Let’s talk today, about whether or not you’re a Sigma Male.
This article should remove any and all doubt, as to whether you are, or you’re not.
It’s recently come to my attention, that I personally am actually a Sigma Male (not an Alpha Male).
Odds are, a lot of you reading this (or at least those of you who’re subscribed to my YouTube channel), are ALSO Sigma Males.
Why is this? How can I make a claim like this?
In this article, I’ll tell you why.
Because people are naturally drawn to other people that are similar to them. This is just the way life works. So many of you who have been reading my blog for years now, I’m very VERY confident are Sigma Males…just like I am.
That’s a big reason why you read me, why you also watch my videos, and agree with my point of view on things, etc. So with all this said, many of you are going to identify with the points I’ll be outlining in this article.
Most of you reading this are aware of the difference between Alphas and Beta-males. I’ve done a couple of articles on this in the past. If you missed it, you can find the main one right there in that link.
I will go on record and say that I no longer agree with SOME of the claims I made in that article. This is a normal thing to occur after a long-enough period of time passes, by the way. Naturally…as a person evolves over time, SOME of their viewpoints will shift slightly.
That linked article is a perfect example of that. I’d say I still agree with about 80% of what I discussed in that article, however about 20% of it I now feel a little differently about.
You’ll know which points those are by the end of this article.
Alpha Males are highly confident, outspoken, and self-assured (self-centered men) who know deeply who and what they are. They go about their day-to-day lives, usually embodying characteristics of power, social status, frame, good game, and congruence (and can tend to have big egos).
Beta males, by contrast, are followers in the purest sense of the term.
Beta’s often also lack self-confidence and are easily swayed off center. They care deeply about what other people think of them.
They aren’t good with women…at least not in the sense that any sane, rational man would WANT to be.
Women still settle for Beta men when they reach their ”Epiphany” phase, usually because Beta men have a strong provisioning ability (meaning they tend to hold stable jobs, possess university degrees, and W2 wage-slave employment).
Beta’s are often even pretty good with money, and often own assets and various investments.
They tend to overcompensate in this area as a way to offset their deficiencies in the dating market, as well as their fitness levels.
Beta Males often are NOT the guys that are ripped and chiseled with square jawlines. Instead, beta’s usually dress like fucking nerds, because that’s often EXACTLY what they are: nerds.
Beta’s can be preppy nerds too though (and often are, think ”rich-kid Fraternity” types), so they encompass more than just 1 or 2 stereotypes that may be coming to mind for you right now
Now let’s talk about the 10 characteristics of Sigma Males:
Sigma males, from a coolness standpoint, are equal to alpha males, the major difference is in how they respond to social ranking, hierarchy, and ”titles”.
The major difference between Sigma Males and Beta males is the extent to which Sigma’s don’t care about what other people think of them…
So I’d say if you identify with 7, or 8 out of the following 10 points, then chances are you are VERY likely a Sigma Male…
1) Sigma Males Don’t Care About Their Social Standing, Social Status, Societal Norms, Or Social Hierarchies.
This is one of the top defining qualities of the Sigma Male, if not THE top-defining quality.
I personally identify VERY well with this one. I have never in my life, given two shits what people think of me, at least not from a ”social status” standpoint.
I don’t care if people like me.
I don’t care if people in general don’t perceive me as having a high social media status.
I don’t care enough to ever have to lie to someone about something regarding me.
I just don’t care.
I’m not trying to ”prove” anything to an overbearing, or abusive parent that I had growing up. I don’t need ”acceptance” from my one of parents, or older sibling/s, and am now therefore, spending my whole life trying to ”compensate” for it…
I know who I am, I know what I am, and I know what I like. I’m confident other people will also like me, once they get a sense of me (most other people).
I have enough personal reference experiences from my past that, collectively, I can draw these conclusions from, enough so that I know I don’t have to go ”out of my way” to get people to like me.
I know inherently, they’ll either like me, or they won’t.
And if they don’t, I simply don’t need to associate with that person. Usually, the people that don’t like me a fucking assholes anyway, so it works out. I’ve realized it works out this way at least 80% of the time.
2) The Sigma Male Thrives On The Ability ”Self-Manage”.
Sigma males especially HATE rules when those rules don’t make sense to them, or seem arbitrary.
There are certain laws, regulations, or rules that drive a Sigma male absolutely insane. A Sigma also gets very annoyed at stupid people, and people who seem to blindly follow authority, and are seemingly incapable of thinking for themselves.
Sigma’s don’t generally fit in well as W2 employees, because they operate much better independently than they do in forced groups.
Sigma males are rule breakers, rule benders, and make for horrible ”followers”.
Sigmas want flexibility and space. They operate best on their own when they have complete, total, and utter control over the work task, business, or matter at hand.
Sigma males are more prone to be risk-takers, business owners, and/or entrepreneurs.
This stems from their ability to think for themselves, and independently of other people.
3) Sigma’s Seek Their Own Passions, Ever-Expanding Knowledge, Skills, & Wisdom Every Single Day.
Sigma males define themselves by what they can get done, or build, NOT by the things they own (or other people’s opinions or perceptions of them…)
Sigma males absolutely THRIVE on getting shit done.
Nothing makes a Sigma happier, than accomplishing the things he cares deeply about, or things he knows NEEDS to get done. His own projects and goals are of the utmost importance to his day-to-day life.
A Sigma male may get depressed if he goes too many days without working towards his goals.
On top of this, he is often OBSESSED with attaining knowledge through books, podcasts, and just information in general.
4) Privacy & General Mysteriousness.
Sigma’s do NOT feel the need to constantly talk about their accomplishments or accolades.
Sigma males have a very hard time understanding why these things are so goddamn important to other people.
Sigma’s don’t get an ego boost from constantly boasting to other people about their accomplishments, they simply just don’t need exterior approval.
They know that as long as THEY know and believe these things to be true (about themselves), then that’s enough.
Their general disposition is that they are NOT approval-seeking…
This is one big difference between Alpha males and Sigma Males. Alpha males often WILL be pretty vocal about their accomplishments.
This is one reason why Sigma Males often do well with women.
Because Sigma Males tend to listen more than they talk, it’s much easier for them, like on a date, for example, to let the girl talk more about herself than he does about himself.
This works GREATLY to the man’s advantage, in this situation, because successfully attracting a woman is about 80% listening, and 20% talking. The less talking you do, the less chance you have of shooting yourself in the foot by saying something that could prevent you from bedding her.
The more talking you do, the more likely she is to place into a mental box in her head (one that can be very difficult for a guy to break out of).
There is a lot more ”mystery & intrigue” to the Sigma Male, in other words, than there is to the Beta or Alpha male.
People very often feel like it’s very difficult to get to know Sigma males, in large part because they’re confused by why Sigmas don’t feel the need to bolster about their accomplishments to the extent that other people do.
While this is good from the perspective that you won’t come off as ”self-absorbed”, it can sometimes HURT the Sigma-male, in the sense that other people don’t feel like they’re getting anywhere with you.
Other people can often go YEARS having actually known you (a Sigma Male), but still feel like they’re unwrapping interesting, complex, and unique characteristics about you. To some people, this could make them feel like you can’t be trusted.
What’s ironic about this, is that the exact opposite is actually true…as Sigma Males are often the most rewarding to connect with, befriend, and understand for people (once they finally DO get to know you).
At their core, Sigma Males don’t often have ulterior motives. They aren’t likely to become politicians (though they can), and by this very nature, they’re far less likely to engage in questionable trickery or manipulation.
There are exceptions of course, as there are with everything in life, but this is the generalized viewpoint.
5) Sigma’s Are Extremely ”Minimalistic”.
Sigma Males are often Rejecting societal expectations.
Sigma Males more often than not, don’t need material luxuries (unlike Beta’s especially), because they aren’t trying to overcompensate for anything.
Sigma Males don’t stress too much about the kind of car they drive, for example. They tend to set their own preferences on what they do and don’t like.
6) Sigma’s Need MUCH More Personal Space (Than Other People).
Sigmas have an absolutely INSATIABLE appetite for knowledge and information.
They will often seek this out at the expense of everything else in their lives.
If this sounds like you, then don’t feel so guilty about taking extra space or time away from people. Don’t worry too much about what other people might think of it.
Sigma males also should be careful not to isolate themselves too much, however, as in my previous article I stated this can cause you to lose touch with reality, and lead you to become a slave to your ego.
Richard Nixon, the former United States President, is a good example of a Sigma Male.
Nixon would often isolate himself. He’s is a prime example of a Sigma Male that took this too far, as his isolation (given the powerful, complex role he had), caused him to become paranoid, which led to his Ego getting the better of him.
This, of course, led to the 1974 Watergate scandal and his eventual resignation as U.S. President.
Sometimes Sigma Males can disappear for days on end.
The character of Don Draper, from the AMC show ”Mad Men”, was a quintessential example of a Sigma Male.
Don did not like to conform, he thought outside the box, and he didn’t care about his status or ranking within the company (unlike the Beta male ”Pete Campbell” did, or the more Alpha ”Roger Sterling”, for that matter).
Ironically, Don’s seeming disinterest in his rank led him to the top of that company anyway.
Now obviously…this is a fictional example, but I can’t think of a more perfect example of a Sigma Male, than Don Draper to be honest, or myself for that matter.
Often Sigma’s can get so wrapped up in their own personal projects that they’ll miss hearing about important world events that are going on.
I’ve personally been guilty of this one.
They just get completely and utterly fucking ENGULFED in what they’re doing.
Their blinders go up and they get completely obsessed with the road in front of them.
