1. Do you prefer working in a team environment or alone?

Top Answer
I prefer a team environment where all spokes of the wheel are turning together for a final outcome. Working alone has its benefits also if it is something that I can do very fast and be the only one with the skills to do it, but then I could always teach people what I know to help complete the project as well.
