    There are several things I'd rather do than depend on other people to get work done to my satisfaction.
    Kantgirl: Just say "I'm feminine and I'll punch anyone who says otherwise!"
    Halla74: Think your way through the world. Feel your way through life.

    I appear to be the only real ENTP that has voted for liking groupwork . At high school I worked with an ISTJ, who was incredibly precise, and we ended up owning everyone results wise, through university during physics practicals, I was working with an INTP and an ENTP, which was a nightmare surprisingly enough (we spent way to long thinking about it and actually discovered some rather complex effects). At one point in chemistry, I worked with another EP, and that was actually great fun, and he'd go and help the girls out heaps in an odd cliche kind of way. I dislike the control side of it, those girls could probably get anything they wanted from him, and they knew it. I find it boring working alone, it sucks when you have to wait half an hour for chemicals to 'cook' and you've got nothing to do but twiddle your thumbs. I also get quite uncertain sometimes, and it's nice to have someone there who knows (or at least, seemingly knows) what to do.

    I like it too. The trick is just to make sure everyone else does their work. Usually, that means freaking them out at one point by not taking care of everything they foist upon you.

    After that, it's all gravy.

    I dislike it so much, I'm going to work with the group on this forum to chime in on what seems to be popular consensus.

    Let me tell you why teachers give group work:

    Classes are too large due to financial strains on the educational system. If you work on an individual level in a class, the talking time is much less than if you interact in groups. For language classes, it is more beneficial to have group work and increase talking time, and that's really the only way to do it in a group of 10 or more people.
    If you are interested in language, words, linguistics, or foreign languages, check out my blog and read, post, and/or share.

    There's also the job skills training aspect of education in the US - there are very few jobs where you get total individual freedom.

    I have been called the most introverted person certain people have met. There was even a time when many of my classmates thought I was mute.

    I think it has more with independent vs. participative style, than introvert vs. extrovert.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.
