They are as temperamental as any other follower... Normally, they have no problem doing what you ask as long as it fits their "function". (Follower Reluctance Page 85-86). Since it's difficult to get a spirit to do something against it's nature ("Fire-lance, Let me breathe underwater" doesn't really seem likely), you probably always use the "Trivial" row, unless you've been doing stuff your Ally doesn't like (Riding horses, say, or making friends with the "wrong sort" of spirit).
