    Are you a "LEADER" or a "FOLLOWER"?

    We have people around us who are born leaders, while we have others who prefer to trod the path of others. What are you? A leader or a follower? or are you a little of both?

    I don't tend to follow well, unless I deeply respect the person... which is very rare.

    A leader for sure. Although I do believe a good quality in a leader is the ability to delegate and to hear suggestions. I find that when people feel they are part of a team they invest more energy.

    You cannot lead if you dont know how to follow. First be a good follower then probably one day you might become a good leader.. To answer your question, I am none at this moment.. Couldnt ind a good leader to follow...Looks like I may need to create my own path..

    Neither.  I detest leading and following.  I go my own way. REVISING MY ANSWER: However, in a work/business setting, I'm OK with being a follower.  But regarding social situations or politics, causes, etc then I really dislike leading or following & that's when I go my own way. The only person I follow is Jesus.

    I don't agree that there is such a thing as a born leader, leaders are socially constructed. I think the difference between leaders and followers is minimal as the two work hand in hand. After all can't leaders be followers at the same time?

    i am usually a leader but i will take ideas from others. i have always been the type of person that others tend to listen to when something is going on but at the same time i have no problem letting someone lead if it is for something i have no experience in. i own my own company and my employees trust my opinion and my leadership almost always which i'm proud of.

    I am a leader, however I am always open to new ideas and my followers opinions on things. If I am not a leader then I go my own way, I do NOT follow anyone unless I absolutely trust them and I have trust issues.
