Do we know what the ratio of leaders to followers are?

Not everyone is a leader or a follower in life so my question is: If 100 people were put on a desert island and nurtured and loved. If they were equally taught leadership skills what percentage would step up to the plate and actually become leaders?

        This would lack any sense for me...
