*I am quite capable of working alone for extended periods but I prefer working in small groups and periodic review/criticism. Also working alone(in a void) for a long time tends to get boring.
 
*I prefer to have a sort of holistic view of the work ahead but prefer to write code iteratively/incrementally with small improvements and testing between each step. I usually jot down my algorithm and functional blocks on paper before I start writing the code. Also usually I tend to prefer simple working algorithms(even if the have poor performance) initially and to later replace them with more complicated but efficient ones.

*I don't mind throwing out chunks of my work if it doesn't fit with the overall project. I have worked in a student run lab for 5 years and we did on occasion have to chuck out weeks worth of work but what I learnt from it was that the effort is never wasted and that dumped code tends to find applications elsewhere later.
