It seems this thread has a flaw. It seems that an underlying assumption is
the only choices available are competition or cooperation. I can think of
many alternatives to this dichotomy.

For example, isn't avoidance or passive observation available? How about
co-opting? While I see this thead as important, how important is
cooperation next to, sya, commitment, competence, task completion.
Sometimes, I see work teams bog down while engaging in discourse over team
dynamics. The fact of the matter may be a project never gets past this
point and the lost opportunity is costly.
