Leadership essay - Character from a film? [#permalink] New post 01 Nov 2004, 19:11
Hello all,

The question:

Quote:
Quote:
Take the example of a leader (living or deceased) you admire and indicate the traits you like


I understand that traditionally this question is to be answered with a real life person etc.

Could I use a character from a film as the example of a leader?

The main character from "Gladiator" or ....

My concerns:
* This may not be what the admissions committe is looking for
* If the leader is to be someone I have been admiring for a long time then the movie I have in mind came out in the late 1990s
* Other concerns?

Any thoughts most welcome.

Thanks,
Rahul.

I think some readers might take a fictional character the wrong way. A real person has had to overcome a number of challenges. A fictional character rarely experiences such "real" challenges and if so usually encounters them in a rather artificial way. I think that a character from modern popular culture would be even more difficult to use than one from classical artistic works. However, I readily concede that others might view this situation differently.

I edited the original question by adding (living or deceased).

Thank you for your feedback hjort.
