The socio-sexual hierarchy

I have a great deal of respect for Roissy, the various contributors at the Chateau, and many of the other theoreticians and practitioners of Game. However, I think the stark division of men into successful alphas and unsuccessful betas is too simplistic and reflects an artificial limitation on the broad applicability of Game beyond the sexual imperative. The inutility of the binary division should be obvious, since even those who subscribe to it tend to subdivide the categories into Greater and Lesser Alphas and High and Low Betas, while some also add the Omega category.

When we examine any conventional human social circle, we reliably observe a broader range of distinctly identifiable social archetypes that go well beyond mere sexual activity. And it is based on these observations that I have expanded the Alpha-Beta division into a hierarchy that covers the broad spectrum of socio-sexuality.

Alpha: The alpha is the tall, good-looking guy who is the center of both male and female attention. The classic star of the football team who is dating the prettiest cheerleader. The successful business executive with the beautiful, stylish, blonde, size zero wife. All the women are attracted to him, while all the men want to be him, or at least be his friend. At a social gathering like a party, he's usually the loud, charismatic guy telling self-flattering stories to a group of attractive women who are listening with interest. However, alphas are only interested in women to the extent that they exist for the alpha's gratification, physical and psychological, they are actually more concerned with their overall group status.

Lifetime sexual partners = 4x average+.

Beta: Betas are the good-looking guys who aren't as uniformly attractive or socially dominant as the Alpha, but are nevertheless confident, attractive to women, and do well with them. At the party, they are the loud guy's friends who showed up with the alcohol and who are flirting with the tier one women and cheerfully pairing up with the tier two women. Betas tend to genuinely like women and view them in a somewhat optimistic manner, but they don't have a lot of illusions about them either. Betas tend to be happy, secure in themselves, and are up for anything their alpha wants to do. When they marry, it is not infrequently to a woman who was one of the alpha's former girlfriends.

Lifetime sexual partners = 2-3x average.

Delta: The normal guy. Deltas are the great majority of men. They can't attract the most attractive women, so they usually aim for the second-tier women with very limited success, and stubbornly resist paying attention to all of the third-tier women who are comfortably in their league. This is ironic, because deltas would almost always be happier with their closest female equivalents. When a delta does manage to land a second-tier woman, he is constantly afraid that she will lose interest in him and will, not infrequently, drive her into the very loss of interest he fears by his non-stop dancing of attendance upon her. In a social setting, the deltas are the men clustered together in groups, each of them making an occasional foray towards various small gaggles of women before beating a hasty retreat when direct eye contact and engaged responses are not forthcoming. Deltas tend to put the female sex on pedestals and have overly optimistic expectations of them; if a man rhapsodizes about his better half or is an inveterate White Knight, he is almost certainly a delta. Deltas like women, but find them mysterious, confusing, and are sometimes secretly a little afraid of them.

Lifetime sexual partners = 1-1.5x average

Gamma: The introspective, the unusual, the unattractive, and all too often the bitter. Gammas are often intelligent, usually unsuccessful with women, and not uncommonly all but invisible to them, the gamma alternates between placing women on pedestals and hating the entire sex. This mostly depends upon whether an attractive woman happened to notice his existence or not that day. Too introspective for their own good, gammas are the men who obsess over individual women for extended periods of time and supply the ranks of stalkers, psycho-jealous ex-boyfriends, and the authors of excruciatingly romantic rhyming doggerel. In the unlikely event they are at the party, they are probably in the corner muttering darkly about the behavior of everyone else there... sometimes to themselves. Gammas tend to have have a worship/hate relationship with women, the current direction of which is directly tied to their present situation. However, they are sexual rejects, not social rejects.

Lifetime voluntary sexual partners = .5x average

Omega: The truly unfortunate. Omegas are the social losers who were never in the game. Sometimes creepy, sometimes damaged, often clueless, and always undesirable. They're not at the party. It would never have crossed anyone's mind to invite them in the first place. Omegas are either totally indifferent to women or hate them with a borderline homicidal fury.

Lifetime sexual partners < 2

Sigma: The outsider who doesn't play the social game and manage to win at it anyhow. The sigma is hated by alphas because sigmas are the only men who don't accept or at least acknowledge, however grudgingly, their social dominance. (NB: Alphas absolutely hate to be laughed at and a sigma can often enrage an alpha by doing nothing more than smiling at him.) Everyone else is vaguely confused by them. In a social situation, the sigma is the man who stops in briefly to say hello to a few friends accompanied by a Tier 1 girl that no one has ever seen before. Sigmas like women, but tend to be contemptuous of them. They are usually considered to be strange. Gammas often like to think they are sigmas, failing to understand that sigmas are not social rejects, they are at the top of the social hierarchy despite their refusal to play by its rules.

Lifetime sexual partners = 4x average+.

Lambda: Those men who have quite literally no interest in conventional male-female sexual relations. They clearly have their own hierarchy of sorts, but I can't say that I know much about it other than it appears to somehow involve youth, free weights, and mustaches.

Lifetime sexual partners = 10x average+

Now, it is important to keep in mind that it serves absolutely no purpose to identify yourself in some manner that you think is "better" or higher up the hierarchy. No one cares what you think you are and your opinion about your place in the social hierarchy is probably the opinion that matters least. There is no good or bad here, there is only what happens to be observable in social interaction. Consider: alphas seemingly rule the roost and yet they live in a world of constant conflict and status testing. Sigmas usually acquired their outsider status the hard way; one seldom becomes immune to the social hierarchy by virtue of mass popularity in one's childhood. Betas... okay, betas actually have it pretty good. But the important thing to keep in mind is that you can't improve your chances of success in the social game if you begin by attempting to deceive yourself as to where you stand vis-a-vis everyone else around you.

Atown said...

I think this hierarchy would be slightly more accurate/intelligible if you added one more group. These are the main characteristics of this group.

- Not particularly social, but when he shows up to a gathering or party, people are pleasantly surprised

- Able to attract tier two women (6-8) due to one or two positive features (looks, money, humor, intelligence, unconventionalness)

- Approached by women more often than he approaches women because of social timidness

- Prefers longer relationships to short-term flings because he finds it easier to maintain a relationship than begin or end one

- View of women similar to betas

- Not dominant in public, but more dominant with women in private

I think this group is independent of any that you have described. It would also make for the use of this very intelligible chart.

Desert Cat said...

I thought white knighting was one of the defining characteristics of gammatude. Now it's part of the delta sphere?

Looks like there has been a slight downward shift in the characteristics boundaries between the delta/gamma/omega categories.

Atown, you are possibly describing the sub-sigma--similar to what beta is to alpha. But I think Vox would say that's just a delta.

Desert Cat said...

Oh. Yes. That is what your diagram would indicate.

Vox said...

Yes, that's a pretty straightforward delta, Atown. What you're describing is well within the bounds of normal delta behavior, just relatively attractive and shy ones.

TobyTemple said...

Vox. What hierarchy do male aspies usually fall into? I think their cluelessness in social interaction could trigger attraction to women who do not know them. But I'm not sure since I have never seen such an interaction before...

Vox said...

Aspies are usually omegas or gammas at best. Their cluelessness goes well beyond the disinterest that women find attractive. The interesting thing to consider, however, is that their devotion to rules means that they could probably make more effective use of Game than most. On the other hand, Roissy often rolls his eyes at the way in which the aspies and quasi-aspies at his site insist on taking everything literally.

revrogers said...

Vox,

Will you at some point, explore the descriptions in another social setting other than the primary male-female sexual interactive one, e.g. within the social setting of work, church, etc.? I know the sexual dynamic is not totally absent even in those settings, but it would be interesting to see your thoughts regarding those social relationships.

Vox said...

Sure, Revrogers, I don't see why not. After all, is it not my contention that the basic concepts of Game are much more broadly applicable than generally thought?

Philalethes said...

Still not clear to me why the 3rd & 4th types are out of alphabetical order (i.e. in the Greek alphabet the order is alpha, beta, gamma, delta)?

Anonymous said...

Atown's guy could also be beta but not a sigma. Sigmas are not socially timid or shy.

Indy said...

I got married 27 years ago, submitted to Jesus shortly thereafter, and since I was in military ignored women as I had little to do with them.

When Vox brought this subject up a couple of years ago, I read Roissy and my eyes were opened - there were actually explanations to the weird behaviors of women.

I continue to read Roissy now, but with a mind to understand the dynamics of current culture, and how to make the most of interactions.

Having worked in male dominated industries (software and systems development) most of the last 20+ years, this information is trans-formative as we move into the female dominated medical market.

What I have ignored for years as bizarre female behavior was [in some cases] flirting. I ignored the behaviors because I am unapologetic follower of Jesus, wear a wedding ring, and speak affectionately of my lovely bride; why would anyone flirt? My failure was to not more fully consider the irrational behavior of women.

For men intent on honoring their wedding vows, there is still much to know and put to good use, you just have to learn the underlying dynamics of the irrational behavior.

Anonymous said...

Let's focus on the omegas for a moment. There are mentioned two distinct catagories: those that bumble through life cluelessly (aspies) and the Eric Harris types.

Two subcatagories?

And then there's this: "you just have to learn the underlying dynamics of the irrational behavior"

I'll pass.

revrogers said...

As a pastor I am finding this discussion of game very useful and insightful in counseling and teaching. I especially hope to educate the young men in the congregation to have much wisdom and self-control in their female interactions, and to educate the young women how their sub-conscious alpha gravitations/hamster-wheel may put them in dangerous circumstances physically, morally, emotionally and spiritually.

Thanks for the insights.

Vox said...

Delta is also the symbol for change. Normal men, the sort I describe as deltas, have the most capacity for it. Besides, not 5 percent of the audience knows the Greek alphabet.

Lambda isn't in order either.

Atown said...

VD:
Well, maybe my description was not very good. Besides "making an occasional foray towards various small gaggles of women before beating a hasty retreat when direct eye contact and engaged responses are not forthcoming", I don't see much similarity between the people I am describing and deltas. Perhaps you could elaborate your definition a bit more, but these characteristics seem to me to be quite different.

-View of women similar to betas vs. pedestalization

-Good at maintaining existing relationships vs. driving women to lose interest

-Second tier women vs third tier

Perhaps I am just trying to tease out a difference that is ultimately insignificant, but I know guys that have had plenty of success with women, but who I wouldn't describe as alpha, beta, or sigma.

Vox said...

Define "plenty". Are we talking one steady girlfriend per year on average or weekly threesomes? If I recall my old junior high sex ed class correctly, "promiscuous" was defined as six partners per year. Is that what you mean by "plenty of success"?

Anyhow, clearly I'm going to have to develop some kind of metric taking quality into account. If you're having a lot of success with third-tier women, you're not an alpha, except perhaps in the most relative sense of the term.

Steve said...

I'm (relatively) happy to say I've gone from Omega to Gamma. I used to suffer from very severe depression, which messed me up internally. When you're messed up internally you're messed up socially, you know. I finally treated my depression successfully, and went from social screw-up to guy with no idea what to do.

One of my friends, however, is very good with women(and being social in general), and he's been helping me learn the basic skills I need. I don't feel like I have a social deficit so much as I have a blank slate. My current goal is to go out and socialize whenever I can, making friends, chatting with women, asking them out(even if I get shot down) and learning from the experience. It's been good. The progress so far has been very rapid, going from socially useless to almost fun in about a year. Hopefully as I improve I'll leave gamma behind, as well.

Atown said...

I don't mean their numerical success is anything like an alpha male that has a new conquest every month. By "plenty" I mean sometimes one girlfriend for a year or 2, sometimes multiple girls in one year. When a relationship ends, they find a new one without too much difficulty.

The definition of Delta just makes them seem so hapless like they have to beg girls to date them, just so they them chase away with their white knighting. Delta is supposed to be a broad category, but your definition seems too specific.

Hermit said...

"Yes, that's a pretty straightforward delta, Atown. What you're describing is well within the bounds of normal delta behavior, just relatively attractive and shy ones."

I fit the definition of Sigma perfectly, with the minor exception of not being very Alpha. I imagine that a large portion of Vox's readership is introverted, and many INTJs, and a great many that reject much of pop-culture not to be different, but because they recognize it for the evil that it is. This can blur many of the lines, but many people are just over complicating it.

I am a very introverted Delta. I've always had good luck with women, but only when I can force myself to get out and talk to people. I've never been afraid to talk to females, but when I get around any groups larger than 3, I suddenly don't have anything to talk about..

Desert Cat said...

"Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful.
And since we've no place to go,
Let it Snow let it Snow let it Snow!"

Vox said...

"I fit the definition of Sigma perfectly, with the minor exception of not being very Alpha."

Then you're not a Sigma at all. You're almost surely a Gamma who doesn't grasp the difference between winning outside the rules and not playing.

Desert Cat said...

Per previous descriptions of Sigmas as the end result of the school of hard knocks, it seems Sigma is the pinnacle achievement of Gammas, Omegas and the less socially inclined Deltas, provided that "delta" process is taken in earnest with the correct knowledge at hand.

Don't confuse the desirable (and potentially achievable) end result with the path. If you're not pulling the (high tier) birds you want, whenever and wherever, then you really can't say Sigma. Take everything about the Alpha, subtract his big social circle and you have Sigma. Anything less is somewhere on the path.

Hey guys, just showing up with my hot wife, whom you haven't seen that often.

Later.

Anonymous said...

After considering this issue for a while I believe I am a beta. I was extremely succesful at getting women in college and in the 2 years before I went to college. I have had many instances where I was clearly in charge of a room full of people and loved it, but there were other instances where I was aware I was out of my league when there where a couple alpha males in my presence. I have had no problem scoring women in the 7-9range and yet everytime I am putting game on a 10 I end up just being friends. I think the times I most felt I was an aplha I was clearly just imitating the motions and doing so very well, but I do not think it came natural for me.

That's more than a little disturbing, dude.

Duke of Earl said...

Definitely an Omega... going on Gamma.

Gabriel said...

As I came to understand it, Sigma isn't necessarily the "advanced" or "accomplished" form of Gamma/Omega. Sigma is simply the guy who doesn't care. He's too busy doing things he finds to be interesting to bother monitoring or working on his socio-sexual status. Despite this fact, he still manages to be place in the Alpha catergory by others.

Vox would know better than I would, but if you even care where you are on the heirarchy, you probably aren't Sigma.

T14 said...

This idea that male groups have defined and obvious leaders with minions is more the stuff of comic books and action movies than actual social circles. Having been a member of a number of close-knit male groups, I have never once experienced such a dynamic. The loud social guy isn't the social coordinator who isn't always the Adonis who lands women while picking his nose.

Without fail, the groups are men who are similar in terms of looks, social aptitude, economic background, and interests. It is difficult to lead or follow when among equals

Eric S. Mueller said...

I'm most likely a gamma. That definitely describes me up to the point I got married. I've possibly progressed to delta, but I'll have to do some more reading on game.

WATYF said...

I agree with Atown. I think there's a missing category. I went through this whole list with my wife and told her to pick which one I fit into and neither of us could come up with one that was even close for even half of the characteristics. Then we read Atown's comment and she said, "That's the one".

I don't think Atown's summary is "Delta", either, seeing how it leaves out some of the more important parts of "Delta" behavior towards women. Also, I think the missing category shares portions of the other categories. I found several segments from almost all of the categories that fit me (except for Omega and Lambda).

Here is a category, built using the portions of other categories that fit me more closely:

In a social setting, can be the center of both male and female attention. Tends to genuinely like women and view them in a somewhat optimistic manner, but doesn't have a lot of illusions about them either. Tends to be happy and secure in themselves. Can't attract the most attractive women, so they usually aim for the second-tier women with limited success, and resist paying attention to all of the third-tier women who are comfortably in their league. Intelligent. Not very successful with, and all but invisible to, the 1st (and upper 2nd) tier women. The outsider who usually doesn't play the social game. People are often confused by them.

Of course... that's probably a bit too specific to me. I never, ever had success with the 1st tier women that I *wanted* to get, but had success with 2nd-3rd tier women who (quite literally) threw themselves at me, which, oddly enough, happened on more than one occasion. This involved me "stealing" women from a higher status male more than once. I wasn't interested in playing social games, and often avoided them entirely or even playfully threw a wrench into them for my own (non-bitter) entertainment... but I knew how to interact in groups and could command attention among my peers when I wanted to. And I didn't have any of the freakish pedestalization and hatred/bitterness towards women. I also engaged in negging and playful banter and was completely indifferent to some 2-3 tier women in my social circle who I later found out were interested in me.

I think we're talking about a less attractive Sigma. Someone who abides outside the social norms but isn't a closet serial killer. Someone who doesn't have enough to draw the 1st tier (or maybe even 2nd tier) women and is even intimidated by them, but who can have a healthy perspective and success with the opposite sex below that.

Maybe it's just that none of the categories allow for someone who only has moderate success with women but ISN'T a freakshow in some way. Or maybe these categories are all relevant to the environment. If you dropped me into the hottest bar in LA, I'd probably come across as a Gamma... but in the average Midwest gathering, I could be mistaken for an Alpha or Sigma (though I freely admit that I'm not... not that I care... and no... I don’t mean that in a Gamma "Not that I CARE!!!1!" way... I really do just not care).

I have found myself reacting to various blog posts on this site in a few different ways.

Contributor A = Yeah, I can relate. I used to be there.
Contributor B = Someone really needed to hear this?
Contributor C = That's exactly what I needed to hear.

If the contributors are accurately representing their nominal peers, then the reader's reaction to their posts are one indication of the reader's position in the hierarchy. Not a dead give-away, but an indication.

bob k. mando said...

here is an excellent example of the problem with way Vox currently has the hierarchy constructed.

read the way he describes 'Alpha' above:
"is the tall, good-looking guy who is the center of both male and female attention."

now, read the way he describes the Alpha Kissinger:
http://voxday.blogspot.com/2010/01/roissy-and-limits-of-game.html
"Once you've seen beautiful married women ignoring tall, handsome, wealthy, and even famous men because that ugly old troll Henry Kissinger walked in the room, you simply can't deny the reality of Alphadom."

Vox directly contradicts himself. and he does so on the basis of my Intrinsic/Extrinsic subgroupings of Alpha.

this implies that, at some level, Vox is aware that even his current formulation has serious shortcomings.

I didn't realize how long it had been since I posted, I read the replies to my post and I had to mull them over a bit.

"Let it Snow let it Snow let it Snow!"

Yeah, I deserved that. Narrowing it down to just 7 Types, when there are so many facets to a person's personality, there's surely going to be some overlap. But I clearly way over-thought it.

"Then you're not a Sigma at all. You're almost surely a Gamma"

I never said I was Sigma, I said I fit some parts of the description of Sigma but I did say I felt I was just an introverted Delta (yes I know I'm back-peddling, I said I had a lot of Sigma traits, I've thought about it a bit more). I don't think I'm Gamma, reading the description, and trying to honestly evaluate myself, the only thing I think describes me is "introspective". I've never had a problem with hating or pedestalizing women, and that seems to be a defining characteristic of Gammas.

I've really enjoyed reading this blog. I'm long past the point of trying to land the best chick I can, but I'm always trying to improve my marriage. It doesn't help me if I lie to myself about where I stand.

YOHAMI said...

I like this hierarchy, though its strange to see beta so high on it. I get the point it makes a huge room for describing the lower ranks

So according to this list I was a Gamma, turned into Omega and then did a long transition to Sigma (theres a link missing on the asocial side, my growing happened, mostly, on the dark), and then traded my sigmaness for alphaness when I reintroduced to society

We should do a board / cards game with this

Desert Cat said...

"(theres a link missing on the asocial side, my growing happened, mostly, on the dark)"

I agree. Vox has said this is just another flavor of Delta, but that makes Delta a very diverse category.

Which works when you realize that delta is the category of transition (as in the common usage of the greek letter to denote change in a formula), of people who could go one way or the other, who share traits of other categories but don't fit neatly into either end of the extremes.

Anonymous said...

Oh my gosh. It is so adorable that you guys sit around tapping away at your keyboards trying to work out what category you are in and making rules up about the socio-sexual status of other men.

Anonymous said...

I love that you add a factor to indicate the number of sexual partners types have with respect to the general average. It totally adds credibility to your argument.

I also love how 5 out of 7 types of men have a greater than average number of sexual partners. The only way for this to possibly work, statistically speaking, is for there to be a SHITLOAD of omegas having vastly fewer partners than the 5 other groups of men who are having more than average.

This doesn't pan out, however, given your descriptions of Omegas as so strange and unusual. If we had as many Omegas in our population as would be required to balance out your equation of averages, they would, by definition, not be so unusual.

Grab a quick brain and figure out that this is similar reasoning to the finding that 85% of people believe they are "better than average" drivers.

Markku said...

I also love how 5 out of 7 types of men have a greater than average number of sexual partners.

It's because deltas are such a large group compared to the others combined. You don't need a shitload of omegas because you don't have a shitload of alphas and betas.

True T14, human nature's more complex than this list. But, it's interesting and can be useful. RevRogers, amen; women need to be taught which instincts to obey. Indy, I recommend you stick with Susan Walsh and Athol Kay; Roissy knows much and feels little, the result being that he exhorts feeding on women's weaknesses.

Vox, your words about betas on the hierarchy chart were reassuring, and all the descriptions had some surprises; it almost seems pointless to tell betas to alpha-up when they're so successful, though when it comes to extreme beta-hood, I know it's necessary. Plus, they needn't be supreme alphas; they just need SOME of those alpha traits to be the best versions of themselves. All this tells me it's pretty useless, as I thought, to obsess over such labels and who fits what. Some apply, but men in general are more complex than being just one thing or the other. Sigmas almost seem likable, but I must say that your own contempt of women is not. Ironically enough, if any of these labels applied to females, I'd be a bit of a sigma myself. Though I'm rarely in contempt of men.

The bottomline is, men need to know to be both visibly strong and confident, and good people as well; this is what will both attract and then keep a mate, other traits (listed here) regardless.

If anyone like you, RevRogers, is interested in a brilliant anology of good alpha vs. bad/weak alpha, there's a brilliant YA thriller novel called "Shattering Glass". The story's told by a young boy who's friends with the resident highschool alpha, Rob. Rob is THE alpha in EVERY way: he's strong, confidant, unapologetic, polite, dominant of his sphere, persuasive, intelligent and kind, the latter of which wins him hard loyalty unmatched by any before him. Yet he's also humble when he needs to be, listening to the friends in his circle. The alpha before him, Tristan, was a joke of a guy: good-looking, bossy, arrogant, obnoxious, nasty and unintelligent, always kicking those below him; Rob replaced him so fast when he moved to the school that he didn't know what hit him. Now, incidentally, the main plot is about a guy that Rob wants to help out and lift in the social status; a kid named Simon Glass, a gamma, or omega or whatever, I don't know what you'd call him, but he's a nerd and easy bait for the shallow Tristan. But as Rob helps Simon ascend in the hierarchy, Simon shows a nasty side and wishes to replace Rob; the power play between the young men is one of the most fascinating aspects of the novel. I'd be very interested to know where Simon, nerd nature and then traitor nature combined, fit on this list.

If the measure of success is number of sexual partners, why not include rapists? Some of them have "game" worth at least 1x average.

Anonymous said...

I hate to say this, but I feel like someone has created the "Sigma" category to put themselves in it.
Sort of in a "I am the winner, even alphas are afraid of me, I'm just not surrounded by people as they don't get me" kind of way.
I suppose a few men fit into that role, but lifetime sexual partners 4x average +? Get over yourself.

Random google clicking, you've failed me again. Seriously, people believe this s~?

Newsflash to anyone else who finds themselves reading through this nonsense: There's no such thing as "tier 1" women or men. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. A man from Ethiopia is going to have a different concept of "tier 1" beauty than a man from Denver.

The woman -you- walk into a social gathering with whom you believe to be "tier 1" probably looks like a so-called Omega Female over-makeup'd tramp to me who I wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pole. But as far as you're concerned, she's the most beautiful creature on Earth. So why should you give a flying f~ if I find her ugly?

Same thread, different line: Why do you give a flying f~ whether somebody else thinks you're an "Alpha", "Beta", or whatever other silly-ass label they want to stick on you?

If you're reading this, and took the article even remotely seriously, stop acting like a child by defining yourself through other people's perceptions. Be yourself, respect yourself, and anybody who doesn't like you for that can sit and spin.

Anonymous said...

The heirarchy is technically correct, but there's an implied problem with it. From a Myers Briggs standpoint, the Alpha male as described here will almost always be an "S" (a tactile person) as opposed to an "N" (an idea person). As an N, I can't stand S's. I avoid them like the plague, male and female alike. Most people are S's, and S's generally aren't wild about N's either. So intuitive people are at a natural disadvantage. Just having to TALK to an S is such torture that I would never get anywhere as a serial seducer. There would be no pleasure in it. I would much prefer an N I can actually deal with. So I do despise the alpha male as described here. He strikes me as an idiot. I would agree that he lands a lot of women though, and you can't argue with that ....

RealitiCzech said...

Perhaps I'm missing a joke, here. Can you give an example of a lambda? I don't think I've encountered such a creature. Or is lambda a euphemism for "gays"?

Anonymous said...

I googled '"alpha male" beta gamma delta omega' to see if I could find a citation for the basis of this classification. I suspected that it might just be a sophomoric, populist classification system with no real basis on any kind of academic or professional (PSA, for example) research, but rather a basis in self-aggrandising braggadocio. Thanks for clearing this up for me.

Sigma is is not "made up" or "created to put oneself in" at all.

What's more, if one could decide what to be, then sigma is a way, way better option than alpha.

Alpha lifestyle has shitloads of social obligations.
Most of these obligations don't lead to anything besides flattering/ego gratification. (in astrological terms : LEO-gratification)
Sigma doesn't give a fuck about all that, or wast time on anything that doesn't explicitly serve his immediate agenda.
To a sigma, alphas are wasters of time & effort. And I couldn't agree more.

I know about alpha's & beta's, and 90% of what their social activity is, all thing considered, boring & useless.

In professional terms :
If alpha is the "charismatic" company exec, than sigma is the independent trader, trading that company's stock. Laughing all the way to the bank.

To me, sigmas are not bad people. Not at all. They just don't waste effort on what's obviously seems high effort/low reward to them. And it IS.

When it comes to girls, it's clear that sigma appeals in a different way than alpha, and to a different type of girl.
If you want an appeal that "gets" you girls in useful ways, be sigma. Screw alpha.

Come to think of an example...
"Scotty" of GoodlookingLoser is propably a good example of sigma.
He doesn't give a fuck. Not about any alpha out there. Or about anything else.
And Paul Janka propably has a fair amount of sigma too.

I don't see these people wasting time being the "center of attention" at social gatterings or other crap like that. They'll be much too busy ****ing girls instead.

"Alpha" in high school = total fucking loser 6+ years later

Most interesting/respectable people I know can smell the social "Game" from miles away, and the smell isn't pleasant.

I propose an additional category:
Epsilon - Don't give a fuck about social status, because solving real world problems, improving the self, or producing great art is just far more interesting to think about. Probably in a stable supportive relationship that allows them to focus on important things rather than social appearance, or picking up women. A.K.A. Wise men.

The belief that "Alpha's" are winning at life smells like a douchebag circle jerk to me.

I have clearly been trolled by this website, so congratulations to all. Feel free to come out now and admit that if everyone attempted to live by Alpha-dog rules the world would implode after an apocalyptic house party ushers in the rise of the almighty Alpha-prime; an Alpha so alpha-y that after a night of negging on mother Earth, she would succumb to his advances and wind up with a biblical case of quakes. Alpha-prime... you motherfucker.

This is the biggest bullshit I've ever read concerning game since Mystery Method. Alpha is always on top, maybe great or lesser alpha makes more sense. All these concepts stems from evolutionary biology and herd dynamics, stop trying to pretend you know anything about science.

A commenter to this post: http://two.cedonulli.com/2012/05/alpha-is-beta/ introduced me to this site and the idea of 'sigma'.

One of my hobbies is to bang the (current) girlfriends of alphas. Leader/follower dynamics make me either amused or looking for a way to hurt people's feelings.

4x average? You bet, suckah.

Jake said...

And just like that, one of the things that always confused me, about me, gets cleared up.

Now I can quit going "but I *should* care" and "maybe I *should* be more extroverted and contributing, rather than just sniping the hot girls and otherwise staying under the radar.

Many thanks!

Generally speaking all sigmas were alpha at one point. They still have game but most likely don't give a crap about it. They don't have plans or goals because they socially dropped out. Do the make money? When they need it. Do they get girls? When they want. To add they don't really go for just tier 1 girls as you put it, they don't place importance on beauty as much as substance. They generally can't be spotted because they blend in when in a social situation. As soon as a sigma rejoins your guys party, better known as society they, become alpha all over again.

"they don't really go for just tier 1 girls as you put it"
The correct is that we don't go for gold diggers since we know that they expect us to be Alpha.
"As soon as a sigma rejoins your guys party, better known as society they, become alpha all over again"
This belief is why some Alpha's hate us. It's simply not true.
Note that I say "some" hate us. I have Alpha friend's. Once an Alpha trust a Sigma the Sigma is very useful for the Alpha since the Sigma don't have any motive for trying to replace the Alpha.

Hey Vox:

Isn't it possible that a dude who might be Alpha in one environment could become less than Alpha in another environment? Could a Beta turn himself into an Alpha by finding himself a smaller pond to swim in? How much of this is relative and how much absolute?

Nice refinement of classifications, but perhaps we need to add a moral dimension as well as an alpha/omega dimension. If you'll pardon the repost, this is something I put up at Dalrock's a while ago...

Comparison chart:

Righteous Alpha: attracts women effortlessly, marries well, usually marries young. Off the market.*

Wicked Alpha: attracts women effortlessly, sleeps with lots of women when young; may marry and serially cheat later in life. May pretend to be a Righteous Alpha in order to get laid; targets Christian women with this game. When women and pastors bitterly and endlessly complain about the behavior of “men”, they are mostly talking about this subset of men only, though they don’t realize it. (Call this the “Mark Driscoll Fallacy”)

Righteous Beta: works his @$$ off trying to earn money and attract women, but is largely ignored until later in life. Does all the spiritual and character building inner work that Church and family tell him he needs to do to get a woman, and is bitterly disappointed to find that it doesn’t work. Tends to marry in his 30s, and is often a virgin or relatively inexperienced til then. In church, he is likely to get blamed for the crimes of the Wicked Alphas (the Mark Driscoll Fallacy, see above). Also, he may be called out and shamed for failing to “man up” and marry these good Christian girls, when in fact he’s been trying his damnedest and has been getting endlessly rejected. (Call this the "Albert Mohler Fallacy")

Wicked Beta: gives up, turns to porn and/or prostitution when he realizes that he’ll need to work 60 hour weeks for the next decade before a woman will talk to him. May totally drop out of the career realm and live in mom’s basement, or may earn well and spend the money on himself.

*(Many pastors appear to be Righteous Alphas, who have no understanding whatsoever as to why it’s so difficult for the majority of young men in their churches to get married off. It was so easy for Pastor Alpha to find a girl, that he almost can’t help but conclude that the single men under his pastoral care, just aren’t even trying.)

Interesting discussion. I think Delta makes a lot of sense -- I came to this stuff very late as a rubric, but recognize a LOT of delta behavior that was more or less programmed into me, and that I gradually broke out of in graduate school, when I went abroad and shook out of a lot of social detritus.

Don't know what I'd be rated now, and could care less, but on the assumption that it remains "regular guy," I think that a lot of folks are getting hung up on the "understanding women" part. Understanding women doesn't suddenly mean one has a completely different relationship with the social web. It just means you're a guy who's much more successful with women in general, b/c you're not getting tied up in knots of bullshit and can see things as they actually are.

I am curious if there is an equivalent hierarchy for women. Or, could the one shown in this article sort of apply to women as well?

PartyTravelSexLove said...

No utility in breaking things down further. Your Alpha sounds like Mitt Romney, but he's been with the same women his whole life, so he can't be an Alpha in the gaming world. All you need to know Alphas are guys that can get girls and Betas and Omegas cannot. 10% of the guys can get girls in some form but fuck things up good for themselves. 1% of the men, know the system. Sorry but that is the real truth!

happycrow said...

Karen:

I think there might be, actually. I'm a sigma, I guess (don't play the social game, never had any trouble with women, landed me a smoking-hot wife who adores me), though socially I'm more of the "introverted/unusual" that's closer to Gamma. And I've always been completely uninterested in women who are playing the social-hierarchy game (b/c it's about as meaningful as masterbating in public)...there's a pretty clear distinction in women there.

THAT SAID, the female game is fundamentally different than the male game, and I'm not sure the same hierarchy would apply. For starters, women who are beautiful generally don't have a problem landing men, but have more problems *keeping* them. So the goal and game wouldn't work out quite the same.

"Vox. What hierarchy do male aspies usually fall into? I think their cluelessness in social interaction could trigger attraction to women who do not know them. But I'm not sure since I have never seen such an interaction before..."
----------------------------------------------
I will never forget my good friend Shaun at school who has severe aspergers. He was painfully shy until puberty. Then out of nowhere he became the most natural player I have ever seen. It seemed as he was so socially naive that the idea of being nervous approaching a woman just never occurred to him. We once saw him making out with a girl seconds after meeting her; no idea what he did, but it worked. He is still rather odd, but women are no problem for him.

I know that he is probably the exception to the rule, but I couldn't help sharing the experience after reading your comment.

James said...

Ex-omega (man was I a f'ed up youth!) delta/gamma here who don't got game, will never be a player and who don't much care... but who has an insight from experience. There's no such thing as a sigma. This type is just an alpha or beta from a social hierarchy that's higher value than the current one in context. That's why (in your terminology) the local alpha hates him: the sigma shows up the local game as beneath him, the local hierarchy as being unworthy of mastery, and the local alpha as being irrelevant to him.

Seen that multiple times, and, I gotta tell you, a ringside seat to that just never gets old. :)

Alphafags like to attempt to shun the Lambdas, because they know they'll never be able to neg again once they get pozzed. But the truth is all alphas secretly want to take the cock.

So I am a "Sigma" - so that is why all the Alphas hate me. I thought I was just an asshole! Alphas seem to be unhappy all the time: constantly trying to "one-up" each other. They must be constipated - being to up-tight all of the time. Is that why they hate us Sigmas? We are not up-tight but still manage to get sex on a regular basis. Is that it? I guess I now know who the fools are in this hierachy. I'm not laughing at you Alphas (on the outside, anyway) just smilin' in agreement:)

Anonymous said...

So do Alpha's and Sigma's lose their rank if they come in contact with another man sexually? I don't think so. As a bi man myself I have been both passive and active with Alpha's and Sigmas in both one-on-one and bi-group situations. These men fit the above alpha and sigma descriptions above and live their lives either openly or discretely bi. AND THERE IS WAY MORE OF THEM THAN YOU THINK! They can get women and men to do their bidding in or out of the bed. They are by no means Lambda though more fearful men and women may say otherwise. Men who are not afraid of cock or pussy and can master both sexes are to me the pinnacle of manhood and by far the most interesting people on the planet. All others are just loud talkers, fence sitters, or just plane boring.

Someone post links to pictures of females of the border between tier 1 and 2, 2 and 3... There have to be more tiers. How do these tiers correlate to the alpha-beta-delta-gamma on the female hierarchy?

Are stunning and beautiful both tier 1?
Pretty tier 2?
Decent tier 3?
Meh but not awful tier 4.
Troll tier 5?

What tier would a female with C+ (doable) face and lets say B body. Lets say +10 pounds for a little pouch nothing serious, B cups, no severe defects. Not overly hairy. etc. No non typical mental issues.

Used to be a weak delta now a low mid beta. I can chat up women now. Confidence is probably the biggest key. Sigh. fat lot of good it does me as I won't cheat on my wife. wish I knew at 20 what I know 20 years later.

Judging by this scale, you could say I'm a Beta. I've always been the wingman, not too bothered with following others, but my opinion and word carries a fair bit of weight and I can lead if needs be.

Up until recently that is. I'm a student, and share a house with a mate and two girls. One of the girls has began to date some bloke. He's round a lot. It's weird, I swear the house SMELLS different when he's in. How do I let him know that in my house I'm in charge. Maybe I'm jealous, I don't know. I want him to know that between me and him, I'm the alpha. How do I go about doing this?

Anonymous said...

I've found this read to be very interesting, and tend to find myself observing individuals in my workplace, seeing certain traits and attempting to comprehend and discern what certain men fall into.

I've a very hard time figuring out what I am. If I were to be modest, I'd say a beta, but if I'm at my best, I'd say Sigma. And I say Sigma because I don't really agree with social-hierarchy and how money and appearance in particular, along with status affirm how successful we are as individuals and with the people around us, be they men or women.

For the record, I'm approached/approach nearly everyday by tier 1+2's who compliment my appearance or in conversation, describe that there is something very different about me. I do look after myself, and I've been hitting the gym consistently for years, though I owe the success of my training to a Sigma that I adore. He's really been the best influence in my life, and I'm very much a beta in his presence. Outside of that...now that I think about it, I'm likely more a Beta who aspires to be a Sigma. It makes sense to me, I want to be just like my best friend, maybe it's just happening gradually.

Good list. You're right: it's much more useful than the overly simple Alpha/Beta scale that Roissy uses.

Me: I started off as a naive, idealistic, optimistic Delta. I followed the politically correct 'nice guy' playbook, and thus unknowingly did everything wrong. As a Delta, I couldn't afford to do it wrong and I became a cynical Gamma after taking my lumps. Currently, I am sliding into Omega.

I'd like to add another couple of categories.
1. Men that migrate through most of the previously mentioned categories, displaying some or all features of one or more of the categories mentioned, depending on the company they are with, their mood, and how their life is generally going. I'd call this category 'Most Men.'
2. Snickering pseudo-intellectual berks that hide their social inadequacy and terror by seperating themselves from the social experience, observing everyone else and putting them into neat pidgeon holes that calm their tiny pea brains down and prevent them doing the one useful act they are capable of in this life; stuffing themselves down the nearest incinerator. I'd call this category 'You Lot.'

This makes a lot of sense.
I do find that the Alpha male does seem to be constantly trying to keep his place.
Much like Pissing on a tree, or humping other dogs. He seems to be very insecure that he will lose his place. I've run into a few alpha males that have actually gone so far as to have many other women on the side just to validate their own manhood... Pretty sad...
The betas seem to be a happier crowd, more secure with themselves, and aren't off screwing another woman in order to validate themselves.
We know plenty of gammas back in the office...

I'd actually have to disagree with the Alpha/Sigma rivalry. Sigmas have achievements and ambitions that, while incomprehensible to most, often do lead to hierarchical rankings (think music, writers, artists, programmers.) Alphas find us interesting as friends and conversation partners, recognizing in us the same drive, if not the same fashion standards.

It's the Betas who used their numbers to beat us up in high school and find our existence terrifying. The king doesn't stoop to such levels, indeed makes a point of greeting his castle's masons and armorers by name, and were we to have problems with his stewards, would provide us with immediate redress.

Would also mention for the commenter above: Sigmas would not be adverse to fighting in a war. Nor would we be bad at it. Patton was a Sigma, as was Rommel.

Anonymous said...

I'm intrigued by the 'sigma' description, I'm a female and have always considered myself a 'lone wolf' as i've never been interested in social position or climbing. At school i never belonged to one particular group preferring to drift. I did find in my younger years (around 11) that i was bullied by others for this reason, but then i seemed to become popular purely because i didnt care if anyone liked me or not. Even now after having left school quite a few years ago girls tell me how 'cool' i was at school, which really surprises me, i always thought the (Tier one women? Cheerleader types?) were the cool ones.

Anyway the most stand out thing i think about me was that i just honestly didnt care what anyone thought about me, at least not enough to endure having to follow someone or lead someone else.

Another interesting thing is i have always been able to attract alpha males but never wanted them. Attractiveness aside (if thats possible as a woman!), perhaps my 'unattainability' was what drove them to want me in the first place? I have 3 very close male friends who are all alphas (thus, we DO NOT hang out together lol) These men value my opinion more than anyone else. I notice other people will pander to them and 'tell them what they want to hear' where as i ALWAYS tell it like it is to them. Even when i am telling them something which is threatening to their ego, they don't scare me. My longest standing female friend is also an alpha female and same deal with her, she loves my sincerity.

Just wondering if there is any info on Sigma females? I've googled but to no avail :)

Anonymous said...

Just further ~ I wonder if my non-interest in dating alpha's is related to the Sigma's disinterest in social rank? I couldnt care less that an Alpha rules. They make awesome friends as they are exciting and fearless, but as far as dating i consider them as lacking in qualities like humility and compassion.

I will admit though to falling in love with an alpha a couple of years ago. That was a mistake for many reasons, and one which i will not make again! It was a buzz to 'control' a really powerful man (whilst he of course dominated me, he ultimately would take my advice on everything....I felt i could manipulate him into anything i wanted...so kind of makes me the one who had the power? ;)

Your beta species is both brutish and primitive, your arguments thick with thinly veiled rhetoric. you make a mockery of the universe and our interplanetary alliances- your simplistic dichotomies are laughable, your male crumudgeonry obvious, your cockshrivillary a result. your mastery of self touch is perhaps your only trait. bow down to our mastery.

after much study our superior species have come to a truth …that after several decades of self touch being the only sex these inferior beta men have, it leaves them confused, angry, lashing out like a blind man in a strip joint…or a hungry man in a little Debbie’s plant. your simple minds must understand this logic.

women of earth- stop attempting communication with these subspecies- they have hairy palms and have gone blind from many attempts at self massage- their leader DalCock, as we understand, is masterbating at this point and is too busy to approve our comments on his website; we will wait patiently while he finishes masterbating to gay porn and send our gentle reminders periodically.

Sigmas are confident on themselves, they're not influenced by Alphas but neither can Influence other people, they might get laid as often as a Delta (or even less) but since peer pressure doesn't really get to them they don't feel bad about it.

Alphas are confident too but their confidence depends on their acomplishments and their leadership so they tend to achieve much more than Sigmas (and get laid more often).

1st tier girls don't feel atracted to Sigmas, they consider them to be Under Achievers (wich they are)
2nd tier girls are their best match but they don't go for them because they prefer to have it easy with 3rd tier who consider them the best they could get after dealing wich so many Omegas and Gammas

I'm a on the Gamma category hoping I can make my way up to Delta maybe. haha sorry if it sounds like a lot of mambo jumbo but I definetaly think that there's a big difference between those who can lead people and those who can't and get rejected by everyone.

This made me think -

1. there's a bit of work that can be done by redividing the categories using a different 'number' of groups. You can change the dynamic of the list by increasing or decreasing the number of categories (since they represent, like colors in a spectrum, the more distinct parts of a continuum.) ABDGOSL is seven, which implies a motion of ascent. Seven is the number of perfection, meaning that in some way this list proves aspirational (like the seven virtues / seven vices for instance.) Since there are clearly different 'ranks' it does make some sense, but on the other hand, there are aspects to it such as the Sigma and Lambda which represent 'different' paths. I would suggest (just as a weird esoteric inkling) to add an eighth category such as 'Zeta' for the asexual.

2. With the seven, you can also correlate them with the seven heavens, or heavenly bodies:

Sol -> alpha
Luna -> beta
Mercury -> delta
Venus -> gamma
Mars -> sigma
Jupiter -> lambda
Saturn -> omega

This is not a special magic trick I just did it's just the prevalence of the pattern in sets of seven (gold/silver boy/girl happy/sad mysterious)

You might want to do some shuffling in the middle - lunar might better fit sigma because of the nature of eclipses, and given that Luna (as a general pattern for such bodies) does not revolve around Sol but has its own orbit.

Just poetic musings, take 'em as you will, Vox.

Cayto Nova said...

Was wondering where I might be on this social scale thing, simply out of curiosity, and was interested in some incite. I am a very physically attractive guy and this isn't me proclaiming that for myself. I've been told by countless females that would be 7 and up on the looks scale...and some comments from males too –shudders-. My family tells me so much it’s almost annoying. I'm not really sure where I am on that scale myself, but I'm very confident I'm pretty high up there lol. This is all a completely new concept and I find it all interesting especially this “game”; it never occurred to me there was a game to play, but it makes sense I guess. I mean I’d hear other guys talk about “spitting game”, but never took it seriously and thought of it as kind of loser-ish. However this seems different and real I guess.
19 years old and as I said before attractive, but I'm a virgin XD lol I know that probably screams beta or whatever, but hear me out. I'm very comfortable around girls; they find me mysterious, witty, interesting, funny, and definitely sexually appealing. I view them as equal to me in terms of their value and don't find them all that mysterious or complex really*despite what my father would have me believe* and I most certainly don’t idealize them. While I’m a guy that loves curves, nice sized breast, and gentle face, I am more interested in what a girl has to offer me emotionally, intellectually, spiritually. In general I quite like them, I enjoy the company of females...what's not to like? I’ve never had any serious trouble out of them. In fact I opted to just surround myself with girls in school quite a lot.
I've had 7 actual gf's and countless flirtation-ships, but never went past kissing as far as "sexual" activity goes. Why? Because...I don't know. I just didn't, not out of fear, and most certainly not because I didn't have the desire*Because oh god I did*, but it's like I just never got around to it I guess. Some relationships ended because they say "You're to mysterious, I can never know what you are feeling or thinking" or "I can never figure you out, and always I feel like you’re hiding something or about to break up with me”*in that case the latter was true sometimes*. When they would end it I was never really hurt all that much and quickly moved on, save one girl I really love that had move away.
In social circles: center of attention, people listen to closely, become a leader when I want to*naturally* sometimes unintentionally, people find me funny/interesting. Don't really like being around people all the time, bit of an introverted loner. Was like a phantom or shapeshifter in highschool, one moment really blending with the cool kids; the next I'm not feeling that and feel more at home with the nerds, then maybe the jocks. Was well know for this behavior, lead to nicknames: shadow, cat, spirit*all terrible I know*. People would go out of their way to get to know me sometimes; too bad they always tried when I was uninterested. Now days with my vocational training going on I'm just a loner.
Gotten into a lot of fights with supposed alphas*kicked their asses*. Has a sense of entitlement to freedom and does’t like someone trying to demonstrate their supposed dominance. Can tell I actually made a lot of those guys insecure, like my very presence unsettled them for some reason.

Likes to do what he wants and whenever in relationships. Sometimes wants to be the hopeless romantic, or not feeling that so much and is more stoic and cold. Sometimes a sex fiend, other times Mr. Dominant alpha*non abusive*. Likes disappear and be alone sometimes and not give contact. Girls find me hard to figure out, maybe it's unsettling to have no way to gauge or control a guy. I’m more interested in a life mate thing than pulling as many girls as I can and hitting it, not that I haven’t thought about being that way, because I totally think I could, but meh not what I’m looking for.*does sound fun I admit*

Cayto Nova said...

Hopefully my question didn't get lost in all that, but just in case. Where do you feel I fit on this social scale? I'm curious to know because from what I'm reading I don't seem to have any placement in it.

Cayto Nova said...

I had stumbled onto this place because I was looking up what I should do about a relationship I'm in. I'm in love with a girl and she loves me, but she's overweight and doesn't have a good self image. I feel like she would be really beautiful and as a fittness guy could help her lose weight, but kinda felt like I was shallow for wanting to do that. I found a lot of shallow garbage about attractive guys being insecure and weak "betas" or "gammas" or what have you if they went for "less attractive" women and like looks are all that matter about women, as if an attractive guy can't possibly be looking past looks or something is wrong with him. I wanted to figure out what the hell that was all about. I think trying to seriously compartmentalize people with such limiting labels is silly, but I like the idea of this cart here, I'm looking at it more like you would fun personality quiz than something truly valid or havning any real life application. Reading more closely though, maybe I'd be some type of sigma? lol

"Newsflash to anyone else who finds themselves reading through this nonsense: There's no such thing as "tier 1" women or men. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. A man from Ethiopia is going to have a different concept of "tier 1" beauty than a man from Denver. "

Said every unattractive, fat, repulsive, self deluding cunt ever.

A man from ethiopia would likely pick the white woman over one from his own country, as history has proven.

Bitch.

Why do women of rich men look alike?

Beauty being in the eye of the beholder is the word "pretty" lie that anyone could possibly have invented.

resorting to insult and simplification of reality is a symptom of insecurity. It's true, women are not trophies, and I pity that some people accept being liked for their money, what if they lose them and their trophy type girl along with it?
