Anonyme a dit: I find I am secretively competitive, in that I will work on my own time to become very very good at something, and then jump into competition with at least a little bit of know-how. Since some things can't be self taught, I will still have to work to be the best, but I like that look people give you when they didn't expect you to just come in out of nowhere and rock the boat. Makes things fun.
