Re: Competition—the Struggle for Excellence or Victory?
My opinion is that this is a very interesting post! And a topic that I know very little about so thanks for the information.
First of all how would you define competition?
Does competition have to be against another individual? Could it be against oneself?
If the desire to better oneself can be deemed "competition" then I feel that the competitive nature is innate in all of us.
Humanistic psychologists, such as Carl Rogers (who had the wonderful middle name "Ransom") would probably agree. They believe the individual strives to better oneself in attmepting to grow and "self-actualise".
