Thanks everyone for the feedback.
I am not totally against the concept of pair programming and have found it useful mainly for training and small pieces of code. What I do hate dislike is having to pair with someone all day every day with only small breaks.
As Neil points out I don't think that programmers should be forced to do something they are not comfortable with and I am still not sold on the idea of two being better than one.

However, your refusal to subscribe to the dogma of pair programming does NOT make you a bad programmer. Nobody has a right to make you feel guilty or ashamed because you don't enjoy something that -- for you -- is an unnatural act.
