    How strongly do you need to do things "your" way?
    I'm more like the Borg. If someone has a better idea than I do, then it gets assimilated.

    Considerations of authenticity or inauthenticity aren't factors for me. Take the path of least resistance!

    I don't really care about things going my way, it depends on the situation. I have no problem following set procedures, and I'm pretty good at it. I just won't take responsibility for a stupid method, and will probably make it known that I dont think that method is efficient.

    Wow, I actually agree with this. Things don't HAVE to be my way. I can maneuver through a system by going on auto piolet until the task is done, if I need to. However I will not become invested at all in the task at hand, and will bail at the first opportunity to switch to a situation where I either have a say or it is better constructed. Basically I will think everything I am doing while in the situation is crap. I will not take compliments on anything, and will bitch about how it could be a lot better.

    There's a reason why musicians record with producers, and writers have editors- because no matter how good you think something is, you will always benefit from the perspective of people who are more experienced than you, or simply have alternative views.

    The large man who stands alone is dwarfed by he who stands on the shoulders of giants. If you honestly think your way is always the best way, you're missing out. It's arrogant, conceited and ignorant to honestly believe that there is no way that something can be better- if you think that there's nobody around you who is good enough, you're not looking hard enough.

    I'm pretty firm about it really, after all, my way IS the right way.
