Are You Too Competitive For Your Own Good?

You got: You're insanely competitive — and maybe a little insane.

It’s not about how you played the game; it’s about whether or not you won. You don’t celebrate bullshit “moral victories” because you know that is a made-up term for losers. You don’t even let your grandma win at cribbage. You still remember losing a kickball game in third grade, and it drives you to this day.

You got: You’re not “competitive.” You are just really, really good at things.

You’re gifted and you play fair. You didn’t set out to be the best at everything — it just sort of happened. Winning really isn’t important to you, but when there’s a winner and a loser you're typically the former. Sports, school, and success come naturally. No one holds your general awesomeness against you because you’re generally awesome.

You got: You have a chip on your shoulder and sometimes it drives you to extremes.

You were told you were not good enough so many times growing up that the chip on your shoulder developed into a boulder. You live to prove those smug dumbasses wrong. You know the true meaning of hard work and it’s gotten you where you are in life — the top. You love to win because you earned it, and the haters can kiss your ass.

You got: You're pretty damn ruthless and it scares people.

You’ll do anything to gain a competitive advantage — and why wouldn’t you? Losing is obviously never an option and sometimes that means hiding an ace up your sleeve, tripping someone “by accident,” or quitting the game when you know you aren’t going to win. You know sometimes you need bend the rules to get what you want — and it's not cheating if you don't get caught. Winning and all the spoils of victory are your drug and it’s an addiction you don’t plan on quitting.

You're pretty damn ruthless and it scares people.
