Relation to Our Lifes

What leadership conditions would you/ do you feel the most comfortable under?

I feel the most comfortable under a Democratic and Legitimate/Referent leader Like Andrew Jackson or Martin Luther King Jr. These leadership conditions would make me comfortable/ at ease because I know that there would be no way that he/she couldn't abuse his power and disregard my views on an issue. If the leader used these powers/stiles then I would know that my views on an issue would matter and that he couldn't abuse his powers.

Which leader are you the most alike? Why?

I am most alike martin Luther King Jr. Because I am a well respected member of my grade and I stride to include other people in activities I preform, things I do, and the decisions I make in my life. I also stride to help other people.
