I'm a leader I was born on Jan 1st so they say we are leaders born on the 1st day of the 1st month. Also they say capricorns are leaders.
But I just am...always was when I was a kid, I liked to invent games and so on.
I can lead when need be, but I usually do my own thing and don't follow in some cases.
I am too reckless to be a leader, I tend to go first but people tend to spend their time laughing behind my back to really get on with the important stuff like following :p
Leadership was one of those things that I was never really taught how to do and I don't understand how others do it lol
I've tried my best to be neither. Kipling's "if" always stuck a chord in me, though I don't know why:
"If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!"
"Are you a leader or follower?"
I am both. I follow myself all the time. Of course I tend to go around in circles, but I’m fine with that.
Neither. Seems I can neither be led nor lead the way. I have an inbuilt do-my-own-thing ability. And I'm often lost, both physically and mentally. I suppose that's an annoying trait for others
I agree with Thooghun how ever I am reminded of the quote from Stan Laurel
“You can lead a horse to water but a pencil must be lead”
We should all be both.
There are times to follow, and there are times to lead.
Sadly, many are not good at either.
For where I am currently in my life I am a leader due to my expertise and interpersonal skills.
I tend to be a leader. In school it was because whenever we got put into a group everyone just stared at each other, wondering what to do and I'm a very impatient person. So I would have to take charge or we'd never get anything done. Now at work I've been a manager for 8 years and have been made to take leadership classes as part of the promotion responsibility.
I've always been a leader, but I can take a backseat when need be.
A “leader” is usually at the front of the column…A “follower”, being a stalker, is usually in jail.
I am a leader who likes to follow Plug twitter @woodsmenspost many hubbers chose not to follow me using twitter karma sooo. You never know about the possibility of re-tweet juice. Oh wait oh never mind

Some believe you are either born as a leader or as a follower - which are you, and are you self made or a natural?Personally, I would rather follow than lead, but I don't like to be led astray!!

I see the report button but it is more seeing a person with 0 hubs following large numbers of people that worries me. Obvious fake profile picture. These types worry me as being a possible plagiarist picking up articles...

Wouldn't it be great if we could de-fan a follower? If your asking, "why in the world would you want to do that?" Let me tell you. Recently I have been gaining quite a few followers which actually helped push...
