Ken Lay: Alpha
Donald Rumsfeld: Alpha
Bill Clinton: Beta
Al Gore: Beta
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
In my VERY humble opinion, the problem here is how the author is defining Alpha and Beta. Alpha has nothing to do with arrogance, bravado or any of the traits exhibited by Rumsfeld, Lay or Bill O’Reilly. These are the traits of the insecure BETA.
I think the article author needs to reassess her stereotypical view of Alpha and join the 21st century with the rest of us.
Its odd that she portrays an inverse relationship between alpha in females and males ie: there need to be beta males to complement alpha females, etc. Maybe I missed something there?
Alpha is being angry at the way things are and having the courage to work for change. Ghandi, MLK and Nelson Mandela are all amazing examples of Alpha. Tip of the cap to you MadTitan…
