  1. Depends on the situation. That goes for work, recreation, or even in my marriage. I think being solely one or the other gets old pretty quick, to myself and those I’m associated with.

  2. I would say I’m a quiet leader. I encourage every one I meet (grocery clerks included!) And always try to be a good role model for my clients & students. That said, I have very little interest in being a “leader” in a formal sense. I’d rather practice my trade (psychologist / professor) than be a leader of trades.

  3. I’m definitely not a follower. I do the things I think are important no matter what the “popular folk” think. I can be a leader when I choose, I just don’t always like to take on that responsibility. Sometimes I just choose to march to the beat of my own drum and leave everyone else to their drumbeat.

  4. Great question. I work for a big four consulting firm. Everyone who works there is type A. When I mentor young consultants, I tell them that, based on the situation, they may need to drop back and be a type B. If a project has all leaders, it is doomed to failure. You have to know when to be a leader and when to drop back and be a follower and contributor.

    1. I am accustomed to being a leader, but can put my needs on the back burner in order to follow. BUT (lol), if I am going to be a follower I demand that the person leading be a strong leader.

  5. I would say I am a leader -not because I lead anyone, anywhere, but because I do not follow. I’m more of a rebel who is unleadable.

      1. I’m rebellious. As an abused child -I refuse to take direction easily unless it is a choice. Simple but truthful. Thanks for asking.
