Other interesting results revealed that the majority of both gender groups equally fight for validation or to prove themselves as a better gamer and predominantly decided that competition is more “interesting” and “thrilling” than “intimidating” and tends not to quit when ahead and feel just as competitive playing against the same gender as they do versus a member of the opposite gender.

Question is which gender is more competitive or better? As per WorldWinner’s analysis, it’s a tie. This survey respondents (most of them) do agree that men and women are equally assertive and competitive in any casual competition.
