I try to learn and complete everything myself...very competitive and self-driven here. I don't like others touching my car and things of that nature because I feel if I do it then it's done right and done above and beyond (very anal here about most things). I question a lot of things. I'm very resourceful and do my research. I don't like paying others to do something I could learn myself. I will use anyone and everyone to get a leg up on things I don't quite understand and want to learn. I know who subject matter experts are and I will milk them for all the information they are worth just so I can be competent in something. It's to my own benefit to collaborate with others who are like-minded and have a desire for knowledge. However I am very much a team player and will return the same level of understanding and learning to folks. No one is perfect and will know everything.

Edit: but sometimes I must prioritize like others have said but I will always try to learn a new skill when the time permits.
