Poll Who would you rather have be your leader? (19 votes)

Arrogant tough guy/lady who is competent at his/her job 95%
Friendly empathetic guy/lady who is incompetent at his/her job 5%

The arrogant one has all sorts of nasty labels attached to them in their personal life or attitudes

The friendly one is virtually a complete saint in all regards of their personal life or attitudes

There is no third option. It's one or the other

Competency is more important in the case of a leader.

I'd have the fate of the nation over whatever qualms I had with someone if that someone was the best suited individual to run it. In the world we live in, as sad as it is, not a lot of people feel the same.

First option. Being friendly and empathetic is great, but competence is more important for a leader.

I would quote Lunacyde here but I think he's getting sick of me tagging him. :p

Depends on the situation. First option more often than not I guess

Shucks. But First.

By the way, neither Donald Trump nor Jacinda Ardern fit this dichotomy, if that's what you were thinking. Trumpet is arrogant and incompetent; Jacinda is compassionate and competent. They couldn't be more disparate.

Depends

I can take advantage of the incompetent one if it's the kind of situation where I value that option

If there is no room for my own agenda like in a war/military unit then I am happy to support a wanker who knows what he is doing.

@dernman: neither description matches Trump; he's both arrogant AND incompetent.

The competent one. He or she will be better at serving the common good.

The second person can do charity work at a children's burn ward.

The friendly person's empathetic tunnel vision could come across as cruelty to everyone else who is trying to provide and protect their loved ones.

First would be a better leader.

Second would probably be a better friend.
