    Certain people like watching competitions, is it because they like uniqueness?

    People like watching competitions, and one reason given is that competitions bring out or unleash the fierce drive in people. However, this fails to explain people's loyalty to certain teams or contestants. The earliest friendly competitions appear to be provided for entertainment, possibly because the ruler likes to see who is unique; they might view uniqueness as a curiosity, or a novelty. Certain people might participate in competitions, because they like the goal-oriented aspects, and as a test of their own drive to excel. Still others might participate simply because of the need for fame or money, and the desire to improve their current situation.

    These different reasons for engaging in competitions show how different people are driven by different needs. The Reptilian-frequency based people might have a need for novelty, and see who comes out on top. The emotions-based people might compete because of their loyalty to a team or player, or due to their goal-oriented nature while the Energy-based people compete because they want to improve their situation, or improve themselves as a person.

    partly
    achievement is more important, but i guess storylines are more important than even that.
    the individual is celebrated because athletes are one of a kind, there will never be another like this or that athlete only other unique athletes who each have potential to shape the future landscape to their own will but that's more a celebration of talent than uniqueness.

    uniqueness is only interesting if the athlete is gifted, in the case of "not being a sport" it would be a gifted competitor in whatever context one wishes.

    the only difference the game being played makes is the rule set by which everyone is working with, cause the games are only made games by their limitations and the more equalising the rule set the more compelling the competition because we're actually getting to see what separates people at the top percentile (0.1%).
    and more often than not it isn't just sheer athleticism that wins out in these competitions
