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 so is there a way that we can block them to play on the safe side?

What has your experience been. Did you notice that the more people you followed, the more people followed you? Did you ever start following people just because you wanted more followers? I have been pretty selective in the people that I follow and I am totally happy with all of the awesome Hubbers...

When you are notified of a new follower, how do you respond?Do you go to their page and check them out? Do you read any of their hubs? Do you mke sure that they are legitimate? I have a lot of followers who seem to be advertisers. Hubpages are really good about weeding them out but I do see many...
