    I like to have a leadership role when there is something that needs to get done. Perhaps because I know I can get things done, and don't trust anybody else to catch all the important details.

    It's worthwhile to consider that there are different personal styles of leadership, some styles are better for certain situations.

    For instance, I would not fit the role of book club leader, or support/berievement group leader. I tend to fit a hierarchical model of leadership rather than a collaborative model. I like taking the lead in situations where something must get done--work/objective leadership over recreational leadership, which you might see in the captain of a sports team.

    I always wish to have a leadership position as long as I have the knowledge base and experience required to make sound decisions. I don't overtly pursue leadership though, I prefer to be more circumspect about it because I think angling for a leadership position is the best way to start off on the wrong foot with those you are leading.

    I don't go for the leadership role, if I don't give a rat's ass about the people I'm working with, or my team mates are incompetent. In those cases I won't even be in the team. Else, the leadership role is mine.

    Maybe. I don't know too many TJs, but it seems in theory they'd make great managers. I know two ENTJs: one is fantastic at delegating yet the other's terrible. Then again, I think the former frightens her team into doing their job .

    As for leading - Fe!

    Precisely why ISTJs are so drawn to the US military...and so successful in it...

    What about delegating tasks to other people, and making decisions about priorities and plans of action involving those other people? "Management" in that sense of the word.

    I think I might do well with these, because I think I do them well for my own tasks, and I also can see where things could be handled more efficiently. But there are always those who will disagree when carrying out these plans, and who is to say they are wrong? There is the element of listening for advice and possibility for improvement, and the judgment of what to ignore--and then the way to communicate and navigate those properly to the people you're working with.

    "Leadership by example" is the phrase I best relate to so far.

    For those wondering, I am not seeking or being asked for a leadership or management role, but I notice that when such roles are required, I steer away from them, knowing I'm not prepared. Then again, I haven't really tried it... The question in my mind is, "Am I avoiding something that I could in fact handle?"
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    Yes, I strive to be in a leadership position. I believe it should be something that's earned. On the other hand, it's often there for the taking, you just need to reach out for it. Which I do. So even though I'm fairly young, I often find myself leading people who are older than me because I both earn it and reach out for it.

    If someone else is leading I'm comfortable with that as long as I agree with their vision. If not I'll probably find myself somewhere else. As far as delegating goes, I'm fairly comfortable with it on paper. But I'm a workhorse and don't believe in getting people to do things when I can do them myself. So I need to work on this area. But I'm great at setting up systems and getting others to work effectively in the system/devising the system to suit the skills of the workers.

    Yeah...if I like the task and I'm competent at it, why not? I have no problem with responsibility, I love interacting with people. I don't strive for it, though, more often than not it seems like I'm the only one that wants to take them.

    Right now, though, I only have in mind 3 possible tasks where I could have a leadership role, I'm not good enough at the others to be effective as a coordinator. (I like "coordinator" more than leader, because it implied an horizontal organization rather than a hierarchical one)
