  Some people actually feel comfortable when they get their work done
  efficiently and when they accomplish something.  Others seem to feel
  comfortable only when they get paid to do no work at all.

  There are studies that show that there are a number of remarkably
  different personality types.  That you keep insisting on your type is
  really pathological.  It also tells everybody that you are really average
  since no person who is even slightly different from the average will be
  able to believe that all others are just like himself.

  What makes people of different personalities work together well is
  /professionalism/.  You seem to lack that concept entirely.

Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
