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.
