Do Anarchists think most people don't need a leader (authority figure) and are self-sufficient enough?

Yes many anarchists do think most people are ready and would do just fine if authority disappeared tomorrow.

Others think most people are not at all self-sufficient, but can throw off their leaders and reliance on leaders and learn to do things their own ways.

Others are even more pessimistic, and think most people will always "need" (maybe not truly but effectively) leaders. That anarchy is not for most people, at least not most people alive today.
