Are you a sore loser? Well - Are you?
Are you a sore winner?

Or are you neither, or are you 'sorta a bit, sorta not' - or Both?

What are you?

I'm a neither.

Whether I win or not, I'm more concerned with trying to have fun with whatever I'm doing. I'm a human being and I will be competitive when I'm playing a video game, shooting pool, playing poker, etc. but I also never take a loss with a problem.

I'm gracious in winning and just fine with losing; that's just how I am, I guess.


I don't understand the question in the first place.
Being a loser/winner has a lot of meanings.

Losing is normal, winning is great! I'm happy about the latter, I can't do anything about the first.

Unity said it nicely- gracious with winning and fine with losing. You can't win all the time and you won't lose all the time. I try to make sure I am happy at the moment, but I am sure I wouldn't define myself as a sore loser.

I wouldn't say I'm a sore loser, but I hate losing. It's one of the worst feelings out there in my opinion. I'll shake hands afterwards, but I hate doing it because, I'm shaking hands with the players that beat my team. It just bugs the crap out of me to do so.

Sore winner? No, not at all. I never really celebrate or show up my opponent. I say good game and shake hands and that's about it. If the opponent was talking shit then I might have a little something extra to say.

Sore loser? I can be. If I feel like I was outplayed by someone better, then I'm very gracious in defeat and will congratulate the winner. If I'm beaten by luck, especially by an inferior opponent, then I get pissed and sometimes I'm not good at keeping it to myself.


No, I'm not a sore loser. In fact I grew up enjoying losing at most things, especially sports. I hate all the attention that usually comes with winning things.

It feels much better to win. I totally agree with Unity, except when I'm playing at casinos. In that case there are serious consequences from my defeats: me losing (lots of) money...

I'm not a sore loser by any means. If I was I don't think I'd ever play Poker with the GF folk. If I lose then I'll take it like a (wo)man.

As for being a sore winner, I don't class myself as one of those either. Being branded a 'winner' is good enough for me. No need to rub it in someone's FACE.

I'm neither a sore winner or loser. I don't like competition (unless it's silly/fun/meaningless) so that kind of rules out any sore losery/winnery-ness, as you so eloquently put it. :lol:

I'm also not sure which is worse. Probably the winner one, and especially when it's not YOU that won, it's just a team you support.
