Do you collaborate without compromise? Do you transcend the limits of your egocentric perception and existing knowledge, pool your ideas with other thinkers and strive together toward a shared objective or outcome?

- Is that the best solution we can come up with? I don't want either one of us to compromise - I want us to find an option that is better than what either one of us could come up with on our own.
