  • Leaders & Revolutionaries
  • Builders & Titans

Figures such range from Steve Jobs who has been on the list five times. To the Dalai Lama who has been on the list three times. To Oprah Winfrey who is in the lead with nine times being listed. Each year people from around the world are given the opportunity to vote for who they feel are the most influential people. Depending on your views you may feel that some are very influential, and some are not, Time lets you make the decision. Giving you the option to up-vote or to down-vote someone.
