The emergence of leaders and followers is a key factor in facilitating group cohesion in both human and non-human animals. Individual group members have been shown to respond to each other’s behaviour, thereby strongly affecting the emergence and maintenance of these social roles. However, it is not known how long previous social interactions might affect an individual’s leading and following tendencies. For this beer talk I will present research I conducted with three-spined sticklebacks to investigate this question and will discuss the results in the context of the emergence and maintenance of social roles within groups.
