RE: The Gamma Megathread
(Maybe the Weinstein "make sure you shake my hand" was more of a "hey make sure you say hi to me at the event!" which would not really be anything untoward)

I don't see anything alpha about demanding that a semi-famous actor shake one's hand at a charity event. Reeks of approval-seeking. It is one thing to seek the endorsement of superiors, it is another to seek the endorsement of inferiors.

Weinstein is a classic gamma according to your very own definition in past posts on this thread. Someone who seeks power over others in order to exact revenge on the world that rejected him in his formative years. Compare that to Bill Clinton, who is charismatic to the point of extracting others' submission without coercion.

You're not getting it. A gamma is a man who attempts to acts like a King in front of other Alphas, Betas, Deltas and Sigmas, and no-one pays their self-delusion any attention whatsoever. It's only the Omegas who can mistake them for Alphas, and Hollywood isn't them. The formative experiences of a man like Weinstein don't matter - what caused his lust for power - if the end result is Genuine Power, then he became an Alpha.

If no-one is going to stand up to them, then they're the Alpha. If they tell people what to do, and people obey without hesitation, then they're the Alpha. If people cover for their crimes out of fear of retribution due to the power differential, then they're the Alpha. If no-one dares to punch them in the face, then they're the Alpha. Their power is real.

Make sense?

Weinstein was an observable King of Hollywood, no matter how toxic his behaviour was, because there's plenty of Toxic Alphas out there. The Gamma is the one pointing out that, no, he was the Real King all along, usually when they the King has been dethroned.

You can guess at Weinstein all we want, but we can KNOW Perlman is Gamma, because he just clearly told us. Straight from the Gamma's mouth. It doesn't matter what characters he's pretended to be in his movies, this is who he actually is behind the mask: a man who pisses on his own hand rather than confront the alpha about his behaviour, and thinks he's 'shown' him.

Of course Clinton extracted others submission via coercion, usually by blackmail, favours and murder, long before he became President. There's reams of history showing just how terrified people were of him and his wife, even back in the Arkansas days.

RE: The Gamma Megathread
I don't want to keep spamming up the thread, however my experience with my Dad recently was just too hilarious, mind-boggling and ridiculous not to share.

The backstory: I was having a laughing/giggling fit with my friend I was messaging to online about a group chat. It was an inside joke about "winner's mindset"- something he goes on and on about basically trying to always think positive and downplay the negative(to the extent of delusion- because he'd get mildly "triggered" by "complaining"- even if only 10-20% of what I say is negative), then calls it winner's mindset. I've turned it around for the ridiculousness it is and when I thought a lot about it I was laughing really hard.

When my dad heard me as I was walking around the kitchen as he was, he then said the predictable thing "you're not teasing anyone, are you?" with the subtle accusatory, but "naughty" tone. Almost like shaming but faux-positive. I don't know how to describe it exactly. This time I was feeling extra-positive and shitlordy so I decided to call him out on it and stir a little shit too. I think I instinctively projected that he would respond rationally also(at least- somewhat), given that I believe I would.

So I said- "You do realise most people- well, since dysfunction is so common, I guess, most well-adjusted people- don't actually enjoy teasing other people all that much? I'd imagine in well-adjusted people about 20% of the total pleasure/laughter people get actually comes from that. So if you keep asking people that question they are probably going to think something's up, since you should assume they aren't teasing anyone". From then on, his tone got relatively intense and accusatory, though I think he had enough of a handle on his emotions that he suppresses his anger(I believe he's virtually always angry- but hides it). It's sort of a defensive tone. "Where did you get that number?" "The exact number 20% isn't important, it's just that it's roughly that-" "How do you KNOW it's that" "In my case it's 20%-" "Oh it's just you then but clearly you have no friends and you don't know people but I do and so you don't know what you're saying". <--- That really threw me for a loop, historically I thought he said that in good faith, but reading AC I'm realising more and more it's subconsciously intentional to try to demoralise me, which historically worked, and I think would work for most people.

"Have you thought about the fact that most of the people you know, who find teasing 20% of less of the total things they find funny, have self-selected to avoid you, thus you don't know about them?" "That's ONE possibility" "Well, it's a really likely possibility, given how teasing people is actually rather boring" "It's boring FOR YOU, but I don't like how you're so confident about ONE POSSIBILITY"(him getting visibly upset, but still keeping in control) "Well, you can believe what you want to believe, but"(I mean, given he's 40 years older than me) "That's what I'm saying(it isn't what he was saying), but you can't be so confident about something that only applies to you" "I don't care what you believe, believe what you want" "That's what I'm saying(again, it isn't what he was saying), that it's ONE possibility, there's no need to get so upset"

Now here's the interesting bit. Historically this sort of discussion was heated. I sort of now realise it was him(or in some cases, Mum) who made it heated. So often, me or my sisters(or Mum) WOULD get upset. But in this case, I wasn't, I was actually still in a laughing mood. So basically, he tried to "flip things around" by accusing me of being upset. Naturally, I called him out on it. "I'm not upset, I'm actually laughing really hard" "There's no need to deny it" "I mean you can believe what you want to believe". This time I KNEW I was laughing really hard and wasn't upset at all so it was an obvious, ridiculous lie. It's sort of weird that he would lie about something I would know to be so untrue. It was clear he was the upset one and trying to deny it but then had to turn it around and pretend I was the upset one and denying it.

The sad thing is I only got into what I hoped would be a rational, sensible discussion, because I imagined if I were him I would want to know this. I imagined- me as him finds laughing at others/teasing others funny, but well-adjusted people don't- thus I would be repelling people by being so pretentious about "teasing". So really I wanted to help him out here. But it got twisted into him getting triggered and then attacking me. It's also really funny how concerned he was with my opinion. I mean come on, disagree with me and then move on with your life.

RE: The Gamma Megathread
One clear mark of a gamma is a total lack of intellectual sincerity. Gammas generally have no inherent concern for the truth. In line with their feminine mode of thinking, they seem to have their own gamma hamster which can work its way around truths it finds too uncomfortable, or whose acceptance would mean they were wrong about something.

Krauser has a good article on gamma physiognomy:

Quote:What you should be looking for as classic gamma physical traits: Soft smooth skin like it’s fresh from the spa having never experienced rugged outdoor environments; penetrating eyes with barely veiled self-righteous rage, passive-aggressive body posture braced for a snarky comeback, weak shoulders and neck.

Finally, this might be the most intense concentration of gamma on the internet (also from Krauser):

That video appears to be a gamma superfest, but if you watch the whole thing, you notice Will Farrell is one of the guys doing the slow, reverent monologues, and they start saying more and more insane, over-the-top things. It's a spoof of gammas, and therefore it's actually anti-gamma.

I have to admit, it's difficult to watch it long enough to get to the point where they start taking things over the top.

I was surprised when I found it was a parody, and couldn't believe I went years without realizing. Now it makes more sense. The two are so similar I didn't realize they were different.

Here it is for comparison.

That video is so gay it just broke my gaydar!

Btw, my thinking about gammas is that they are betas who think of themselves as alphas but noone is buying what they are selling!

Don't buy it.

The first two guys strike me as con-men. I've met a couple in the old PUA community, talking about 'energy' etc, making money from courses, getting lot's of females around them and inevitably having sexual relations with more or more of them.

"Respect the hustle" ... not if its done in this manner.
