Band 9.0 Sample Answer :

I want to describe a person who I had to be friendly with although I did not like her. I think this situation is quite common in our lives, especially when we are part of a team.

A couple of months ago, I was assigned to a team at my workplace to tackle a big project. As part of the team, I had to move closely with this person. However, we had never really liked each other for several reasons. Firstly, she is much older than I am, so she always thinks she is right and disregards the opinions of others. I would describe her as both bossy and officious, although she did not have a senior position than I did in the company. Secondly, I considered her irresponsible because to me; she did not appear to pay serious attention to the project. So, although it was supposedly a group project, I ended up working on my own as much as possible to see the task through.

As the work was vital for our company, we had to be successful. Therefore, I had no choice except to collaborate with her to finish the job. I would rather have done all the work alone, but if I had refused to work with her as part of the team, then the evaluation of my job performance would have been affected at the end of the year. So, knowing her personality, I swallowed my pride and tried to be patient. Despite many arguments, we completed the task on time. I learned that sometimes people could work together, even though they don’t get on with each other. It just needs a little bit of time and patience to work things out, and each person has to compromise to achieve a common goal.
