I think it depends on who is competing, what is the competition about and what happens to the winners and "loosers".We need healthy competition .Without competition there is little incensitve for certain people to perform well or even try. Competition also motives people and leads to great ideas allowing teams to become more cohesive.

Definitely. If there was no competition in the world everyone would be a lazy bum.

Yes. It builds character and a "esprit de corps", also good sportsmanship and ability to handle disappointment .

Stress vs Destress or Competition vs Complacency. The beauty/appreciation of both is in the "Eye"/Mindset of the Beholder.

Yes, I love competition. But you don't want to be overly competitive, such as with playing a board game, or else it can suck the fun right out of it.

Yes, it inspires us to try harder and to do things better, otherwise we would not bother to make the effort.
