Sigma Male: What separates them from an alpha and a beta.
We are aware of two main male personality types.
On one end of the spectrum are the Alpha males who are aggressive, confident, extroverted, dominating and like to lead the pack.
On the other end of the spectrum are the Beta males who are introverted, collaborative and submissive and like to follow the instructions.
It is very easy to spot an Alpha male from a mile away because they are too loud and aggressive and they flex their muscle too hard to stand out.
You can also spot a Beta male very easily because they are too introverted and submissive and they just blend into the crowd.
But what about the guys who don’t lean into the crowd?
Who are neither leaders nor followers?
Who are the rebels and the rule breakers: who dance to the beat of their own drum?
This is a new personality type that is emerging which is neither Alpha nor Beta.
