    Tis a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it! Can you imagine a world full of submissive omegas falling over themselves to ...fall over themselves?

    It would be a world where everyone lived in their parent's basements. I don't know if there are enough basements.

    You've got that backwards. The Morlocks are the ones that live below ground.

    Omegas can be highly responsible people. By the same token, an Alpha can be so pushy and self absorbed that they can just lazily sit around and bark at people to do their bidding.

    I'm not sure what the correalation is here. At all.

    It was a joke.

    For the record, I scored as omega. I've been known to take the alpha position when necessary, but I generally would rather not. I think there are alot of omegas like that.

    in mountain climbing, the most experienced climber goes last in a rope chain when glacier crossing. that is because that position has the greatest responsibility for the safety of the group. the person in front gets to hold the compass but if they make a mistake and fall in a crevice they have the entire group to catch them. consequently they are not a "fearless leader", they are in the position of greatest safety.
    You know, that was so nicely put I have no issue with any of it.

    Grayscale, my firend, thou art a well versed and well spoken fellow.

    I am what I am, and if I am an Omega, that's fine with me, I'm not at all emotionally attached to a rank used to identify caste amongst primitive mammals.

    Maybe the "me first" element of the alpha persona is the part, that if factored out yields the Omega persona?

    Cheers to you,

    That very well may be it... leave it to the ESTP not to overcomplexity things!

    I much more relate to the omega but not as submissive. I think the omega is the one that has it right, the independent one. Where the alpa is tied to their status within their group and in an endless series of fights to protect it.

    It is best to be independent.
    Status is for fools.
    You need to fight to protect your independence.
