If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done.
This statement is completely ignorant. Any person attempting to fail should have their head examined.
However, if their attempt is to make sure that they fail, but still end up succeeding, then apparently they didn't quite understand all the factors involved.
What if you are playing your partner at a game of pool and are winning so much that you are humiliating them. You would attampt to fail and miss so that they have a chance of coming back, wouldn't you?
Been there, done that. In this example it's competition. Humility is good, not bad and the fact that you are implying it's negative, shows that you are only seeing one side of the equation.
Nope. I do my best and if the person refuses to do the same or cannot handle my best, then that is their problem.
What if it's your child? You would still do your best and beat them at every game they play?
First off, I don't have children. Secondly, I have two nieces which I do play games with and NO I don't take it easy on them. Taking it easy on them, provides them a false sense of accomplishment and it does more damage.
Every person, including children need to learn and handle disappointment. If they do not, then they will not learn from the experience.
I agree to a certain extent, but crushing them at a game when you're just having fun seems a little harsh.
Have you ever found a loser of a game, still consider it fun?
If so, then you have found a rarely unique individual, such as myself. I have no fear of failing at any game I play, because I learned earlier in my life that I am not going to win everything I play, which means there is something for me to learn from the experience.
I personally, haven't found too many people who have no problem with losing a game, but then again, I haven't found too many people to be consciously active enough to understand their own life either.
But why would you waist you time doing that.
I do not understand the question really it makes no sense.
Try the unknown...
It has already been asked, but I must ask again,
Why would you try to fail?
If you try to "FAIL" and you "SUCCEED" at failing, you have succeeded in being a failure. How's that for simple logic?
It depends on the viewpoint.
From your point of view it's succeed. Because you aimed to do what you set out to do.
From someone watching you, it's a fail. Because they never knew you were trying to fail.
It is a trick question to see if you have succeeded at failing or become successful. I don't believe many people deliberately try to fail unless to hitch up with some hot chick in summer school for those who failed.
There are many examples of people considering their deliberate failures to be a success.
Failing tests to avoid being drafted into the armed services.
Sporting failures because the sportsmen have bet on themelves to lose.
People at work and in the home often deliberately fail at a task so they won't be asked to do it again.
Just 3 examples of considering failure to be a success. Cagsil's answer didn't seem to consider these examples.

I have been reflecting recently on the direction that this site has taken, in particular the growing number of people who sign up and then ask 7 days or 14 days later when they will begin making money. Or they ask whether their CTR across 10 page views per day is good, or seek a magic formula for...
