    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. smile

    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!"

    I am both. I follow myself all the time. Of course I tend to go around in circles, but I’m fine with

    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 smile

    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.

    Do you mean a "good" leader, or just a leader?

    A “leader” is usually at the front of the column…A “follower”, being a stalker, is usually in jail.
