For some it is not enough to beat someone at a simple board game, or an intense rivalry between athletic enemies, or take a bite out of someone’s ego or sense of self by showing them up intellectually or by getting a better score on a test. Some people must win, if they’re going to win, by a considerable margin or they don’t feel they’ve won At all. This behavior is unfortunate in that it hurts those this kind of person competes against, it hurts that person themselves, and there is usually collateral damage to spectators, or, more tragically, to the environment. Because these people adopt a ‘win at any cost’ attitude everything around them tends to become inconsequential during the heat of the time it takes to win or lose whatever game is at hand. These people play with a single-minded and narrow focused concentration while they are playing, but they are not engaged in competition all the time. Those who are vengeful players or feel they have been wronged in some way and must seek and have revenge that are the most dangerous, since they will use any strategy or employ any tactics to gain and keep the upper hand, up to and including complete destruction. We all have the potential to become out of control and dangerous in the extreme; it is important to stop and study our reactions when we become annoyed or angry – could we let anger become so focused that we’d give everything to get our way?
