    Im a competition whore, you should see me on video games I believe ive become good at...
    "An upsidedown wire heart
    Being sucked into a periscope
    Still the mind is dull
    Like you need another excuse"

    … a theory is primarily a form of insight, i.e. a way of looking
    at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
    .. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
    different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
    domain in which it is clear and adequate….
    - David Bohm

    If it's with a close friend or like family, I'm fine...I'm currently in a competition with my ISTJ friend.

    I just hate feeling embarrassed, I feel embarrassed if I lose or suck at something, publicly.

    I love all these ENxP 7w6s! Super cool...I wish I could meet you all :-) To answer the question, though, I totally do NOT like competition. I like distinguishing myself and being noticed for my uniqueness, and I can feel jealous of others in this area, but that's as far as it goes. I don't enjoy actively trying to get ahead of others in any way, shape or form. I think it makes me feel like my flaws are exposed, and also it almost makes me feel like confrontation does...just embarrassed and less capable than if nobody were paying any attention.

    I enjoy some competition. I'd say I'm moderately motivated by it.

    I mean, who as a teen in the 90s didn't have some No Fear shirts to show everyone just how much of a badass competitor you are?

    No. I like competition. Correction: I like winning.

    I am highly competitive.. I don't like to lose, if I compete against others I'd like to try my best and hope I at least come ahead of some of the people participating. I enjoy a healthy dose of it.

    But I do not enjoy competition at the cost of other things, like friendships, family, etc. When competition gets in the way of things like being able to communicate with others and starts making people really bad I lose my taste for it. I don't like competition in, say, my best friend and I were to like the same guy.. I'd bow out. It wouldn't feel right. Or where my sister and I were both gunning for the same job.. I'd step out and try to help her instead. But if it were my best friend, my sister, and I all racing or trying to compete for the highest score in a class.. I am all game.
