    I take it as "I'm a real asshole at the workplace and I won't hesitate to stick a knife in your back to get even a little ahead."

    But when they say "I'm incredibly insecure," does that mean they're competitive? :bigthink

    it's always the people who like to portray themselves as uber confident who say it and as soon as they say it, i know the truth about them.

    I think a more honest statement would be "I'm a poor loser."

    This thread is causing me mental anguish because I don't know if I agree or disagree.

    I challenge anyone else to prove they have more mental anguish. :c

    I didn't even think about the professional aspect of it. I was thinking of just everyday fun stuff, like playing a game or sport. People who are super competitive ruin the fun.
