    Never lost before, so I don't know.

    Actually, I don't get upset from losing itself. I see it as an opportunity for improvement. My attitude is more dependent on how the winner behaves when he wins.

    There's nothing wrong with gloating and giving someone the high five if you do win.

    I remember once I was in court for a speeding ticket, and the judge took my side to the police officer, and when the trial was over, I went over to shake his hand, and he left in an angry rant without shaking my hand.

    I thought, "What an unprofessional dweeb." and chuckled to myself.

    I've always had the philosophy that if someone is right and better at you than something, then better learn from that individual. However, with my particular INTJ friend, I think now he's holding a slight grudge towards me!

    I sense some jealousy issues on his part, but I haven't brought it up.
    Diplomacy? *looks confused*

    I'm not *mean* to someone who beats me. It doesn't happen often enough.

    Seriously, when I lose, it's usually that I'm pissed at myself for not doing better than I did, not at the other person for doing better than me. I'd always explained it this way: I don't want to win because the other person does badly. I want them to do well, too. I just want to do better.

    I feel that way in competitive sports. I don't need to be No.1. But you don't get better at tennis by playing with a partner you can always beat.

    Playful gloating is fine. But some are really smug and will hoot and holler for so long that they risk suffocation.

    Heh, I didn't think of it, I just played around with one of my brother's ideas. And technically, it's teleportation though quantum means.

    I guess my record remains clean. *poke*
