A simple question: Do you think men should live for and by themselves, or for and by others?

I'm an individualist, obviously.

Both.

People should be helpful to each other but they definitly shouldn't rely solely on others. The main reason we should be helpful to eachother is for the good of the species, and since the good of the species is the primary #1 exsistence of any form of life it would make sense to help eachother.

But, again, we shouldn't become so reliant on people that we can't function on our own.

I'm an individualist, I don't care much for most other people, unless I know them. I prefer to try and gain individual success and achievement, rather then working with a group towards it.

I think man should aspire to help others when they can, but at the end of the day self and the very limited collection of friends and family are most important. Does that sound like I just can't pick a side?

I would say individualist if I really couldn't straddle the line.

Yes, I understand the poll seems very "black or white". That was intentional.

Individualist divide the common goal of society. I guess I'm a Collectivist most of the time. Actually I'm just strange most of the time but I will vote Collectivist.

I believe that each person's actions should warrent themselves what they deserve, so I would be an individualist. To each his own

I'd say just about the same thing. I've never really been 'all for' with working in groups on things. It's not that I was/am ever extremely shy or anything; I just work(ed) on things better by myself.

Collectivist. If everyone was individualistic we'd all be screwed.
