Followership is a developing paradigm in organizational behavior which focuses mainly on followers. Exploring follower's views about followership role that is known as follower's implicit followership theories(IFTs) is the goal of this study. For this purpose, based on a phenomenological approach, semi-structured interviews with employees of large public and private organizations, in Mashhad were analyzed by exploratory content analysis. A total of 25 categories of implicit theories were detected in 5 prototypes and 5 anti-prototypes. Followership prototypes consist of constructive perception of work, job competencies, mighty arm of leader, moral virtues and initiation pattern; five anti-prototypes were named as role deviances including destructive behaviors, obedience, incompetency, indifference and blue color. Reflecting on findings, a 5dimentional model can be identified, each dimension has its prototypes and anti- prototypes. Results also show that follower's IFTs differ from leader's follower's implicit followership theories.
