    Default SPs and teamwork

    What are your thoughts on teamwork? I personally love the idea of it, but in the end, I like working alone much better. When I'm on a team, I look for direction, which I'm almost always disappointed in. I'll ask where my efforts would best be placed, I am given a god-why-can't-you-figure-this-out kind of look, and then I'm on my own. When I'm on a team, I usually just try to look busy. But when I'm working on something all by myself, I'm a pretty efficient worker. Can others relate? And does anyone have any advice for better teamwork?

    When I think of team work, I just dread the idea. I think back to high school, being put in groups and having to do all the work for everyone else because I wanted to do it by myself anyway, and everyone else would just write their names on my work. Irritating.

    I do like doing things with others though... like if I'm cooking and my boyfriend is grating cheese, that's really fun. I feel like we're a great team when we cook together or work together in other similar ways. We don't tell each other what to do, we just work symbiotically.

    Why sit around and argue with thirty some odd people about the way to do it, when I can get it done in half the time and my way?

    I can cope alright though prefer to be active and busy doing things whilst others ponder over minor details. Details are definitely important but I find that most of my collegues dwell too long on it. In general I work best alone with feedback from the team.

    Thanks to everyone who posted. Like you, maliafee, I find it very pleasant to cook and do other similar tasks in exactly the way you described. It's fun and natural that way. It's only with bigger projects that I have a difficulty. :P

    When you put it like that, hell yeah, why would you?
