Alpha

The Alpha Buddah, Corey Worthington.

What I’m about to type here is not going to make me any new friends. I know because any discussion of what constitutes Alpha characteristics in a Man always becomes clouded by the self-perceptions of how well we think we align with them. As I’ve covered in prior postings, the ‘community’, the ‘manosphere’, the new understanding of gender relations that’s picked up momentum for the last 12 years has always generated it’s own terminologies for more abstract concepts. The danger in this is that these terms lack real, universal definition. For purposes of illustrating a concept these terms are usually serviceable – we have a general understanding of what makes for a ‘Beta’ or a Herb, or a man who falls into a ‘provider’ mentality. Even ‘Alpha’ in a specific context is useful as an illustrative tool, when the subject isn’t directly about ‘Alpha-ness’. It’s when we try to universally define what constitutes Alpha that the sparks start to fly. So before you continue on reading further, think about what you believe makes a guy Alpha. Got it in your head now? Good, now put all of that aside, purge that from your head, and read the next few paragraphs from the perspective that you don’t know anything about Alpha.

I was first introduced to the Alpha Buddah courtesy of Roissy and this post “Umm, sorry?” You can go ahead and read this from the Chateau’s perspective, and I think the analysis is pretty good. I call Corey the Alpha Buddah not in the hopes that men will aspire to his almost Zen like ‘being’ in Alpha, but rather to provide an example of Alpha in it’s most pure form. He literally IS Alpha, unclouded by pretense, afterthought, or conscious awareness of any influence that could have a hope of prompting introspection about his state.

Corey Worthington is a piss poor example of a human being, but he’s a textbook example of Alpha. I could use a lot of adjectives to describe this kid, but “beta” wouldn’t be one of them. What’s funny, and a bit ironic, is this kid has probably never come across Mystery Method or “the community” or even heard of ‘peacocking’ and he gets naturally what millions of guys pay small fortunes at PUA seminars to acquire over the course of a lifetime. He’s a selfish little prick, but what makes him insulting to ‘normal’ men is his having the natural, internalized Alpha bravado so many AFCs wish they had. If you could bottle and sell this Alpha essence, you’d be rich beyond imagine.

Right about now all of those self-affirming preconceptions you had about Alpha-ness (that I told you to stow away before reading this) are probably yelling to be let out of the mental box you put them in. “,..but, but Rollo, how can you possibly think this arrogant douchebag kid could ever be an example of anything remotely Alpha?!” You’ll be pleased to know I fully empathize your outrage. You work hard to be a “better man”, you put in the self analysis, you paid your dues coming to terms with unplugging and reinventing yourself. You’re a success, Corey is fuck-up. Corey’s not a better Man than you are, however, he understands Alpha better than you do.

Alpha is mindset, not a demographic.

Alpha is as Alpha does, it isn’t what we say it is. There are noble Alphas and there are scoundrel Alphas, the difference is all in how they apply themselves. There’s a tendency to approach every “Alpha” argument from what a guy thinks is righteousness; ergo, his personal definition of Alpha is what appeals best to his sense of virtue. He earned his Alpha cred, played by the rules, and by God people (women) should respect that. However, the sad truth is that prisons are full of Alpha males who simply channeled their drive toward destructive and anti-social endeavors. There are plenty of examples of indifferent Asshole Alphas who you wouldn’t say are upstanding moral leaders at all, yet women will literally kill each other (or themselves) in order to bang them because they exude a natural Alpha-ness. Just as Corey does here. There are Alpha drug dealing gang leaders, and there are Alpha husbands, fathers and leaders of industry. It’s all in the application. Genghis Khan was Alpha as fuck, and a leader-of-men, but probably would be on most people’s douchebag list for that era. Here’s an illustration:

 

Guy’s like Corey infuriate men who have invested their self-worth in the accomplishments of what they think ought to be universally appreciated and rewarded. So when they’re confronted with a natural Alpha being undeservedly rewarded for brazenly acting out of accord with what they think the rules ought to be, they seethe with resentment. The natural response in the face of such an inconsistency is to redefine the term ‘Alpha’ to cater to themselves and their accomplishments as “real men” and exclude the perpetrator. The conflict then comes from seeing his new definition of Alpha not being rewarded or even appreciated as well as a natural Alpha attitude and the cycle continues. Your respect (or anyone else’s) for an Alpha has nothing to do with whether or not he possess an Alpha mindset. 3 failed marriages and 100+ lays has nothing to do with his having or not having an Alpha mindset. There are many well respected betas who’ve never had a passing thought of infidelity, or may have 300 lays either with prostitutes or because they possess fame or stunning good looks and women come to him by matter of course.

The take home message here is that you are not Alpha because of your achievements, you have your achievements because you are Alpha. You possess a mindset you either had to develop or it came naturally to you. I constantly field questions from young men asking me whether some action or behavior they displayed to a woman was Alpha, or Alpha enough. The real answer is that Alpha behaviors are manifestations of an Alpha mindset. And just like Corey the Alpha Buddah, the introspect required to wonder if something was or wasn’t Alpha wouldn’t ever be a consideration enough to ask. You almost need to have a childlike understanding to really appreciate what Alpha really is. Kids get Alpha. Even the picked on, introverted, beta-to-be kid has a better understanding of Alpha than most adult men do because he lacks the abstract thinking required to rationalize Alpha for himself. Most men, by our socialization, and to varying degrees, lose this in-born Alpha mindset over time. The naturals, the Corey’s of the world, have a better grasp on it’s usefulness and repurpose it; either to their adulthood advantage or their detriment.

or you can invest in actually acquiring high sexual market value and watch the money and pussy fall into your lap. The incontrovertible fact that money is an attractiveness trigger is barely and weakly argued against on PUA blogs. The argument against it is not that money is not an attractiveness trigger, it’s that for some people with some sexual strategies in some parts of their life don’t really need it. Which is true. Is this all about where your style of alpha rates in the world? Does it irritate you that women go for men who you deam low… Read more »

I can’t help but get the impression that some people are against knowingly and deliberately and specifically being charming and seductive by any means other than becoming a high value male under the definition that meets their personal view of their self, and are against talking about it and are against teaching it.

This was a thought provoking post, Rollo; especially the Venn diagram. Thank you for all of it. Being the man I am (focused on results benefiting personal improvement), I find it most efficient to simply define Beta and avoid such behaviors. In short: I never worry if my choices are Alpha – on occasion, I worry if they’re Beta. This may seem like splitting hairs but, in practice, I find it a path much more readily traveled. I doubt myself far less than I would otherwise. Also, the real issue at heart (regarding female relations) is that Beta behavior is… Read more »

Jesus Christ….how about we all just whip our dicks out and measure to see who gets the final word on alpha. Frankly, I think it was nailed right here: The classic example of defining, say, “courage” is the golden mean between two equally malignant vices, which are “rashness” and “cowardice.” Alpha is the golden mean between indifference (sociopathy/solipsism) and over-investment (beta obsequiousness/dependency). So rather than having a single opposite, like a two-dimensional virtue, alpha lies at the center of many opposites, like an interior focal point of a multi-dimensional sphere.

I think what some have been saying here is getting pussy/getting laid is the wrong focus for “being alpha”. Being alpha precedes the getting pussy part. That said, I don’t think a person can just imagine up in their head their own personal fantasy of alpha, and for example if they can’t pull redefine alpha to suit their own circumstances.

You guys have already agreed that an alpha frame is attractive. So there seems to be no disagreement that alpha traits can be described accurately as traits that are attractive to women.

You just don’t want to be consciously aware that alpha traits are attractive to women, and don’t want to know if some traits are not attractive. Because you just want to “be yourself”.

You have a platonic notion of alpha as a thing. I have a functional notion of it of a thing that does something. My reason to use the concept is functional, and only functional. It has meaning only in relation to the function. I use the word as part of a toolbox of tools to do a specific thing. I mentioned from the beginning.

Alpha translates to dominance, resources, power, power, power. And ultimately it expresses through behaviors / traits. But its all 100% functional.

This is why I entered the conversation suggesting a different term. People have specific attributes in mind when they say alpha. But seduction is not always about those attributes. Seduction needs a term that means all the qualities that women are attracted to, and how they are displayed attitudinally. Seduction requires that term. It is already currently social convention to use the term alpha for that. I’m sure you don’t disagree. That’s how it is commonly used and generally accepted to be used. The concept needs a word. So put aside your idea of alpha, when you want to join… Read more »

The easiest way to seduce women is being an attractive high value guy and let them fight for you. You put the effort on being that high value guy, they put the effort of jumping on you lap.

The other way is to go on each one individually and convince them you are one they would like to fight for. Then strong legs for running when the shitstorm comes.

I don’t see how or where or why you are disagreeing with the definition of alpha traits being the traits that are attractive to women.

Draw two circles. In one circle put all the traits that are sexually attractive to women. Label that circle olpha.

In another circle put all the traits that you consider alpha.

Do the two circles coincide 100%?

“Oh ya, and I can’t wait for you to come up with an example of how the olpha can’t get the same women that your alpha can, with detailed examples of why.”

Women are attracted to the leader of the men´s group, the most valuable guy in the room, the guy every other man looks up to, the man every other man wants to (or dreams to) challenge. Being that man = Alpha.

You said you dont care about that part… so you tell me.

You are deliberately obtuse.

You just described the olpha. You KNOW you did. You did it on purpose.

You obstinate cunt.

You use an attraction based definition of alpha to argue that using an attraction based definition of alpha is not accurate.

You’re just dumb.

No. This is not a definition based on attraction:

“the most valuable guy in the room, the guy every other man looks up to, the man every other man wants to (or dreams to) challenge. Being that man = Alpha.”

But attraction what girls feel when they see that guy.

So, answer please. How is Olpha going to generate the same level of attraction as that guy.

Do you have bitch tits? You show no evidence of a testosternonized brain. Logic completely eludes you.

It’s pointless to talk to you yohami. Simple logical statments elude you. You are a man without the faculty of rationality. I’m done wasting my time with you.

King A said: “There is a certain virtue to mastering the basics so well that you can bust thousands of men out of their betatude. None of us have what he has. But it’s still just the basics.

What the fuck is an “olpha”?

You can’t make up words and treat them as sufficient arguments.

Your indignation is clouding your thinking. Who has time for to correct for your weird and random outbursts? I’m amazed at Yohami’s stamina.

King A What the fuck is an “olpha”? You can’t make up words and treat them as sufficient arguments. For the purposes of attraction, an attraction based concept of alpha is sufficient. That’s my premise and if you want to argue against my idea of alpha/olpha, argue exactly against that. I’m not arguing against your idea of alpha. You can have any definition of alpha that you want. I’m supporting the current usage of alpha on PUA forums, and in supporting it suggested the new use of a new term, in order to avoid battling over what alpha really means.… Read more »

I don’t see what’s so evil about this Corey guy. He had a party, it got out of control, he didn’t actually do any of the vandalism. And he said he was sorry he just wasn’t willing to grovel and humiliate himself. I expected him to be way worse than he was in that video by the description.

But see, really it’s the ‘everyone’ who hates on the alpha that is in the wrong unless he’s seriously hurting people. Betas have no sense of self and find their identity in the group, whatever the majority’s values are. No one should be persecuted for being themselves. That’s why some call these type of people ‘sheeple’.

Who’s dropping the ten-paragraph posts on us now? xsplat wrote: “I’m supporting the current usage of alpha on PUA forums… That is nonsensical. Alpha is a borrowed term from a much older concept, a concept your interlocutors are trying to reestablish around the smaller context of sexual conquest. Your forced neologism reminds me of the nerdish taxonomy of Vox Day, who was too cool for the three-part alpha-beta-omega distinctions and had to expand them into a dozen categories, like Gamma and Sigma and Lambda and all kinds of irrelevant, inexplicable, confusing jargon that nobody uses except him. We don’t have… Read more »

I take it that you are granting that the concept of olpha is meaningful, useful, and logically consistent for the purpose defined. Your concept of alpha, in case you didn’t notice, must logically be a limited subset of olpha. Certain attractive traits are valued above others, and only those subset of attractive traits get to be labelled as “real alpha”. Of course PUAs discuss amongst themselves about internalizing alpha traits, and about gaining skills and money and a strong body and all other external alpha traits. So it’s not like you have some grand new idea about being real versus… Read more »
