    How intense are you? An easy going person, or someone who pushes themselves intensely and wants to have something hard, wants to be in the thick of it?
    Or do you prefer the quiet life?

    Depends on the situation, really.
    I'm more competitive than not, though. I like to win.
    I hate being wrong. And I hate people who can't admit they're wrong.

    When I'm lazy, I am indifferent to the world.

    The quiet life will do me just fine. I really dont care enough about much to be competitive.

    When I want something, I want it a lot. But that isn't too often.

    I'm not very competitive. I prefer to just be myself, and do things for myself rather than comparing things to other people. I only get competitive on eBay. :p:

    I'm definitely one who looks for a quiet life over competition. I potter through life at a pace I am happy with. That's the main thing in my mind.

    Depends.

    I consider myself very calm and placid, although if I want something, then I will aim to win it, etc...

    I think some people achieve better when faced with competition, but sometimes when things are intensely competitive it can have the opposite effect with me. If I don't "beat" someone, I just accept it, and don't get worked up over it.

    As long as I'm reaching my own goals and targets, I'm not particularly fussed about what everyone else is doing, or whether I'm 'beating' them.

    If I decide to compete, then I expect to be the best. Mostly I choose to not compete though, as it involves less stress.

    This is what the person said to me after neg repping me:

    "worthless input Please go look at some trash.....oh look there is a mirror there, go look at that"

    Make of it what you want.

    I am actually really, really, stupidly competitive. Competitive to the point where I get quite stressed and worked up about it.

    If I do something, I have to do it properly, and it has to be better than everyone else. But I still like it when my friends do well as well... I woudln't like to do well at the expense of everyone else - they say it's lonely at the top :p: I like having friends who are good as well, not just because it's better competition, but because it makes for a healthy rivalry.

    I fall down on things like coursework, though. I'm just too damn lazy for that!
