I do not like leading groups, especially bigger ones. They make me feel slightly bossy, I mean how can I find out/understand everyones opinion?

I'm the oldest in my family, so I kinda take the "leader" role. Around my friends I'm more of a follower. Sometimes I wish I wasn't such a leader in my family, but they need someone to keep them under control. With my friends I feel like sometimes I'm too quiet and need to express my opinion more.
