    I'm supposed to be learning about the benefits of groups, but all I keep finding are all the ways group members can be shitty: the absent member, the member who went to China and never came back, the sarcastic guy who ignored my texts, the person who ran away from our group to avoid social interaction, the left over partner no one else wanted and I begged to join another group but couldn't because of the left over guy... yay group work

    The best thing about group work is that you'll usually have that guy in the group that really cares that the job gets you just wait for him to take care of it.

    I'm the guy in the group who will sit there quietly, and come up with a cohesive and nearly complete project myself whilst my group talks back and forth about whatever half backed bullshit they've come up with. The professor then comes by, comments positively on what I've created as if it were the result of teamwork, and the rest of the group just goes with it from that point. This has, far too often, been my experience with group projects in engineering.

    Group projects without having a boss figure who actually has some real authority, most of the cases like 90% of the time will end up being a miserable project. Because everyone likes their own ides but no one wants to really work on them. On my experience, in order to make those projects less miserable or even successful is to all agree on the first meeting to who the "boss" is going to be. If you're lucky to choose the right one, you'll get through it, I mean there will always be some arguments and bad ideas but it'll be much easier if one person takes the wheel. Let your pride float away people. Stop being your own enemy.

    When I had to do group projects. I'd usually do the whole project on my own, then wait for everyone else to fail at their part (meaning they usually wouldn't bother to do their part or were mide blowingly inept), hand in the completed project, then receive the lowest mark out of the whole "team" because I'm disabled and it was clearly assumed that the rest of the group carried MY weight. Later on in school I would deliberately be the odd man out just so I could get the credit and marks I deserved, but of course some teachers would deduct marks solely because I was not in a group. Fuck group projects.

    I can't trust anyone and others can't trust me too lol.
    All people get lazy when the project start and it become very unoroductive activity.

    I don't know who came up with this Theory but they need to get their head out of their own ass, there's no such thing as human Ingenuity or even group projects as being genuinely useful. I think the school system just does it so that they can prove that no matter where you go to work or who you meet, you're always going to be by yourself and ultimately disappointed in the rest of Humanity. Several times throughout my life I have not only prove that I'm far more engine you would have by myself, but I also knew that just because I acted differently meant that people thought that they can take advantage of me by making me do all the work without actually knowing. I then decided to make it very clear to the teacher that I did everything, yes it's a douchebag move, but it all timidly pays off because I get the great and everyone gets to learn never to trust the one person you put all the work on beforehand. Cuz revenge is a b**** and so am I, however sometimes it could be that one comes in the group that decides to take all the credit even though jackfuk. I remember one time a Spanish video project was assigned to six kids, me and for other people or far too busy for the rest of the week to even focus on this project and we made it extremely clear to the teacher that nearly all of us in the group had other things to do after school so nobody would be able to do the editing or even the filming for that matter and on top of all that everyone of us live very far away and we couldn't find a place to meet up. One kid in our group with a broken arm to literally didn't do anything but just sit there kind of looking like a c*** hole decided to take all of the ideas that everyone was contributing on the first day, do the video all by himself without notifying anyone, and essentially taking all the credit, this a****** had all the Time in the World to do all of this stuff, but didn't run buy us to notify us anything. Instead this little a****** took all the credit and said that everyone just decided not to talk to him which was a lie because we didn't know who this kid was and he didn't give us his phone number on the first day of the project and all of us were equally worried cuz the teacher was a massive a****** and she would fail anyone she didn't like. She was so surprised that this kid did the work all by himself, even though he stole all of our ideas, she gave him five a pluses. I told my mom about this and she was ready to complain to the principal until she redacted for the A+ is giving the kid one A Plus, the parents of the other kids were ready to complain to the school board for doing something so stupid but the teacher gave a really weird excuse. I don't remember what this excuse was but it all to mately led to everyone in our group failing this project and permanently becoming enemies with that one kid with a broken arm, I even remember one guy who was extremely worried about the project who was in the high school band and had to do music practice throughout that week stalking him and throwing eggs out of his window for nearly about a month. Honestly he kind of deserved it for taking all the credit.

    Group work. I either do all the work or I find out I'm not the "smartest one" and actually learn something and feel relief as I'm now not the person doing all the work. My ego takes a bit of a hit though if I find out I'm the "dumbest one".

    In group work, I’m usually the brains of it all, and work out a model that plays to their strengths and weaknesses. I give the artsy kid illustrations, the not so smart kids get less of the project to do, smarter kids get more parts, and I usually either give myself the usual work for one of the smart kids and also the extra pieces if the parts don’t divide evenly. I typically try to get things done a few days in advance, so that I can go over everything and correct what mistakes that there are. In the end, there’s so much that needs to be corrected that I end up with like 60% of the work, if not all.
