You may have heard of a confident and bossy alpha male once or twice in your life. It seems like this personality type is the center of both men’s and women’s attention. Men are taught to behave like alphas, however, there are some who don’t care about the rules and still manage to be attractive. So, believe it or not, alpha males may not be all they’re cracked up to be.
Introducing you to another type, known as the sigma male.
What a sigma male is
A sigma male is a man who doesn’t need validation from other people. He’s not loud or brash but calm and collected. A sigma male is an introverted but confident guy. Sigmas are outside the usual and they don’t typically fit into groups because they themselves are uncommon.
Alpha male vs sigma male
Sigma and alpha males are equal and share many common characteristics. They’re both confident in their life choices and aim high. The main difference lies in their attitude. Sigmas choose to sit outside the hierarchy, while Alphas prefer to be at the top of it. The latter achieve success by climbing the hierarchy ladder. Sigmas, on the other hand, don’t belong to any tribe. They do everything on their own.
