Aloha Friday #23

Photobucket

It's Aloha Friday again over at An Island Life! Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog! After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

My question for this week is:

Do you consider yourself a leader or a follower?

I definitely think that I'm more of a leader. I take into account how other people will react or feel, but I'm still very much a leader. When I was little I was always given so much self confidence by my parents and family and I really think that is what made me the person I am today. I think that if you continue to tell someone they can do anything-they're going to believe it and not be afraid to take charge sometimes. I always have an opinion and am not scared to share it. Pin It!

Definitely A leader. I am Strong will and enjoy teaching. Love being the BOSS!:-)

Sarah said...

A leader if one if needed - I need to be organized and am happy to do it. BUT I don't mind not being in charge.

Andrea McMann said...

Too funny! I was just recently caught off-guard with this question in a job interview. I hesitated, then off the top of my head, said both. I can be a leader if I need to be, but if someone else is in charge, I have no problem following their lead. It sounded cheesy at first, but now that I've had more time to think, I like my answer, and it feels true.

Sallie said...

I'd rather follow much of the time. I love to do what needs to be done - but generally need for someone to TELL me what that is.

Pami said...

I am a leader give me something and I will run with it....

Diane said...

hhmm... i can easily fit into both roles, depending on the situation. i don't think it's always good to be so rigid that you can't follow sometimes.

blueviolet said...

I'm totally a follower. I hate leading.

Kelly said...

It depends on the situation. But I would say 8 times out of 10 I am the leader..
Have a great day!

Kim said...

I am most definitely a leader...but I should learn to follow more often. lol

My Aloha Friday

Angie said...

I am a follower. I tend to not able to make decisions on my own. I always rely on others for their reassurance.

Mighty M said...

A leader - I am not much for following!

A.V.A said...

I'm more of a leader than a follower, but I do follow sometimes.

Faith - That's Just Freaking Lovely said...

I'm a follower, but in a good way. I can be very shy so I don't think I'd make a good leader anyways!

kel said...

Follower baby... all the way... boo me!

MOMMY-MOMO said...

hmmm good question. I think it depends on the situation. I like to think i'm a follower, but then I can be bossy and want my way! hehe

Jaime said...

depends on the situation... i easily fill both roles at various times throughout my day

Amy A.K.A. "The Mrs." said...

It definitely depends on where I am and what's going on. I am a leader when I need to be but try to back off a bit when someone else needs to be in that role. :)

Abby said...

It depends what is going on. I think more of a follower, but as I get older I think I am becoming more of a leader.

sues2u2 said...

It honestly depends on the situation. I'm both but it really just depends.

*Just Jen* said...

I am too bossy to be a follower! LOL So definitely a leader!

Pegsy said...

I definitely like to follow - being in charge is stressful for me! But...I am bossy and opinionated, so if I feel my "leader" is not doing a good job, I will step in and try to help lead.

Jinxy said...

For the most part I'm super shy and like to stay in the back ground. However when put in a situation where someone has to lead and no one is stepping up I usually will.

Amy and her little family said...

It depends who I’m with. When my mom she had always been the leader, but for the most part I am. That never stopped me from following sometimes! I get the best ideas from other people and just have to follow it! I guess I’m a little of both.

Brandi said...

I think I do both...it just depends on who I am with. I am def. very much opinionated and not scared to speak my mind, although sometimes I don't always think about how others will react.

TheAngelForever said...

Definitely a leader, probably why I went into teaching.

NateAndJakesMom said...

Can I choose both?
I do tend toward the leader side but as I get older, I realize sometimes it is just nice to sit back and follow.

JamericanSpice said...

While you got boosted in love as a child. I got beaten down and negativized (so not a word)...that most times I'm content to be a follower...unless the path is not what I agree with. (Does all that blubber make sense?)

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Amen sister! Say it how it is :)

Cat@3KidsandUs said...

I think I'm somewhere in the middle. Sometimes I prefer to lead, others I'd rather follow, and then occasionally I just go the complete opposite.

Kim said...

I think Im kinda somewhere in between.

IE Mommy Blogger said...

Definitely a leader. But, I can be a fantastic follower if someone is worth following. Thanks for sharing. Swing by my site, The IE Mommy, to view my question and if you already have....Thanks :)

Brea's Mommy said...

Totally depends on the situation I could qualify for both!

MoodyMommy said...

I am almost always a leader

Becca said...

I am both depending on the situation. If I am comfortable and/or know the people, I definitely lead. But when I am unsure or with strangers, I tend to follow.

Pamela Kramer said...

I play the role that I need to play at the time I need it. As a Mom I'm a leader as a daughter I'm a follower and as a wife I go back and forth.

Sarah said...

I can take charge when needed, but I have no problem following another capable leader.

Megan said...

I've actually thought about this off and on and I'm really not sure. I'm somewhere in the middle I think. It depends on the situation.

I see Sarah's response right now and I think that's exactly how I feel.

Betsy said...

I am definatly more of a leader.... like someone else said, too bossy to be a follower. :)t
