Religion is a subconscious reflection of this. God (alpha)...followers (betas)..and the non believers (omegas). This pattern of three is everywhere by the way...
This analogy made my day.
A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '
Hmm..interesting..I don't know. But I think it would have to be necessarily stratified..it's seems to me to be human nature to stratify everything. I would say that beta males with a tendency to alphaness are probably the most successful in western society. 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.
I'm young, yes, but my point was I don't talk about women because I don't know what it's like to be a woman. Anything I have to say about women (ie they should institutionalized<- this is experience talking) is necessarily biased since I have never experienced what life is like from that point of view. And again, I'm talking in generalizations..so yeah..toes will be stepped on..
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?
