I've pretty much been a fierce competitor as long as I can remember. No matter how trivial the game or competition, I end up putting everything I can into it and being extremely pissed if I'm on the losing end. If I end up the winner, I don't gloat or brag or anything, but am happy with the victory.

Case in point....tonight we had a basketball game (intramural) and I ended up being furious at my team for pretty much givin up when we were down by 5 with a minute to go. I didn't scream at anyone or anything, but finished up the game (we lost ) and walking back without saying a word to anyone.

Yes yes, I know, it's just a game, but I guess it's in my nature to be ridiculously competitive.

Anyone else like this?

We played the game called scene it at my bosses house one night. I flew off the handle when my team didn't win. I go overboard with my competivness sometimes.

I'm very passive and uncompetitive.

These two ARFCOM tools can't seem to let the competition go...

I'm generally very laid back, but it burns my ass that I have finished either 4th or 5th (out of 500 riders) EVERY TIME I ride in this big local bike race - which is the only bike race I ride in. Three years in a row now, I have tried to make it onto the podium, and every freakin' year I'm just barely out of medal contention!! Last year, and the year before, I was freaking 4th place!!

But this is going to be the year !!!! (... yeah, that's what I said last year, and the year before)

When I was younger (20's) I only played for fun. Now I HAVE to win and will play until I do so.

My relay team came in 6th in the "Big Boys Relay" when I was in 5th grade. Didn't really bother me, though.

I don't have a competitive bone in my body.

I have the ribbon around here, somewhere....

I might be if I actually cared about anything.

I'll admit I'm probably too competitive and often a perfectionist. It can be good sometimes, but can also lead to unwarranted or particularly harsh self-criticism. Ask me how I know.

I'm fiercly competitive with myself if that makes any sense.

I keep a running score of how many times i've beat my fiancee at ping-pong up on a big sheet of paper stapled to the wall in our living room.....it's currently at 24-4.

I'm very, very competitive.

I had a buddy in the army who broke up with his girlfriend (and refused to drive her home, so she had to walk to the bus station) because she couldn't answer a trivial pursuit question that he thought was easy - and so they lost a game to another couple.
