Leadership Types Poll
« on: May 21, 2007, 11:18:38 AM »
Thought this would be interesting.  I think one of Lost's main themes is leadership.  Whose ideas are good?  Who communicates them well?  Who helps the weak links?  Who encourages member growth?  Who solves problems effectively?  Who gets what they and their party wants?  Who's a success?

So...if you were on the island and needed to lead, which character would you be more like?

i've actually taken quite a few leadership tests/evaluations.  none of these characters fit me.  i am a behind the scenes kind of leader.  think of the vice president.  just because he isn't president doesn't mean he's not a leader, quite the contrary.  i'm a leader, but i don't want to be in the limelight.

Yes, but what motivates you -- your skill, relationships, principles?  Suggest another character and I'll add it to the options.

i'm probably a cross between sayid and ben.  i'm skill driven, but authoritarian of sorts.  i just don't want to be THE authoritarian but AN authoritarian.  (if that makes any sense).

You should vote for Sayid.

Would that be voter fraud if I told you what to vote? ::)

For a minute I thought this said Lesbian Poll.  I was a wee bit disapointed when I clicked on it :P


;)
I guess we'll just have to adjust

Yikes!

You see the word lesbian when you read leadership?

Maybe you should be on the word association thread ;).

Great idea, laklost! I'm the friendly type of leader. I help, rather than force.
