Which has the most benefits? Why did you choose the one you did?

I would rather that I rather be loved, but I think in all honesty I would rather be feared.

I prefer to be loved. A lot more pleasure comes of that.

Depends on the situation. I would modify my behavior to effectuate the outcome I desired.

Probably loved because my subjugates would graciously lay down their lives for noble causes which served myself.

Then again, I assume that "loved" is not used in the context of "sexual love" because having orgies with subjugates=/=Bad idea.

loved, because fear leads to alliances against you, whereas love doesnt

Feared, the people who love you hurt you the most.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%
