I'm sure I'm not alone in this!

I get much more pleasure from playing through games I cleverly won - especially against higher rated opponents - than from playing through games I lost.

Whereas, to improve my chess, I should obviously be doing the opposite: playing through games where I was beaten by a superior opponent, or where I blundered and lost, when I need not have!
