WHO are Alpha Males?

January 15, 2012

So in the last post, we covered exactly WHAT a Alpha Male is. In this post, I want to provide you with 3 brief examples of the sort of people WHO are Alpha Males. In each of the examples, I’ll give a brief intro and then give some quick notes on why each is a Alpha Male.

First, we are going to look at:

Character: Samuel Gerard

Film: The Fugitive (1993)

What is it about: In this clip, Sam Gerard, gives a speech to a select group of Law Enforcement officials on the search for a fugitive.

What makes him a AM: In this scene, he demonstrates his confidence and accepts authority, over the other males (many of whom hold high powers of authority in their jobs e.g. Police Officers). Despite having to speak in front of a high number of people, he projects his voice to all, looks them in the eye as he talks and gives direct orders, with his voice portraying complete control (and he expects utter compliance from the group). The officers feel compelled to listen to him due to his authoritative tone.

The next person we are going to look at is:

Character: Tyler Durden

Film: Fight Club (1999)

What is it about: In this clip, Tyler Durden is giving the ‘Fight Club’ recruits the rules of ‘Fight Club’.

What makes him a AM: Tyler demonstrates total belief in what he is saying. An Alpha Male will never apologies for what he is saying or to be more specific, in what he believes. Tyler talks with utter belief in what he is saying as the truth and the whole truth. You can tell by listening to Tyler, that he believes, right down to his soul, that what he is saying is the truth, he believes this completely. In this group of angry, violent men, there isn’t a eye missing of Tyler. He walks around the room, talking in a strong tone, in a controlled manner. He gathers his thoughts, not being rushed by the pressure of everyone looking at him and he always maintains his composure and control.

Our final Alpha for this post is

Character: King Leonidas

Film: 300 (2007)

What is it about: In this clip, a Persian messenger is offering King Xerxes’s terms to King Leonidas of Sparta. The messenger is being very insulting in many ways but King Leonidas doesn’t react to the insults … well not at first anyway!

What makes him a AM: King Leonidas thinks through his actions, he isn’t rushed into a decision or action, regardless of the high number of people eyeing him for him to decide. King Leonidas gives his own terms leaving the messenger in doubt about his mood, he doesn’t hide his feelings or supplicate to the overtly aggressive messenger. After kicking the messenger into the hole, King Leonidas simply turns his back on the other men fighting. He has the belief in his men, he shows utter confidence in his own skills and those of his men. He remains confident throughout. King Leonidas believes that what he is doing is right for his men and his people.

Now obviously, there is more to each scene then the brief notes I’ve mentioned, but I will start to go into greater detail in the coming posts. In this post, I simply want to show brief examples to you of the types of people who are Alpha Males and demonstrate some of the classic characteristics of a Alpha Male.

In the coming posts, I will look at individual Alpha Males and analyse particular scenes from entertainment and show you how you can incorporate the positive characteristics into your life, to get better with women.
