If there’s anything that our schools had actually taught us, it’s to choose our teammates well. Unless it’s randomly picked or is assigned, then… good luck!
Whether you’re working on your thesis or a simple exercise, group works can either be hell or heaven, depending on the members of your teams. Here are 8 types of people that you’re bound to meet during these seasons for cooperation!
The pace of your progress all depends on this person. If your leader is good at delegating tasks and managing your time, then rest assured that your group is bound to finish with flying colors — that is if you do your assigned tasks well.
One of the most essential members of every team is the one who has a reliable printer and a life-time supply of bond paper. Besides cutting back on cost, having someone with this perk also means you won’t have to line up in a computer shop for hours.
Another essential part of group projects is to have someone who is willing to lend their home for when the team has to pull an all-nighter. Kudos to them if they serve you midnight snacks while you work.
The late comer who’s favorite line in your group chat is “on the way na po” every time they’re asked where they are. We always forgive them though, as long as they showed up and helped, right?
The Speaker of the House
You know this one. They’re the one with heaps of confidence and a voice that’s always at max volume. This person’s the one everyone turns to as soon as the professors calls out your group.
The Sugar Daddy/Mommy
Funds for your materials? Need a ride going places? There’s always that one member of the team that’s willing to cover all the needs of the group. Though that’s probably going to be their only contribution.
That one person who goes around the room sitting with random groups to gather ideas (and gossip) just to report back to their own team and construct their plans around their newly-acquired info.
Do we even have to explain this one?
Well, this kind of people are the ones who only showed up once — when the groups were first formed. You’ll never see them again until the end of this project.
Sounds familiar? Share this with your former groupmates!
