2.) The dominant male.
3.)The main source of population.
*Wolves mate for life*
In a modern/human sense, younger males (teens, early 20s) will subscribe to the classical form. Like a lion, they will often be the strongest, most intimidating, hit on all of the women beta males want, are usually the first to have new sexual experiences and often dominate a set territory in thier 'hunt' for new women, such as local nightclub scenes.
Older alpha males, however, will evolve the classical traits of stength, intimidation and dominance beyond the physical by gaining power over men through thier very means of living and professional reputation. A powerful business executive, for example, will hire, promote, demote and fire others according to how well they serve his own interests. Rock stars, famous actors and other individuals of 'power' hold very simular capabilities over others in thier respective professions.
Younger alpha males who cannot mature into the modern form will usually cling to the classical form of alpha-maleness for as long as possible.
Aspects of a human alpha male: a) ability to protect oneself (rarely senselessly endangering oneself) b) leading others c) being a successful speaker that can persuade people with his logic d) not being afraid of confrontations such as arguments e) high social intelligence f) very high work ethic and drive to succeed; a strong desire to produce, earn, and excel (debunking the theory of the playboy who's mildly retarded with no skills and work ethic) g) a strong desire to shape one's environment rather than be shaped by it. This often means being direct about your desires, intentions, and needs with the opposite sex. h) being the exact opposite of a loser (a failure monetarily and socially) i) promoting survival and good genetics while refraining from jealousy, passive aggressive SWPL and IBS tactics
The vast majority of men are very indirect about their desires sexually. Many women who date so-called alpha males are essentially completely unskilled in the field of fellatio, demonstrating that they were really dating passive beta males. The common belief that all attractive women exclusively date alpha males is patently false; all attractive women would be world class in all sexual endeavors if that was the case.
Guy 1: Why are so many self-proclaimed alpha males so bitter, angry, and dogmatic? Guy 2: An alpha male does not let his emotions overcome him and only believes things if he has crystal clear evidence to do so. The emotional nature and dismissive attitudes of most people online dismiss them from being alphas. Guy 1: Men who passive aggressively belittle other people in an attempt to one-up them are often mistaken for alpha males. Unfortunately, this is social proof failing their deceptive façade.
Guy 1: Why isn't physical dominance #1 in being an alpha? Guy 2: picking fights often is a sign of hostility, higher stress levels and causes a lower life expectancy. Surviving and passing on genes is the most alpha possible thing and not surviving for very long is as beta as possible. Overtly aggressive men rarely command the respect of their peers.
Guy 1: Why do most alpha males have penis sizes that are only slightly above average? Guy 2: Because most people are close to the average, and being genetically lucky to cause FCE often doesn't lead to much personal development.
