find out

I prefer groups because I can find out many things that I haven't thought about.

To find out means to learn or discover some information. Notice the following:

  1. She just found out she is pregnant. She is so happy!
  2. Before we book a room, let's find out if that hotel has a pool.

distracted

I feel like with groups, it's too easy to get distracted.

If you are distracted, that means you are having trouble focusing or paying attention. Notice the following:

  1. It is easy to get distracted when the TV is on.
  2. When I work, I often get distracted by the street traffic outside my window.

individualist

I am an individualist, but I also I like working in teams.

An individualist is someone who prefers to do things alone. Notice the following:

  1. Golf is a good sport for individualists.
  2. At work he is an individualist. He does not work well in teams.

power through

I'm able to just power through the material

When you power through something, you work through it with difficulty but determination. Notice the following:

  1. I was tired, but I somehow powered through all the chapters in the book.
  2. He was sick at work, but he powered through the day.

collaborate

I like to collaborate with other people and to discuss ideas.

When you collaborate, you work with others to create something. Notice the following:

  1. The two women collaborated on the book.
  2. When you collaborate with other people, you tend to get a better product.
