I'm more of an individual than anything. If I had to pick between being a leader or a follower I would definitely choose leader just because follower doesn't suit my personality at all.

Essentially I just like doing whatever I want.

I'm generally what they call a "Lone Wolf", but on the occasion that I am part of a team everbody tends to follow me. It's pretty weird to be honest, it's not even talked about most of the time, they all just look at me like "What to do boss?"
I guess I am then. :?

I like being a follower, for the most part. However, if there's something that I'm passionate about and no one else is stepping up to the plate (or are just doing a poor job of it), then I'll gladly take the reins and become a leader. I normally take the 'nice guy' approach to leadership: get more flies with honey than with vinegar and such, but I have been known to lay down the law when the situation requires it. :D

I'd say I am definitely a leader, and a very good one at that. Not to boast or anything, but it's what I do for a living... Not to dig into my job or anything, or even expose what it is, but I took the worst performing branch within a company and turned it into the highest performing store within the district it belongs to in just two months, and not a single staff change was made outside of putting me in charge.

I even had major executives calling and messaging me to congratulate me on my endeavors.

Outside of that, I've led multiple forums in the past (nothing as popular as this, but members in the upwards of 250,000+). I've also took on the leader role of any group projects I had in school.

Even when playing basketball (as a kid until now), I always assumed the Point Guard position (person who runs all the plays and outlines the offense to ensure points and whatnot), and when I played for raelz (not NBA) my coaches always put me as the Point.

I'd say I kind of grew up with a natural talent to lead.

Conquering others is strength, conquering yourself is true power.

I'm not a leader nor a follower. I would rather do everything on my own to be honest.

I don't usually lead, but when I do... I'd usually speak in the deepest voice I have and tell people to quiet down. There was one time a teacher asked me to watch her freshman class while she go and pick up something, I stood there staring at them and told them to shut up. Sometimes I'd lead people when they need to go somewhere and I'd usually be a few feet ahead just to see if I'm going the right way.

Make sense? Oh, what fun is there in making sense?

I'd make a wonderful leader. I'm the fun kind, the kind who doesn't get bogged down in the bureaucracy of it all. I'm not gonna bust you for not wearing the right shoes to work.

I had many many situations in my work I had to lead a group of people... All I can say... It's really hard, hard to deal with giving orders and to do work with them at the same time... I prefer being a follower.
