What characteristics define an alpha male in your opinion?

I'm thinking everyone has different ideas of what makes an alpha male.  I'd like to see everyone's opinion.

If you lack reading comprehension, you're beta.  I'm asking what others think. I already know what I think.  Cute try though. blushing

Nah but on the real tho, the alpha male to be is the one that establishes himself as the leader, as the dominant one, as the BOSS(ROSS!) basically.

For examples you can look at Kobe Bryant. No one can tell dat nigga shit on the Lakers. He runs the team without question and he will make sure all his teamates are aware of that.

I kind of attach negative terms to it also tho, such as being aggressive and inconsiderate. Like can alpha males be "nice guys" for the lack of a better term? Can they impose "calm dominance"? Do they always have to be in the forefront or can they let themselves fall back? Can they "luv dem hoes"?

Like Ceasar and Malcolm X were alpha males no doubt, but were Jesus and MLK too? Uhmmm. #ThingsToPonderAboutOnHB
Good question.   And that's why I asked how others view the whole "alpha male" thing.

This is closer to my line of thinking. But the whole "alpha" slang term doesn't seem to fall in line with this.  In real life, sometimes you're the alpha, and sometimes you're not.  In my own group I'll be the alpha.  In someone else's group I'm new to, I'm the new guy so I'm not the alpha.  When I'm at work, in my team, I'm the alpha. When we meet with the CEO, I'm no longer the alpha.  

But I think that the alpha craze is more about characteristics more than being a leader because a lot of self proclaimed alpha males are compliant and subservient as hell.

This is what i've been saying. It's especially popular online when the topic is either bodybuilding or getting bitches. I just imagine these greasy lil nerds trying to pretend they are the shit outside their online life every time i read someone using the term.

never seen anyone IRL refer to themselves as an alpha so outside of discussion boards this term doesn't even exist unless you're in a sciences class. no such thing as being an alpha in the human world alphas are just people that go and get what they want not sit around.

true but most dudes who claim to be Alpha are only using that term in a one dimensional way. Either for getting bitches (usually this) or bulking up (usually for the roid heads). You will never hear a nigga say "Im alpha because I just helped build a new school around my way" or "Im alpha because I created a new technology to find cancer in it's early stages". It's always about being the man and shitting on and one-upping the next guy by either fucking more bitches then him or being more buff then him.

Humans are animals, it literally means the same thing as being an alpha male in a pack. Think of the alpha lion. He is the leader, he is the most physically fit, he gets females whenever he wants, and he is what the other males aspire to be. Means the same thing when referring to people.

Nah. I don't know about you, but there is no other man I aspire to be. Not even my dad.

you mean alpha wolf? lion prides already only have one male and the rest are females. 

alpha just means you're the leader. the number one. it does have negative connotations because it implies you have a big ego and can't give up control of anything. but i think the appeal of being alpha outweighs that. 
January 31, 2013 @ 19:50:58
^ no I meant lion (even though wolfs are a good example). As in only a lion that is alpha would be able to have and maintain a pride. Lions that are not either die or hunt for themselves.

Would you say that this is based on which crowd the person is in?  Cuz, I mean, Zyzz is cool, but I'm not sure if a guy like Bill Gates aspires to be like him.   And I'm guessing Rick Ross is a leader, but he's not physically fit.

More like someone who doesn't repeat the same lame attempt at an insult.  I can tell who the lurkers are on HB. Always imitating old HB ether methods.  Never pulling it off properly.  :|
