@Paul - No - *I* won!! emoticon

I might be a teensy bit competitive, but I'm rarely a sore loser. I do tend to do a bit of trash talk though!

I am about a 6. I don't ruin the fun for others, but I can be a bit of a sore loser. I notice that I push myself harder in the presence of others.

Am I competitive.

Let me ask my wife - YES (but now in a bad way)

I am pretty competitive - I have to be the best at work and play. There is being #1 and there is losing.

Good question. I'd say I'm middle of the road so about a 5-6. I think as I've gotten older I'm less competitive because I feel like it can lead to irritation/anger depending on the person and that, to me, is just a fun killer. I'd rather have fun then win.

Also, I don't know that I do much in the way of competitive stuff anyway - unless you count a wild game of UNO - ha!

I used to be an 11 and if I am competing against my brother or someone I know well I am still an 11! Ordinarily though I would say I am a 7 or 8, I work hard to win but I don't get terribly upset when I don't. I don't cheat or try to make people on my team's lives miserable. I do try to motivate them to do their best though without being pushy...I think! emoticon

I am maybe a 6 or 7. I like to win but I am a good sport. (If you had asked me this when I was a teen the answers would be different)

I don't ruin the fun, i just try really hard to win

emoticon On a scale from 1-10 (with 1 being you couldn't care less and 10 being you're totally ruthless), how competitive (in general) are you?

How angry or upset do you get when you lose?

Do you think you ruin the fun for others by being so competitive?
