I had a discussion today with some co-workers about how I work. I admitted that unless I am really excited about an idea or assignment, I don't want to do it. Supposedly it's a strength and a weakness in me. For some reason I see it as more of my own apathy towards non-thinking work. I could name five things I don't like to do and they're all monotonous tasks that require no thinking.
My own apathy comes from my need to think. I can't figure out if that's a flaw or not.
