    Alphas Betas Gammas

    Do they exist or is some nonsense PUA’s invented in the 2000’s to sell books?

    My own thoughts are its largely nonsense. But I also said ‘Index funds are for betas’ to a coworker today, because I’m also a hypocrite 😉 and obviously the concept of leadership exists. But generally I consider leadership something you do with people when they’ve stopped being good at doing stuff in their 40’s.

    i didn't realize PUAs sold books, i thought they just sold youtube videos.

    but yeah, PUA nonsense.

      Society is too complex to formally map the idea from the animal world onto humans but there are hierarchical structures within subsets of society where I could see the idea as a useful analogy.

        Break-ups and Divorce are usually high percentage results of a Beta Male in the relationship.



        If there was a Alpha male in the equation, the relationship would immediately end due to possible discovery of mental health issues with the woman.....

        Or

        The connection would blossom to a long term committed healthy monogamous relationship and then evolve into an unbreakable marriage.

                They exist as necessary labels to describe different levels of radiation.

                  If you Google this, all links lead back to some PUA's blog. So I'm deffo leaning towards bullshit

                  Just another way to put people in neat little boxes when people are ever changing and shape shifting and cannot be boxed in!

                    My point in this post/comments alludes to what Meliai said..."Just another way to put people in neat little boxes when people are ever changing and shape shifting and cannot be boxed in!". My response is "Isn't that what the Left does normally?", because I found it interesting she said that, when it seems that is what the Left generally does, and from her past post history I can safely assume that she is talking from a leftist perspective. I was showing the Irony. 😉
                    I am stating that the Left in general, tends to put people in neat little boxes too (Racist, White Supremacist, etc) and I find it ironic that when the subject is switched to defining what types the people are (Alpha, Beta, etc) she made putting people in neat little boxes a bad or questionable thing. Iow, it all depends on the narrative. 👀

                    Amerijuanican dude, seriously? People who randomly bring up politics during a completely unrelated conversation in order to make some point about "the other team" are....definitely putting people into boxes lol. There is no "the left" because the "left" and the "right" are not monoliths made up of people who think exactly the same way. That's not how it works.

                    i tried to google it, and since google always decides i'm trying to search for something similar to but different from what i typed, it decided to autocomplete to "alpha betas", which is a new cartoon that is disappointingly not a revenge of the nerds spinoff, but instead something weird about gamers who were hired by the government for some weird operation.

                    then i changed the search terms to "alpha beta male" and got a top link on why it's a myth, followed by PUA stuff.

                      People like to think in binary form. 2 opposites:

                      Man and woman
                      Good and Evil
                      Black and White
                      Mom and Dad
                      Leftist and Rightist
                      Success and Failure
                      Alpha and Beta

                      and so forth and so on

                      When you see people who are strong minded and successful, with leadership traits, stand up for themselves, they are deemed Alpha. Weak minded, self loathing, miserly people who are submissive and fall behind in life are deemed Betas. This is binary thinking.

                      I think there are men and women who fall into alpha and beta categories. At the same time I don’t think it’s entirely finite. For example, one who is alpha in their love life, but a complete beta in their professional life.

                      so yes. Alphas and betas exist.

                      Guys what is PUA-I have heard the term many times now (only here though) and google didn’t yield much useful info-I found one website that referenced “pick up artists?” Seems like a subset of the incel community, or at least the same types of people. Does that track?

                        They probably exist in the sense that some people find the term a useful way to label a pattern of behavior that they see in others. Are they absolute categories of life people? Nah.

                          *shrug* Talk of alphas, simply put, isn't healthy, and a good leader wouldn't do it. It wounds people emotionally, which creates danger for everyone, even the people you love.

                          Limitless. That is the nature of humanity. Worry is our blight. We cannot fail the next generation with this kind of talk.
