Are you a team player or a loner? In the workplace, I can be a team player..to some extent. Now that I am in school and have a lab, it is a different story. I had my first lab yesterday. I managed to get myself paired with some guy fresh out of high school. That in itself did not bother me. In fact I thought it would be most useful due to my huge gap in education. We chatted for a bit. I told him about my educational background, what my major is and what my work experience has been. He made the comment "Wow, you sound smart". Yes, I am not a moron. But, I am not a team player. I can get along with people but my work is mine. Good or bad, it is my product. I didn't relay this to him. The last thing he asked the prof was if the lab had manditory attendance. I am so screwed.
