It's usually easier to follow than it is to lead. Let someone else do all the mental heavy lifting and you become their extension. They screw up, their fault.

In certain areas, it is to your benefit that you be submissive. If you're going to medical school or learning a skill from an expert or something, it's a waste of time and a show of your immaturity if you don't shut up and listen to what your instructor has to say. It is rather pointless to contest them. They are the experts, not you. Which is the whole reason you are there. You should swallow your pride and learn as much as you can so you can rise to their level or exceed them someday.

In the workplace, it varies. If you're at the bottom, your superiors have much more power than you. If they tell you to do something and they have a decent reason for it, you should go and do it. They hired you to make their own lives easier and they have no reason to keep you if you turn into a liability or a weak link. It's a package deal if you want a job.You can order people around after you climb the ladder. Working up from the bottom is a necessity for many things in life.

Basically, you have to know when it is appropriate to be dominant or submissive.

Well, anime ukes typically are totally submissive. The yaoi fans tend to like to have their yaoi couples be consisting of one who is strictly a top and one who is totally a bottom.

mmmmm for me it would vary from person to person i mean there are some things i would not do for one person but i would do it for someone else

Generally, I'm pretty willful and hardheaded. I don't listen and would often do things only when I feel like or if it's absolutely necessary. Even then, it's pretty difficult to get me to do something I find disagreeable. Whenever I start feeling like someone is trying to take too much control over me (or when I feel like things are not under my control), I run. Lol... I need my space and my freedom.

I guess I'm not very submissive. I'll comply with what I'm being told to do only if I want to do it, but will often reject others' requests. That's not to say that I hate being told what to do or anything like that, but I have no problem simply saying no.

My likelihood of submitting to another depends on how much I value the association and whether or not I see significantly dangerous outcomes of their actions. The last time I was completely submissive to another, it was an exercise in futility, so I won't do that again. Doesn't help that at this point in my life, the term trust might as well be elvish.

I work in a field where I'm expected to be dominant. When I'm off, I prefer to be submissive. Always.

Only submissive when I'm learning or I know that retreat is the best option. Other than that, stubborn as a mule. And I take lead.

I respond to orders as if they're requests. Usually, this isn't an issue, as I'm an easygoing guy and don't mind helping people out. If it's not something I mind doing, I'll generally respond with a cheerful "Sure." or "Arright." If, on the other hand, I don't want to do it, I'll politely decline and tell the other person why. They're free to try and convince me further. The end result is that I generally stop getting ordered around. I don't acknowledge people as anything other than my equal, and I do it in a respectful, nonconfrontational way, so people ease into treating me as such, regardless of how they viewed the relationship at first.

I don't like being submissive. I also don't like being dominant. I resist attempts to put me into one of those roles by choosing not to register them. Regardless of whether someone treats me as an equal, a superior, or a subordinate, I respond in a casual, friendly manner, and treat everything as open for discussion until everyone is satisfied. If I can be their friend, great. If I can't, then they have nothing to offer me, and I'll leave them to their own devices.

Not my kind of thing. Either at work or in the bedroom, I always command.

I'm not into BDSM. Too kinky for my tastes.

But if I had to choose... Sadism all the way.
