Putting it that way, pairing would not be for me. I was happy with the 
experience, but from the other's POV, I'm not one to interact on the 
"very high degree of engagement" level. It's frustrating, then, that 
there's such a high correlation between TDD and pairing in the teams of 
the roles I've come across so far.
