    The funny thing is that they try to disparage the concept of alpha by having other men dominate the supposed alpha, thus establishing themselves as alpha in the situation, like 3:42.

    This is just anti-patriarchal propaganda to make feminists and effeminate men feel good. All kinds of mammals have a group member that naturally rises toward being the leader of the group including human beings. The pecking order can been seen in your own groups of friends and has never been contested to whether it existed by any scientific observation. Typically in animals this member is the biggest and strongest, and fighting is how they establish that member. Fortunately human beings have grown wise enough to realize physical strength isn't the most important trait in our society for leadership, but that animal instinct is still blatantly observable in us. Thus the alpha male/female does entirely exist, it's just the term alpha male gets a lot of heat because of boneheads trying to emulate one.
    Also why was the concept of an Alpha Female cited and accepted but at the same time you are trying to disprove the concept of an Alpha? Like I said.

    Alpha Adam = People overcompensating due to insecurities. That is not the way more assertive, confident "alpha" individuals act.

    You don’t have single credible source. All you did was say seemingly arbitrary facts that don’t even help your argument.

    Please do not insult the DND players- also if the DM was that incompetent by calling him a “magic user” he shouldn’t be a DM in the first place. No, there’s a bunch of classes that have spells like warlocks, wizards, sorcerers, clerics, druids, bards, paladins, rangers, rouges with the arcane trickster, and any character that has Tiefling as the race that didn’t swap it out for another trait, if a character is a drow, if the character is a high elf (they get one free cantrip), if the character is a Dragonborn (if you count the breath weapon as magic which is unlikely), if the character is a forest gnome.
    Also double classing is a thing...
    And a class that isn’t based around melee combat can still own/ buy a sword, it’s just not an optional play.
    I had to look through my players hand book for this and it’s all 5e information.
    I did actually research on this comment.

  • Pixelated Hero
    Pixelated Hero 14 дней назад

    The "alpha male" portrayed in this video is anything but alpha. He is insecure and tries to prove his worth only to be shut down, to which he again responds with hyper-aggression. There's a mistaken notion about alphas and how they are required to use aggression and intimidation to rise up to dominance. It's quite the contrary. An alpha also has the qualities of kindness and generosity, despite people seeing them as "beta". And these are traits that are required - what do leaders do? They are strong, capable individuals who are also able to empathize with those less fortunate and thus bring out the best in everyone.
    Simply put, an alpha is someone who is comfortable and confident with who he is and is able to adapt to the situation at hand.
    PS: To be fair, "beta Adam" showed more qualities of alpha than "alpha Adam". He was a lot more comfortable throughout the video, as opposed to the other who grew increasingly insecure about his status as alpha.

    I work for shy wolf sanctuary. 98% of this episode was false and inaccurate. Also cited almost nothing when talking about alpha males in animals. Wolves do have an alpha in every pack. Also alpha’s are not loud and aggressive. They are calm and assertive when challenged. That’s what makes them great leaders of a pack. They don’t act irrational and keep a mind for the packs well being. I’ve watched this tv show up until this I question all the other episodes I’ve seen.

    It's a social structure. Not a literal hard and fast rule. It's funny cause ya, anyone can be an "alpha" or a "beta" it's all relative and change from group to group.
    This skit is trying to say that only macho guys are alpha. It extends to females as well. Studies show when females period cycles sync up, they tend to do so with who ever is the alpha female. In a group of nerds, it might just be the guy who's best, or better at whatever traits to be socially dominant.
    It's not strictly biggest baddest or what ever they are trying to say. And there are definitely studies into the concept of social structure and kin group organizations, but it's not as simple as the biggest male. There's always an "alpha" but that person is different from situation to situation, not a fixed character assignment. Afterskool had a decent video on it.

    It's important to note that the Bonobo is a type of Chimpanzee. They are the smaller of the two closely related chimpanzee species. Which would mean chimpanzees ARE the closest relatives of humans. Just a slight inaccuracy in this vid. I don't know if everything else he was was true or not. But that part bothered me.

    Reading the comments, I wonder if anyone actually got the point of the video, I disliked it personally because it felt like a strawman. I also didn't like that he doesn't site his sources in the description since I was quite interested in him saying that David Mech had went back on his statement, but I couldn't find a link to it. It feels like a fluffed up skit that I don't really understand that much, first it talks about wolves and alpha males but then takes this weird angle about how being a beta male was better? It seems quite odd to be honest, and the comment seem to show this since no one took 5 minutes or so to research anything within this video, which is quite appalling to be honest since the research done seems flimsy and only to prop up this odd angle about how being the beta is better. It also paints the leadership and I guess you could say "breadwinner" role of alphas as simply a bunch of aggressive morons who can't function without trying to show how dominant they are, which isn't dominance it's insecurity, a trait that most wouldn't find appealing. The odd angle the video takes about being a beta is just strange to say the least, and I know I've said it maybe 5 times in this comment, but it still comes off as just...Odd, such as the scene with the DnD players and how a "genetically superior" alpha wouldn't be so dominant in something they aren't familiar with, but then again I guess a giraffe wouldn't be leading the pack of a bunch of wildebeests but I digress.
    Tl;dr Adam's research isn't very great and the skit is a bit iffy and should be researched more

  • xscar10

    Of course alpha males exist. Pretending like they don't because you disagree with the term is just trying to manipulate language. With wolves, parents are most often the alpha, however this doesn't mean they don't exist. Alpha just means the ones at the top of the hierarchy. So as long as a hierarchy exists, there will be an alpha. So the video should have been about debunking the existence of hierarchies.
    The concept of the alpha being the most aggressive and strong are incidental because those factors increase the likelihood of getting to the top of the pyramid. But like he said, the chimps alpha male can be the one who obsessively grooms others, which makes the other chimps loyal to him, and then if a chimp challenges him for dominance all he has to do is have the help of the ones that like him.
    Alpha in this way does exist and will always exist. The "debunking" in the video was not actually about the alpha male, like Adam said, but towards those who call themselves alpha males, which is a different thing. The "Alpha Adam" in the skit was not in fact an alpha male, just a male posturing as an alpha. If he were trying to debunk an actual alpha male "Alpha Adam" would look very different. He would posses the qualities of assertiveness, dominance and fitness sure, but among humans one major factor in becoming the alpha male is charisma. Meaning he would have to be likable, empathic and likely handsome. The skit would have been better served saying "men who call themselves alpha males are not alpha males" or something on these lines.
    This is why I dislike Adam ruins everything. While the videos are quite informative and entertaining they are also filled with half truths. I would enjoy the series more if he didn't set up straw men of the opposition, and instead discussed the nuance of the issue, even if it was biased towards one side.
