The beta male is actually the second most powerful wolf of the pack behind the alpha, and the one most likely to take over next. I don't even know if people know what they're talking about when they mention alpha and beta males.

I do understand the meaning, though, despite the inaccurate terminology. Context is enough.

It's basically a crappy way of telling guys that they need to be more decisive and bold. You don't have to be a douche to be an alpha. You just need to be manly and reliable. Being manly means shouldering the burdens others are unable to, thinking things through and making good choices so people can rely on you, being trustworthy and meaning what you say. You're hardly an alpha, after all, if everyone around you hates your guts and doesn't want to be around you. That's just stupidity and immaturity, not manliness. If you want to lead people, you can't alienate them. It's easy to be a jerk. Even a quiet introvert like me can do it. It's much harder to actually get people to acknowledge you as their leader.


No one has to be the leader though.

I'm not a follower but i won't lead people either.


Sometimes, you do need someone decisive. If nobody steps up, I do it. I don't like situations where everyone is wasting everyone else's time by letting them choose and nobody knows where to go or what to do.

"Where should we go?"
"I dunno, you choose!"
"I chose last time, you can choose."
"But I don't know, can we go there?"
"But we went there last time."
"You can choose, I don't care."


Eh i just choose to go off by my own in those situations when possible if not i just go with the flow and spend the whole time doing my own thing.

I goto a group and if i don't like what they do i just play on my phone for example i'm not good at following orders and avoid it if i can.
More of a lone person who works by himself but i guess i do follow people sometimes but i prefer not to.

Yeah, but those times are times that I feel like doing something as a group. I like to be alone but I like to be with friends, too. I wouldn't just ditch everyone after we took the time off to get together.

I'm surprised someone posted my exact thoughts. Yeah, most people should be fairly balanced and act according to the situation.

Could be wrong, but my understanding of the alpha/beta thing is that some people don't like teenage boys trying to flatter girls and not really knowing what else to do with them. I don't think that has anything to do with their made-up personality theory, though.

Not a magical soul thread SURPRISE.

Anyhow i keep hearing these terms brought up in CR forums lately and honestly i want to say something.

As someone who fits in neither category i think they are both stupid and generilizations.

The traits of an Alpha male are generally traits of a prick and a loser in my honest opinion a "bad" boy who attracts women who are pathetic to say none the least.

Most of the "Alpha" people i have met attract pathetic women and the girls who go after them for there money and looks are just gold diggers and well pathetic people in general.

Now the whole "BETA" male thing is oh he follows orders and is shy he is a follower instead of a leader.
This is no a bad thing in many cases followers are just as good as the leaders and in some cases better in most cases you will find leaders are stuck up and where they are good in leadership skills they lack in the skills the followers have.

Now as someone who Isn't a leader or a follower i generally find both to be well... Pathetic Generalizations and something cringy to even use.

an "alpha" is no better then a "beta" it's all subjective and to say otherwise is foolish i have lived long enough to have seen alot of "Alpha and Beta" Males and i can tell you that the "Beta" males i hear tons of girls and guys shitting on tend to have better relationships and they aren't based on looks or money and function on love.

Of course this is not always the case but its very apparent.


The whole girls go after someone who can provide and protect them and is an alpha male is just delusional and far from the truth there are alot of women who go for people and provide for them and protect them.

Not all women want the "Alpha male" and alot of women despise that kind of person to assume all women want to "Upsize" or go for a better man is nothing but pure delusion since not all women are the same and it is not human nature to do so.

Seriously this whole "Alpha,Beta" bullshit needs to stop i'm sick of hearing about it (Hypocrite since i'm talking about it)
does anyone else agree?

I think those who go round spouting the "Girls like alpha males and will leave people for one" is bullshit and plain delusion.

Only a slut leaves someone for someone who looks better and has more money and good riddance.

Ugh. Leader and Follower is simplifying it so much it's not even funny. I like being in a group. That doesn't mean I'll blatantly follow everything group leaders say or never take my own objective. I don't get why everyone thinks the distinction between follower and leader is black and white.

To an extent this is true whether we like it or not we still follow some of our animal instincts. With humans the dynamic can change very quickly though. A "beta" can go from a follower to a leader very quickly.

The terms are too loosely used and lack a certain finesse.

But, nowadays, a lot of people wants to be a leader in a team. They skip a process or two and blindly ignore the bottom/foundation. From there the whole thing crumbles in front of their eyes.

There's a saying, "too many captains can lead a ship onto a mountain."
