List Rules Competitive people: vote up the little things in life that you HAVE TO win/beat/be good at.
Why are people so competitive? Show us a person who doesn’t like competition and we’ll show you someone that’s afraid of losing. We know that makes us sound like a total psycho but there’s nothing wrong with wanting to be the best at something, whether it’s playing chess in the park or being able to name every member of the bridge crew on Star Trek: The Next Generation. The feeling of stiff competition is like the thrill of the hunt for many, especially those type A folks. Once you’ve had a taste you want nothing else. And even if you’re reading this and thinking to yourself, “I’m not a wacko competitive person,” YOU’RE WRONG! Take a look at this list of things competitive people care about and we’ll bet that you’ll find something on there that gets your engines firing.
Competition can come in a variety of forms. It can be anything from playing a board game, to eating food, to pushing yourself to do better despite whatever odds you’re facing. And even though competition can be a good thing, in our experience it usually ends in someone screaming, and maybe even breaking the thing they were using to compete. About half of the things on this list half definitely ended in a couple of screaming matches, and we bet some of them are going to surprise you.
Vote up the items that you think matter the most to the competitive personality and if there’s something that you just have to win at, add it to the list.
