I'd look at the other survivors skill sets and we would come up with a plan that had the best chance of success. A lot would depend on the size of the island, availability of food/game, what we had with us and "who" we had with us and the likelihood of a long stay or a short one. .

I'd be the honest **** that looked at the situation realistically and pointed out the hard choices that needed to be made. I would survive, and if the others want to survive, they have to contribute.

In survival situations, a leader just naturally emerges as the person who is making the best decisions at the time, given the circumstances. In one environment, you might be the one best to lead. In another environment, Billy Bob might be the best. The key is for those of us who are used to leading, and those who are used to following, make wise choices and ditch the egos.

I would be the one that would encourage others to not give up, and then do whatever I could to help all of us survive.

Usually in those situations, the alpha's come out to take over. I would just hold back and see how they handled things and fill whatever role was lacking, however if there was a leadership void for any reason or if the current leadership sucked, I'd speak up and fill that role too.

Also... islands always have a mysterious bunker buried and hidden in the jungle just waiting to be found...

Depends on how many survivors. If there are enough for the mandatory roles, I would take it upon myself to document everything like the good little journalist I am.

I would probably be trying to defuse the wanna be alphas from arguing too much... trying to back the best plan I heard, and trying to explore the resources we have and trying to come up with the best idea.

And fill in on roles that we didn't have enough of.

Of course, fire, water, food and shelter come first.
