So I'd like to understand.

I know you guys are competitive, but to what extent? Do you get angry when someone beats you? Does it present a challenge to you? Do you have to always win or else you flip a shit? Or is it all just fun-n-games to you?

Dunno, I've never been beaten at something that mattered to me. Other things, if someone beats me I don't get angry, but I will have the mentality that I will beat them next time and make them look rubbish in comparison, but it's more just a bit of fun than overly serious (when does an ESTP have time to be serious right?)

One ESTP I know is a complete crybaby rager when he loses. He's broken tennis rackets, chess boards, etc, and nearly broke a lever at a casino, etc. It's pretty bad. But then, NONE of the other ESTPs I know are like this (not to the extent requiring a straitjacket).

But me, I never lose, so it's a non-issue. :wink:

im extremely competitive and its pretty rare that i actually lose. but if i do, im sore loser-ish. i wont break shit but i get annoyed. although that just makes me bring my A game even more next time. and ive never lost twice in a row so yeh not really an issue :-D

I like to win but if I don't, I can only blame myself and get better. We are extremely competitive though.

It depends on what I'm playing and what the circumstances are. When I'm playing basketball or football, and I'm with a group of guys who are at my athletic level or higher, I'm definitely competitive. If I lose, I won't get mad. However, if it's a series of losses, I do get pissed. I don't get real emotional, but I may yell to play harder or give a few orders here or there. The changes I see in myself is that I get a lot more aggressive physically when I'm mad.

I tend to win most of the time. When I don't, it doesn't matter as my focus is already on the next contest.

If im competing against someone else one-on-one or with a team and I lose, I hardly ever get mad because I never take it serious

But when Im competing against myself, pushing my limits & stepping my game up, thats when I REALLY become competitive. EXAMPLE: skateboarding, snowboarding, . The sense of progression is addicting to me, when I accomplish something I want to take it FURTHER, BIGGER, FASTER. Sometimes I have a hard time sleeping because Im constantly thinking about some new tricks or trying tricks differently. Yes im very competitive but not like the rest of you are :happy:

My ESTP cousin is the perfect model of a "good sport". While fiercely competitive, he's always quick with an encouraging comment, win or lose.
