I`m in dire need of a solution to this problem, with a person, whom i know for 3 years. He was my class mate for 2 years. This being the final year, we were paired for project work, at a highly reputed nuclear power plant. I haven`t met him much all these years. Now, i have no choice, but to discuss with him about the project. To my dismay, i find him not-so-interested in the project work. He seems to wander away, in his thoughts, and almost always orients himself in the negative direction. Even after doing so much for him, he`s only less bothered about our project work. I`m really unable to determine his intentions... Anybody faced similar situations??? Please help me find a solution...

So, having seen your "no response" post, I thought I'd have a look... I'd say your friend isn't doing his share of the work, from the sound of that. It also seems to me that you're the one being undermined, and he's just getting paid for being there. An uncommitted person on the job is a third wheel. Friend or not, you have work to do and a project to complete. If he's not contributing, he's part of the problem. Being negative as well is hardly an incentive to believe he's of any real use to the job. Suggest you get on with the work, and if he doesn't contribute, he doesn't get the credit. You will need to protect your own interests. It's not up to you to protect this guy from his own irresponsibility.

PS- this is a nuclear facility you're working on, not a holiday camp. If he puts so little importance on the project, it defines his value to the work.
