    Default NTs: Do you think you'd make a good leader?

    I'm curious as to which NTs consider themselves leader types. This poll is asking if you think you have the capabilities to lead well, not if you WANT to lead.

    I think that I have the potential to lead, but only if I keep myself detached from my coworkers (or whichever group it is that I'm leading). I have a problem coming down hard on people who are my close friends.

    Please vote and share your thoughts!
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    I think I'm an effective and fun leader.

    That would depend a lot on how expert I am on the matter and how I like the task I have to lead to completion. If I'm quite an expert (better than all the other people present) and I like it, I can be a good leader, I think. However, I really dislike to ask for stuff or reprimand the people I am leading; so I'm better at leading a task such as, say, an exploration of a new road rather than a work-project, since in the latter I tend to just try to do as much work as I can by myself. I also have a lot of trouble correcting people and/or generally telling them how they should do things, which is something that leaders should generally be good at.

    i'm intp and i would qualify myself as a leader though i sure have my weak spots (often lack coaching skills, sometimes not sufficiently inspiring).

    I often rise to positions of leadership.. it's a compulsion for me. If I don't know much about the subject at hand, I'll recruit people who do. It's all a matter of organizing and using talent and resources effectively.

    I could if I needed to. I'd prefer to avoid that.

    Nope. As an INTP I will be better suited on the background, supplying critical feedback and ideas.

    I could only be an effective leader in a position of total authority. To me, that means I'm probably not a good leader.

    I'm very good at it, laid back and fun. I don't like to be in that position, although I am often thrust in by default.
