Is it easier for you to work together with other people or to work alone?
My confession for the day is I don’t work well with others. If I have the choice, I always choose to work alone. Of course, sometimes it’s not possible to do it by myself. Occasionally at work, I know that I can’t lift a resident that weighs more than 150 pounds out of their wheelchair. If only I were an ant, I could lift my own body weight. Instead I’m just a person with limitations.
In English grammar class, the professor seemed to have us work in groups on a daily basis. One day, I could not take any more group activities so I refused to participate. I wasn’t learning anything. It was infuriating. At the time, I didn’t understand why I disliked working in a group. I had heard of introverts and extroverts but I didn’t know what that meant in reality. Basically, it means that I don’t play well with others. It’s taken a long time but I’m okay with going solo.
