As an Alpha male, you will know that Alpha males do command a lot of respect because they get things done. In a world where being politically correct has become the new religion, being different, especially being an Alpha male, is a path few explore. But to be honest, it is a breath of fresh air to listen to someone who calls things the way it is without sugarcoating everything. In many ways, this is exactly what the world wants and needs. They are waiting for people to take action and move forward. Who has the character and confidence to do so, and in so doing, everyone moves forward.

As an Alpha male, you will make enemies, or in better terms, there will be people who will not like you because of jealousy, feeling threatened, and their weaknesses. Most other males have grown soft and want to be cuddled to death before you get any results from them.

It is effective even if in the world’s eyes you are leaving people behind with scars to get the things done to give you the life you want.

Being an Alpha male is not a bad thing. You may feel beaten up sometimes because of the negative labels thrown at you. But if you can learn to harness your good points and manage your less attractive personality traits, your life is set for exponential success.
So if you experience any of the following, you may be on that path to becoming extremely successful and even evolve from an Alpha male to the highly sought-after Sigma male.

  • Get easily annoyed when others slow down a process that could bring you success.
  • Feel insulted when others do not pay you respect to the point where revenge becomes fuel for the anger that boils over.
  • You know that you are good at what you do, but you feel that others slow you down.
  • You often get labeled unfairly for being driven.
  • You can control a conversation, and you are normally the one leading and initiating conversations.

An Alpha male is driven by this yearning to become the best he can be and achieve more than what he achieved the day before.

Yes, your ego plays a massive role in what you do, but why not feel proud of what you accomplished and accumulated. It may sound naïve and shallow. But the modern politically correct world wants to exist on a notion that just good enough is good enough until they see you, an Alpha male, applying Alpha male strategies to achieve the life you have.

So what do Alpha males desire the most? To be the best they can be and to be proud of that.

    what women think of you as an alpha male

    Women fall head over heels in love with Alpha males more often than not. There is an animalistic attraction that women find hard to resist. Your high testosterone male personality does give you a dominating persona that gives you an instant edge above other men.

    The women that tend to end up with alpha males are alpha females themselves. They understand the personality of an alpha male very well because Alpha females are so highly motivated themselves.

    Women who fall lower on the social hierarchy will find you too much and sometimes a bit cocky, but still, they will have an incredible sexual attraction towards you. If they do end up with any other male personality type that is not a Sigma or Alpha male like yourself, they will fantasize about you during their ho-hum sexual encounters with their partners.

    Women will also compare their husbands to your high-energy, go-getter personality and will soon find their husbands boring compared to you.
    At women’s social gatherings, you will be at the top of the ‘to talk about list’ and your accomplishments in life will make them wish they were the ones who were next to you.

    Your friends enjoy being with you, and because you have applied the typical Alpha male strategies throughout your life, in your life, you have created a lifestyle others only dream to have.

    Your high energy and bright outlook on the future are inspiring, and it is almost as if your friends come over to soak up some of it to get inspired themselves to achieve more.

    what your colleagues and boss think of you as a beta male

    AS an Alpha male personality, you will most definitely have more energy than most people with who you work. How they feel about you will most definitely depend on the boss you have.

    Most managers will love your energy when you go for an interview but will soon find you to be too much to handle, especially if their personality styles fall on a lower rung of the male social hierarchy. If they do, they will find you a threat to their position, so they will tend to bully and suppress you at work.

    The people you work for will be the same. If they are Beta males, Omega males, or any other male personality type that falls on a lower rung of the male social hierarchy, they will feel you threaten their workspace and workflow. They will think you encroach on their space, and they will talk about you behind your back. Better strap on that stab vest because the one thing lower-ranking males do well, is backstabbing.
