    If there's any possible way to do something

    better than a competitor, I find it. I don't mind putting in hours of practice or study or research. Don't tell me I can't do something - that will only make me work harder to prove you wrong.

    My two older kids ski race every season.

    After school during the winter they join their team to practice. I am a very competitive mom. I expect a lot from my kids. Tori is very gifted at skiing, she wins a lot. Pressure works a lot on her.

    Ugh, for the most part I'm not a competitive

    person but I'll have these random moments or outbursts that I will become the most competitive person ever and get so worked up over little things like an animal. Like in chem class, the teacher likes to reward people who finished balancing an question correctly first, stuff...

    I'd Like To Think

    that I don't go overboard with it. I do find myself falling into competitions, real or imaginary, to motivate myself and to have fun. I'll try to get better marks than my friends in school, but I don't throw it in anyone's faces. It's a friendly competition and we help each other...

    Sleep Is For The Weak

    I am too freaking competitive. If I don't win, I get really offended and act like a 5 year old. I just hate it! It seems like on the rare occasions that I lose, everyone gives me crap about it making it very difficult to learn to be a gracious loser. That word was about too...

    Yeah..that May Be An Understatement

    I am EXTREMELY competitive.  Especially when it comes to games.  Card games, board games, dvd games, you name it.  As a child, I don't remember the events leading up to the end precisely...all I know is a checkers board ended up torn in half :S and my sister and I...

    While I try to be a good sport,

    I absolutely hate to lose so any game I play I am in it to win... No that's not right, I'm in it to crush everyone and leave no doubt as to my absolute dominance.

    I'm not a competitive person

    until someone tells me incorrect information. Then this evil starts boiling up inside me and I have to prove them wrong. They can't just go around spouting off incorrect information. No way! That's when I become the worst version of myself. I become an awful competitive...

    I thought I should share this to all whom it

    might concern, I used to be very competitive I didnt like seeing anyone doing better than me without thinking of that person as enemy that I need to take down. As I progressed in life and in my 21st year, I realized how dumb I was. You can never ever become better if you think...

    Hi, My Name Is Leantannedguy, And I Am Competitive

    I really enjoy playing sports or watching if I can’t play. For me there isn’t anything like engaging in a friendly competition. It’s fun and it keeps me sharp. I like to win, but often don’t and that is still cool. And nearly any sport will do. Being in Canada Hockey...

    I'm always competitive

    when it comes to sports i enjoy like tennis and bowling i'll mock the other player for humor. I do it with friends because we understand humor, and have a good time. I find it funny to pick on people as long as it's not to bad.

    It's a gift and a curse.

    I remember as a kid if I got a basket id be dancing around in front of the other team yelling "THAT'S RIGHT!" Or "LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!" Lol. I'm very good at badminton, and when I used to be in doubles with my friend, I was crazy. I had a really good smash, and I'd...

    In a race everyone runs,

    but only one person gets the prize. So run to win!

    Usually my competitive ways are limited to pub

    quizzes though, even though they're a bit of fun, I hate not doing well in them. Mind you, I'm usually part of the winning team. :)

    I have to win at everything.

    Every test, game, and obstacle. I get upset if I lose, and I just feel the urge to do even better.

    I'm really competitive in a sport.

    like basketball, I can be aggressive and start yelling. I can tell people what to do. it's something about the game that I like that gets me hyper and excited that can't be controlled.

    Bringing EP to an end is an opportunity

    for competition to make the best App and website in the same category as EP. If you build something amazing, you'll have people joining by the numbers in no time. Some of us are desperate. I've seen a few places like EP but they aren't that good. Some are too limited, too dull...

    My brother and I have never had a close relationship and I think that's what drives me to try and do better than him. He's two years older but lives at home, I'm married and living miles away. I know that it drives him mad that I am careful with money and always make sure I have...

    I'm a very competitive person

    and it's not an overly good trait in my opinion, a little competition is fine but I've pushed that. Anything I do I feel like I can to do it better, looks, dance, other girls, fitness. I feel like if I'm not the best I can look better whether it's hair, make up or clothes, there...

    So my friend thinks he can out run me.

    The stats show he hasn't got a chance in hell, yet he still believes he can through determination. I play football 3-4 times a week cycle and go to the gym between, I have been doing this for at least the last 7 years. He however has done nothing and I mean nothing. Well...
