11 Personality Traits Of A Sigma Male That Sets Them Apart

Personality Traits Sigma Male

You might not hear much about a sigma male like you hear about alpha males and beta males. But what it is about them, that is underrated but at the same time really, really attractive?

On one end of the spectrum are the Alpha males who are aggressive, confident, extroverted, dominating, and like to lead the pack. It is very easy to spot an Alpha male from a mile away because they are very loud and aggressive and they flex their muscles too hard to stand out.

On the other end of the spectrum are the Beta males who are introverted, collaborative, and submissive and like to follow instructions. You can also spot a Beta male very easily because they are too introverted and submissive and they just blend into the crowd.

So, who exactly is a Sigma male?

Apart from Alpha males, and Beta males, there is another category, and that’s the Sigma male.

A Sigma male is the one who is neither interested in being a leader nor interested in being a follower. He is not the one to be loud or aggressive trying to grab everyone’s attention in the room nor is he shy and introverted pretending not to exist in the room.

Sigma men are the ones who are happy being themselves and doing their own thing and not giving a hoot about what others think of them. They are extremely self-aware and comfortable in their own skin and don’t feel the need to prove a point to anyone.

They are not driven by societal expectations and choose not to follow the herd. Interestingly, they don’t need a lot of material comforts and possessions from society like other men do. This is because they are always driven by their own internal drives and values.

A Sigma male is often an entrepreneur or a traveling nomad who goes off on offbeat ventures because he seeks adventure and knowledge more than material possessions or safety and security. He lives on the edge and is extremely independent and pursues his own dreams and goals with unrelenting passion. This is one of the biggest reasons why they are also very attractive to women.

Sigma males are gradually getting more recognition, and it’s not just about Alpha and Beta males anymore.

Here Are 11 Personality Traits Of A Sigma Male That Sets Them Apart

Personality Traits Sigma Male infographics

1. He likes to fly solo and is very independent.

A Sigma male is mostly a lone wolf who likes to fly solo and likes it, even more, to do things his way without anyone else’s interference. He is never influenced by societal expectations or labels and is predominantly driven by his own internal values and goals.

He would never bow down to anyone’s ideals, and always prefers to follow his own ideals and carve his own path. Sigmas don’t really care about being in a team or a group, as they are perfectly comfortable doing their own thing, in their own way.

2. He has a mysterious personality.

Most of the time, you will never know what is through the mind of a Sigma male. Neither do they want to starkly stand out, nor do they want to conform, and this is what adds to the air of mystery around them. It’s quite a challenge to figure them out, and that’s why most people are so drawn to them.

Their mysterious personality is what makes them so attractive to most people.

3. He likes silence.

A Sigma male likes silence not because he is shy but because he is reflective and observant. He is a man of few words. He will not speak something just to fill in the silence, or just to add to the conversation, for the sake of it. He will take his time to listen, analyze, and think before speaking.

    Sigma males are the most adaptable guys out there, and are easily mistaken for beta. However, they live in their own world and understand when they are needed. Other than that. The best way to describe a sigma male is that he is a servant to those around him and leads by example.

  2. Bullshit about the adrinaline junkies. But the rest is kind of close. Interesting though the photos are of guys in normal mens attire.

    1. Karl, I agree. But my interpretation of “adrenalin” junkie was that of, no fear of: group to group, project to project, experience to experiences that are disparate but connected, flow. Most are highly afraid of this and some thrive! Adrenalin junkie, not!
