25. Leaders have taste. 

Yeah I’m not so sure about this one. Sure leaders have taste so do many other individuals. I just do not believe this is a defining characteristic of a leader. Perhaps from a follower point of view it could be said that they do but for me looking at other leaders I am not sure I have noticed that all leaders have taste. 

Now I do believe that leaders have a sense of the aesthetic as well as an ability to see what will work for others in a social exchange. I think this comes from a deep seated understanding of human nature and human interaction  

Challenge: Post a comment on this article. Do leaders have taste or not?
