You need to pick a group for a class project, and one of your classmates asked to be in your group. You’ve worked with him several times in the past and know that he doesn’t really focus well at group meetings and that he likes to put things off until right before the deadline. Both characteristics go against your own work style and you explain this to him, saying that it’s probably best that you aren’t in the same group. He tells you that he can change how he works. More importantly, he tells you the same things that he has told you in the past when you tried rejecting him from your group.
