By following a figure, does it reflect what kind of value one has?
In this world, there are countless successful people in their fields. In their areas, a figure inevitably has some followers or admirers. There are thousands and millions of fans that freak out and are meticulously lookout for the actions and behaviours of their idol.
Other than idols, some figures demonstrate outstanding abilities in their fields. The demeanour they figure express emanates the quality that the admirers desire. By exhibiting this quality, it piques people’s inner desire to be the person they follow.
The figure available in society is not always the one that has the positive quality for the others. As there is no definite right or wrong on a person’s value, the figures in society exert their influences in different ways. With influence capability, a person may get more approval than others.
By representing the value of a group, a leader who is subjectively having a distorted view may be followed by a mass. By showing resonance to the public, he is depicted as a hero to deliver mass aspiration.
A villain could be admired through his charisma and fighting the existing system and structure. For instance, Robin Hood, despite stealing from the rich, the poor have supported him due to his ability to fight the structured social system.

View from another perspective, a person’s value can be seen from what the person follows. Therefore, to be ideal, it is substantial to choose the correct figure to follow.
