People keep saying that competitive programming increases your problem solving and logical thinking skills, so I wanted to know specifically an example of a problem or a project where a competitive programmer would do better as compared to a person who hasn't done any competitive programming in his/her life.

Just my opinions,maybe many of them are not right.....................

1.A competitive programmer can handle the pressue(like they solve problem in contest under limited time)....

2.He/she can generate idea faster(as in contest we have only 2/2.5 hour to solve some problems by doing this continuously anyone can geneate idea faster)........

3.Efficient code and better project(as in cp people have to make their code much efficient and optimized,when they are doing a project by nature they would write the efficient solution like they does in contests)...........

4.Faster dubugging(people have to debug their code in limited time in contests,so while doing project they can easilt dubug faster than others).......

I am not saying then non competitive programmers are not good at these....but if we analyze a huge number of competitive and non-competitive programmers ,we can easily observe the difference.....(even i am start learning cp for gaining these)...
