I get to pick on you. You can't apologize and then say you're unapologetic .Doug wrote: ...and also go on record in disagreement with the definition he has listed. I am not trying to be contrarian,
For my part, I am un-apologetically Alpha.
I agree with you in that definition stuck out to me as well but it was silly enough that it wasn't worth my time. I also agree that an alpha male is very real, hard to define but you know when you are around it.
I keep reading these noble traits of leadership and although I admire them, I don’t think they are necessarily alpha.
Here's my best stab at it...
I've always thought of it more as a state of mind - natural or developed. An alpha is as he does. He lives his life as himself being his own mental point of origin with no real desire to defend or apologize for himself. He does what he wants. He's really not concerned with what others think of him or what he does.
'Alpha' is amoral and all in the application. I dont think its about leadership although many do become leaders. You can have an alpha drug dealer or an alpha business or church leader. An alpha that takes care of what he believes is his responsibility or an alpha who doesn't.
I'm probably lacking in my thoughts - hard to define really.
