    Default Competitiveness


    So here I am, just posting on eoff and then this mothersmurfer comes in acting like he owns the place. Did you not see my thread count? Did you think you could just walk in here and take my top spot? Who do you think you are?!

    So then of course, I had to take my spot back and make more threads.


    SO I'm like, ahh, all is good in the world. And then I look over at this guy trying to creep up on my top spot. Who do these people think they are? Had to fix that and posted some more to retain my top spot.


    I get weridly competitive about some of the most inane trout. I made it my mission to be ahead of my sister on the puzzle app Cookie Jam. It's always the most basic things that really don't matter that I take pride on being first in. It's never about important things that may benefit from me being competitive over.

    What are you weirdly competitive about?

    Any sort of game I play. Don't hang out with Dat Matt and me and play games. We're terrible when we're opponents, but even worse when we team up together.

    I sometimes get hyper competitive and it is one of my worst character traits, as I can turn into a complete arsehole to friends and foes alike. If I get sucked into an argument (usually with a loved one makes me worse about this) or alternatively if there's a game I'm obsessed with and things aren't going my way - Halo and FIFA being the ones that really bring out the monster in me which is why I don't play them anymore! - I become an actual psycho. I also stopped playing Mafia at EoFF for this reason too.

    I don't care about post counts though so you're all good there!

    I am the least competitive person there is. I challenge anyone who thinks otherwise.

    Yeah yeah, that's something someone who's trying to lull me into a false sense of security would say.

    Very rarely am I competitive. Bugs me when people are too competitive too. Like, we're all having a fun time playing games and then one person goes and kills the buzz with their over the top serious reaction to losing.

    Take a breath and crack a beer, man!

    I have flashes of competiveness that can get ugly, but it's a nuanced type. I don't get angry, I get increasingly disappointed at myself for playing/doing badly, until I just become rather dejected. And it's not so much about 'being first', but more, 'not being last'. As long as I'm not the worst at something, I'm fine. But if I'm losing - especially if I'm losing badly, I just get morose.

    I'm not competitive. Imagine how winning all the time would make me arrogant. ME.
