– Do you see yourself as emotionally self-sufficient? – Are you likely to get straight to the point in conversations?Now, of course, there needs to be room for individual differences, personality styles and family backgrounds, but generally, if you responded more YES than NO, the research suggests you may be an Alpha Female.There seems to be a common misconception that Alpha Females need to partner up with Alpha Males.In reality, this often leads to a clash when both partners compete for power, dominance and to be ‘on top’ (pardon the pun).Knowing you are a beta male and why you are beta is the first step in becoming Alpha.Below we list out the beta male traits and beta male characteristics so you can see where you fall in the spectrum of beta.My husband will occasionally tell me a story — about apologizing to someone who was in the wrong or a tense email exchange that he ended with a smiley face — and wryly conclude, “That’s how beta I am.” Personally, I would prefer to call this “sensitivity, emotional intelligence, and peacemaking.” But, sure, if we’re to crudely categorize men as either alpha or beta, leaving zero room for nuance, and if we define kind, nurturing behaviors that cannot be categorized as stereotypically, defensively masculine as “beta,” I suppose my husband is a beta. I thought of this recently because a new book, “The Alpha Woman Meets Her Match” by Sonya Rhodes, is making the media rounds with its highly clickable message: strong, career-driven women will be happiest with a “beta” male.As the book jacket reads, “Challenging gender stereotypes associated with the terms Alpha and Beta, [Rhodes] advises the Alpha woman to look past the overly competitive, domineering Alpha male for a man who is not threatened by her strengths but is communicative, responsible, and collaborative.
The masculine father figure was replaced by a women that raised her boy into a beta male.Alpha males are driven by passion, by their wants, needs, goals and dreams.Their sole purpose in life is to create the lives they wish for themselves. They are our leaders, our trendsetters, our troublemakers and our innovators. Being an alpha male is great in many ways and depressing in countless others. The same goes for alpha women looking for their counterparts.More often than not, we'll find the most difficult task for us is finding a partner — finding someone to rule the world with us. Step one is understanding what you need to look for.You can argue that beta males are raised or through life events or through evolution.We go into this in more detail in The Book of Alpha.The omega male doesn’t have the power to reject anything — he’s the one who has been brushed off. Men who have even read a feminist text or contemplated their privilege.He’s generally unemployed, and his romantic relationships are in shambles — he’s either single or, if he’s married, not happy about it.”I’m talking about men who lead with emotional intelligence, openness, sensitivity and understanding. Men who aren’t defined by traditional expectations of their gender.This caused boys growing into men to believe that a women’s definition of a man was right. Other’s may argue that we are all descendants of beta male cavemen.When cavemen lived in a small society populated by very few people, any cavemen that stood out or acted alpha became an outcast.
