The competition starts very early, sometimes from the school benches, and is revealed everywhere in our society. We are made for each other is interested in this spirit, which can destroy, or on the contrary bring together. “Competition develops from an early age, it can be cultural, but it all depends on how it is told“, estimates Jean-François Marmion, psychologist.

Indeed, if some parents instill in their children a devastating competitive spirit, even asking to crush classmates if necessary to assert themselves and “be the best”, a cohesive competitive spirit seems much more positive. “You can be a competitor, and want to succeed, without overshadowing others”, explains Pascale Senk, journalist.

And in the professional world, it is sometimes this spirit of competition that is a justice of the peace, between men and women. On March 8, International Women’s Rights Day, what about their professional situation? “When a woman says she wants a career in a man’s world, we wonder what she is doing here ; these mentalities must change, “testifies Marlène Schiappa, Minister Delegate to the Minister of the Interior, in charge of Citizenship, and guest of the program.

And if the spirit of competition remains very cultural, education, it remains essential in the acquisition ofa good state of mind, which consists in respecting the other, without wanting to overwhelm them. “Among women, we much prefer the bond and the inspiration, remarks Pascale Senk. There is still a lot of work to mix the passion and this niac”.
