You're listening to Dialogue Frog's conversations for English listening practice. Would you say that you're a competitive person?
No, I don't think so.
How 'bout you?
I am kind of competitive sometimes.
Yeah. But you're in the music industry. You don't-, don't you feel competitive with other musicians?
No. I think that's why I don't really watch, like America's Got Talent or anything. It's just so, it makes it competitive, but I don't-
Oh, the music competition TV shows.
Yeah, but I don't naturally feel that way.
So, I guess that kind of gets into jealousy, right? So, i-if there's another musician who maybe can do guitar better than you, does it inspire you to practice guitar more?
No, I just think they got their thing. I got my thing.
Yeah. I do get competitive, especially when I'm playing board games.
Uh, I really do.
I've always been that way. I'm kind of a perfectionist. So, if I can at least do something well to the point that I'm satisfied-
-then I'm all right. But, when it comes to board games, especially board games where there's only one winner.
I do get competitive.
What's your most competitive board game?
Probably Catan, but also Monopoly.
Also chess. All of the board games. All of them. But I don't play sports, so I'm never really competitive with like sports or physical activity like that.
I guess the Olympics happened recently. Did you watch any of those competitions?
I didn't really.
Yeah. I watched a few.
