This exploratory study identified the qualities and functions of leaders, as well as the costs and benefits of leadership for leaders and followers, from a representative sample of nonindustrial societies. It was published in a special issue of Evolution and Human Behavior, “Beyond WEIRD”, commemorating and discussing the 10th anniversary of Henrich et al.’s paper, The weirdest people in the world?
