Alpha Male Personality

So what does it mean to have an alpha male personality or traits?

There is actually a reason why I wanted to talk about this.

I was browsing through Youtube videos and came across this one video with a near one million views.

In the video, the guy was trying to explain what it means to be an alpha male…

And there were quite a few things (Actually a lot..) that I disagreed with… so I figured why not write an article about my view of what it means to be an alpha male.

But, before we go any further, I highly encourage you to…

Drop this idea of alpha and beta traits altogether

There’s no person who is always alpha or beta in every circumstance.

For example, a jacked bodybuilder that goes to the gym every day may feel completely alpha and confident when he’s in the gym… but he may feel like an insecure little boy when he’s giving a public speech.

Michael Jordan may feel like an alpha male when he’s playing basketball and dominating everyone on the court… but feel like a little kid when he is struggling against minor league baseball players.

The point is… you can’t simply label someone as alpha or beta as if it’s their entire identity.

It just doesn’t work that way.

And the dude in the video that I watched… was talking as if girls have these radars going off of her head… allowing her to instantly categorize you into either alpha or beta male.

And guess what?

Girls may be slightly better than guys at reading people on average… but there are PLENTY of girls who are socially unaware and very bad at reading social signs from others.

This is especially true in this day and age of social media – where it is getting even more rare to have that face-to-face interaction.

And you see people – both guys and girls – becoming more awkward and socially incompetent as a result of that.

At the end of the day, you should really stop thinking that women have this psychic power to read your mind… and they are judging every one of your behaviors. 

It will just massively stifle you when you interact with her and completely kill your natural vibe.

I previously talked about how someone can be confident or not so confident depending on the circumstance.

But… even under the SAME circumstance, he may be a completely confident dude one day and not so confident the next day.

Have you ever had days when you felt that surge of confidence and felt like you could accomplish anything that you set your mind to?

And you may have also experienced days you don’t even want to look at yourself in the mirror because you hate everything about yourself?

Emotions fluctuate and so does your confidence.

Many guys become obsessed with finding that one quality that is going to turn them into an alpha male.

And there is no such thing.

Let’s list out some of the characteristics that people “think” make someone an alpha male…

And I’ll refute every single one of them.

List of alpha male characteristics..?

1. An alpha male has a deep voice and speaks with conviction.

Let me ask you this. Do you think Elon Musk is more “alpha” than most dudes? How about Steve Jobs?

None of these guys speak with a tone we would consider alpha – at least in a conventional sense.

But I’m sure most people would agree they are a lot more “alpha” than… say a bodybuilder dude who speaks with a deep testosterone filled voice … but has had a zero contribution to this planet earth apart from getting jacked.

2. An alpha male has an impeccable posture.

Think about anyone that’s accomplished anything significant in their lives.

Just come up with your top three greatest human being alive in terms of what they’ve achieved.

Do they all walk with the same posture? Do they all carry themselves the same way?

It is most likely no.

3. An alpha male is strong and jacked.

Think about any president of any country… how many jacked presidents do you see?

4. An alpha male knows how to fight

How many great fighters in UFC do you think would be more than happy to give up their fighting ability to trade their spot with Dana White (The president of UFC)?

5. An alpha male is insanely charismatic.

Once again, it comes down to how we define “charisma”.

But a lot of people who I would truly consider alpha are not exactly charismatic – at least in a conventional way we define charisma.

Don’t get me wrong.

All of the traits that I listed can certainly turn you into a more “attractive” dude if you possess those traits.

But I think it’s important to distinguish between being an “attractive” male and an “alpha” male.

So how exactly would I personally define someone as an alpha male…?

What do I think the most defining characteristic of an alpha male?


This is my very “personal” view on…

What actually makes someone an alpha male

I would define an alpha male as someone…

Who has an unwavering belief in something… and are willing to do whatever it takes within his power… to manifest that belief into reality.

And an alpha male is NOT afraid to sacrifice even his own life if it means standing up for what he truly believes in.

Because THAT, in my opinion, is the epitome of true courage… or alpha traits… whatever you may want to call it.

Knowing that the entire world may turn their back against you… but still willing to stand up for what you believe in.

Here’s the thing…

Without having those values (or beliefs) you are willing to stand up for… you are just another leaf aimlessly drifting with the wind.

And this is also exactly why we consider people who do not give a fuck about others’ opinion… or who are not afraid to speak their mind… as an alpha being.

Because people’s opinion and judgment about you become insignificant – once you realize your values are at the very top of the pyramid above all else.

If you are not working toward what you believe in.

You will be working for what someone else believes in.

There is, unfortunately, no middle ground.

It’s binary.
