Someone who has experienced a series of easy victories may develop what is known as "victory disease."


Risk factors for victory disease:

(1) a series of easy victories

(2) grandiose beliefs about self

(3) contempt for opponents

(4) false confidence, due to a failure to appreciate improvements made by opponents or other changes that impact outcomes


A person suffering from victory disease may suffer defeat if the person becomes sloppy or lazy.
