    And your expectation is that everyone can read your intentions? Did you know my intentions when I originally posted?

    The condescension about women is brutally stupid and in return, deserves its own brutally stupid response.

    Plus, you assume I'm African?

    If not by residence, by ancestry.

    ^ lol, aren't we all African by ancestry?

    You're only half right. Unless it's impossible to be half Kenyan and fully American at the same time? So, while you are only half right, I am "whole" right. I'm not sure where that puts you...

    Even though not original, your theory is good.

    This analogy made my day.

    A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

In Africa, I would argue that most "successful men" are omegas with a tendency towards alpha..or alphas with a tendency towards omeganess. What would you say?
    I was looking for examples closer by in different work environments or aspects of life .

    That let me to consider what the duals would have in common.

    Dual alpha/ beta: "The group has a certain hierarchy. Those at the top set the rules"
    a) Alpha part: "I'm the dominant one/ at the top and I set the rules"
    b) Beta part: "I follow the rules of those at the top"
    Say successful corporation, army man.

    Dual alpha/omega: "I need to follow my own rules"
    a) Alpha part: "I follow them by imposing them on the group"
    b) Omega part: "I follow them by disengaging myself from the group"
    Hmm, maybe a rock star - concerts vs. creating period.

    Dual beta/omega: "I need to keep harmony"
    a) Beta part: "By following groups rules"
    b) Omega part: "By disengaging myself from the group if i don't want to follow their rules"
    I had troubles here but maybe a successful man - maybe a scientist using already existing knowledge and logical set of rules in a new creative way.

    Your theory is a chimpanzee theory, placing way too much emphasis on competitive nature.

    What the...I don't even...

    Enjoy your life as a recluse or a homosexual.

    Do you tend to want to either discard or lock up everything you don't understand?
