How your Alpha personality type will give you an advantage in your business and life and how you can become successful by channeling your alpha traits.

 

The Alpha Male

Well, hello there, Mr. Popularity. How is life as the leader of the pack? Do you find yourself always deciding where your office crew will enjoy happy hour? Or are you constantly determining the best way for your team to get those long-term work projects done? Those roles you seem to always fall into are natural predilections of your alpha personality. You probably find it easy to take charge in a multitude of situations because you have always been so outgoing. To you, choosing a happy hour locale is no different than when you used to pick the pizza place where your little league would celebrate after you scored the winning homerun. You have always been programmed for success. You are an enterprising individual who is practically destined for a lifetime of fulfillment  If you have not been realizing your potential lately, it could be because that same charm and charisma that has worked wonders on your many lady friends is not working as well on your colleagues. Read on to see how you can adjust your machismo meter to ‘just right’ for a lifetime of reaping the rewards.

 

The Alpha Female

And you, Miss Confidence, how does it feel to dominate an entire office full of women? Probably, pretty similar to the feeling you had in college when you quickly rose to the top of your sorority’s who’s who list. Yes, your alpha personality has led you to the apex of nearly every social circle you ever obliged with your friendship. Your competitive spirit has landed you a career position some women can only ever dream to attain and you want to know how to make the best of it. Like your alpha male counterpart, though, you are wondering why not every one of your superiors is as taken with your ambitious, can-do attitude. After all, you excel in every task they designate to you. Beware of the potential setbacks that can come from your alpha personality. You will sometimes have to remind yourself that you are not necessarily the boss in every situation. Maybe the best thing you can do to win the promotion that will lead to a lifetime of financial security is to just relax a bit. Try to show your superiors that you can be nurturing and understanding, two traits that can be necessary in higher-level management positions. They often don’t see this side of you when you are acting as the social chair and competing to turn in the best work, solo. Below, we have the key to ensuring your alpha personality will bring you success.

So, now you know who you are, Mr. Popularity and Miss Confidence. Your only question should be how do you channel your alpha personality traits in order to take control of your life and continue to be hugely successful. In knowing those personality traits of yours that help you achieve success and those that others may be slightly turned off by, you are miles ahead of your alpha competitors. Take a look at the ten reasons why your alpha personality will bring you success that we have listed below and then use them to take control of your future success.

 

10 Reasons Why Your Alpha Personality Will Bring You Success

 

1. You are Popular

Your family, friends and colleagues actually like you so, you can expect that they will hope for your success as much as you do. It is as if you have your own personal cheering squad and when things are not going your way, you can expect these people to jump in and help.

 

2. You are a Leader

People naturally want to follow others with alpha personalities. Because others are following your lead, they will work harder to contribute to your success knowing that their own success is dependent on you and your plan.

 

3. You are Enterprising

Since childhood you have been one of those people that seek solutions to whatever problems arise. You have practiced this skill so often that any problems you may run into seem simple.

 

4. You Possess Charm and Charisma

Part of being successful relies on your ability to share your success and the rewards of it with others. People want to be a part of your success because you are just so appealing, warm and welcoming.

 

5. You are Confident

New opportunities are constantly presenting themselves and you have enough confidence to make yourself available for all of them.

 

6. You Dominate in Social Circles

A key to success in business is networking and you are naturally inclined to be good at this. In terms of success in life, large and varied social circles will allow you more opportunities to find hobbies that you love.

 

7. You Have a Can-Do Attitude

You can handle anything that is thrown your way. New tasks are easily tackled and, because you’re you, they are completed with poise.

 

8. You are Ambitious

There is not much worth to being enterprising if you don’t have the ambition to make progress. Your alpha personality makes you want to do more in every aspect of life.

 

9. You are Competitive

You turn everything into a competition. And you have to come out the winner. Turn your ambition for success in business and life into a competition and you will surely end up on top.

 

10. You Can Control You

    My Mom is an Alpha female. She is 80 years old today. Due to the times, lack of education and social situation, all she could do was be a super Mom and wife.. She ran a house of 8 children and a husband like a pro. She was always on top of things, from bills, cleaning, cooking, checking homework, settling arguments. She just always had a go get it attitude. And she also worked and all this while always looking awesome even to this day. She never wore anything that wasn’t ironed first. Her house and her garden was the nicest in the neighborhood just because. I always said that if she had been born under different circumstances, she would had been a CEO or something big. On the other hand, I have a masters degree, and I am kind of lame in so many ways. Sigh. I always wished I had inherited her personality type.

    There are many alpha females throughout history. Cleopatra, Catherine the Great, Margaret Thatcher, to name just a few. To think that alphas have to be male because males are physically stronger is ignorant and shallow. More than that, people of this opinion clearly don’t understand what the expression alpha means. Even a physically weak person is perfectly able to lead.

      Exactly. The level of shallowness demonstrated in some of the comments is too high. The only explanation I can think of is people who don’t have enough life experience or haven’t been particularly curious about the world & its history.

    Eleanor Roosevelt was included in the quotes section. She certainly was not *alpha* in any sense of the word. Instead, she was an introvert who used her innate traits to make change in the world. One doesn’t have to be *alpha* or an *extrovert* to be *successful.* What a shallow article.

    There certainly are Alpha Females. Largely due to the decline of the Alpha Male. I am an Alpha male and I see it all the time. Alpha women seem increasingly abundant. I love the article and the site thanks.

      You clearly don’t grasp the concept of an alpha personality. It is one who will dominate those around him without requiring law or structured society. An alpha personality will rise to the top in a condition of total anarchy. No female, not even a three hundred pound butch Lesbian will be capable of such a thing. It requires physical strength, endurance, intelligence, determination. When woman can compete on an equally basic in something like an iron man competition you might find an alpha female.

      Many woman are strong, intelligent, capable. I admire such women, but to call them alpha females is pointless – they aren’t.

        And what about Oprah? Hillary Clinton? Lady Gaga? Angelina Jolie? J.K Rowling?

        If they’re not Alphas, do u think they’ll be where they are today?

        With all the Alpha male’s physical strength, endurance, intelligence, determination to compete with them, do you think that an alpha woman would thrive in this “iron man competition world”

        Just look within your family and who controls everyone? Your mom.

          maybe your Mom rules the house
          I have noticed that homes run by the Woman are 99 percent of the time are poorly run homes. Not that homes run by Men are perfect, but the natural order of things is Men run things best. “let us not be drawn into your next response on how men start wars or whatever .”

            You might think that but statistics says otherwise. Even in developing countries homes where women call the shots are more successful. Women pay more attention to education, health, finances & general well-being. You’d better do some reading on the matter, and not just rely on anecdotal evidence.

        I think you are mixing up alpha male and alpha female by sizing the alpha female to the alpha male. A man who dominates men is a alpha male and a woman who dominates women is a alpha female. Your saying because a woman is not a male or doesn’t dominate males she isn’t an alpha female. When clearly if you read, an alpha female dominates mainly females, we’re not talking about males.

          I don’t think it’s a gender thing at all. Just a personality type. Why try go make it a gender thing? Just because you run a household, doesnt mean you’re alpha. An alpha could run a household and an alpha child may not follow orders and never get along, because they too are alpha. Being alpha doesn’t mean you’re always on control, but you have the need to be. Alphas can become very irritated or depressed when they cannot dominate, influence, and succeed.

    There is no such thing as an Alpha female. So much for this nonsesne.

    failure is certain if we give up and dont try but sucess is never a certainty in the same manner if we dont so therefor sucsess can only be defined by not failing e.g. never quitting. you can never fail to achieave a dream if your always trailing behind it.
