it'd be intellectually dishonest to claim otherwise

^^^lol, that made me choke on coffee!

I'm an Omega. It works well apparently, since I've been promoted 4 times in 8 months
Thats pretty much just a nicer alpha though right?


I really have no idea what any of those terms actually imply anymore. It was more a joke than anything.

These things are interesting to look at from an intersocial standpoint, so I dont understand why the question triggered Bamf and HJ's Asperger's so hard. I'm also kind of interested who here actually considers themselves a stereotypical Alpha. Besides Jelly, of course. I'm sure he could actually explain the terms well too, since I'm pretty sure I've seen him throw around the "beta male cuck" line like it actually means something
That’d be fun, having a jelly definition!
I agree though, just thought it was something we might talk about, even the betas like HJ and Bamf.

So what exactly is an alpha male?  I know RIV was joking with this despite Bamf and HJ being triggered due to butt hotdogs or something, but what is it exactly?  Is the alpha the one in charge of everyone?  If that's the case, the boss is always the alpha regardless of any personal qualities he may have.  When I first heard of an alpha, it was from the pickup artists (anyone remember that show on VH1 with the guy with the stupid hat?).  To them, it was basically any dude who got laid all the time but I don't really consider picking up drunk chicks at a bar every night to say anything about a person's character.  Is it the dude who can bench the most?  I've known really big, strong guys who were kind of chumps in every other aspect.

I think being an alpha isnt dependent on your actual job totle or size, so you’re right, imo.

This link has decent fefinitions, and goes into gammas omegas and one i’d never heard of, sigmas.

It seems like every other Greek letter is kinda badass in some way.  But those betas and gammas deserve it when we shove them in lockers.

It is weird that Cap was empowered by beta rays and Hulk was empowered by gamma rays.

So I guess going by those definitions, I'm a weird Omega/Sigma hybrid
