Why didn't you correct the teachers during the meeting?
Jilano2723213dI would have definitely said something.
VaderNT185313dEveryone sucks here.
I agree you should've spoken up to clear up that misunderstanding. Then again, so should have the 2nd semester student when he got credited for work he didn't do. And finally, the teacher should have praised the team if this project is a team effort. Singling out team members, negatively AND positively, puts everyone under pressure and sets the stage for all kinds of spiteful behaviors.
VaderNT185313d@neeno I can relate, I don't like conflict either. I have the subconscious urge to shut up which is hard to overcome sometimes. Therapy helps, and it's not a shame to get help from a professional.
Commenting on some other points from your rant:
> I do think I kinda made the right choice of keeping quiet
While it would've been quicker to clear up the misunderstanding right there and then, it's not a big deal. You were too shy or felt too uneasy, and that's okay. You are part of the equation, too.
> trying to show team loyalty (?) or something like that
Team loyalty is a good motivator. Though it a) needs to be earned and b) goes both ways. Sounds like your teammates fail in both regards. Shame, and a lot teams are like that. That's why good teams are so incredibly valuable.
