Of course, making that a reality is still a huge challenge in spite of all the changes. As for the enduring myth of alpha and beta males: Every man is an alpha in his element and a beta out of his element.
Alpha women like to lead, and Beta guys do not mind following. A good Alpha woman/Beta man partnership can benefit both partners if they respect each other. There are plenty of super macho, bad boys that are unemployed losers and then there are many so called beta males running the show and pulling in the bucks... I'm what you would call a beta -- (However, I am a degreed professional and I make very good money) I am a good father and faithful attentive husband.
In the extremes of both, an Alpha may be too confrontational; a Beta may be too passive.
But what do women and men really feel about the non-macho male?
Far more important is the degree of each that you have in your personality.
You may be a Beta, with anywhere from a handful to a big helping of Alpha, or an Alpha with strong to middling Beta tendencies, or an extreme Alpha, with practically no Beta at all.
You may be pretty much a hybrid, with equal amounts of both.
I’m betting that you’ve got some Alpha no matter who you are.Beta males are—or can be—the best lovers because they want to get off too.
