A recurrent, distraught feeling where a person has consistent visions of a particular unsuccessful episode. It is like a friend who keeps reminding you in a mall that you forgot to wear trousers. Loser mode is triggered by any recent temporary failures or references to that particular episode. It may be composed of a number of recollections of such similar events which leads to self loathing as the person looks at himself as evolutionarily unfit and deems himself a social loser. In certain cases, a competitively lesser mortal tends to surpass the subject in the event in his performance, thereby making the subject lose complete sanity. In such cases, loser mode advances to epic-fail loser mode which is the real world equivalent of a limbo dream state.
Hard Working Person: “Crap!This paper contains questions similar to those in my previous screwed up paper. Loser mode activated.”
Deserving Person: “Crap!I didn’t get the job because I wasn’t the preferred sex needed to ‘maintain gender equality’ in the organization. Loser mode activated.”
Undeserving idiot: “I got the job by having correct guesses in the test paper, and having sexual bias in the interviews. Undeserving winner mode activated.”
