You are most like a gamma in the masculine social hierarchy.
Gamma males are the intellectuals or malcontents of the masculine social hierarchy. Knowledgeable in their fields of expertise but resentful of existing hierarchies, they are likely to sabotage alpha males and the male pecking order in general. Gammas are perhaps the most ‘book smart’ of all the male types, but tend to lack the social skills, money, looks or mental toughness needed to establish dominance.
Because intellect is their strength, gammas often overstress the intellectual side of life, believing that it alone should determine who makes it to the top. To gammas, it will often seem unfair that their intellectual inferiors are the ones to rise to the top. Many gammas consider themselves the ‘secret kings’ who should actually be in charge.
Since gammas are usually resentful and dissatisfied with their position, others – including women – tend to pick up on their frustration and dismiss them. This can keep gammas from realizing their full potential, leaving them in a “gamma trap.”
Gamma benefits: Intelligence, sensitivity, idealism.
Gamma drawbacks: Unsatisfied with their position, frustrated, misunderstood.
I've been told I'm a gamma female before.
