• It's Healthy And Beneficial For Life.

    People can grow more critical thinking, and it helps them think faster and smarter. It also prepares everyone for the distant future, with their businesses. Without competition, everything would be too easy, which is bad for our society. With competition, people can feel a sense of achievement whenever they beat the opponent.

  • Competition is needed

    Competition, the act of striving to beat competitors or what one has accomplished. We see this throughout the world and frequent in our everyday lives. Competition is very important; allows us to gain strength and build confidence, encourages us to try harder to do our best, it has taken us through history to the advance world we have today.

  • Competition is lies within us

    Okay let us face it nobody ever bacame known as a genius or became rich by doing the same thing as the other guy. There would be know progress exploration bcause there would be no competion. W would be too busy making sure we dont hurt somebodies feelings. Basically without compettio we would probably still be apes.

  • Competition is 100% necessary

    Competition is fantastic for everything and the fact that capitalism encourages it is what makes capitalism so effective. By competing against others, we improve ourselves and others, it brings out the best in people. We want to SUCCEED. If we didn't have competition, we wouldn't have achieved nearly as much as a species and our lives would be much worse off. What, if anything, is not a result of competition? Yes, for things like sport and other recreational competition, you should understand that losing or winning does not define you and that you should not let a loss ruin your life. But losing is essential to improving, while there will always be a loser, the human drive to improve is what pushes us forward.

  • Competition Lets Us Grow

    If you are competing against other people, you are all pushing to be better than those around you and it makes you more creative as you try to think outside of the box to try to get ahead. Also, competition is a part of human nature. All through history people compete and compare against other people.

  • Competition is good

    It generates challenge. Without any challenge in life, life would be useless. It is because if there is no challenge, people won't be able to acknowledge smart people and also people not as smart which allows people to know what to teach to the students. It is useless to teach what people already know

  • Competition makes people rude

    Let's say if I play good soccer and the other person doesn't and we play a matach with each other,but the person is older than us.Pretend if the person has lost he will think that you have cheated because he is older than you...How could I lose! He would think."he must have cheated." And then he will start bullying you and other people will laugh at him because of losing to you.And that's why I think that if you compete everyone should come with good attitude....But they don't and that's why I think competition should not be done

  • Competition does more good than harm

    In early times even if a person use to have higher secondary degree or an simple graduation degree he could easily get into a well serving job like bank, schools and many other.The reason why they use to get jobs so easily was that at those time only a handful of people use to go for higher studies and rest of the other use to get into family business or other occupations like agriculture ect.
    But as time passed people started to learn the importance of education and started supporting their children to go for higher education. Now this created a new problem as at a sudden time there were many people in the market with the same educational qualification and for the same post which resulted in a big problem of how to choose the best candidate for the post .
    And then was the idea of competition came in mind . I feel the competitive exam are a better way to select a person for a particular post, as by taking the exam the examination committee gives equal opportunity to everybody who is with the minimum qualification to appear in the exam .
    And if they are able to get in by these exams they are to face other levels of qualification exams and are eligible to get in. I feel this is the best method by which one can prove itself and the exam taking committee can get waht it wants according to its choices

  • Why would people not want competition?

    Competition is one of the best things in the world. We could all be sitting in a chair right now, at home, and be lazy and not do anything. It also helps us do work. Lets say that there is a new person working at your job, and it looks like that they are doing a better job then you. You would want to be better then that person in your job. That is competition. If you are in school and there is a kid that says that there is a kid that wrote an amazing paper a day be fore it was due. You will probably go and look at your paper and try to make it better then the other kids. There is another example of competition. There are so many things that people do that involves competition. So the people that say that people say that competition is bad for you. They are probably have some competition in there lives too.

  • It makes you shoot for higher than what is needed.

    In my personal experience it makes you go for gold. I was always pretty good in school, then me and my friend started competing academically and in sports. Now we're about equal in sports and the lowest grade I have is 98% and highest is 119%. His lowest 99% and highest is 124%

  • It causes more harm than benefit

    I believe in healthy competition and being the best that you can be. Competing to improve yourself and being content with who you are.But unfortunately, almost no people adapt this type of mindset. Instead, we're always trying to be better than the next guy, but for what purpose? Everyone is unique so why try to be the better than everyone at everything instead of being the best that you are capable of? Everyone has different skills and strengths and areas where they excel in, so there will always be someone better than you; people have to accept this instead of stressing out over being better than others . The " I have to be better than everyone else" mindset just causes problems and creates more harm than benefit. Competition attempts to determine your self worth over what others think of you, which is exactly the type of mindset that is ruining society. We need to learn how to cooperate and accept ourselves instead of constantly trying to outdo each other .

  • Everything could be done together, is it even possible though?

    Well, first in my mind what comes up is that if there was no competition then not they the world would not have great achievements. Achievements are gained when you think of an idea and try to do it before your opposing team does it.

    Firstly, everything could be done without and competition and hate. If we all work together we will get ideas about our next discovery quicker than staying in a minor compact area of employees. If we all work together we could finish our project quicker with more efficiency and not only that we would also be able to understand a problem and share it amongst each other.

    Secondly, however if we don't have competition we would still fight about what wrong and right and sometimes people may even decide to leave to start their own business and this way competition could be created but we could apologize to the person who is against the company and tell them the importance of them and try to fulfil their needs if it is possible.

    Finally, I am on the yes side because after all about staying together if there was no competition all the prices in the store would be the same, in every store you find the prices so high, all the prices would rise up and many disadvantageous things would happen to the consumer. How ever people do became selfish overtime during competition and comparison awakens up and quickly rises to a level where it's unstoppable.

    In conclusion I believe that competition should stay as it has no benefits to the consumer if there was no competition.

    If you read the whole thing then have a good day. IF NOT still have a good day.

  • It is a terrible thing

    And many people still don't know why there are millions of people that commit suicide every year. Some people still wonder why bulling occurs, still wonder why america is wasting billions of dollars on wars, still wonder why there are homeless people in the world. Because I'm better than you i can compete against you and i will win oh, it doesn't matter when you lose because no one cares, it doesn't matter that you have no hope in life because IM SUPERIOR and if i don't stay superior then then people wont respect me and when that happens there is no point in life.

  • No no no

    People are taught that if they beat someone they are then better than them and they have to beat them to know that they are good enough so they rely on other peoples failing for their own self praise. People should be able to know that they are good and what they have done is good and reflects their abilities, not relying on other people to do bad. Also, if you win once, it puts more pressure on people to win again and if they get a reputation for winning it can get stressful and that is unhealthy.

  • no to competition

    Competition is what can damage life. You can fight with friend and pass it to far. Than at a point in time you will live on it. Look for a way at every thing you do. At a point in my life track went from a loving get together of friend now a blood bath as soon as we get to it. That is why competition is bad

  • Competition is bad!!!

    Competition is bad because it puts pressure on the you n than u start to break down emotionally n that's bad so. It's even worse when u have a mean teacher the pushes u down n doesn't believe in u n in only one girl. I know this because I watch many shows that involve competing and the kids who are competing literally break down emotionally. It's just too much stress for a kid. It just is

  • It is BAD

    Competition teaches us that we are better than other people just because we beat them in a game.
    I have a very competitive brother and he gets very upset every time he loses. When we lose a big game, we think we are not good at anything anymore. Competition brings out the bad side in us. You don't want to rely on other people's failure for self praise.

  • Competition ultimately divides and cooperation unites

    I strongly believe that to be in competition with others and to always be one step above others is not healthy for the individual who is competitive nor the other person. I think it is very different when you are competitive only with yourself but generally competitiveness is not something that I would condone, especially when the sole purpose is to outdo another or to be better than someone else. I think what we are lacking today is empathy, and competition can show a lack of understanding and can be harmful to society as a whole.

  • Competition is outdated

    There seems to be this false concept that competition is responsible for all the innovations of mankind. But if you look with a more critical eye you will realise that most great masterpieces and engineering feats were built when there was peace and prosperity. Hardly the situation with the economy nowadays where humanity is in a perpetual dog eats dog mind-frame. With the exception of war machines you would be pressed hard to find a handful of examples of exemplary art, engineering or medical breakthroughs borne by competitiveness. So why this craze about competition and how it's supposedly good for you? True in our society being competitive is almost a given: you need to be competitive in order to survive or achieve anything in life. But what about the society as a whole? Is this good about the far larger numbers of people who are just not the best at their field, or their life circumstances were not that great and they couldn't live up to their potential? Even if a few benefit from this system and even if it is a system based on merit (that's up for debate in itself), does the gain of the few outweigh the wellbeing of so many?

  • Inequity is the root of all evil. Competition creates inequity.

    Inequity or more technically perceived inequity in the root of all evil. If all people had a mindset of balance and equality no matter what the material reality then no one would need to dominate another, take from another, put another below their foot, or be better then another. There is no reason to see yourself as less or more than anyone else. It is our primitive warmongering society that brainwashes us into fighting with eachother, acting out of ego, acting out of perceived limited resources, all under the big lie that it is good for survival and thus society. The truth is war is never good for society, conflict is never good for society. Working together as equals is always what has been good for society. Every tribe, village, and neighborhood flourish only when you have humble members who treat eachother as equals. Competition feeds the lie that you can be better than someone for superficial reasons. Competition winners feed the cultural mental disorder that somehow winners of irrelevant games are better than other people. Their status is unfairly raised to levels of admiration, devotion, and worship that slots be reserved for only the finest contributions to our society. Teachers, Doctors, scientists, philosophers, and other real life world changers should get the honor and accolades of the "winners". The truth about winning is that it is meaningless and empty. A true victory should come with producing something that benefits others not just the self. This doesn't mean all people should be forced into fake equality, stripped away of all things that make them special. The root of all evil is the perceived inequity not the actual inequity. Evil is not that a poor man sells a bagel to a rich man on his way to work. Evil is that rich man snubbing that poor man and looking down on him as if he has less value as a person. Evil is the poor man looking up to the rich man and giving him an unfair amount of envy, seeing himself as essentially less than. This perceived self worth being greater in those who are elitist, and bully others, take from others, is a root of evils like murder, racism, theft, genocide, even usury, and rape. The perceived self worth being lesser in those who are second class citizens, minorities (all races can be local contextual minorities), any second class gender, creates more envy, strife, conflict, and sets people up make self harming decisions, even criminals. The ego is what drives people to take from others, to dominate others. The ego is a selfish petty thing that is trying to balance an imbalanced self image. A deep seeded insecurity is the root of the ego that pushes itself to do all manner of evils. If the self image was balanced, healed, and did not suffer from this perceived inequity it would never have a reason to take from another, to feel less than, to compete.
