Rant-Time: Fake ‘Alphas’

I apologize in advance for the generally egotistical tone of this article but it is very difficult to treat this subject matter thoroughly without pointing out some very harsh realities…These days in the seedy underbelly of the internet, there has sprung up a disturbing cult of ‘manliness’, picture an inspirational seminar full of desperate, pitiful men slapping themselves on the back, trying to pretend that a few tricks and tips can turn their lives around and make them superheroes among their peers and finally get them laid. They can be easily spotted by their obsession with how their actions are perceived by others, if you show any slight weakness of character(like compassion) you are a beta, or a cuck…

Google ‘how to be an alpha-male’ for a taste of this particular brand of insanity. There is however clearly one glaring problem with this cult: no amount of posturing, body modification, wardrobe, or social engineering can make you an alpha…You are born an alpha, it is who you are, and it’s something that few people can define but most everybody can recognize when they see it…

A few days ago I happened across a simple question on a BDSM message board. A new aspiring dom asked plainly what sorts of qualities subs look for in a dom. The first response was actually fairly enlightening; you need to be able to ‘sell it’. It’s so simple but also so true. There is a very fine line between being a jerk and being a dom and that difference is all in the eye of the beholder. An alpha commands respect and submission not through the mere issuing of commands, but in the very gravity they exude. The ugly truth is not just subs, but women in general desire the alpha, but they are in reality exceedingly rare…

People toss around the word alpha as if it is a quality that can be attained by anyone, but the fact is the true alphas are literally running the world, unless you associate in some rather rarefied circles you will likely not meet any of these people in real life. But hey just for fun, I am going to describe myself as an alpha and you can decide for yourself if have the ability to ‘sell it’ or if you are just being sold a bill of goods from some fake-alpha gurus…

I happened to have been born with solidly above average attributes across the board. Taken in isolation, being tall, handsome, slender, or intelligent isn’t enough to qualify as truly alpha, but when taken as a whole, it has provided me with all the tools to dominate pretty much whatever I choose to. I’m not a perfect ten, just a solid nine-point-something. I may sound full of myself, but the truest indication of an alpha is being possessed of supreme self confidence…

The difference between a narcissist and a truly confident person is also a very fine line. The narcissists confidence is an illusion, they require outside validation of their self-worth because unlike the alpha they don’t have true self-esteem. The alpha has confidence because they know with absolute certainty that they are the alpha, they have no need for outside validation, although they will constantly receive it…

There are some seriously outdated notions of what being an alpha male means in our society. Some think it is the man with the giant biceps and chiseled abs of a Mr. Universe, the reality is those men who pack themselves into gyms to attain those bodies are generally compensating for some weakness in other areas. They have to go out of their way to attract attention because they are lacking some sort of other tool…

It may be unfair, but I was literally just gifted a six-pack, I don’t need to devote hours per day to maintaining an attractive physique. In an effort to avoid wasted resources I literally do not build muscle I have no practical need for. I have developed my body specifically to my needs, slow-twitch endurance muscles are what I build so I can better perform in the bedroom. The rest is just window-dressing…

I don’t need any help at all attracting attention, throughout my life I have always be able to turn heads. I’ve always been a ladies’ man, my first girlfriend was at the age of 5, and since then there hasn’t been a single calendar year in which I’ve not been in some sort of long-term relationship. I have had enough girls and women remark matter-of-factly, about my hotness or sexiness that I tend to reply with random jerk answers like ‘I know’ out of frustration. Oddly enough however as I’ve aged I’ve only acquired a more broad appeal as the white hair in my beard marks me as fair game for older women. I wear noise cancelling headphones out in public just to avoid the constant advances of females of all ages. It’s a burden to be honest, when you are just trying to be in a committed marriage and go about your daily business of being a good Daddy. It’s not just about looks though, some are attracted to my intellect, some are drawn to my confidence, it’s about the whole package…

Alphas have a certain swagger about them, but it’s because they are sure that they are the alpha. Many will attempt to suborn this swagger for it’s affect, but it’s hard to carry off genuinely. Alphas don’t need to fake anything, it is their authenticity that commands admiration, it is literally just them being who they are that makes them alpha. It is not something a seminar can teach you…

I would have expected to have met quite a few more alphas than I did in the world of international investment banking, although there were a few, one Wall St. director even confessed to me his preference for hiring betas because it all comes too easy to alphas and they can’t be dominated. Of course he eventually fired me for these same reasons.

There is an old saying on the streets that “game recognizes game” and it’s true in the sense that alphas do spot other real alphas. For example, when I met a teen-aged and largely unknown Drake at a random house-party he was possessed of so much innate charisma that it was clear that he would go on to do big things(like having the record for the most #1 rap hits of all time). Alphas tend to treat each-other with a weary respect, like dangerous animals that bump into one another in the wild. They don’t fight it out instantly because they can’t be sure of the outcome. And any real alpha truly has an ‘I Don’t Give a F—‘ attitude about others until they try to test the alpha. Alphas are about their business, if others want to follow or hate that’s cool because well IDGAF…
