Are you a competitive person? Is this with yourself or with others? Do you need to win? Or do you simply need to outdo yourself? I used to be REALLY competitive with others. Even at work. I worked for a call center and your goal was to have the lowest avg call time. I had the lowest on my team until this new young guy came in. Then he beat my time. We began competing to get the LACT but also to have the most customer appreciation certificates. I have since grown out of that. I am still competitive with myself though. I need to do better that I did the time before. This might be daily, weekly, or monthly. But I have that desire to beat my previous acheivment. So how about you. Are you competitive?

I think I've already answered that question in your other post:) Yes I'm competitive, with almost everything I do, and it's with other people more than myself. I don't think I'm overly competitive, I'm not going to cry or throw a fit if I don't beat another person. I think a bit of competition is a good thing, as it gives you something to strive for and better yourself.

I knew you would like this question. lol I agree though. I think a little bit of competitivness can drive you to reach higher goals. It can bring out the best in you if kept in check. Sometimes it is kind of fun to have a bit of friendly competition. :)

I think that I am more so competitive with myself than with others. In games I am somewhat competitive though, but not generally in life itself.
