Humbleness decrease competitiveness
31 Jan 07
I think a humble person can still maintain a spirit of competitiveness. It's the way he/she handles it that will be different from those who have less humility. The humble will fight with the same persistence yet they never think of themselves as much better than the other, instead I think they will think of how to put together all the goodness from each person to make the purpose reached at best. Understanding that nobody perfect can make perfectness alone. What do you think?

I think humble person may be very competitive also, but he/she should keep him/herself strong from inner. Humbleness is the act of respect to give the others but not on the price of my respect. I will protect first my selfrespect than respect other on equal basis. It will make the balance between the humbleness and competition environment.

I don't think if you are a very humble person you can't be a competitive too. It's up for the person if he want to be a compettive to his own way. There are lots of people who are known on their field of expertise and recieved many recognition but still humble on their ways. So I concluded that maybe it is true to other situations but not in all.

I don't think so. I believe that being humble will help you be able to take a friendly and healthy competition and that will also bringabout sportsmanship which is really important in being in any competition. It will be easier to accept failure and make success sweeter and not too degrading to your opponent or competitor.

I am a very competitive person, but I don't feel that I have to win all the time. I like to give it my best and that is what makes me competitive. It's merely a friendly thing though, as I do not mind losing. I don't think humbleness plays any part in it, at least not for me.
