The Alpha personality type goes to the people who are strong, ambitious, and majestic and intimidating at the same time. They aim high and aim to succeed. If you have an Alpha personality, you will know that this is not flattery, but rather the reality you always prefer.
And if you are unsure if you have what it takes to be called an Alpha male or female, here are 10 things that show just what it means to be an Alpha personality.
1. Talk straightforward and to the point
As an alpha, you don’t waste time, words or effort trying to get your point across — you get right to the nitty gritty of what you are trying to say and people will either love you for it or hate you for it; but you don’t care.
You don’t leave any room for ambiguity and you leave your audience knowing exactly where they stand with you, and vice versa.
2. Prefer actions to words
Words are obsolete when compared to actions. You know this and you know that bullshit comes from words, which you don’t buy. This is why you don’t overanalyze people’s texts, words, and promises.
On the contrary, you prefer observing their behavior, gestures, and reactions face to face. Because of this, you don’t build high expectations out of people’s promises and thought-through verbal expressions.
3. Don’t suffer from the fear of missing out
It’s totally okay for you to miss a party or not knowing people’s life updates. You realize that you don’t have to know every gossip or other people’s drama, simply because you will only follow up on the things that you actually care.
But, when you have interest towards something you will be the first person who knows the current news and you will learn about that topic as deep as you can.
4. Talk the talk and walk the walk
You always practice what you preach and will always remain consistent with your behavior. It’s because you don’t see a reason good enough to fake your attitudes and shift your opinions because of the circumstances.
If you disagree, you will be brave enough to speak out and show your disagreement. There are always good reasons behind your actions and you won’t tolerate peer pressure. This makes you honest toward yourself and the others, regardless of their preference.
5. Have a small circle of friends
Because you are comfortable in your own skin, spending time with yourself, and expect people to do what they say they will do, you have a small circle of friends who believe in the same things and you can all trust each other to be there for one another.
You don’t need 400 Facebook friends and a little black book filled with tons of names. You just need your tribe and you are good to go.
6. Enjoy being on your own
Your independent personality allows you to be able to handle things by yourself and you don’t mind being alone. You can do well without other people’s help and if you do partner with someone to achieve something, you will only do that if the other person shares your values and ideas.
This includes going to places and doing things that others wouldn’t do on their own. You have no problem with this, as you know that you are perfectly fine with doing things with and without other people.
7. You are Low Maintenance
You barely post anything to your social media accounts and you will only share something really special to you. Like to be MIA, simply because you highly prioritize your own privacy. People are actually curious about your day and you keep it that way because you think it’s important to draw a line between your life and theirs.
8. Always busy doing the things you love
You don’t like pointless activities, and whatever you do is directed toward what you love. You spend your time pursuing your goals and dreams and you always choose to do the things you love.
Your love to be productive is not inspired by the need to gain compliments and appraisal from others, but rather by your love for the things you do. Your fulfillment comes before the positive reactions.
9. People’s opinions don’t matter to you
It’s not that you are rigid and stubborn, but in most cases, people’s opinions are based on surface perception and have little or nothing to do with the reality you are facing – and you are well aware of this. That’s why you like to march to the beat of your own drum and you don’t care much about what others think about it.
What you’re doing is none of their business, and what they’re saying is none of your business!
10. Rather stay single than be with someone who doesn’t get your values
You don’t suffer from the need to be in a relationship at any cost. Instead, you will wait for that person who shares your dreams and values. You’ll be most attracted to the person who has dreams as big as yours and who will challenge you and teach you new things.
You like your partner to see you as an equal, not a competitor. It’s simple: you don’t need anyone, but when you want someone, then there’s the chemistry you need to get things started.
