Teamwork works both ways. Yes, Barclay's withdrawn attitude and antisocial behaviour make him the weak link among the engineering staff, but at the same time his co-workers could try working with him, drawing him out of his reclusiveness and encourage him to give his input, to make him part of the team. Isn't that basically the point of Hollow Pursuits?
Exactly. It's easy to single out the one person in the group who's not like everyone else, but it takes real effort to make that same person into a valuable member of the team. Guinan had it absolutely right when she told Geordi the story about her aloof relative. Everyone has the potential to be something more than they are: it's merely a matter of pushing the right buttons to draw them out of their shell.
