Unsimplifying the simplified.

June 19, 2012

Started writing this on the 16th but other issues took me away from it and the legendary Dogsquat beat me to the punch here.

But i shall add my late post nonetheless.

Alpha     > looks after own needs and interests
Beta         > puts needs of others before his own
Omega  
> to serve others interests

no, not quite right. lets expand it.


Alpha     > primarily looks after own needs and interests to avoid being abused
Beta         > enjoys putting the needs of others before his own, even when his own interests conflict
Omega  
> lives to serve others interests the the exclusion of his own and is always looking for new ways to sublimate to others

getting better..

Alpha     > primarily looks after own needs and interests to avoid being used/abused but is willing to yield to the interest of another who has consistently proven they appreciate such ability and reciprocate in kind
Beta         > enjoys putting the needs of others before his own, even when his own interests conflict and is willing to accept/endure much personal sacrifice to self worth and dignity to placate others needs before own interests served
Omega  
> lives to serve others interests the the exclusion of his own and is always looking for new ways to sublimate to others and spends their life dreaming up new ways to serve/be used by others proactively

I think that’s about right.

It’s too easy to just think of alpha’s as people who take, use and think of no one but themselves first. You just have to earn it first. That’s where i’m trying to reach, balancing out when i feel like doing things for people vs. being unable to say no and get used.

Moving forward.

  1. I would also add that Omega’s can be exactly the opposite. Not doing anything for anyone and coming off not as the Alpha who’s time is valuable and he can’t get around to helping you or you’re not worth helping. But instead as that creepy guy in the corner who doesn’t do anything of note/value and wishes everyone would just leave him alone.


  2. Isn’t that the definition of a Sigma? Or am i confused.


  3. If you’re using Vox’s definition – sigma is basically a lone wolf, introspective alpha who doesn’t give a damn about leading because he hates it, but could if he wanted to


  4. I usually just ignore Vox’s definition. Usually it only complicates the discussion as countless socially awkward betas and omegas try and qualify themselves as sigma.

    Alpha is alpha.


  5. See that? Vox is a sigma. His definitions work perfectly – for him. Anybody else does it and it doesn’t work.,

    And nobody can figure out why….


  6. Legendary? Hah!

    I don’t even have gray hair yet!


  7. But you still have your hair good sir. Legends are not created by the passage of time, but by how far and wide the fable spreads.

    Legend has it i managed to hit 17 perfectly straight and long shots in a row at the driving range. Legend also has it i could never hit another one straight AND long in the same shot again since.
