20 Things about a Beta Female at Work - ThePleasantPersonality

The beta female at work can create endless wonders. She might be shy and reserved, but she’ll prove that quiet girls can run the world.

She’s not here to just help her husband and children flourish. She’ll shine equally as much in her professional life.

So, let’s know more about her professional performance here!

Beta Female at Work

Most people assume that beta females are inferior to the alpha female. Some even think that they are the complete opposite of alpha women, so they’re not ambitious at all.

Welp, I’m here to clear the misconceptions about them. So, sit tight while I share the amazing facts about her!

1. Her work ethic is strong

Employees with beta female personality traits are focused on their careers. You can tell how passionate they are about their work from their attitude. They are disciplined, ambitious and stay up-to-date in their work.

They follow a set of rules to ensure their high productivity. They respect everyone around them and are organized in their work. They are serious about their responsibility.

If needed, they cooperate with an entire team to reach their goals with the highest levels of perfectionism. They aren’t stubborn about things and always focus on the firm’s welfare. You can rely on a beta female employee/co-worker at any time with teamwork.

2. She always advises the best to her co-workers

Whether you want advice on your work or life, seek your beta gal at the office. I promise she won’t let you down. Rather, she always comes up with the most useful ideas.

Do you wonder how she does that?

Well, our girl always silently notices everything in the vicinity. She knows which clients you work with and how they treat you. She has some idea of what they’d like if you can’t figure things out.

She also notices when you act a bit off. She’s always down for some personal advice beyond office hours or during the break. She’s like the kind veteran in the office that spreads good vibes to everyone!

3. She’s capable yet won’t be a leader

The beta female prefers to play any role other than a leader. Many of her coworkers feel that she is just not capable enough to snatch the alpha females’ throne. But the truth is that the beta female loves to follow instead.

She understands that she isn’t comfortable with leading even though she has amazing qualities. The beta female doesn’t feel ashamed of this because she knows not everyone is built the same.

She can’t take responsibility for others’ part. Rather, she just wants to focus on her current responsibilities and make wonders from the back. She knows she can’t focus on multiple tasks and prefers to excel on her own.

4. She can mediate issues pretty finely

She hates conflicts and avoids them by any means. But even if she tactfully avoids them, her coworkers may not.

A fight between coworkers might break out… or, even worse, one between an employee and a client or customer might begin.

But like a mindful mediator, she is always prepared for these. Over time, she learned to manage such situations by mediating them. Before things get dirty, she enters the scene and saves the day.

Since she notices everything silently, she knows who is at fault or whose opinion matters more. She calmly helps both sides talk about their problems and understand each other’s perspectives and thoughts. In the end, she successfully helps sort things out.

5. She’s a mother even at work!

If a woman has a hint of motherly love, she’ll be a mom everywhere. No, of course, beta women can’t treat hundreds of people like their babies. But she’ll treat her team members or rookies in that fashion.

She’ll always look out for your mistakes and double-check your work. Before your work reaches the higher authorities, she’ll fix everything and give you feedback. 

If you’ll do your first presentation or speech, she’ll support you with all the documents and necessities before you begin. Even if you’re exhausted, she might get you coffee or give you a pep talk to de-stress you. You’ll be glad to have her beside you.

6. Empathy helps her deal with clients and coworkers better

She is empathic… or, in other words, she can feel others’ emotions like her own. She knows when something is off with someone the moment she enters a room. It doesn’t matter whether the other person is an old co-worker or a new client.

She understands the other person’s mood pretty vividly even without a clear explanation. It helps her prevent doing or saying anything offensive to them.

She can deal with an upset co-worker or client much better than others because she’s emotionally intelligent. She responds appropriately to others and troublesome situations.

7. She’d rather not attend work events

The traits of a beta female also mention that she is introverted. It’s not that she can’t handle socializing… She can act her best when push comes to pull.

However, she feels exhausted acting all cheery around unknown people. She’d rather be on her own and enjoy her time any day.

So, she might not attend the work events unless it’s mandatory. Or, she might appear if she needs to connect with someone for her organization’s growth or to switch her job.

If her alpha female boss insists, she might make an appearance for a moment. And she might hang out in an inconspicuous area on her own when she’s not needed. But she doesn’t feel comfortable doing that. 

8. She’s more inclined to join a world improvement project

Women with beta personality types are extremely concerned about the planet. Blame it on their sensitive soul that they can’t stand people’s sufferings. They wonder whether they can help their community overcome their troubles somehow.

So, a beta woman will always be interested to join in a noble cause. In her time off, she might support charity, volunteer in soup kitchens or pet shelters, or even donate clothes or aid for the needy.

If her workplace plans to support a similar cause, it’s a great idea to add her in. She’ll be thrilled to work on such projects and dedicate herself even more to them.

9. She’s pretty intelligent

It’s not known to many, but the beta female is highly intelligent and intuitive. People go on about the alpha-beta female distinction and look down on betas. But contrary to popular belief, she is as intelligent as alpha women.

This smart woman also has the answers to everything… but she’ll never boast that around her coworkers. From now on, make proper use of her intelligence.

No, it’s not only about assigning challenging tasks to her. If you plan to have a company trip, consult her. She knows what the people in her department will enjoy the best because she observes everyone. She can also recommend cool places to relax under a proper budget.

10. She works hard but avoids the spotlight

Due to her introversion, this is pretty expected from her. She doesn’t want anything that includes the spotlight.

Suppose she or the entire department landed a major project or succeeded in something huge. She’ll appreciate it if you don’t attract extra attention to her.

Public appreciation isn’t needed at all as it makes her uncomfortable. Rather, congratulate her separately and let that be all.

Suppose the company event needs an emcee. Choose anyone but her as she just can’t. If necessary, she’ll deal with it, but it’s unfair to her. 

11. Her morals won’t ever let her do anything wrong

The beta woman is in touch with her spiritual side. She is aware of what is right or wrong, so she never intentionally tries to hurt others.

So, you can totally trust her with your or your business secrets. Don’t worry because she won’t think about selling those even in her wildest dreams.

If she notices that someone around her plans to hurt the organization, she won’t let them. She may not call them out instantly, but she will definitely communicate to snap them out of it.

Even if she gets bullied, she won’t try to take revenge to satisfy herself.  Her high morals just won’t allow her to tread on the wrong path. 

12. She isn’t aggressive towards opinionated people

Suppose she states her opinions about something in a meeting. But her rival tries to insult her with a backhanded comment. Most people lose their minds and act aggressively. But she believes in the gentle approach.

Or, say, one of her teammates made a huge mistake. Others usually blame the one at fault and bully them. But she understands that mistakes are normal.

In both cases, she doesn’t attack the other person with brutal honesty. Rather, she sugarcoats her words to avoid hurting the other person.

She’s sensitive and knows that aggressive remarks can hurt their productivity. So, she wisely uses her words to express herself kindly.

13. She believes in nothing but practical ideas

Nobody wants it but a sticky situation isn’t uncommon at work. For instance, something went wrong while dealing with a client. Or, perhaps the company will put on an exhibition and a piece is missing?

Usually, everyone goes haywire during these moments. They hyperventilate but can’t figure out anything to solve the situation. Even if they suggest ideas, it gets stuck with an “only if” clause.

But a beta female employee can always keep her calm in the worst situation. She sticks to practical thoughts to work things out. She stops her emotions from going overboard which helps her throughout the planning. Her logical ideas always save the day!

14. Her creativity helps her cross every hurdle

If her coworkers are in a pinch and can’t solve an issue, she always has some idea. You’re probably not aware but she is filled with immense creativity. She can think out of the box to help everyone out.

Remember, stubborn times need an even more stubborn person. And she is the perfect fit!

On the other hand, she’s also skilled in artistic creativity. She has great ideas for art and crafts. So, she’s also fit for artistic fields.

If the design team of your firm struggles to find ideas, let them talk with her. Even without formal education in art, she can come up with some unique ideas.

15. Her dressing sense leaves a great impression

The overall appearance of human beings is extremely important in their professional life. A beta woman owns a range of nice clothes and knows how to dress for every occasion. From formal events to interviews, she dresses to impress!

In the interview round, recruiters will be astonished by how polished she looks. Her body language and clothes will scream P-R-O-F-E-S-S-I-O-N-A-L! Her outfit leaves a good impression on recruiters which increases her chance of getting the job.

Moreover, her appearance is also useful when she deals with her clients. Her dressing sense gives away an “expert” vibe. People know she means business and is pretty serious about it.

Especially, if she works in the art industry, clients can trust her guts even more!

16. She’ll take her time before major decisions

Before any important professional decision, she takes the most time she can. Of course, she knows that she doesn’t have all the time in the world. But she buys enough time to make a conscious decision after detailed research.

If her boss, co-worker, or client hurries her unnecessarily, she won’t accept that. She only has the best for everyone in mind. She knows that a rushed decision might fail the entire task later on. So, she won’t take that chance at all.

17. She’s too weak to criticism

She is pretty sensitive to negative remarks. It can keep her up for nights worried about how she inconvenienced others. After all, she always tries her best to not upset her coworkers.

Or, it might crumble her self-confidence to pieces. She’ll overthink the situation and undermine herself. She might put herself down and immerse in self-blame.

However, criticism and rejection are pretty common in the workplace. Someone will always be better than the other. So, rejection is inevitable. On the other hand, human beings, despite how intelligent or perfect, will make mistakes.

So, she might struggle a lot in her work if she’s that sensitive. Once she has enough funds, she might soon consider freelancing or her own business.

18. She supports all coworkers without judgment

The beta female employee is an eager helper. So, if she ever notices a co-worker is in trouble, she’ll reach out instantly. She doesn’t judge her co-workers… whether they are new at work or are on it for years.

She knows that nobody is perfect and supports everyone to the best of her abilities.

Even if the task is out of her scope, she’ll seek someone else instead. She understands that the co-worker in need might be too shy to ask for it.

If she can solve the issue by herself, she’ll give them a hand even if they’re unfamiliar. However, she won’t put important work on hold for that!

19. She’s probably much more confident than you think

Some beta females are insecure because they’re always the second choice or are ignored. However, most of them choose to become background characters. So long as the organization treats them right and compensates for their work, they don’t care about appreciation.

So, your beta gal co-worker probably doesn’t mind being invisible to others. Since she’s introverted, she appreciates the fact that nobody talks to her.

She’s aware of her skills and needs nobody to remind her. Rather, she can focus on her work better when nobody disturbs her in the middle of her work. She loves it because she can complete her job faster and avoid overtime.

20. Money is the most appreciated compensation for her

The beta female employee knows the worth of money. She knows that money can’t buy happiness… but there are definitely many things that can make her happy and money is useful!

By her outfits, you probably know that she’s a trendy woman. She knows how to look her part at any instance. She invests a lot in fashionable pieces and it also boosts her confidence. But she’s a shopaholic and might even overindulge in it.

So, if you want to compensate her for her hard work, try to include a bonus other than certificates or awards.

Instead of celebrating her success with a grand party, give her a raise. But if they deny that, a shopping gift card is great too.

A word from ThePleasantPersonality

If you’re a hiring manager, now you’re aware of how skilled she is. Don’t believe in rumors and let her prove her capabilities.

If you’re a beta female’s boss, treat her right and be grateful for her contribution to the firm.

But if you’re her coworker, don’t be shy to learn from her working style. Even if you’ve been in this field for years, it doesn’t harm to learn new things. Respect her, and you’ll benefit the most!
