The adjacent ones have more in common with each other than the ones that are opposite each other. This can be expanded to include more models as well which would probably aid in making this model more accurate. I believe this can be expanded further to include multiple levels such as a central circle made of character traits which are shared by these leadership styles. I am too lazy to make a clear picture of this. So here goes:

Comments and feedback invited.
