If you have got any spark of life in you, you must have looked around by now and wondered how it all works. Humans are social creatures and we have formed this strange unspoken language that we are all meant to instantly comprehend. The impossible part is that this social language changes over time and location and seems to make some people’s lives a breeze while the majority of us struggle like all hell. I am going to do my best to answer your question “What are the personality types?”, if you can understand them I am sure a whole new world will become clear to you about your relationships and more importantly about yourself. Be careful though it may get ugly. This is stuff every young person should know leaving high school.
I have done several psychological and psychometric tests over the years as I am sure you have too. They are all interesting but they I think those test were all created by lonely scientists wearing lab coats and somehow thinking these test will make them more popular.
The personality types I want to present below were originally developed by ethologists (which is the study of animals social habits), I find it a lot more practical and certain more understandable.
These personality types have been majorly bastardized and added to over the years by the PUA community (and others) so you will find plenty of different versions online. Here is my personal interpretation of it all.
Relevant stereotype – James Bond or Jason Bourne
The Sigma male is the outsider or lone wolf who doesn’t care for the rules of society and doesn’t play by them (unless it suits his objectives) but still seems to win the popularity game without trying. He doesn’t seek approval from anyone which makes him the master of his own destiny.
Sometimes referred to as manipulative mastermind they understand a bigger picture of the social construct that no one else does and use this knowledge to their own benefit. These men float in and out of all social circles at will and date the type of top tier women that most alphas have never even seen.
The Sigma man is successful with women but doesn’t put any value in this success.
This personality type (Sigma) actually at the top of the social hierarchy because they are the only ones that can manipulate the alphas (by not acknowledging the alpha’s dominance).
You will find them highly focused on their own objectives and are the ultimate diplomats but still quite capable of handling themselves in any situation, violent or otherwise.
Relevant stereotype – Good looking rich Bad-boy that is the most popular with the group ( football captain)
The Alpha males are the dominant males to the majority of people within the social hierarchy. Their traits are that they are very popular, extremely social and put a very high value on social acceptance and social dominance. They love being the center of attention and come with a very high social status. Alphas are extroverts and don’t mind making fun of men below them in the social hierarchy (f it gains him more social acceptance). An alpha man is a slave to his social dominance.
External appearances are extremely important. They can be shallow at times.
Successful in their business ventures or jobs usually due to the social status and conformity.
You see them jump at every chance to take risk when enough people are there to appreciate it.
The top tier women are easily attracted to alpha men.
Relevant stereotype – all the other members of the football team not the alpha.
The Beta male travels in the same social circles as the alpha but is one step down the social ladder. Think of him as a side-kick to the alphas. Beta’s still put effort into their external appearance and carry a lot of social status but they are close enough to the alpha to know what they are missing out on and can never get. They lack self-confidence and are submissive to the alpha males and top 2 tiers of women. They put a very high value on social inclusion and conformity.
The Beta male will avoid risks, will relish the provider role (to females and to alpha males). These type of men put a very high important on their acceptance from a woman. Beta men are born followers but loyal.
They are comfortable with women and will regularly try to hit on the top tier women and feel inferior to them if they ever land one. They will typically end up with the 2nd tier women and fall in line to a follower role.
Relevant stereotype – the regular Joe’s. The Nice Guys who get dumped for the bad boys.
The Delta male is one rung down the social ladder from a Beta but not part of the same social circles (he wants to be). They don’t understand the social construct and don’t know how to play the game. The Delta fails to realize he is not a Beta, hence he is given very little social status by the alpha/beta women.
A Delta may still be good-looking and quite capable on the sporting field but doesn’t meet the social expectations required to make it into the alpha/beta social circle.
Not as much value on his external appearance will present as that placed by the alpha & betas.
Women largely see Delta’s as invisible which will make him quite uncomfortable approaching women until he comes to expect rejection from them.
All women will be treated with a great amount of respect and awe and places all women on pedestals. He will regularly White Knight to protect them at his own expense and find women mysterious, confusing and intimidating. Landing a woman will take some time for our delta man but when he does, (which he will) he will sacrifice everything to keep her from leaving him and probably put far too much self-worth into the relationship.
The top tier and the second tier women are out of reach for the delta man.
These men are the worker drones of industry, they are the tax payers that keep the entire cogs of the nation running.
Relevant stereotype – the successful conman, social justice warrior, narcissist, violent offender.
The Gamma males are a bit confused by the whole social structure and struggle to understand it. They will not be part of the same social circles as the alpha and beta. They avoid the pack mentality and don’t conform to the social rules.
Gammas are overly self-confident to the point that they are inflexible and hate being wrong or are uncomfortable in a good solid two-way conversation. This can make them argumentative and defensive if ever caught out saying something wrong. They have no sense of self-ownership, arrogant and will not accept someone else’s opinions/facts. Their problems are always someone else’s fault, not theirs
They are manipulative at the expense of others and overly emotional. Short fuse.
Gammas have an unwarranted sense of entitlement, are set in their ways and refuse to compromise. They are egotistical and confrontational.
Mildly successful with women but largely invisible to them.
Gammas often think they are sigma but often forget sigmas are not social rejects like the gammas are.
Relevant stereotype – Geek video game enthusiast, no social life, no love life. Sheldon.
The Omega male is the polar opposite to an alpha male. They are typically loners They are social rejects from every social circle but their own geek circle. They are shunned by society as they don’t have the social skills or the external appearance to conform into most social circles. He will have no physical attributes and may tend to be uncoordinated and put little effort into outward appearances.
Determined and successful outside of the social hierarchy because they may have superior logical or technical skills. May be extremely successful in their IT jobs or similar technical field.
Generally not successful with women at all because they have nothing a woman wants and don’t understand why.
Relevant stereotype – red pill MGTOW
The Zeta male is again a lone-wolf who walks his own path which is normally away from the social pyramid conformists. He fully understands the social hierarchy and the social rules but rejects them as childish games. They can see through the social construct and believe it serves only as a means of control and segregate.
These men are celibate by choice and doesn’t see that any value can be gained from playing a woman’s social games. Usually these men are old enough to master their biological urges or have been in enough bad relationships to want to break free of them.
Success is very common in his business choices and jobs .
He puts a very high value on self ownership and self-improvement.
Relevant stereotype – purple pill MGTOW or pick-up artist (PUA)
A Zeta male who isn’t old enough to overcome him biological urges towards women. He will understand female nature and dates women just long enough to pump and dump them. Will travel in the social circle as a covert Beta and keep his personal philosophy about women under wraps.
What’s it all mean?
If you are trying to work out which type of man you are don’t waste your time. Your position in the social hierarchy is not determined by you, it is determined by the alpha and beta women.
These social castes are generally formed early on in the teenage years and can be hard to break free from. Every alpha and beta will degenerate down the ladder as they get older if they don’t put any effort into their inner selves.
The good news for delta, gammas & omegas is that it is possible to climb the social ladder as you get older if you are willing to understand and then conform to the alpha/beta women’s wishes for money, social status and external appearance.
