• Question: in your job do you have to meet new people quite frequently? If so would you prefer working by yourself in case people interfere with your working methods?

      Most of the work that I do is being done in a team with other people involved who I sometimes never worked together with. I am often being challenged by my coworkers on my methods and beliefs, but I do not see it as an intrusion. I see it as an opportunity to question my own methods and beliefs, which may lead to improvement

      I get to meet new people every day but the team I work with is excellent. I enjoy working with other people, you can share ideas and get advice. Keeps us all on track.

      I do meet people often, however, my research is done by me so although we may talk about my work all the lab work and write up I do it myself. So it would be nice to get someone to do some of it for me I guess but I do enjoy working on my own too.

      I meet new people quite often but they don’t get to interfere with my work – instead they give me ideas and it is up to me if I want to make changes.
