Woring by my self was the best way to stay positive while working at miami university. I did work well with others, but there was much gossip and others did not like that I rarely asked others for help, unless I needed help to not injure myself. When you are the person doing the work, you know what has been taken care of! Unless you have solid work relations with your co-worker and trust is not an issue. You can only assume and we know where that leads.
