One of the most popular personality types in the socio-sexual hierarchy, the Betas are the followers of the Alpha male. They are known to play safe, avoid confrontations and risks and worship women. They usually lack the physical attractiveness, confidence and charm of the Alphas and Sigmas. They are loyal and good with obeying and implementing orders. Maintaining their rank in the hierarchy is important to them and they will take a stand when the hierarchy is disrupted. They are loyal lieutenants to the Alphas and usually have successful careers. John the Baptist is a good example for this category of men.
Jabba writes “They are also confident, but don’t have quite as much swagger and are less prone to boasting than Alpha Males.” He explains that Betas “can thrive in hierarchies, they can get attractive women, and they don’t need to engage in all the risk taking and status jockeying of the Alpha.” This is why there are more Beta males out there than authentic Alphas.
They are your average nice guys who are kind, decent and likable. They are usually calm, grounded and rarely aggressive. They know how to control their egos and know how to take criticism in a positive way. They are mostly reserved and idealistic. They are mostly secure and tend to be happy in life.
Most men tend to be Deltas. These are your average normal guys who work hard to run the society. They are not the most attractive men and hence they struggle with attracting women. They mostly focus on attracting women who are better than their female equivalents. However, if they manage to be in a relationship with a woman better than them, they tend to become insecure and put their partner on a pedestal as they worry the woman will soon lose interest and leave them. This, ironically, becomes the very reason why they have failed relationships. Women are usually indifferent to them. The fictional character Jason Bourne is a textbook example of this personality type.
“They tend to be average looking, with nothing particularly striking physically or mentally. Think of Deltas as ‘worker bees’. Whilst Deltas do have some limited success with women, they do not really understand women and view them somewhat fearfully,” explains Jabba. The Delta male is one step below the Beta but often mistakenly considers themselves as a Beta male. They place high value on hard work and competency.
It is widely believed that these types of men are physically and mentally weak and have no focus on self-improvement. They believe in thriving and surviving by associating themselves with an Alpha male or a Beta.
They are usually unattractive, bitter and introspective. These are the men who are obsessive lovers, stalkers, psycho-jealous ex-boyfriends, abusers, narcissists, offenders, social justice warriors and conmen. Gammas are often confused with the socio-sexual hierarchy and keep themselves away from the Alpha male, Betas and even Sigmas. They are generally not part of any group and fail to follow social rules. Although they are intelligent, they tend to overestimate their intellect and hence believe that they should have a higher rank in the structure. They believe they are better than Alpha, Sigma, Beta and even Delta.
Gammas are mostly invisible to women and are mostly unsuccessful in attracting the opposite sex. Although they are romantic and sensitive, women tend to hate gammas and are often put in the friendzone. Gamma males either worship women or completely hate them. They are not social rejects, but sexual rejects. Jordan Peterson and the fictional character Harry Potter are some good examples of Gammas.
