  • It depends on the goal. Sometimes working alone is so much faster and more efficient. Other times, input from others is a necessity, and sometimes the best way is to work as a group. I like working with others, but often find that groups latch on to the early ideas, that are not thought through, while better ideas often come after discussion, but are frequently ignored, once an earlier, less thought through, idea is accepted. In other words, the people who are quick to speak, often have their ideas accepted, even though better ideas are proposed after some thought.

  • alone cuz i can disagree or agree with myself without some person saying the opposite. plus working alone makes you get things done faster (less talking, less "what do you think about _____?", etc)

  • It's faster alone, when I don't have to watch whether others do it right. It's much more fun to work as a group though, and in some situations, it is required.

  • Alone because I work excellent alone, groups end up frustrating me because each person will want to prove he's better, and that means the job will not be done properly at the end, because it doesn't matter who's better, it matters that the job is done right.

  • In a group, because working alone sucks ass. Am a chef and working alone is boring while am preparing meals, don't need help exactly with the preparing but few others would be working too , like table setting, bakers, the waiter, sou-chef and teamwork is nice. Although working in a group can be pain in the brain when people don't like each other and some would rather working alone. Totally get it.

  • I do prefer to work alone because I like to figure stuff out on my own and I don't like to rely on others.

    However there are times when I'm stumped and I do require assistance. I won't hesitate to ask especially if I know someone knows this better than I do.

  • It depends on the task. It's always good to have constructive input on any task but in a group scenario one person has to make the final decision on the protocols without descent from any co worker. If someone continuously challenges everyone else's input he or she needs to be asked to leave if your leading the group and find some else to replace. Being able to compromise your own personal opinions to others is important as long as the end result solves the problem.

  • For initial design of a project, I like having a group so I can get feedback. But for development I want to be (mostly) on my own.

  • It's depends on group and on a project. Some projects are best done alone. Some groups are retarded, so best is work alone. In rare cases group can work good together and only then I would work withing this group

  • Since I always agree with myself, working alone is generally easier. I get to make unilateral decisions, without having to incorporate ideas that I disagree with.

  • I can get along in groups just fine but I prefer to work alone :) Reason being I can rely on myself and my own willpower to get to where I want... Much more so than trusting someone else/ depending on other people to have the same work ethic.
