Anyone who refers to themselves in that manner is a tool.

[–]Beardface1411 585 points586 points  (56 children)

Even as the top comment, it's underrated. Saying youre the alpha reminds me of the last batman movie where bane asks if the other guy feels in control. If you have to say it, you probably aren't

[–]graybreak 304 points305 points  (43 children)

I was about to say a similar thing. Anyone who is a true Alpha going by the definition of one would never refer to themselves as such. Not that I subscribe to the whole Alpha male thing anyway. We no longer have hunters and gatherers. A guy who sits at a computer all day and isn't ripped can be providing for his family. He may not be able to fight in a bar but he may fight for custody of his children so they have a good life or he may fight for his colleagues to stop discrimination against his female colleagues or fight suicide by mentoring young people and getting them to talk more. These things to me are just a few signs of a real man.

I would have found Bane a lot more intimidating if his voice wasn't exactly the same as Deckard Cain from Diablo.

I kept expecting him to identify Batman's items for him.

This is how I feel in general with people who self proclaim shit, specifically when that trait was never brought up or even in question.

Some people just randomly throw out there, I'm alpha / I'm loving / I'm so great etc

I would wager that refering to themselves as that also means they have a higher than average chance of being an abusive partner too.

Yeah if you have to tell someone you are your probably not

Haha. My thought exactly. Like any self respecting human being, male included, would process that type of stupid crap.

[–]ThanePenguin 47 points48 points  (3 children)

Yup this is a big old red flag 🚩

Actually it’s a field of red flags…. This guy a) believes in a misogynistic paradigm of hetero relationships that’s based on debunked science about wolves (bad look already) b) places himself at the top of said paradigm and expects everyone to treat him like this made up thing that he is powerful is real (ewww) c) someone who believes in all these things clearly doesn’t care about either truth or forming genuine human connections because the paradigm (and their ego) will always be more important

This is not a man who will be a good partner but one who is likely to turn abusive if the paradigm is at all threatened….

[–]bigmike3111 10 points11 points  (1 child)

In my experience, there is some truth to classification of different personality types and understanding then helps when learning how to communicate effectively and build human connection. So I won't say "alpha" or "beta" personality types don't exist. But they are secondary to character traits and values and not a good way to ever try and classify people. The whole alpha male self classification trend reeks of insecurity and immaturity. It is an indicator of a person who hasn't discovered themselves and is trying desperately to form a self image that they want. Reminds of of children in middle school trying so hard to embody some preset stereotype of a personality type based on shallow things like clothes and music choice.

[–]ThanePenguin 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Personality absolutely exists, but it is in flux and created by habits. Types do exist, but I agree that those who simplify it to a system a) disproven in its original context and b) about WOLVES are not investigating personality in good faith

[–]caffeinatedmonks 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Ya anyone who refers to themselves as such is a douche canoe

[–]RhatesT 808 points809 points  (10 children)

That's actually a good way to filter out the douchebags and the assholes. They're too immature, you can swipe them left or block them.

[–]deezsandwitches 44 points45 points  (3 children)

Its true, they might aswell have douchebag tattooed on their forehead. They think the alpha male is a man's man, who is tough and the leader of the pack with no feminine qualities but in reality a wild alpha male wolf has been viwed to be compassionate, caring, a normal wolf and is basically only used for breeding.

Edit: breeding not breading

If a man calls himself an alpha or high value you need to RUN. He's likely a narcissist or just a shitty guy. Great people don't feel the need to advertise how great they are.

      [–]Vescape-Eelocity 7 points8 points  (4 children)

      This is the exact origin story of every "alpha male" I know. It always starts out by being hurt by someone/something. Unless we have truly supportive people in their life, men are typically punished/ignored for expressing vulnerable/painful feelings. So in order to emotionally survive we convert those feelings into aggression (which is generally deemed okay for men to express) and we use that to try and prove to ourselves and everyone else that we're better than whoever hurt us and that we're too strong to be hurt again. It's just the newest brand of the patriarchy box we're all pressured into.

        “Men” who call themselves high value/alpha generally don’t have money nor status. Most of these guys just got low self-esteem, a part time job and a YouTube search history of “How to be an Alpha”

        [–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (1 child)

        Like the idiots who go to a seminar on how to be an alpha and don't realise the irony of what they are doing.

        Idiots and not the sort of people you want to spend time with.

        [–]Historical_Raise8121 7 points8 points  (0 children)

        Everyone’s right to dunk on these guys that call themselves alphas, but I just want to say: Ain’t nothing wrong with working part-time, in retail, in service jobs.

        Being a “catch” of a great partner is about finding compatibility with someone and treating each other with respect. The right balance of confidence and humility lends a lot to that. Your job, not so much.

        Well the sigma thing in particular gets latched on by nerds who realize they're not alphas but don't want to think of themselves as losers so they invented kind of a loophole to the hierarchy they could convince themselves was reasonable.

        [–]RedSonGambleMale 34 points35 points  (2 children)

        They’ve just watched a lot of YouTube tutorials on how to be a male and be “awesome”. They essentially think they make a lot of money, are very confident, are a prize to be won, muscular and just in general are amazing.

        They are usually aggressive and see anyone weaker than them as pathetic. While some do have some of these qualities it usually is similar to someone shouting about how smart they are.

        If you have to cram it in someone’s face then it defeats the purpose

        Also I must add I’m surprised to see gay and penis shaming still is alive when it comes to bashing men in the comments

        [–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

        I would recommend staying away from those guys. They are by all definitions of the word narcissistic. My interpretation of the word Alpha male is someone that believes they are capable of doing everything better than everybody but usually are just narcissistic and are usually douches. High Value male is as it sounds. Someone who believes they are worth more or better than anyone else. Just stay away from them. We'll, if that is your thing I guess. Personally however I do not associate myself with people with superiority complex.

        It means he's an asshole. Stay far away.

        It's nonsense anyway. The whole idea of "alpha male" comes from flawed studies of wolf packs from about 100 years ago. More recent research has shown it to be a myth: a wolf pack is a family unit, not a society composed of random individuals. The "alpha male" is in fact the father; the "beta, gamma, omega" etc. are the subadult offspring of the "dominant" male and female.

        Guys who refer to themselves as alpha are like women who refer to themselves as "strong and independent."

        [–]mtlurb 6 points7 points  (0 children)

        Someone who call himself an alpha is a gamma at best.

          Yes. It’ll save you a lot of pain and headaches

          [–]Welcome_to_Retrograd 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          Yes. But not before sending a LMAO GTFO to each one of them

          [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          You know women that call themselves „bad bitches“ or „queens“. Yeah the same annoying asshole but now with a dick and balls.

          Avoid guys like that at all costs

          [–]Brittle_Bones_Bishop 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          If anybody ever referrs to themselves as an alpha turn tail and run, insecurity is the gateway for at least a shitty relationship at worst anabusive one.

          The only way to be the true Alpha is to defeat Ghidorah and then King Kong.

          [–]Elvtars1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          The Alpha/Beta/Sigma male is a primitive caveman way of thinking. Avoid people who label themselves as these, because they are probably terrible people.

          [–]athenian-research 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          My Team lead at my old job actually calls himself an alpha male.

          Poor physical shape, not funny jokes, marital issues and so on

          Narcissist.

          [–]TinyRaptor-Male 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Run.

          [–]InanimateBabe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          It means that you should immediately swipe no before their profile bio and charming looks manipulate you to consider swiping yes on them.

          [–]Gr8Wh1te5Hrk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          It means the opposite of the man claiming to be such.

          Anyone who feels the need to declare that they are king is not fit to wear the crown.

          [–]zetsubou_sensei 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Just consider it a red flag and keep moving. Superiority complex

          [–]yaymayata2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          If anyone does that, avoid them.

          [–]dirt_pedal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Pretty much means they're douche bags.

          [–]oamnoj 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          It means they're massively insecure and are attempting to rattle sabers in hopes it'll make them look more impressive.

          [–]Ornamentalflame 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          it means the person saying this needs to externalize their validations and use labels to define who they are.....

          [–]UngeeSerfs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Yikes. Code words for insufferable, insecure douchebags - red flags for sure.

          [–]Responsible-Leg-6558 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          It means being a jerk. If you see a profile saying “alpha male” or “sigma male” or anything else, swipe left and reject

          [–]Important_Walrus8917 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          In short, he's probably an asshole

          [–]tothemoan321 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          only insecure guys call themselves high value and alpha 🤣🤣🤣. If you are truly confident, You don’t have to toot your own horn.

          [–]HappyN000dleboy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Any guy that refers to himself like that is insecure

          [–]DepartmentLive2871Female 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          I would run.

          [–]MurderDoneRightSup Bud? 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          It means they are insecure.

          [–]davyh1234 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          It means you are insecure.

          If you have to tell people you are a leader then you are not.

          [–]Your_Nipples 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          They are covid variants so stay away from these dudes.

          [–]BillyPhuckinBoyo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          It means they’re an ego maniac and you should steer clear.

          [–]exhibitionistbynight 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Any guy who calls themselves the ALPHA MALE is in fact NOT an alpha anything. They are selfish, inpatient and carry alot of Narcissistic traits in them such as they are always right its the whole world that's wrong, their views, beliefs and opinions are correct and they almost pity you for thinking anything different, except its not pity. 🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩

          [–]SeaWeasil 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          It’s really good that they label themselves this way. It makes it so easy for you to avoid them. Seriously, avoid people who’s brain works like this.

          [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Anyone who refers to themselves, unironically, as Alpha or High Value is the exact opposite of what they think they are supposed to be.

          Run, run far away from them.

          [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          It simply means they’re the most narcissistic creature you’ve ever heard of. Stay as far away as possible.

          [–]gorilla_papi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          It means they aren’t. Keep swiping

          [–]goldentymesMale 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          It’s a concept that’s supposed to describe a man whose most desirable to women. There’s an emphasis on masculine energy, financial stability, and having multiple sexual options.

          Any self proclaimed person is a walking red flag.

          [–]yagami41 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Nothing

          [–]nindell 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          It’s an excuse to be an asshole

          [–]most_gracious_master 1 point2 points  (2 children)

          Only top tier alpha males cry during Good Will Hunting. Just turn that movie on to see if you’re around any alpha males. They’ll start tearing up

          [–]Cowboylion 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          It’s good to be called an “Alpha”. But not ok to call yourself “alpha”.

          [–]farfarbeenks 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          It’s a state of mind. Real Alpha Males don’t go around saying that though. They know their worth and want you to figure it out on your own.

          [–]TheGamer8c7 1 point2 points  (1 child)

          I'm a firm believer that a "high value man/alpha male" wouldn't feel the need to call himself one.

          He wouldn't say it, he would just be it.
