Alpha/Beta is about attitude and behaviour, Alpha guys are the guys that do what they want and don't care what others think of them. Beta guys are the guys who care about everyones feelings, they are the ''soft'' types. It's better to be alpha than to be beta if you really want to achieve anything meaningfull i'd say.
Alpha male - the leader of company. (aggressive, usually hairy and very masculine with deep voice and very high self-confidence)
Beta male - his right hand / assistant. (may be 2nd leader if Alpha is absent, less aggressive, better for education, usually more calm).
both have a lot of grills and success in life. people like such men the most.
the rest are Gammas, Deltas and poor Omegas (losers).
Sigma is the best
Beta is just people who follow others like sheep
Alpha is more the leader or the guy who protects when his pack of friends are in danger, betas are the ones that stay back and let the "tougher" guy fix
Alpha has balls and confidence, beta are sheep
Sigma is like alpha but he has no pack, he believes that he himself is enough to be happy, although if its needed he can be leader in group aswell.
You underestimate Beta in your post I think. It's not a loser like Omega, Beta usually have good communication skills, but they lack of own leadership qualities. They are 2nd after Alphas in male/female hierarchy.
Don't know about Sigmas btw, you might be right, I need to read more about it and do more research. Cuz I don't remember all things I've read before about this topic.. :p
More of the population are ordinary / "grey-mass" (Gamma-Delta) people and "losers" (Omegas). Alphas and Betas are the top of hierarchy. Alphas are more aggressive and are more leaders, Betas have less confidence, but they are better than Gammas/Deltas/Omegas etc. Betas are like Doctor Watson and Alphas are like Sherlock Holmes.
nah but being straight beta is not nice
you always rely on others, and do whatever people tell you to do
obvously classing people black and white like this is stupid, just do whatever the fuck makes you happy, no girls care about this, honestly most girls ive met just think its childish as fuck when people pretend to be macho / alpha, if someone truly is then fine xd
Beta is leader when Alpha is absent. But when Alpha is present Beta is his helper and he becomes obedient. About classifying people agree, but I had a lot of proof about these Alpha-Beta-Gamma-Delta-Omega theory and it is reasonable.
if a beta is leader then he is no longer a beta
the hierarchy changes during the situation, groups adapt.
If 20 omegas are grouped together 1 of them will become the leader /take alpha role, this is proven in studies.
deep voice>debatable, there're people with a deep voice who sound like shit in mic and vice verse(as an example)
hairy>in theory, but if we look at the realistic pov beard is overrated nowadays, sure it's looking good on(some) people but the fact that every jackass thinks that beard=alpha pretty much loses a point of beards
masculine>using masculine is pretty much like programmer saying to a random guy "its an algorithm"
Dude I know what you want to say. And I agree, that there is no 100% charasteristics for those types, I just put some common of them. People are different for sure and they might be mixed with those types, one person can be Alpha and beta in same time.
(aggressive, usually hairy and very masculine with deep voice and very high self-confidence) Show me the research then. This is so random wtf. Alpha people are confident. Muscles and have deep vocie comes form of the testostreon, rest is bs
As I said it's just a common characteristics and they might be wrong or mixed with some people. It's not 100% theory and 100% selection on those types, I just put only common opinions about those types.
"Do some research" You are retarded
"betas-less aggressive, better for education, usually more calm)." Beta will easily get provoked and argue. Alpha guys will never argue if they know they are right. If a guy is alpha, you will get pissed and you will be the one providing arugments while he is calm and just doesn't say anything- his value is so high that a beta will just think of more arguments instead of waiting for an anwser.
I don't know why you call me retarded btw. And you are wrong when you say that Alphas never give evidences of their opinions. Alphas are leaders and they might teach people and lead them sometimes and for sure they must argue sometimes.
You are really wrong here, think about it with calm mind.
Imagine Alpha as an adult. Does he argue with kids? He treats them like kids, of course not. Whats the reason? Thats what alpha people do. We are talking about alpha traits not some "gurus"
Gammas, Deltas and poor Omegas (losers). - This is why I called you retarded.
BEtas are the losers and alphas are leaders
Being the 2nd cool man in company means you are loser? I disagree here. For me losers are mostly ordinary and grey people like Gammas or Deltas and for sure Omegas who are too shy and can't protect themselves and take what they want.
2nd cool man in company XDDD what the actual fuck are you talking about?
Im telling you there is only alpha and beta. If you cant understand the difference between these two, why bother making up more categories? :'-0
Not rekt. Why you think that there is only Alpha and Beta? Just try to remember your classmates in your school. There are always 1-2 alphas and all of them have 1-2 close friend (betas) who is more silent and help them, and there are the other people who seem to be led by those and listen to those etc. And in mostly every class there is 1-2-3 losers (Omegas), they are not Betas for sure, they are truly losers and hated by the most of the people in the class, they might be Omegas by different criteria (too shy, too weak, too stupid, too ugly etc.).
Why is your research based on a shitty ukrainian highschool class? XDD grow up kiddo
"too ugly" XDDD What are you talking about. Its about the character/attitude not looks. Just because someone is handsome doesnt mean hes an alpha
Also even if you think there are more categories it goes
ALPHA>OMEGA>BETA>SIGMA but youre retarded anyway
1. About looks, yeah it is said mostly about those ugly people who consider themselves as ugly that's why they might be Omegas in their company/class etc.
2. About "Ukrainian highschool class" it's bullshit, it was my own research, not a class or something. I just like reading books/articles on interesting topics. And I like psychology at some point.
3. Alpha > Beta > Gamma > Delta > Omega are usually types of men/women by psychologists. Never heard about Sigma type, but it might be even worse than Omega.
4. No I'm not retarded.
Why Beta is better than Omega? Cuz Beta usually is not shy like Omega, Beta is not so true confident leader like Alpha, but Beta usually is still respected by others. Omega is shy, no self-confident, loser, people might laugh/ignore him (depends on society level).
If you want an example - Sherlock Holmes is an Alpha and Doctor Watson is Beta, but it doesn't mean he is bad/loser or smth, he is just not the leader, he is 2nd man all the time. But he is still much better than Omega loser or any ordinary "grey-mass" Gama or Delta.
The theory I've typed is even proved by my own experience. And it's been proved in school and at the university. Alpha is the leader, beta is the helper of leader, the rest are followers and there are valuable followers aka Gammas or Deltas and less valuable followers aka losers aka Omegas.
well yeah. you have natural leaders, and followers.
but on hltv everyone tries to act like an alpha, probably mainly out of insecurity
of coursew there arew different types of leaders also, but thats a different topic.
and just because someone's a dickhead to others doesnt make them alpha
all this stories about how you handle and etc that you read above are just stupid
lets be real there is only one metric for alpha/beta: money
anything else is working only if you trying to be alpha inside your group with the same earnings.
There are a lot of smart Betas / Omegas with money, but they are not Alphas and might never be. Money has nothing to do with your type of a man.
Btw this theory with Alphas/Betas/Gammas/Deltas/Omegas works for women in the same way mostly.
For sure you are right. Financial status is important for some people nowadays. But you are again wrong about "poor alpha never dating top model". I have example of rich and beautiful women who fall in love with poor, but manly and kinda alpha men.
This is a narrative derived from terms applied to animals, that you find among people who believe heavily in virility, and as a result categorize people based on what they defined as manly traits. In this system, the more manly traits you display in your behavior and appearance, the closer to "alpha" (as in leader) you are supposed to be, and the less manly traits you display, the closer to "beta" (as in follower) you are supposed to be. Note that there are sometimes other categories that are used for different kinds of people, such as those who are deemed manly enough to not be beta, but not manly enough to be alpha.
Of course this all comes down to what defines a man and how a man should act, which is quite debatable.
It also usually overlooks completely other characteristics besides virility.
I find this view simplistic and even ridiculous. It's just something that some people tell themselves to simplify the world and how they should act, as well as an excuse to alienate people who don't conform to some arbitrary standards of expected behavior.
