Hello fellow coders!

Today, let's discuss the practice of checking the common standings or friends' standings during contests. Personally, I often find myself doing so, yet at times, it can induce feelings of anxiety.

I invite you to share your perspectives on whether it's beneficial or detrimental, and the advantages and disadvantages associated with it.

Share your thoughts about whether it's helpful or not to look at the standings during contests and what's good and bad about it.Thank you...

It may offer motivation and insight, it can also lead to distraction and unnecessary pressure.

I personally feel that not seeing standings is better for me… For the past 5 contests I stopped seeing standings and unfriended everyone I only see standings after I have solved a set number of Qs. It has helped me a lot.

I think at all it is helpful but just looking at standing after solving a problem or every 20 minute.
