    Yes. Sometimes I give myself a handicap if the other person is considerably less skilled (especially if a child). If it's an argument and there is no clear right and wrong, Iwil sometimes let the other person have their way, just to be considerate.

    I always let children win, but make them work for it.

    In arguments? I never back down.


    Ever. Unless I have been proved wrong...and as long as it is not publicly displayed that I was wrong, I let the other person "win". But if they do it in front of people? OOoOOo, I will bring up things that have no relevancy just to make them look stupid -- and thereby WIN! It's evil, but I really don't like a lot of people knowing when I am wrong.

    Games? I am an intense competitive person -- sports especially. I hate losing and refuse to lose.

    My boy has this motto, "I never lose". Mine is, "I always win." Bahaha, it's quite...interesting around us to say the least.

    *Let* someone win? Never (cases with children possibly excepted). But when it comes to games and such, that doesn't mean that I'm particularly invested in the outcome, either. In discussions, I'm a bit more dogged about it, but can be convinced if the circumstances warrant it. In general I'd say that I'm neither a pushover or a poor sport about it. One of my few redeeming qualities .

    In inimportant things, I will let the other win if they ask for me to let them win, or do it unasked if we are talking about a child under the age of six.

    For important things, I might sometimes give the impression that the other person has won (or at least that I haven't won) if things escalate to the point of abusive, but it is never more than a slight impression.

    Never. I think it's insulting to 'let' someone win, because it's as if you don't think they can beat you without a handicap.

    Interesting. I appreciate you all taking the time to respond to this.

    It's something I'm curious about because I almost always lets someone else win. When I was a teenager I was very competitive and after a while I found that I could win at just about anything. After enough of that I started to enjoy seeing someone else enjoy a little victory of their own (especially people who seemed to have so few in their life) more than winning, so I would never put forth my full potential. I still have my same drive to accomplish things when they're important, though. On occasions I will do my best (and sometimes I still find a challenge) so that in the back of my mind I still know I'm the top dog. It's something I've never talked about until now, and admittedly I wonder what it means. Does this mean I lose my ENTJ card? Have I lost my edge?

    Funny you should say that... there was ONE thing I would regularly lose at and that was chess vs. my best friend. We would play every day over lunch. At first I would win but then he read a bunch of books on chess strategy and totally kicked my ass henceforth. I will have to remember to visit the chess club next time I need a healthy does of humiliation.

    Hmm... I usually don't care for actually "winning" an argument. I'm more likely to either

    1) Ignore the person who's trying to argue with me
    2) Agree to disagree

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.
