I respect that Robert, I'm on plenty of shoots where it's just me or a group of friends. But Paul isn't talking about working in the industry right now he is talking about class and part of film school is learning how to work with people you might not get along great with. That's a good life lesson in general whether you're working at a desk in an office or in the field on a big film crew.
I agree with this in a way that you need to learn to just get along with people because you'll benefit more from the collaboration vs. trying to do everything on your own or wearing multiple hats because you can't stand others. The best thing that I learned is to set an example of having the mindset that everyone still has many things to learn. If you show that you have a lot to learn, then hopefully others will follow. Collaboration is truly great when everyone is learning from each other.
