Aaah, words and meanings.
Dinged, this really can be read in such a way that basically states that there IS a state of constant competition, and the "if" focuses on whether or not he likes it. Not "if he feels he's in a state of constant competition". I can see how interpretation of the above quote could differ wildly between readers.
