Pros of Being an Alpha Female
The alpha female personality is at the top of the socio-hierarchy. So, it comes with many fabulous advantages. However, make sure that you don’t expect anything excessive here…
1. Your early plans prevent wrong choices
Even before you’re close to your dreams, you have a clear vision of the goals. You plan way before time about the goals and the ways to reach them.
So, when it’s actually time to work on those, you don’t feel puzzled. You just gotta follow the plan you created.
2. You don’t give up on your goals easily
Being an alpha girl doesn’t promise that there are no setbacks for you. You also face many troubles in your life and fail more than once.
You might take a moment to curse yourself and your luck. But you never let that affect you in the long run. You know better than to give up.
3. You truly listen to others
Nobody knows this but you have good listening skills. You like getting attention but don’t make everything about the clout. When someone needs to be heard, you let them be.
Only insecure people want to steal others’ limelight and you’re not one. This eventually made you a good listener.
4. You say: “Risks? Bring it on!”
You have an adventurous bone in you, so you never back down from risks. Instead, you see them as rare opportunities and accept the challenge.
This only helps you grow much more than your peers. With your good foresight, you also identify the profitable risks.
5. Nobody can change your mind
Your opinions aren’t the same as others. For instance, you don’t give toxic and unfaithful partners multiple chances.
You don’t show your vulnerabilities or open your heart easily to protect yourself. You’re also ambitious and might even be employed in masculine jobs.
People often try to talk you out of it. But you stick to your principles till the end!
6. There’s no hesitation when you state your mind
Owing to your alpha female traits, you never feel shy to express your mind. No matter how different you think from others, you can say it out loud.

10. You won’t compromise your independence
Many assume that dating an alpha female is burdensome and boring because they don’t play the “damsel-in-distress”. You’re physically, emotionally, and mentally independent even in your relationships.

12. Your high EQ makes you the best
You’re bossy and demanding but you know your limits thanks to your high emotional intelligence. You know how your emotions can affect others.

22. You never claim to be flawless

If anyone ever mentions your flaws, you don’t feel awkward about them and deal with them sportingly. Instead, you openly accept them so you can learn skills and overcome them.
23. You never try to control

“You feel better by putting the shade on other women. You’re not a family woman. You can’t love.” People always have poor opinions about you.

But does the alpha label only bring ultimate happiness in your life? Let’s know that here…
Cons of Being an Alpha Female
Nobody will tell you about it but being an alpha woman has many troubles too. So, it’s better to know those and start working on them while you still have time!
C’mon, let’s dig deeper here…
1. Your intimidating vibes only get you more enemies
Due to your intimidating aura, people often feel that you look down on them. They feel judged, mocked, and disrespected. So, they try to make your life harder instead of focusing on your life. You make enemies even without doing anything for your aura.
2. People feel self-conscious and jealous when you boast
In social settings, you can’t help but share the stories of your adventures and accomplishments. But not everyone is fortunate in your circle.
Some people struggle to stabilize their life and stay low. Your boasts feel like personal attacks to them and your relationship with them worsens.
3. You’re not ready to show vulnerabilities
According to public opinion, you’re confident, feisty, and independent. Jealous people only want to find your weaknesses and attack you.
So, unless you trust the other person, you can’t be yourself in front of them. You always fear you’ll be in trouble if you share your vulnerabilities and hide your weak side.
4. Even when you’re in trouble, you don’t seek help
Alpha women are infamous for being self-sufficient. So, you can’t possibly ask for help and show that you depend on others. For you, it’s a sign of accepting defeat and being weak.
So, you’d rather worsen the situation than get support from others. This itself invites more trouble in your life.
5. No matter how balanced your life is, your career comes first
Though you balance your personal and professional life, it’s not that simple. If you have yet to succeed professionally, you don’t add distractions like a romantic relationship.
So, unless you grow and develop professionally, you won’t get into relationships. You’ll take a long time to begin a family.
6. Your cold attitude obstructs new relationships
You built a wall around your heart so that nobody can get close to you easily. Unless it’s someone close, you don’t let your guard down. You know that there are too many hyenas out there.
However, you can’t easily build precious friendships and relationships because of this.
7. Lack of thrill bores you too fast
You always want to learn something new whether it’s in the form of formal courses or thrilling situations. But life never follows the same path forever.
On some days, life is just peaceful without many incidents. You might feel super bored of those days.
8. Everyone misunderstands you
Since you’re the alpha female, people often assume that you’re flawless. When they know that you’re not, they blame you for tricking or lying to them. Or, jealous people assume the worst about you and share bad rumors.
This is backed by a 2019-study about the changing perceptions of alpha females. It’s bound to make you feel low.
9. Your loud opinions piss people off
When you know something better or know the correct version of something, you can’t keep it down. You share it so that people know things right and be perfect like you.
But they feel more offended because you “always prove them wrong”. Your close relationships become sour because of this habit.
10. The bossy attitude only makes people around you rebellious
At work or school, you’re a strict leader. To satisfy your perfectionist nature and help everyone succeed, you guide everyone even through the smallest steps.
But they just feel disrespected and belittled for it and eventually rebel against your leadership skills. If you micromanage, chaos will take over the team.
11. Being territorial may not always work in relationships
As an alpha woman, you can’t stand the sight of any prospective rivals around your romantic partner. Your territorial nature forbids them from associating with threats. But this is a sign of distrust and can destroy your relationship for good!
12. You’re too tired of helping others
Since you’re intelligent, you have a solution to every problem. So, people often seek you to help them out with advice. However, like any other human being, you aren’t always in a good mood.
But you support others even when you don’t want to as you feel fulfilled from it. You push yourself and judge your value based on that.
13. People ask you to settle for less
You can’t stand a toxic or disloyal partner and kick them out of your life without a second thought. However, women around you don’t understand your boundaries.
They often complain about how easily you give up on your relationship(s). You hate how people around you don’t understand your standards in love.
A word from ThePleasantPersonality

Instead, take your time registering all the information. If required, check the cons once more, so you don’t misunderstand anything.
Only then begin working on yourself with a fresh mind. Don’t pressure yourself into anything, and everything will be sorted!
