A couple weekends ago, I came back to my apartment with some female friends to watch a movie. I went into the kitchen, and one friend said, “Uh…is that a big bug on your ceiling?”The instinctive Game-related interpretation of this situation would be to read it as a conventional test. Whereas the BETA will leap at the opportunity to demonstrate his servile willingness to provide services on the off-chance that this will make him appear more attractive to the cowardly woman, the Alpha understands that doing her such a service will only be a display of low value and render him a utility tool in the woman's eyes.
I looked up at the ceiling and didn’t see anything. Then I looked where she actually meant, and there, sitting on the vent, was a cockroach that was maybe 2 1/2 inches long. My friends immediately wanted to find a guy in the building to kill it. I suggested a neighbor who I was pretty sure was male (judging by the chubby guys I had seen entering with bottled beer on another occasion), so my friends ran over to recruit his services. Alas, he was not home.
The Sigma, on the other hand, will cheerfully agree to help the woman out, but only, as he explains to her with a slightly unsettling smile, because he "likes to kill". Bonus points if he asks her if seeing things die turns her on, triple bonus points if she backs away wide-eyed, retracts the request, and flees. Women like dangerous men; notice how supervillains are always surrounded by attractive and extremely obedient women.
