I also never understood this weird “alpha / beta” distinction thing. It’s based upon questionable perspectives of animal group behavior, mostly done in the 80s from what I remember. Lots of books written about the “Alpha male”, with Donald Trump always heralded as the frontrunner back in the day.

Then this thing called “Beta male” started being a thing. I dunno. Never seemed logical.

Well, that’s the thing about it: the alpha/beta thing always struck me another MBTI: a personality sorting tool. It’s useful for those who use it, but without any real ontological status that’s worthy of much serious discussion, imo.
