Objective: Delta

Someone commented that we spend a lot more time talking about Gammas than Alphas despite the fact that the blog is named Alpha Game. That's true, and there is a good reason for it. First, as with VP, the focus of the blog has evolved over time. Second, there are no shortage of other blogs telling men how to increase their status, how to make themselves more attractive to women, and how to get laid more. But very few are doing much to help those on the bottom end of the male hierarchy, much less seeking to understand why they are there.

I don't like Gammas myself. And from what I've learned, most Gammas aren't too thrilled about themselves either. So, we both have a motivation to help them understand the factors weighing against them, helping them deal with those challenges, and giving them the means to increase their socio-sexual status so that they will become happier, better-adjusted men who are less annoying to those around them.

I've never forgotten the behavior of one Alpha who did not reject me when I was an Omega, and who, in his own blithe way, signaled to the social hierarchy that I was all right. Perhaps that is why, when I see a Gamma preening and posturing and generally making a complete ass of himself, I feel a desire to help him stop doing that, in addition to feeling the normal human urge to kick him.

Not everyone can be an Alpha. But nearly every man is capable of Delta. That's the real objective.

Good stuff, Vox. Our feminized society provides all the male shaming we need, thank you very much. We need to provide encouragement and education for our brothers whenever possible. Of course this sometimes includes constructive shaming, as opposed to the destructive kind men receive from this society.

"...so that they are less annoying to those around them."

This is the real reason, isn't it?

I often find myself feeling a great deal of sympathy for many Gammas and Omegas, though many Omegas I've observed are generally happy people in their own way.

I think this is because I could easily fall into their trap were it not for my own realization of God's salvation. It's humbling to realize that you are not as great as you might think you are and the best way to come to that realization is to have a come to Jesus moment.

I appreciate the focus. Besides learning about the SSH itself, the largest benefit I've received from reading this blog is the realization that there is no shame in being a Delta and working to improve your life within that context.

Please review what a Delta is again, or better, what achieving the objective looks like...

I judge a society by how it treats its deltas, its males between about the 20th and 80th percentiles. In that judgment our society fares poorly. Just to get women otherwise average who are not overweight, you're in beta territory. Thankfully most of the other things you might want aren't really part of a woman's market position.

"when I was an Omega"

Wha.....? Vox's full autobiography obviously remains to be written.

@ Panzerdude:

It's been covered before on this blog. I'd recommend reviewing the archive again if you haven't gone through it once already.

Delta Man had a pretty good series of posts which I'm failing to find, but here's one of his posts.

Thanks for help. Found this intro to Delta: https://alphagameplan.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-delta-perspective-intro.html

Good to see some honesty about yourself and an evolution of objectives. The remnants of an omega past have always been visible to the astute observer, and still are - mostly in the gut-level loathings and overcompensations, but also in the depth to which treatises about each hierarchical designation go. Ironically though, the least convincing are treatises about Alpha. Those read like a travel brochure by someone who's only seen the place on postcards.

@Samuel Nock

Yeah, that confused me too. But perhaps VD transitioned (heh) early, as a kid or a teen.

Then there's Scott Adams, who's only transitioning this year thanks to the Trumpening. Together with, I suspect, the abuse he's been getting from Gammas, which would also persuade him to abandon his former Gamma-like behavior.

VFM #7634 said...

(Transitioning, by which I mean, of course, Omega to Sigma.)

Steffen said...

Young men struggle to find their way, and modern society makes it more difficult to find the truth of matters through all the propaganda.

Introverted types frustrated with the pecking order shrugging it off and doing whatever they want to do instead - a functional response, but unfortunately humans are still social creatures, and the frustration remains.

Most Sigmas were Omegas through their formative years. If they weren't they would have been an Alpha.
I come from a large family. One brother is an Apex Alpha, the others are Deltas and Im a Sigma. All are older than me. My brothers formative years were marked by stability and normalcy. Due to familial circumstances mine were not. Most of my formative years were spent as an Omega. Despite the label I still had enough alpha like tendencies and charisma so that a handful of very cute and even hot high school girls liked me. The problem was that I was too fucked up in the head and weird to keep them interested for long.
My worst abuse in junior high came from gammas. Most alphas liked me. Having been an omega at one time my empathy for them is deep. For gammas its non existent.

Matt said...

Alpha sounds exhausting. People are far too annoying. And most women are far too unappealing.

Matt said...

Mountain Man agreed, I always got along with at least one Alpha each yeah in school. Usually the Betas as well. It was everyone else I just couldn't relate to. They just mqde no sense to me, the things they worried about.

Matt said...

It seems to me that many readers still imagine developing an IDGAF attitude makes them Sigma.

If no one wants you or cares that you're there or not, and women aren't pawing at you, you're not Sigma.

Lucas said...

I think the focus is great and it has helped me a great deal.

Keep up the good work, mate.

Shimshon said...

Did you creep women out at that stage? I knew a classic Omega in college, just as you describe in the SSH (the geek in me really wants to read that differently). Really creeped out all the women in our common social circle. Hard to imagine you in that role. He wasn't very intelligent though.

VFM #7634 said...

@Mountain Man

Your life history sounds extremely similar to mine, although my familial situation is considerably different. Father is low Delta, but was an Omega until his 30s. Two younger brothers, both Gammas. (The younger one self-diagnosed himself as a Gamma, but he's humble enough that he should become a Delta over the next few years.)

I only busted out of Omega in my late 20s after I had the worst infatuation in my life, and where of course I crashed and burned. I then worked myself up into Delta for a few years, but the Delta stage seems unstable for ex-Omegas who consistently get positive attention from top-tier women and as their confidence increases with every "so THAT'S how it's done". I'm only comfortable calling myself Sigma as of this year as it has become quite obvious that no Delta would be getting the quality of female attention and flings that I have, but my ability to socialize and bond with other men (IRL) remains extremely crappy.

@Shimshon

I am apparently physically attractive enough, and as an Omega I had a very baby-like expression. Girls were usually nice to me, but they'd get creeped out if I took any interest in them, or if I behaved in an odd fashion. Nowadays, I don't creep them out any more, although instead sometimes people (of both sexes) are a bit scared of me. I get told all the time that I look like a serial killer, in fact.

Matt said...

Vfm7634 youre not sigma.

VFM #7634 said...

Sure, Matt. You don't believe me and think I'm deluded, fine. But I'd be deluded if I didn't recognize that things have VASTLY improved over the last several years and are continuing to do so. If I'm not Sigma, I probably will be, barring death or a horrible accident.

Matt said...

You're just not getting it. You say you have a lot of female attention and yet you sound desperate for men to want to follow you so you can reject them. That's not Sigma. That's Gamma IV, Secret King of the Lands of Always Uninhabited.

VFM #7634 said...

and yet you sound desperate for men to want to follow you so you can reject them.

That doesn't even make any sense. At the very least it betrays a distinct lack of basic Christian charity. Why, is this something you find in a lot of Gammas you run into?

VFM #7634 said...

(And by "that", "it", and "this", I mean the attitude you described that I highlighted in bold, not your suggestion that I may have that attitude.)

Shimshon said...

@VFM #7634 This guy was fine around the men, and there was one woman in the group (who was very fat) who was sympathetic to him. But he was too earnest and tried too hard around the other women.

My experience with the same women was different. I was so shy that I was too afraid to express any overt interest. At the same time I was comfortable enough past the intro to build a friendly rapport with the women and was (in hindsight) quite good at flirting. It didn't hurt that I was also very good looking. That strong aloofness had an effect on many of them that confused me for decades...until I learned about Game.

Mooga Booga said...

Like Vox, I profited from the kindness of a generous alpha -- a whole string of them, actually. In time, I made myself into a pretty fair sidekick and chief of staff. Unfortunately, envy had a way of creeping in. It's one thing to suspect that someone, somewhere, is leading the life you want, but quite another to see someone doing it, knowing that proximity doesn't make his excellence attainable.

If I were creating a website aimed at deltas, I would couch most of my advice in negative terms. For example, we're not likely to dazzle anyone, but we can, given sufficient situational awareness, refrain from making asses of ourselves. We're not likely to dominate anyone, but we can learn not to get fucked over or taken advantage of. I'd also advise my disciples -- for lack of a better word -- how to find satisfaction in small triumphs without going the full gamma and distorting reality so as to crown themselves secret kings.

Matt said...

Sigma is a man who women want and nen want to follow. The Sigma wants only the women, if he wants anything. He does not want to lead. Alphas want to lead. Sigmas do not.

Pretty simple.
