Default Re: Competition—the Struggle for Excellence or Victory?

If anyone disagrees that competition is not innate, then please let me know.


Seeing that competition must be learned, and has not only been learned, but is engrained in the American Society, it would be helpful to understand the usefulness of competition, in order to assess whether Americans should consider abandoning their past time “obsession”.

For those that have read my articles on goal orientations and intrinsic motivation, this will look familar to you. Otherwise, I would advise reading them in JHR.

I'll post more in a bit.

Matthew 7:20
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
