    When I fail, I want it more. I starve for success. Everything else ceases to matter until I win/succeed. I can't deal with it, to put it plainly. I will run against that wall over and over again in as many different ways until I find a way to run over it/through it/under it.

    When it comes to failures with people, yes my heart is broken for a bit. Upon further analysis though, I decide that losing this person frees me somehow. I have one less tether holding me in one place, allowing me to explore elsewhere.

    I ask myself 'why?', why did I fail?. It usually always comes down to bad planning, poor judgment or not planning in sufficient detail or not taking enough information into consideration before making the plunge...not erring towards the cautious choice. That and being more pragmatic with future plans. I know all about chasing the wind.

    At times when I fail, it makes me want to try harder and persist but there is a thin line between persistence and stupidity, sometimes you have to know when to stop beating a dead horse though your pride will not have it.

    Yes, only failure and pain motivate me...........then I set about reinventing myself.

    I generally can let myself fail, until one condition gets invalidated: that someone says I couldn't do it in the first place.

    Then I get ultra driven and do whatever it takes.

    When I fail, I kinda just move on most of the time. But I'm not ENTP, I just wanted to be included.

    necromancy!!!

    meh, when I fail, I keep it quiet and secret from others if I can. And most importantly, I move on and take it into stride

    Find out the cause of the failure and remember it, but i don't aways fix it necassarily fix it lol ^u^; such as procrastination or too much pride to request help on something. I remember why, but sometimes i don't care. Very similar to what my friend once said:

    "Old enough to know its wrong, young enough to not care" or something like that :P

    I get depressed if my failures directly affects my private life. If I consider it a game then I don't care.
