of everyone and she was always trying to boss me and everyone around and stuff and we were always getting in these little uncomfortable situations and she thought she knew everything and i hated it so much. sorry.....*pops another valium* ahhhhhh. sigh.

    i do like potlucks but that's about it.

    everybody likes potlucks. it's the good(usually) food. screw the social aspect, just give everybody the 'smile and nod' treatment. eat food, go home.

    i usually end up organizing one or two potlucks each year around here cuz all the e's are too busy. i love seeing everyone but then i feel guilty if someone leaves and i haven't been able to have one-on-one time with them. and i find it kinda hard to mingle.....i usually end up clumped up with one or two people cuz i get overwhelmed. yet i feel driven to have them nonetheless.

    Oh dear - group work, the bane of my life.

    I've had to frequently get involved in group work during a recent course. 75% of the group members are normally incompetent. The large majority of the time, I am put forward as project manager. As was mentioned in a previous post, I get really frustrated with the idiots, and feel guilty when I know there's someone that's better than me.

    Yes, I can work with people, no I don't need to prove this, and yes if you don't do what I tell you to do I'd like to fire your ass.

    The most excruciating example was this semester when I was studying on a module with someone I work with. The colleague would not get involved in the project, would insist on doing their own thing and not contributing to discussions. I couldn't say a damn thing as I had to work with them. It really tested my powers of diplomacy.
