I am a 4 but I am a sore loser due to the fact that if I am in a competition, I was forced into it. That is the reason I would be a sore loser if I lost.
I would be angry if I won because of the pressure along with competition. I hate competition and see it only as a form of a power trip.
It holds no appeal for me, only disgust.
I can relate to this. the idea that someone things I need to prove myself to anyone is disgusting. true superiority does not require competition or proof

I get competitive at times when I didn't really have it mind at first. When it dawns on me that something a little more serious is suddenly at stake. I'm never sure when that is.
Games are just for fun. As long as I have that, I don't really care. It's funny though when I do win, or just play around with harmless trashtalk, how serious some people take that. And I'm supposed to be the sensitive one...
I hate it. It makes me miserable most of the time, because other people take it so seriously. I don't mind it in fun, relaxed situation though, like with board games. Anything that involves trivia, and or creative usage of words, picture or miming I generally absolutely trounce other people. Friendly competition between people I respect is good, so long as it remains friendly. I think that sort of competition extends you and is good for expanding your skill base, so long as it remains friendly. It so rarely does remain friendly. Without sounding cocky, I'm usually pretty good at most things I turn my hand at, so people if they don't know me well tend to get threatened very quickly. It gets a little tiresome, when instead of focusing on thier own game plan, they resort to sabotaging mine. I guess that's where the focus comes in for me, and I'd much rather stand back and observe what others are doing before I make my move.
Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
Real life awaits and she is a demanding mistress.
I'm not very competitive in general. Sometimes when it comes down to board games, I get pretty crazy! But in all seriousness, I don't really mind losing, as long as the person who won isn't a complete ass who is going to brag for the next week.
