Are you cooperative or are you collaborative?
Being cooperative often means you are polite and that you share the burden with others of finding a solution.
In being collaborative you often will respectively invite disagreement as well challenge others views and opinion(s)
The difference is cooperators will stop cooperating once they have the solution they want, however collaborators won’t stop collaborating until the problem goes away.
The small distinction between cooperative and collaborative can be seem small but in reality it’s extremely large.
