I find moments where I enjoy both, but I tend to be of the camp of working by myself.
I am what some people call a "Pidler" or a "Putterer" but in the best of ways. I like to take my time, enjoy the breeze, get distracted by 15 things, and then come back to the same thing and ponder. This is mostly because I have the outcome in my brain, but don't know how to use my hands to get there. A little work here, a little work there. Take a half hour or so to cool my temp when I get frustrated because I know I will cause more damage if I continue. The usual!
