Are you a Sigma male? This relatively new 'character type' has been put forward by Ric (see comments section for last post) as an explanation as to why I (and people like us) think and behave as we do. So how do you know if you are one? A quick online search suggests that you (we, I) are if:
You love being alone but value other people.
You are a silent leader.
You can adapt to different situations.
Treat everybody around you the same way.
Doesn't need a social circle to be yourself.
Understands the importance of silence.
Morally grey (or worse)
Hates living life safely.
Social skills could use some work.
Master of own fate.
Could be an alpha male if wanted.
Hmmm... I started off thinking that, yes, I must be one, but as the 12 points continued found that I disagreed that they were describing me at all. I have highlighted those that I identify with strongly in bold and those that I do not in italic. Those in blue I do not feel strongly one way or another.
Alpha male? No, I'm definitely not.
Beta male? Not that either.
Sigma male? On the above criteria not a whole one, but more Sigma than the other two.
Or maybe it really is just all a load of old b.....
