For Characteristics #’s 7-11 (Bonus # included), then read on below…
7) Unique Passions.
Sigma males have an incredibly strong, resilient mindset.
Sigmas can be amazing leaders, but they don’t seek these roles out for their own sake, and when they have them, they don’t always like or enjoy being in these positions…
Managing other people can be exhausting to them.
They find it particularly exhausting when the people they’re trying to lead, don’t care about the task at hand, to anywhere NEAR the extent that a Sigma does.
Customer service, to give a very specific example here…can be incredibly frustrating to Sigma Males.
Customer service is often something characterized (or made up of) people who are employed and are only working hard enough not to get fired.
Of course, not all customer service reps are like this, but many of them (these days), are unfortunately.
Since many sigma males are often business owners, they look at everything in life through the lens of a business owner, even looking at and treating their own lives as if it were a business.
So sigma males can have an extremely high bar for what they expect out of other people.
They hold themselves to an incredibly high standard, and when other people clearly do not hold themselves to a similar standard, it can drive a sigma male nuts.
Sigma’s feel they get more done on their own (and they usually do).
Their passions reign supreme above everything else.
8) Sigma males have a ”Lead By Example”, leadership style.
Sigmas are lone wolfs 1st and foremost, in the truest, purest sense of the term. However, they can also possess an absolutely exceptional ability to lead others at the same time.
Because Sigma Males are so obsessive about their mission, they inspire and motivate other people in incredible ways.
Other people see and observe the passion sigma males have for their craft, or whatever it is that particular sigma is fired up by and that passion tends to ignite its own fire inside them for the things they love and care about.
They often don’t need to lead any other way, the example they set is more than enough to ignite change and action in followers (or those under them).
A Sigma’s passion and energy is extremely contagious.
I know I’ve stated this already but it bears repeating: Sigma’s don’t care about ”Titles”, and/or their general social standing. This can often go to the extent that it becomes even a detriment to them.
Sigmas may care very deeply about their social standing as it specifically pertains to the mission they have, or the goal/project they’re trying to carry out.
In other words: if achieving a high social standing, will help them to reach or accomplish their goal, then for THAT reason, they may care deeply about that social standing.
The point here is that there’s a specific reason they care about it, they don’t just care about a high ”social status” for its own sake…
Most Sigma Males value freedom & independence above everything else in life.
The Sigma Male DOES NOT want to be held down, contained, or controlled.
He will stop at absolutely nothing to achieve (and then hold onto) his freedom.
He hates the idea of being ”beholden” to another person, or entity.
He craves the freedom and mobility to come and go as he sees fit, without feeling like he’s handcuffed to a life situation or circumstance.
This is often why Sigma Males are more likely to not tie themselves down, entrap themselves, or engineer life situations where they won’t be able to move rapidly.
In fact, to the contrary, sigma males sometimes engineer life situations, that embody the exact opposite of these scenarios.
Often, they won’t even consciously realize they’re doing this, until YEARS later (when looking back at their lives in hindsight).
Sigma Males, in this respect, see the game of life like a chess board, they are always thinking 5-6 steps ahead, planning their next moves in ways that allow them the utmost freedom.
9) Sigma Males Are Introverted but Still Confident.
I used to get called ”shy” when I was a kid. This never sat well with me.
For years, I could never understand why it bothered me so much. I know now, that the reason this was the case, was because it just wasn’t entirely true.
I knew that other people just didn’t understand me. They (my family and friends) in other words, felt the need to put me into some kind of ”box”.
I always knew I was more complex than anything their ”box” could categorize me as.
As I got older and understood myself better, all these confusing memories from my past came clearly into focus. Every decade that I’ve gotten older, I understand myself and my past better and better.
The better you understand who you are and why certain events in your life unfolded the way they did, the better equipped you are to handle the present and the future.
As a young boy, I was simply introverted.
If this is yet another point on this list I’ve been outlining here that you identify with…then it’s another STRONG indication you’re a sigma male.
By the way:
Sigma Males are FAR more likely to be introverts than they are extroverts.
Just because someone is introverted, doesn’t necessarily mean they are shy.
Sigmas aren’t afraid of their own company, or their thoughts.
They aren’t afraid to ask themselves the hard questions most Alpha’s and Beta’s are.
Sigmas tend to spend a lot of their time alone.
They often feel like other people don’t understand them. Though I’d say this particular characteristic is more common when a Sigma male is younger, it’s often still a feeling that surfaces in adulthood.
Sigmas are extremely observant, and they always listen more than they talk.
Sigma Males tend to not necessarily love the sound of their own voices. Those that do love the sound of their own voice, tend most often to be Alphas.
10) Sigma’s Maintain Certain Kind Of Lifestyle.
Lifestyle, including daily and weekly habits, and routines are crucially important to a Sigma Male.
If you are one, other people probably have a hard time trying to change the way you live your day-to-day life.
Sigmas resent and will push away someone that tries to control them. They cannot STAND having to be confined to what someone else wants from them.
This is not as selfish and self-centered as it sounds (though Sigma Males can certainly be guilty of that).
Sigma Males at their core, are simply true to themselves, first and foremost.
In certain ways, Sigma males just cannot fool themselves in the ways that other people often fool themselves.
The best example of this I can think of, is how Sigma Males are often honest and truthful.
You know how there are some people you meet in life…that just have that ability to embellish, stretch the truth, or just flat-out lie about things?
This is something both Alpha’s and Beta’s do often, that Sigma males don’t.
Sigma males, rarely, if ever do this.
They know there’s no point to it. They feel like other people can see right through lies like this.
Either that, or they themselves know they could see right through lies like that (that Alpha’s and Beta’s tend to spout off), and since they can spots those lies right away, they feel like other people would be able to also.
11) Sigma Males are more ”divergent” than Alphas & Betas.
Sigma males are uncommon and don’t ”fit-in”.
Sigma males more often step outside of their comfort zones and are often VERY hard-working.
Women love them. Unstable women who are more prone to personality disorders, tend to be more drawn to Alpha’s, whereas women with a little more stability and wits about them, tend to be drawn more towards Sigmas.
Sigmas also are better paired with women who don’t need constant attention, and/or validation.
Sigma’s truly value their own solitude, but they can still turn on the charm and charisma when needed (again, think Don Draper…).
Sigma males are silent leaders: Introspective, self-reliant, & often very complex & complicated, yet extremely simple at the same time.
They are extremely persistent (sometimes to their detriment), as their obsessions can sometimes ”de-rail” them.
As an entrepreneur especially, one must be able to be malleable and adaptable.
Sigma Males cannot fucking STAND ”power dynamics” imposed on them by social hierarchy or norms.
They don’t feel the need to compete against other people, they more often only care about competing with themselves.
Their own energy is of utmost importance. They are ”Dominant Introverts”.
Sigmas HATE living life safely, often opting instead towards taking well-calculated risks, to drive their own projects forward.
Alpha males are ALSO more prone to risk as well, whereas Beta-males are risk-averse.
Even though Alpha’s are also prone to risks, the biggest difference between alpha’s and Sigmas, is in how well thought-out or ”calculated” these risks are…
Alpha’s more often take UN-calculated risks, like drinking and driving, or starting a bar fight for example.
As stated, Sigma Males are both very complex, but very simple all at the same time.
In certain respects, sigmas are extremely simple/straightforward, while in others they are deep and complicated.
Sigmas are extremely self-aware. Insanely self-aware.
They know themselves intimately well. They are often in their own heads, trying hard to optimize their weaknesses (most of which they’re acutely aware of from a young age).
They have a knack for breaking things down into linear steps. They are solution-driven above all things.
So…are you a Sigma Male? Let me know in the comments below.
Thanks for reading.
Until next time…
