I know that its good to be competitive but up to what extent?
I don't get the burn if I lose. For example, if I were driving on a four lane road (two each side), and a car had come up aside me either slowly, or fast, I usually have almost an uncontrollable urge to get ahead or past them.
If someone at the grocery store has a few items and asks kindly if they could go ahead, or doesn't and I just see they only have a few items. I will usually let them ahead of me. But if they were to just go in front of me with no interaction. I will be a bastard about it... Which, personally I think they would be to for doing it in the first place.
I do have a natural feeling to be the best I
can be. But usually
it's against myself. Although sometimes some people will automatically become a equal competitor in life's game. Whether they want to be or not. Sometimes unknowingly too.
