    "Are you a leader of a follower?

    I have lead groups in school

    I have concluded that the current state of the world is caused by the lack of leaders, not from too many as I once thought. It all depends on what you consider a leader. Leaders should be able to handle a variety of situations alone, to know when to step down from command and...

    Can't help it. I'm pulled towards it.
