Social Personality Types & The Social Hierarchy – What’s Your Type & Where Are You On The Hierarchy? (Find Out Here!)
Have you ever noticed how people in society tend to congregate into different groups (social cliques) based on their personality types? And that each person tends to have a certain status in their group, and each group tends to have a certain status in society? This is because societies exist with a social structure called a “hierarchy”, also known as “classes” of people, from the most dominant high status leaders at the top, to the subordinate/submissive and average members in the middle, to the unpopular low level/status members at the bottom, and even some outliers.
This is not something that has been organized intentionally by government authorities and social engineering, this is simply the inherent way of the world and the natural order of us social animals. And where you fall into place and exist in the social hierarchy is entirely based upon your social personality type and what your natural place in your social environment is. So if you have ever been curious about sociology and the social structure of society and why things are the way that they are, or wondered about who you are socially and why your social life is the way it is, this article is going to explain exactly that to you. We will start at the top of the social hierarchy, and work our way to the bottom.
Sigma Male – The Dominant Lone Wolf
The sigma male is the “Apex Predator” (the absolute top of the food chain). They are almost exactly like the alpha male archetype that everyone is all too familiar with, but with some more specialized variations that make them even higher on the social hierarchy, but also rarer. They are extremely strong dominant personalities who are very confident and energetic go-getter types who are successful in almost all situations and everything that they do, especially social life and business. They are generally physically fit (enough to win most physical competitions), and are socially aggressive and thus win almost all social competitions as well (even more than the alpha males in fact). They and tend to do what they want and get what they want, even if they are a bit audacious at times. But they are also very socially intelligent, savvy, outgoing and charismatic which are the keys to why they are successful in any social situation, and they do not intimidate others unless they need to. Though they certainly can be very intimidating if they need to be (which they are often seen as for those who are not close enough to their level in these ways), and they will not let themselves be marginalized or trumped by others, much less bullied. They are highly assertive people and will easily become confrontational when they need to, and come out on top in that confrontation, as they have no problems defending themselves, or others in their circle (especially their women).
The main difference between them and the alpha males you are already familiar with is that Sigma males exist outside of any single social groups, and any one social hierarchy, but instead they traverse between different ones. They are not usually rejected by any groups, but will be popular members of most any that they enter. Sigma males are the alpha male’s greatest competition, and sigma males most often win over the alpha males, because the sigma male’s dominance exists independently of one single group, or hierarchy, but they have learned to assert it throughout many social environments and groups. So while the alpha male’s dominance is isolated to one group/hierarchy, the sigma male’s dominance spans numerous social hierarchies. And so the sigma male will usually be able to overthrow the alpha male of any group they enter and become the Dominant “Alpha” of it one way or another, be it through sheer brute physical force, higher intellect, business success, social manipulation, political strategy, or just simple popularity (or perhaps even some other method that no one will ever think of but them). The sigma males are highly socially intelligent, cunning and strategic social leaders, who are conquistadors that are capable of taking over any other alpha male’s territory with offensive attacks and maneuvers. And so the sigma males can enter any new social environment, no matter how foreign, and rapidly ascend to the top of its social hierarchy and become a high status dominant leader of it as well.
However also unlike the normal “alpha males” you are accustomed to, they are a bit more introverted, and their sense of strength comes from within them, not from external social validation. So they do not feed off of attention from others like alpha males do, and though they are highly social beings, they tend to also want to spend much of their time in solitude as well as in social environments. Because Sigma males are unconcerned with social validation, they are not dependent upon their group or pack as alphas are, and are very independent and can be just as successful alone without the help of anyone else, and oftentimes prefer it that way. These times of lone introspection are one of the sources of the sigma male’s higher intellect (which the alphas usually lack). Because of their independence they have been able to become such strong, skilled, versatile characters that can succeed on their own in just about any situation or environment. And this is because they are highly intelligent, much more intelligent than alpha males whose strength and success comes largely from aggressiveness alone – whereas the strength and success of the sigma male comes largely from their great minds, knowledge and skill set. And because they are not as ego driven as the alpha male, they choose their battles more wisely, and any time they may lose one they do not take it personally as a blow to their self-esteem, but will simply take some time to think things over, re-strategize and then come back even stronger for the win. And so the sigma male is always bound to win eventually even if they may fail at first sometimes. However an alpha male is entirely ego driven, and does the exact opposite of this – puffs out their chest always looking for competitive ways they can prove themselves to their group just for the sake of their social/ego validation. So they do not choose their battles very well, and will sooner or later lose to a sigma male. And when an alpha male loses, they lose their sense of validation, and it often destroys their sense of self, thus knocking them down on the social hierarchy even further. This is why there is a very solid divide between the sigma types and the alpha types, which the sigmas are on top of.
So, though they are social masters, they are selectively social. And will equally value being alone, and will always want to take time away from others. They are just like the lone wolf in the wild who will go off on solitary adventure when it wants to, and then when it feels like having the company of a certain group, it will enter that group and overthrow the alpha male of it, becoming the alpha and causing the others to supplicate to him (especially the women), then leaving when he has lost interest and going off on a new solo adventure until he wants company again. This man goes from place to place, pack to pack, dominating each new environment he enters, and the social group he chooses where he competes with its existing alpha male and usually wins. Then he will exist as the most high status member of that group being given attention by the other group members and courted by its women, until he grows bored of their presence or wishes change groups or environments for whatever reason, and leaves them to go pursue his new interests since he is unlike most people who are bound to their social group & environment (comfort zone), and he is not. Sigma males are successful socially in almost any social situation, as well as in business, and thus they have the most freedom and power of anyone in the world. And this is because socially, they are both introverted, and extroverted, which is known as being an “ambivert”.
In mating, sigma males get the most attractive mates in the world. Even more attractive than the ones those alpha males get, because the sigma searches for and finds the best ones throughout multiple different social environments and hierarchies. They are usually polygamous types because of this. Though they may also be monogamous at times due to there being a scarcity of options for them at their very high standard, or simply a lack of multiple long term mating partners due to their transient social lifestyle which is not conducive to ongoing relationships, so they may find that there is only one woman who has the freedom (and power) to be able to stick with them longer than the others. Though because they do like being alone a large part of the time, they certainly do not mate for life, or even exclusively for extensive periods of time (unless they are with a rare type of woman strong enough to be able to spend long periods of time without them). Therein these men oftentimes tend to be the “international playboy” types, who will have a lot of sexual encounters or short sexual relationships & maybe even “love affairs” with many different women in different social hierarchies & environments. And they may end up with multiple offspring from multiple women in different social environments over the course of their life. But if they can find a woman who is a sigma type like they are, they can pair bond with her and the relationship can last, though this usually will only happen later in the sigma’s life. And so these types of men can produce both unstable and stable families, though they are apt to produce the former much more than the latter.
Professionally sigma males are most often politicians, entrepreneurs and business owners, celebrities such as actors, musicians, athletes and authors, and people whose jobs are independent and require a lot of travel, such as independent consultants and freelancers or other types of self-employed/business owners, and also just about every special agent, secret agent, spy and other such type of person will always be a sigma male type. Indeed, these are the hero’s that most people enjoy the stories of but don’t even bother aspiring to be like unless they are the most ambitious and driven people, but for those who do possess these qualities, it is possible to become a sigma male and live the kinds of lives that most people only see in the movies, like with famous characters such as James Bond. Sigma males have the most freedom and power in society (and across many different societies and social environments/hierarchies) than anyone else, even the alpha males of the world. It is because they have the most social mobility and freedom, to be able to not only ascend up one social hierarchy but across multiple different hierarchies and dominate any social environment, that they are the most successful and powerful people in the world. However these types are very rare and are seen in movies far more often than real life.
Alpha Male – Dominant Leader Of A Group
Alpha males, as you know, are like the sigma males in that they are very strong dominant personality types who are very confident and energetic go-getters who are successful socially, in business, and most everything that they do. They are generally physically fit enough to win physical competitions, and are socially aggressive and thus win almost all social competitions as well. They tend to do what they want and get what they want, even if they have to be a bit pushy. They are very extroverted, have good social skills and are likable popular people, which is another part of how they gain their status and win social contests. They generally only intimidate others when they need to, though they certainly can be very intimidating when they do need to be, and they will not let themselves be marginalized or trumped by others, much less bullied. They are highly assertive people and will easily become confrontational when they need to, and come out on top in that confrontation, as they have no problems defending themselves, or others in their circle (especially their women). The only exception to this is with the Sigma males, who are the only type of person who can generally ever beat an alpha male (other than a much stronger alpha of course).
The main difference between the alpha male and the sigma male is that the alphas exist within one specific social hierarchy and group, which it is the most dominant member and the authority/leader of. However his dominance is isolated to that one group/hierarchy or environment and does not extend outside of it as the sigma males does. Once he leaves this social paradigm and enters another he will oftentimes no longer be “The Alpha Male” of that environment. And even within his own social hierarchy he will have to continue to compete with other members of the environment to maintain alpha status, and will be the alpha for only as long as he can win those competitions.
Because the alpha male is the highest status authority of his immediate environment/hierarchy/group, it is a coveted position which most males either aspire to be, or aspire to be friends with, and which women aspire to mate with. And with his power and authority the alpha male will lead others in the direction he wants to go, and he will assert himself over other group members as needed for his own interests, and use the group dynamics and resources for his own benefit, much like royalty.
Though again, since he is only the authority of this immediate environment and hierarchy, and does not have social mobility across different ones as the sigma male does, his immediate group and environment is also his prison which he can never leave otherwise he will lose everything, and so he is stuck there in a perpetual struggle to maintain what he has. The alpha male does not have the same type of freedom the sigma male does, and his social life is a constant struggle to maintain dominance by competing with other alpha males in the environment, and even beta males who are attempting to ascend through the ranks to try to overthrow him and take his place, or worse, the very powerful sigma males that move in from other environments at random times and can instantly overthrow him. So most alpha males are not in dominant positions forever, and must fight not only to maintain it, but sometimes to re-gain it. The ones who are smartest and most ambitious will become sigma males where they can have more freedom and power, with less struggle. But those who only desire to ever remain in their immediate social environment and live in a comfort zone there will be stuck forever struggling for power and their “alpha status” within it.
In mating the alpha males get the most attractive mates within his specific hierarchy & group, and for that reason is usually a polygamous type that will have a harem of beautiful women and will often refuse to settle down with any one due to his sexual abundance, at least until he is of older age. Therein these men are the “bad boy player” types who usually have multiple sex partners within one social hierarchy, some of which may be short term, though others can be longer term, but their relationships will not be too long term while they are in their biological prime for reproductive success. And reproductive success is what the alpha male is designed for by nature, and thus he will often end up with multiple different offspring from more than one of his sexual partners, but because they are in the same social hierarchy and usually group, the modern alpha male (now with the ability to use contraception) will usually make general attempts to limits his procreation, especially since he is not well suited for fatherhood and being in a care-giving/provider role over young offspring, (which is more suited for beta males). And so he will continue his pattern of casual sex with multiple partners until eventually after decades of sexual activity he becomes well past his sexual reproductive prime and through ongoing social success his market value is peaking (now that he is in his 40’s). At this point he may often choose to pair bond with a single favored alpha female or high status beta female. However this couple will usually not marry and if they do it will usually end in divorce (or at least have cheating going on in it), since these types are simply not monogamous, and so exclusive long-term relationships never last with them, and if they have offspring they more often than not are are left with broken homes. In the end the alpha male will either go back to his life of casual sex, or will become tired of the same social patterns and become a sigma male traveler, or may retire to a lower social status for a more relaxed lifestyle altogether.
Professionally alpha males are most often politicians, CEO’s and business owners, executives and board members, supervisors and high level managers, and other people in leadership roles, as well as athletes and military (which is basically almost entirely made up of alpha males arranging themselves into a hierarchy of different levels), and they can also make very good salesmen and marketers, as well as good career criminals in organized crime (in which they are suited to become “bosses”). Of course every professional environment will also have its alpha leader of the group, who though despite his status in that environment may not actually be generally and predominantly an alpha personality who will be the alpha male of any other environments hierarchy.
Beta Male – Nice Guys, Followers & Providers
These are the subordinates to the alpha male directly underneath him in the social hierarchy. They will follow and supplicate to the alpha male, as well as the attractive females at the top of their social hierarchy. They may be either introverted, or extroverted, and are generally very social types of people. They are the especially “nice guy” types who are great to have in the group because they are friendly, positive and good-natured, as well as generally being social conformists who don’t deviate from the norm’s, rebel against rules, or try to challenge authority (at least very often, though it can happen at times and the alpha will have to remind them of their beta status). They will generally go along with and help the group dynamic in many ways, and they make great friends, because they are upstanding people.
Their mating strategy is niceness and providing for women, which though it may seem like a good idea, is not a huge success. In fact, generally women only want the “nice guy”/”provider” type when they have been rejected by the alpha male, or have already mated with him and failed to get him to pair bond with them and are getting older and seeking security (which the beta male can offer) And thus because of the scarcity of options for the beta males, and their socially/sexually non-aggressive nature and want to provide for women, they tend to be suited for monogamy. Beta males usually do not have many sexual partners, and most of their sex occurs only with pair bonding and in long term relationships. They are generally relationship oriented personality types and will try to make it work with the few women who they can get into relationships with, and will pair bond and provide for them in exchange for mating, so they usually will date a couple/few beta females, delta females, or maybe in some cases a lower female within their hierarchy, and after a few or more long term relationships will pair-bond permanently for one and get married and have multiple offspring with that one partner and have a stable family. Their marriages can last a long time, even a life time in some cases. Except for the cases in which the female (who may only be with him because he is providing for her) eventually feels that she can get a higher status male, and leaves him to pursue that goal. In even less fortunate cases, the hypergamous female may actually stay married to the beta male, while consorting with an alpha male in secret extramarital affairs, sometimes even becoming impregnated by him only to have the beta male believe the child is his and provide for it, which is a devious but successful mating strategy that more women employ than you may think, in order to attain the best sperm/genes for her offspring, as well as the best provisions and upbringing. These illegitimate children of cuckolded men accounted for 10% of children in a study conducted by Evolutionary Biologist Robin Baker detailed in the book “Sperm Wars”.
Professionally beta males are often times mid-level professionals such as managers, supervisors, assistant managers, various types of office workers, teachers, and just about any position that needs an upstanding individual to fill it (beta males are generally suited for a lot and make great employees). Beta males are generally socially intelligent and paired with their strong work ethic they can be very successful professionally, which can lead to them becoming socially mobile and transforming themselves into alpha males over time and under the right circumstances.
Delta Male – Average Joe Schmo, Worker Bee’s
These are the average members of society that don’t stand out, don’t have much going for them, and are not very successful, socially or otherwise. They are simple worker bees of society and are seen by everyone else as nobodies, the types of people you could work with for years and never know their name, or who they are, or even recognize them outside of work (or even at work sometimes, since they tend to make themselves scarce as they are not highly social like those above them in the hierarchy). They are socially introverted, they have very little personality and contribute very little, if any, value to any social situation. They are the types who will make an inconspicuous place for themselves in the corner of any room they are in and then largely go unnoticed the entire time they are there, even if it is all day. They may think that they are beta males but they are not, as they do not have what it takes to be socially successful or meet any social expectations society has for status and popularity. So they do not run in the same social circles that the beta males do, who are accepted by the alpha males and vice versa, while Delta males are rejected by both Alpha males and Beta males. They aren’t total losers or outcasts though, they are just too average and seen as too boring and lame to be invited into the social circles of most other people, so they generally only run with other deltas. They are the drones of masses that make up society, and though faceless, they are not unimportant since they are the gears that keep society functioning, and also the taxpayers that fund it. They make up the stable foundation of society that those higher up in the hierarchy stand upon. So they are not necessarily unimportant. And though not accepted into higher circles, those in them do not have any disdain for these types of people, there is no reason to since they do not violate any social norms or taboo’s, they simply just do not have enough going for them socially and do not contribute to any interactions.
When it comes to dating, they generally do not do it as they are rejected by women altogether. That is in any chance they have of interacting with one, which are rare because generally they are invisible to women and not noticed by them at all. They rarely mate, but if they do it is with other delta females or lower status females since even most delta females are attempting to mate with lower status beta males. They have very few sexual partners in their life, and when they do mate with a female they will usually attempt to pair bond with her due to lack of other options. Oftentimes a delta male and delta female will get married to each other after only having one or two other sex partners, if that, and then stay pair bonded for the rest of their lives and produce offspring, for which they make the most stable families since they are pair bonded for life (like penguins, which they resemble in other ways as well).
Professionally delta males are all other types of low to mid level employees across all fields, from cashiers and clerks, to factory workers and tradesmen, to low level office workers such as receptionists and assistants, or accountants, etc. They are most well suited for corporate jobs, because of their “group think” mentality, and their ability to thrive on taking orders blindly. They can generally do any type of average low level work well and make reliable employees because they function like well programmed robots. Thus they can stay in one career for very lengthy periods of time, and usually do, because there is never any reason to terminate them, in fact they probably don’t even ask for raises and promotions. They simply do all of their work day in and day out like clock-work, who would want to fire them? Though they lack ambition and drive and will generally not excel in their career enough to get promoted and rise through the ranks of the company unless it is done over extremely extensive periods of time (decades) and due largely to seniority, which can and does happen at times, especially in large corporations that value seniority. They can even spend their entire lifetime being in the same exactly career and have no social mobility and will always be delta males, but at least they will usually retire with a pension to show for it, and that is certainly not bad at all. In fact many other types do not get to retire with the kind of financial security and comfort that the Delta male ends up with, so think about that before looking down on this one’s mundane worker bee existence.
Gamma Male – The Socially Deviant, Rebels, Hipsters
These are the nonconformists and rebels who do not understand social norms and rules and so they are either unable or unwilling to conform to them, and rather reject them and rebel against them instead. They are the alternative types, hipsters, artists, adventurers, and other radicals and extremists who are not suited for leading a normal lifestyle. As a result of this nature they are rejected by all Alpha, beta and delta males and because they are so far outside of the social norm are considered “crazy” by most people in society who accept those standards. They are generally more on the socially extroverted side, though they may also be introverted as well. However, being as how these types are rebels, they have a radical nature, and with that comes confidence and energy, as well as a sense of challenge and adventure. They are the most complex of all the social personality types, and thus there is more to be said about them (except for Sigma’s). Gammas may think that they are sigmas but they are not because sigma’s are not social rejects who do not understand the social ways of society, but gammas are.
They live different, more extreme lives than most people. And thus they tend to stand up for themselves and take on challenges. So they will still attempt to compete with others in the social hierarchy, though they will lose in most situations where the outcome is based largely on popularity, however in other circumstances they can very well succeed, and so they are not total losers (just for the most part). The reason why they are not more socially successful is due to the fact that their deviant nature can often come from personality disorders. Such as them being narcissists, psychopaths, having bipolar disorder or some other personality disorder or mental health condition. These conditions can cause them to be extremely confident and audacious at times, which can inspire them to rise to certain challenges, and once in a while succeed at them, but not usually. This nature leads them to be very adventurous radical people who can lead extreme lifestyles which may seem cool to others at first. But once you get to know them you will find that they are too disagreeable and deviant ever be socially successful.
They are also the social type that has the most negative traits than any other, even the ones below them on the hierarchy. They can tend to be arrogant, lack responsibility, are emotional, and are manipulative and argumentative and difficult to get along with (or even have a conversation with, as it will be one sided). They are egotistical, self entitled, uncompromising and confrontational. Most all criminals fit into this type. The only instance in which they can belong to a social group is with other deviants, such as an alternative group, or a gang.
And they generally are unsuccessful with women (except other gammas, who they also won’t automatically be successful with since they are also hard to deal with). When it comes to mating these types may have wild sexual escapades and multiple sex partners of the same or lower status, but generally do not pair bond since they do not have the healthy social skills to be suited for relationships. They may at times attempt pair bonding but will almost always fail. When they create offspring they will not have stable families and are not responsible parents.
Professionally gamma males are generally creative and artistic types who are artists, musicians, actors, authors, marketers, or people in alternative types of fields such as spirituality or crime, or they may be into extreme sports, travel, or anything having to do with sex or drugs. However in many cases may be unemployed for long periods of time, and prone to ending up homeless. Though if they can find success and cultivate enough social intelligence this type may actually be able to rise up to sigma male status.
Omega Male – Social Outcasts, Geeks & Nerds
These are the dorky & geeky types of guys who are complete and total social outcasts and losers. They are socially introverted and don’t have any social skills what so ever, and oftentimes neglect their appearance totally as well. And thus due to both their behavior and appearance they are not accepted by anyone else socially except other omegas. They are not comfortable in any social situation and will behave awkwardly, except with other omegas, so they tend to avoid attempting to socialize with people outside of their group unless they have to. Thus they are seen as complete losers by everyone, and they have accepted that, and do not even try to change it or challenge the social order and hierarchy, but have willfully taken their place at the bottom of it. Any groups of social outliers who constantly get rejected by other groups will belong to this group, even if they think they may be Gamma’s or Sigma’s.
Omegas may be unsuccessful in many other aspects of life in society, though they may be very intelligent/intellectual, especially in some specialized way, which can lead them to be highly successful in those areas. These types can tend to be very nerdy and will generally have some area(s) of expertise that they may be able to become very successful at, even more successful than most alpha males, which can even lead them to become sigma’s. Though this is not the rule, and even when they are successful in business it does not necessarily turn them into general alpha males or sigma males, except perhaps in their immediate business environment if they become promoted to a high rank and achieve status there, but this status will usually stay isolated to that situation rather than becoming their general social status and place on the social hierarchy in society. Though every group does have its “alpha” leader and thus any group of Omega’s will usually have one as well.
They are seen as unattractive by women and may spend their entire lives as virgins unless they pay for sex, or in the rare case that they may be able to mate with an omega female, though omega females are rare and generally even they try to mate up the hierarchy. So generally these types do not mate except in rare instances in which they have pair-bonded with another omega-female in their group over time, or in which they become the “alpha” of a certain group or environment and thus they become more attractive to certain women of that group. When this does happen they most often will pair bond permanently and get married, and if they have offspring they will have a stable family.
Professionally Omega males are scientists, doctors, researchers, technicians or in technology in some way, gamers, authors, entrepreneurs (especially in the tech industry), college professors, or anything nerdy. Once they have found their niche they can be very successful in it, which, paired with the right social intelligence may cause them to rise up to Sigma male status. So ironically the same types of people who are unemployed gamers living in their parents basement at the age of 30 getting absorbed into the fantasy world of gaming are also the types who become software engineers and rocket scientists who end up being the most successful, famous and richest men in the world – they are both Omega types socially. They have the highest potential for social mobility next to females (which we will talk about later), but they use this potential even less than females do, as most of them simply do not wish to put in any effort into socializing and being socially mobile. However due to this, if an omega male ever loses his social circle he is in danger of becoming a zeta male even though he may not want to be one, it is simply what happens if he isn’t willing to become more socially outgoing. However with social intelligence, skill and drive for success an omega male can easily rise to sigma male status, as I have done steadily throughout my life ever since my childhood as an omega male type.
Zeta Males – Anti-Social Types, Loners, & Outliers
These are the types of guys who are not just introverted, but they take it to the extreme of being anti-social. They strive to minimize their socializing and not to be a part of any social hierarchy, even if it means not having much of a social life at all. They simply do not enjoy socializing with others, at least most people, they may have a few friends who they can tolerate or enjoy the company of. But generally speaking they do not enjoy being social or having a social life. This is not due to them being outcasts or losers and having no social skills, that can be the case but it is rare. Actually it is the fact that these people are “above” most other people in character that they do not wish to associate with most laypeople. These types are actually highly socially intelligent and wise people. They are able to see through all of the social games people play, and feel as though they are too mature for these things. They understand the social hierarchy and order and rules and norms, and have rejected them entirely in order to exist outside of them, alone. They do not try to challenge or compete with alpha males or anyone else. They do not try to challenge social rules and norms, except in rejecting them. They may be successful in business because they usually have to have a high level of intelligence in order to be so independent and do everything alone. But they will generally work alone, as they do not work well with others, at least in large amounts, though they can certainly do so in smaller amounts, so these people are not complete recluses and can keep good jobs at good companies. In fact oftentimes they are the best employees next to the delta males, because they tend to want to just be left alone to do their work, and when they are left alone they will get it done fast and well, requiring little to no support from any other staff members (what more could an employer want?). And except for those they have to talk to at work or wherever they go, they will choose to minimize their interactions with other people.
From one perspective they are at the bottom of the social hierarchy, since they have forfeited in the social competition that is basically our large scale tournament to see who will get to the top, and so in that sense they have lost and are at the bottom. But from another perspective, since they have opted out of the social hierarchy, they exist outside of it and its vertical placement system. Especially considering that they are not actually “losers” and “outcasts” such as Omega males. Do not make the mistake of thinking of them as a loser, for they are not. They are exceptionally strong and intelligent individuals, as these are requirements for being able to live a completely independent lifestyle from everyone else. And these types may actually have very cool personalities as well. And when paired with the fact that people feel an instinctive impulse to seek the approval of those who reject them, beta males certainly seem like interesting people that others do wish to be around. So in a sense by rejecting all of society zeta males have at least exercised one social maneuver that puts them above others. And they could potentially win at the popularity contests of society if they chose to be a part of them. But they do not, so they obviously do not win. And because they are outliers they may think that they are sigma males, but they are not. For Sigma males are still social animals who chose to have a social life and can engage in and win social competitions, they simply do not exist in only one social hierarchy, but between them. Whereas the zeta male avoid social competitions and everything social altogether, and if they were to have to compete socially they would probably lose in most cases because they are just not competitive or social in nature, they just do not have the motivation or moral when it comes to social game playing. One only becomes a sigma male when one actually wins social competitions and achieves social mobility. Zeta males do not have social mobility because they do not engage in social activity. So whether you see them as at the bottom or to the side of the social totem pole, or both, that is where they belong and that is generally where they will stay, especially since many of them are retired sigma males and alpha males who have gotten tired of all the competition and just want to relax with some “me time”.
When it comes to mating, they simply do not do it, at all, ever. They will spend most of their lives celibate, by choice, and try to avoid the opposite sex altogether, because they do not wish to play “the dating game” and do not enjoy courtship, or any of the games that come with male/female relations. If they do ever have sex it will usually be either before they become fully zeta, or will be on a special occasion and usually with a prostitute so that they can avoid any social game playing. So they do not mate, pair bond, marry or have offspring, and in any rare case that they may accidentally produce an offspring, perhaps right before accepting that they are zeta males, they will be absent from its life. But generally speaking zeta males do not have a sex life. Because of the fact that sex is perhaps the most ultimate and intimate social activity, in opting out of being social, they are opting out of being sexual, and they are find with that. Most of them are old enough that their libido has waned past the point of having sex be any kind of priority again, and are well past the age that they would be considering procreating. And the younger zeta males are just simply not the types who would ever be interested in female companionship or children, and are fine with visiting a prostitute once in a blue moon.
Professionally these types of men will oftentimes be self-employed, entrepreneurs, work from home, creative types, or digital nomads, or will work in a company in which they are not part of a team and can do most of their work alone and minimize interactions with others down to quick clear cut professional transactions (which are usually the most conducive to work anyways, a reason why bosses like these types). They will live and do everything alone that they possibly can, and are generally the only types who will live “off grid”, though they are not all mountain men (those are even more rare than sigma males are), and have no problem associating with others and simply keeping them at arm’s length, which is what most of them do these days in order to lead a successful lifestyle. Since zeta males are most often self-employed, these days they are most often the types to have internet based jobs by running websites/blogs, or being day traders, etc. Or they can be authors or artists, or do certain types of secluded office work, or be an independent contractor or handy worker, or do odd jobs and temp work, though because of their lack of interest in working with other and having people skills, may in some instances find themselves unemployed and even homeless, though usually they will at least have what it takes to get by in society and prevent it from coming to that. Though they have no social mobility and will always and forever be a zeta male because that is the way they want it.
Females – Social Chameleons
Females are the social chameleons. They do not have separate personality types from men. Rather, they can appear in any of the categories listed. But they generally exist mainly within the Beta and delta categories and are more rare in the other more polarized ones, and the more polarized the categories, the more rare female members become. Each of the other categories group will have some female members, but very few. Generally in the polarized categories that are closer to the middle (Alpha, Gamma and Omega) there will be a small female to male ratio, if there are any at all females at all, which sometimes there aren’t. There do tend to be more Gamma females than Alpha females, because each group can only have one alpha female otherwise the alpha females would compete and only one would win and the others would become betas. However Gamma females can congregate together and form their own gamma pack. But when it comes to the farther poles of Sigma, Omega and Zeta, females become an extremely rare item (though they do exist, IE: supermodels & nuns). But women are generally not dominant social personality types and thus do not tend to play dominant social roles in society, but more passive or submissive/subordinate ones, & they are built for the “group think” mentality, which is why they tend to primarily subsist in the more central beta & delta categories. Most women attempt to be beta females who congregate around alpha males (and perhaps a lone alpha female), and compete with each other to attempt to gain status and mate with the alpha male, without necessarily aspiring to become the alpha female of the group, since most women do not have a desire for social leadership roles.
Women’s social status, social life, and social skills are largely geared towards social manipulation for the purpose of mating with the highest value male possible. In fact, 80% of women in society are competing with each other for the top 20% of men (yes that means that 80% of women are Sigma, Alpha, Beta, and Delta females, only 20% fall below that). However, in this 80% of females attempting to mate with the alpha males of their chosen groups, the alpha males will generally only mate with approximately the top 40% of females (under normal circumstances and are not drunk or desperate). So about 60% of women will be rejected from the start, and may continue to attempt to compete with other women for the alpha males for a while but will eventually have to find a beta male or lower to mate with. Or they will succeed in mating with the alpha male, and will compete with other female in order to continue mating with him, and attempt to pair bond with him, which most women will be unsuccessful at, and will eventually be rejected by the alpha male after a time of mating (due to loss of novelty, or her losing her looks, or losing the social competition with other women, etc.), and will have to settle for a beta male provider if she wishes to successfully pair-bond with a man and have offspring.
It is most women’s goal in life to marry a high status man and thus become higher status herself, at which point she can nest and amass resources (taken from him) and build a family. Even in the advent of feminism and “career women”, most women still share this goal and women who do not are exceptions. Especially since a woman who does not procreate is then without lineage to pass on her values to, and so it is family values that are the ones that get passed down generation to generation, and most girls are taught family values by their mothers and thus they go on to be suited for motherhood. And even women who are career oriented types for the first half of their adult life will eventually chose to become mothers as they become older before it gets too late. And they will almost always chose a mate based on his status. The higher his status, the more attractive he is to her, because of his ability to provide resources for her and her young.
So because they are natures designated child bearers women’s primary occupation is not their career, but courtship. And they are hypergamous which means that they generally do not mate with those who are of the same social class/status, or at least they do not try to, and will compete with other females in order to be able to mate with men who are higher than them in the social hierarchy. They will only settle for someone who is of relatively equal status after some time of failing to pair bond with a higher status alpha male of their chosen group or hierarchy, and even then, though the male they settle for may be closer to her socially she will still be “dating up” in some way (such as a low status beta-female dating another beta male of her group who is of measurably higher status, in that he makes at least somewhat significantly more money than her, and is noticeably better looking than her too).
So by this model alpha female’s mate with the highest status alpha males, and sigma males. Beta females mate with alpha males, sigma males, and when they cannot do so with them, then the highest status beta males. Delta females mate with the highest status delta males, beta males, and perhaps once in a while a low status alpha male or sigma male if for some reason he doesn’t have any other options at the time. Gamma females mate with the highest status gamma males, and perhaps some low status alpha males, but generally will avoid delta and beta males (because gammas are non-conformists and deltas and betas are conformists), however in many cases they may be able to find some sigma males who appreciate her outspoken alternative style and ways. And omega females mate with the highest Omegas, Gamma, and Delta males, though they may in some cases shoot for the lowest status Beta males, and even get one from time to time. And of course zeta females do not mate at all with anyone, no matter how high status the man is.
Through this hypergamous mating strategy females are capable of moving up the social hierarchy in “social climbing” from one social group to another, and can socially adapt like a chameleon and over time change not only their social class, but behaviors and personality type as well, which is much more difficult for men to do, but comes to women naturally because they are neurologically wired for it. So for instance: a strong Omega female such as a nerdy girl who recently graduated with good grades and has a bright future but who only has her nerdy group of friends she would study with, and who wants to succeed socially as well as academically/professionally, may do so by seducing a beta male and beginning to date him and becoming a beta female of his group. Then she will begin competing with the females in his group for status as the alpha female, and in the process her status in the group will slowly but surely rise over time. Eventually after exhibiting her strength and competitive edge to the Alpha male he will show her favor and she will start seducing and courting him. If she can keep her competitive edge over the alpha female, she will be able to begin mating with him and then can become an alpha female of that group. After not pair bonding with the alpha male of that group and growing accustomed to her “Alpha Female” status, she will eventually seduce and mate with a sigma male she has noticed traversing their social environment. This sigma was her ultimate goal all along, who she will then attempt to pair bond with. And as she does pair bond he will help her to change social environments and hierarchy’s altogether to another even higher one in which she will have even higher status than before. She may have started out somewhere average like Cincinnati, but now she is living the high life in the upper west side of Manhattan where she can really flourish, with the choice between many bigger better career opportunities than she had ever had available to her, or simply relying upon him providing for her. This is an ideal scenario for not only her, but her future offspring that her hypergamy is also meant to provide a future for. And thus this is how it is accomplished.
However with this mating strategy since women are always trying to mate and pair bond with men who are above them and their superiors, the men they set their sights on are oftentimes “out of their league” (the official phrase for someone being one too many classes above you), and thus they are doomed to fail to get the men they want most ultimately. Therein they will either have to settle for an equal or exhaust their efforts in the social competition and end up losing their status and becoming delta-females, often with offspring that they must raise alone or find a lower status provider male for, even if they do not really favor him. When a female mates it is generally her ultimate goal to pair bond with the man and produce offspring. And when she produces offspring it becomes her life purpose to provide and care for her young, and to gain her mates support in providing and caring for her and her young. Which is why most females end up pair bonding with beta male providers, since they are the best suited for that, and they can produce stable families with them, and also are of relatively high (enough) status.
But it is the propensity of the female social animal to always attempt to pair bond with the alpha male or sigma male first. And thus in many instances she is left with offspring from this since women often use mating and reproduction as part of a pair bonding effort, but this does not usually actually cause pair bonding in alpha males and sigma males, but only in beta and lower, so single mothers left with offspring from alpha & sigma males must then go seek out beta male providers who will provide for her and her offspring in exchange for mating rights with her, which is more difficult to do with another males offspring, and if this woman does not have enough marketplace value she can end up failing to maintain her place in her social hierarchy as all of her efforts go towards trying to provide for her children, and she will drop to the bottom of it and become a Omega or even Zeta female, as many divorced single mothers in their 40’s tend to do.
Females professionally are most suited for the same types of jobs as beta males and delta males, or the jobs of whatever category they are in, with the exclusion of labor intensive jobs and the tech industry, and favoring social work & care-giving roles, such as counseling, nursing, teaching or daycare providing. They can succeed in business when adapting more masculine traits, but usually do not ascend too high on the corporate ladder or end up in leadership positions, and will usually have opted out of the work force before the age of 40 in order to focus on child rearing.
Females have the most social mobility and opportunities for social climbing, but they possess the least amount of social responsibility, which is why most of them never live up to their full potential. Though due to social welfare and support afforded to women in modern society most of them never fall too low on the social hierarchy and will never end up homeless, and when unemployed they tend to get taken care of by others. But therein lies their problem, that they are so dependent upon others, especially men. Hence women tend to always stay within the center of the social hierarchy between beta and delta level for their entire lives despite their high level of social mobility and the ability for most any of them to become the fabled “Sigma Female” with the right amount of effort.
Conclusion – On Social Mobility & Climbing
Among western nations, the social hierarchy is not a concrete class or caste system that you are born into and set in for life like those found in Islamic nations. Here in the free world, we have what is called social mobility, which means that if you find yourself in a certain class or place or role in society you have the option to change that if you wish to. So even if you start as a very low status person at the bottom of the hierarchy in your social environment, through cultivating social intelligence and skills, having the right drive and putting in the right amount of effort, you can become socially successful and rise through the ranks until you get to the very top at Alpha or Sigma status. We live in a world where you get to decide the role you play in your social environment and through cultivating the right expertise you can become successful in any way you want, and doing so socially is even easier than doing so professionally (and doing so professionally will help you do it socially as well). Changing your behavior is a simple matter of will power. And once you change your behavior, you can change your social style, and that will change your social life and thus then your social status. And the more socially successful you become, the more successful you will become in life in general, which is why social climbing, status and popularity are so sought after. Those who achieve high status can have all the success in the world, and even become rich and famous (at least in your immediate social environment). The only reason people generally do not do so is due to lack of trying, because of the sheer laziness that the modern world of comfort and social services such as welfare affords us. So most people tend to get stuck in a comfort zone of living at a base level when they could be living the high life of prosperity if they would just go for it.
So even a gamma or omega can become a sigma male, as I have done. All it requires is for one to cultivate social intelligence, skill, a drive for success and then lots of networking. Then someone who starts out at the bottom of the hierarchy as an omega or gamma male can easily and rapidly rise to alpha or sigma status in your chosen social environment & hierarchy (even if you have to chose a new one). I know this for a fact because I am living proof of it, as this is exactly what I have done throughout my life, starting at omega status when I was an adolescent, and ascending to gamma as an early teen, then jumping up to become a beta of the popular high status groups in my environment/hierarchy in my mid teens, then going to alpha male status and achieving a higher place in these groups in my late teens, then achieving sigma as an adult and remaining there traversing the tops of various hierarchies in different social environments all over the world as an adult. In this journey I have gone from being constantly publicly ridiculed to being extremely popular and supplicated to by others as a high status leader and authority. And not only that, but I have gone from living in poverty to being extremely successful and having the freedom to do whatever I want with myself, travelling the world going on adventures and living the life of my wildest dreams and fantasies. And due to my social mobility not only up one social hierarchy but also across various others, I have been able to network and form affiliations and friendships with many of the most high value/status leaders in my chosen fields/industries and communities. And I have also been able to select, date and mate with some of the most attractive, valuable, choicest mates from various social environments and hierarchies, including models, high status business women, women in the film industry, porno-models, and even a big celebrity.
I was able to do this because of my interest and studies in social science which I have been conducting for over 15 years, and my large amounts of social work and networking. However these are the types of things that most people never do, even most alpha males, simply because they lack the networking skills and social intelligence necessary, because of the fact that they do not understand social science. But if you have a will to succeed and social climb so that you can become high status and achieve the social, business, & love life of your dreams, you can!
