Individual Competition

by Ron Kurtus (27 April 2013)

Probably the most common type of competition is when individuals compete against each other. Individual competition may be classified as performance, head-to-head, or predatory competitions.

Questions you may have include:

This lesson will answer those questions.



Performance competitions

In a performance competition, you try to do your best in order to win over your competitors. You do nothing to hinder the performance of the other person. Examples include:

Head-to-head competitions

In a head-to-head individual competition, you not only try to do your best but you also work to prevent your opponent from succeeding. Examples include:

Predatory competitions

An individual in a predatory competition can attack an unsuspecting person as a way to win a reward. A good example is when a bully attacks a weaker person.

If the opponent is able to fight back, it may become a head-to-head contest.

Summary

When individuals compete against each other, the competition may be classified as performance, head-to-head, or predatory competitions.
