This has happened to me when I have tried to work on a project with someone who is demanding, a speed demon, perfectionistic, emotional and who blames me for things that go wrong. Your sense of urgency may not always match hers. You might want to hold a short meeting of the minds and, without being judgemental, find the best way to empower the both of you so that the project can be finished. Assign tasks, milestones, time for review and try to treat each other with respect and kindness. In the end, the completed project will speak well for each of you and hopefully you will have learned something about yourself.
