Leaders have to be daring and believe in themselves. Deep faith in yourself eliminates fear of failure.

Because lames rule this message board. Personally I never seen Looten Plunder insult anybody. He provided a sort of intellectual wit that was not in the least snobby, which is rare. Apparantly though he was a racist and instigated suicide by posting pictures of a noose to certain people.

That seems no worse than what I've done with posting pictures or a lot of other people for that matter. I wonder what was the real reason for his banning.

I think the suicide thing was hot on the heels of the bodybuilding misc./justintv suicide, and Steve was not in the mood for any shenanigans.

A Sense of Humor

I will own up to not being the most humble person. Self-aggrandizing is something that comes natural to me. I have oftentimes been accused of lacking integrity. A charge that I always dispute. As a poster, businessman, and a performer I always let my opponents know that I would do whatever it takes to come out on top. What is perceived as unscrupulousness by some is really an evolved form of integrity. I cut corners because I am relied on by a lot of people to get results, and it is my responsibility to not fail my family, partners, or underlings.

Which of these qualities would you say you possess, and what others are you trying to develop?

Whatever makes you feel better man. You're like, people say I lack integrity. But I disagree, even though I'll do anything.

Integrity is exactly that, not cutting corners to get the job done. Making up new definitions for integrity, lacks integrity.

the first one is a ruthless, cold blooded, Machiavellian, psycopath, fear-wielding, freak who's a coward deep inside. This attitude wins you insecure people.

The second is when you put reason and mission ahead of yourself and devote yourself to an abstract idea. it is the epitome of courage and human evolution. this will win you the hearts of good men.

dictators vs. servant-leaders.

stalin, hitler, gaddhafi, hussein, kim jong il, chavez, suparmurat, mugabe, amin, pol pot vs. ataturk, frederick the great, christ, jfk, confucius, siddhartha

dictators are also linked with more promiscuity, more alcohol substance whereas leaders are simpler men who are easier to be controlled



machiavelli talked about the ideal prince being someone who is frugal during times of war and generous during times of prosperity.. and that it is worse to be a generous loser than a cheap bastard who earns and gets sh1T DONE.

nelson mandela was known to make people cry when they first looked into his eyes. they say that he had something inside of him that would really touch someone's heart.. a certain God-like compassion

cult leaders in general have a healthy balance of narcissism and a loving demeanor towards others which result in very very devoted followers. they have a certain paternal quality

women leaders and ceo's are excelling primarily due to their propensity to like and really want to get to know other people and their empathy helps in fulfilling a few human needs
- the need to be needed
- the need to be heard
- the need to be appreciated

back in 3rd world countries and factories and industries, it took a very stoic masculine otulookk on life to survive.. you're seen as a stat and a piece of the puzzle and are only appreciated for what you BRing to the table than what you are... slowly its shifting to the right

when you are too compassionate people see u as weak/low value, when you are too sociopathic people see you as cold/heartless and they resent you and will bond together to get rid of your azz. this is the mistake the republicans (1 are doing with their tactics.



this is an underrated and important topic.
Read later.

Anyway, I enjoyed this thread and it's sad to see that this guy isn't around anymore.

I believe the world needs leaders, not followers, and I believe ISH has many good men who have that capacity.
