Underdogs vs Favorites
One example from http://www.mcdougallinsurance.com/blog/index.php/2014/08/the-7-effective-characteristics-for-the-winning-underdog/ is that underdogs usually work in a team with other people. However, favorites usually work alone and are more independent. Also underdogs have grit, which is courage and resolve. Likewise favorites strive towards goals. Having qualities like those will help them achieve a lot in life. Some favorites tend to act empathetic and act like they care which differs from underdogs because they are usually very empathetic and mean it. Both underdogs and favorites tend to be confident in what they do. Although, the favorites confidence is shared by others while the underdog only has their own confidence. The underdog can have more self confidence because they're not being encouraged as much as the favorite. If they don't have self confidence they won't make it far because they'd constantly be doubting themselves. There are many similarities and differences of being an underdog and a favorite but they both achieve in many ways.
