I have mostly good ideas for leading, but then again, no one but my best friend would listen to me. So my BFF follows me, why i follow everyone else. :meow:

I prefer following to leading. Though I've been told I'm a really good leader. heck, I even got a chance to go to DC for some sort of leadership training thing. Never went, but the offer was flattering none the less.

Most of the time it is much easier for me to follow, as that way I don't rustle other peoples jimmies who are seeking a promotion/big part in project/etc.

However, if people come to me for guidance and leadership, sure, I'll even teach them how to fish in the process.

I follow, but I give suggestions and ideas that make sense, so I often end up being either the leader or working with the current leader. However, I'm not opposed to being a lone wolf when everyone else is being stupid.

Same here. Most of the people in my class are idiots, so I end up being a lone wolf while everyone else sticks together like a pack of grey wolves.

I'm almost always the leader, but I REALLY prefer to follow.

Most people are usually so bad of a leader that I can't stand NOT relieving them of their duties, Lol.

I WANT to lead... but then someone who is too much of an idiot to argue with comes along, and i just sit back... and I really hate doing that, but I guess thats just who I am.

In most situations I follow. Unless it comes down to blindly running into a battlefield, then you can count me in as the first in line.

I walk with people. I don't fallow because when I did I realized I the stories I heard were always one sided. I don't lead because no will fallow me, they don't like the side of stories or they don't think I can lead. But they'll never know will they.

It honestly depends on who I'm with. If I'm with a strong leader, I let them lead, but if nobody else does it, I will.

Well, to be honest, I prefer to be on my own, neither leading nor following.

But, if I have to choose, my answer is "Lead". :)

I'm a follower, I don't lead because I hate making decisions. So the leader can make the gamble instead, and any ways I like to support more than being supported.

I like to lead, and I usually end up in the lead for no apparent reason (probably cos I'm the only one who cares about finishing whatever the group's doing!) but yeah, I'm sh*t at leading anyway.

I usually follow. Unless it's something involving schooling, in which case I always lead because my friends and I both know that I'm the most intelligent. And, no, I'm not kidding! :)

Following is less work, but there's nothing like having people actually listen to what you tell them to do. Even if it is just in a video game.

I feel like I would be a good leader. I'm fairly reasonable and I could probably get a group of people to cooperate if I tried. But usually I'm too nervous or I don't think people will care about what I have to say, and I also have trouble making tough decisions on the spot. I doubt myself too much, therefore I'm a follower.

Even of there is no group leader, I'm often nominated as one or I just naturally take the position and no one accuses. They look to me for help often as well..

I really don't like being a follower. I always want and need to be lead, but I'm not afraid to ask for help.

I prefer to follow. Because when someone screws up, or gets hurt or even killed everyone always looks at the leader!

But I'm also the kind of guy that does it solo whenever possible.
