It's been widely accepted in TRP that a person intrinsically isn't alpha or beta, but that acting dominant or submissive is just set of behaviours.
Yet every so often I notice posts where wanna-be machiavellians try to hamster their submissive behaviour e.g kissing their boss' ass for a promotion one day as alpha behaviour.
Men and women, whether they consciously acknowledge it or not, literally feel when one is in position of power and recognize the perks such as abundance of no fucks give etc that come with it.
I'd imagine many here would think of a person playing the long con like Littlefinger in GoT as an Alpha, cause "pretending to play the part, ends justify the means and so forth" is alpha behaviour but you all grab your torches and pitchforks when a bluepill guy tries to backstab one of you(a thread earlier today) to get the girl.
He was running a gambit as well, just one based on false premise.
TL;DR Don't let the male hamster get the best of you.
Taking it up the ass to get a promotion(reasonable premise) isn't inherently more alpha than taking it up the ass to get the girl(false premise). You're still taking it up the ass.
