    is this really what we think it means to be an alpha? be self-centered and inconsiderate? lol... want to be different, be a leader, display strength? get over yourself and put others first, selfishness is easy. something tells me whoever wrote this test has never had kids.

    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    Well ya know...I don't know why being an alpha in itself should be a good thing. So I don't think the attributes associated with it should necessarily be admired. You look at animals and the alpha male is simply the strongest and the most selfish one usually.


    But I agree the test is either clearly a joke or the work of someone who clearly have a trouble understanding what it means to be awesome.


    And I say everyone who wants to ride shotgun or drive should be part of my entourage really. I like to sit back and relax and lay down the law like that.

    Good point, I am assuming we all consider being the 'alpha' a good thing... but aren't we on the top of the food chain because we're smarter than animals? it's no coincidence we also understand the concept of love and sharing, which is to recognize that there is enough for everyone, to appreciate what we have more than loathe what we dont, this is why we do not kill each other over food like animals.

    In my mind, being a leader implies that you are taking others to a place they aren't already, and they do so by going first and demonstrating the right way. That is why I think selflessness is the mark of a true leader, because they have the deepest grasp of what they already have and set the example by giving it freely to others, which results in the greatest good among everyone.

    To say selfishness is the example is to regress the intelligence we've been granted towards animalism. Clearly we have achieved more than animals, that doesn't seem like a good idea to me.

    It just seemed to me to be a how rude are you test. I think the questions were odd to determine alpha status. Most people think rude people in restaurants are just that, rude. And perhaps ignorant.
