    I can't imagine everyone on here is THAT stressed out about acting a bit silly in their lives.
    when I say i get bored and leave it's because they game has gone on to long, imo not because i'm not willing to pay the consequences. Plus i've almost punched people who tried to get me to give a shit about winning fucking cards, I'm playing because I want to, i don't brag when I win nor do i cry in the corner if i lose. That's the thing I don't give a shit. The game is not gonna change the world this is why competition is stupid, I don't need to prove myself to you. you don't pay me.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I dunno why people would give you shit for winning.. but, competition isn't that stupid. Especially in games. In nature most hunters learn the confidence to hunt through games. As children we learn friendly competition because there's real competition out there, and we have to learn to try our best while handling others' best with grace. Not everyone wins. I find friendly competition more than a little enjoyable, which I'm sure my type plays heavily into, but sometimes it's good to get excited about stupid stuff for the sake of just being excited and lively.

    yeah but i mean it's stupid when people get upset over the outcome. and yeah i get excited over stupid stuff, but that does not make me competetive. competition is not the only thing to get excited over.

    Nothing, .. really.
    I’ve won, and that’s enough.

    Skates can be tied around the blade of the stick in lieu of spikes. It's optional.

    Quite often after I win a game, I summarize the game shortly: "I won because I managed to keep doing this thing without being interrupted". Sometimed I give advices to people I'm playing with. Games can be seen as practicing competiviness, therefore it's okay to be open about your strategies and methods. I'd never humiliate my opponents, I'm satistified having already bested them.

    Life is chock full of illusory pressures as it is for me not to desire something like this.

    If there aren't sexual favors involved I typically don't care. I guess I play games for fun, I like money but I've never seen the point of embarassing people unless I am personally upset with them, because unhealthy Fi is vindictive like that.

    And I really really loved board games and card games as a kid. I grew up around old people so I had a backgammon set and I adored poker chips as a small child, before I could tabulate monetary value. It's funny I never became a gamer in terms of video games, never really made it too far past arcade games, you wouldn't know it to meet me now, but I went through a phase in my teens where I was by turns bored and terrified by computers (I think most people stereotype sensors this way but then the internetz added cat pictures and more people to fight with).

    I am very competitive, in a way, I don't ever like to back down from arguments to the point of it being an embarassing character flaw, and I always wanted to be a front row performer in my dance recitals, I sang solos at church, etc.

    I don't see the correlation between doing this and being competitive. Winning or being right is enough for me, success is the best revenge, if he loves me I don't get further pleasure from making him my errand boy.

    I don't care for traditional sports, but I love reality show contests like cupcake wars and summer camp, and pick sides or predict who wins like I imagine sports fans do. What you are describing sounds more like class clown stuff, like slumber party stick your girlfriends hand in cold water or write nerd on her forehead in lipstick because she fell asleep first (I mean girlfriend in the non sexual southern way, like "Hey girlfriend"). I never used that as incentives for games I just don't see the point.

    That's why you need to learn to be a magnanimous winner too.
