Pros and Cons of being an Omega Male - ThePleasantPersonality

If you want to know about the pros and cons of being an omega male are on your mind, put on your seatbelts! Here, I’ll let you know everything. Starting from how perfect right to how flawed this personality type is.

But if you know an omega male around you, don’t judge him too fast. Rather, let me help you understand his standpoint.

So, let’s begin!

Pros of Being An Omega Male

Being at the bottom of the socio-sexual hierarchy, people always judged men with traits of an omega male. Though this personality type was always looked down on, you have a lot to flaunt. So, let’s know everything here! 

1. You won’t follow others’ lead blindly

Some people look down on you while others are just worried for real. So, you often receive advice from others. However, you’re wary of people’s intentions. Whenever you sense any faint negativity in the suggestions, you don’t take it.

You also don’t pay heed to others’ advice when you already have your own plan. You never let others use you like their puppet and protect yourself with alertness.

2. You can decide for yourself

When there’s any troublesome or urgent situation in your life, you take charge. You don’t wait for others’ ideas and help. You’re an independent man and can cater to your needs whenever you want.

You want to rely on yourself when you make major decisions in life. You don’t follow others’ paths blindly. It’s because you know you and your troubles are different from theirs. It’s all because you know what you want.

3. You protect your innocence at all cost

Deep within, you’re still an innocent child and you don’t feel ashamed about it. People often tease you for still having childish tastes and acting like a kid when you’re alone. But that doesn’t discourage you from enjoying your life your way.

You know what pleases you and you’re fine even if others judge your choices. You protect your innocent side from the mean bystanders.

4. You support everyone without second thoughts

When someone is in a pickle, you never leave them alone. Whether it’s a resourceful person or a penniless one… you help them out without prejudice.

You don’t feel that a rich man shouldn’t get help because he has enough. Or that a poor man’s fate is to die miserably and turn a blind eye to them. Rather, you believe you must help them and stay true to yourself.

5. People don’t feel judged around you

When people make wrong decisions, everyone around them judges them. Even their most trustworthy loved ones become skeptical. Others push them away and look down on them even without knowing their circumstances.

But you never treat others unfairly much like a sigma male. Unless you know about others’ situations, put yourself in their shoes, and truly know what it means to face their circumstances… you never pass unfair judgment.

6. You can make a career anywhere!

Due to your omega male personality traits, you’re curious about academic and professional choices. You always seek new and unique opportunities and don’t follow the crowd. You want to experience something new and not stick to the traditional choices.

This helps you understand yourself and explore the best profession for yourself. Since you’re also interested in almost everything, you can make a career in any field.

7. You know how to relax

Omega male personalities also make you a fun-loving and light-hearted man. You know that life is to be enjoyed and not worried about. You don’t take every moment of your life too seriously and have fun with harmless pranks.

You add a hint of fun and jokes to everyone’s life… even if it’s at the expense of yourself. You can cheer anyone if you set your mind to it.

8. Romantic bonds unless you’re ready is a big NO

Often, men feel pressured to enter romantic relationships because they don’t want to seem undesirable. Especially during the holiday season, they get a partner even if they don’t feel attracted to them.

The reason?

They don’t want others to mock them. Or, they don’t want anyone to set them on a date.

But you don’t play with relationships and people’s hearts because of peer pressure. You’re smarter than that!

9. You’re assertive, not arrogant

Alpha males’ confidence always has a hint of arrogance laced in them. They just can’t express it without putting someone else down.

But omega men like you know better! You are confident and sometimes way more than an alpha man. However, you never try to make others feel insecure.

Even if you know you’re better than the other person, you never spell it out. There’s zero arrogance in your personality type which makes people respect and adore you.

10. Competition doesn’t stress you

Whether in this century or the medieval era, men were always competitive. They want more power, attention, and women. They overachieve at work to get promoted. They show off their riches to get more women to chase them. But when they lose, they can’t handle the rejection,

But omega male personality types make you content with what you have. You only compete with yourself, not with other men!

11. You enjoy your own company

Omega males don’t like to spend time with random strangers, so you’re introverted. You also don’t have too many friends, so you may not always have people to hang out with.

But that’s completely fine for you because you love your solitude. You feel great investing in solo interests like video games or reading books.

Unlike people’s assumption, you don’t stop your loved ones from living life. You let them have fun too.

12. You’re not a selfish lover

Most women get turned off by men because of their selfish demands in relationships. In Particular, alpha men only want to satisfy themselves and not their partners.

But of course, all men aren’t hungry wolves… and an omega male like you proves the existence of the greater good.

After a long day, you care for your partner’s needs and help them unwind. Your foot rubs and back massages intensify their love for you.

13. Empathy is your virtue

Due to your omega male traits, you’re empathetic, i.e., you can feel others’ emotions. You know exactly what a person experiences during trying times. So, you can help them better than anyone else.

You never crack inappropriate jokes when someone feels low. You won’t even blame them for wrong decisions. You know that they never wanted to face that in the first place. You also know how to make them feel better because you know their needs.

14. You’d rather make a close inner circle than large distant bonds

You aren’t a fan of large social media followers… if you’re even on one that is! You know that people online aren’t your true friends. You’re rather more inclined to make only a few friends in real life. You believe in being close friends with people that will care for you.

You’d rather spend quality time with them instead of wasting yourself on a superficial large group of friends.

15. Your humble nature attracts everyone

You are extremely humble because of the traits of an omega personality. But that doesn’t imply you’re weak or an easy target. Rather, you don’t have an ego about anything. You don’t expect others to respect you just because you’re a male or have accomplished more than others.

You like to be modest and never boast about your achievements. You don’t even share your accomplishments with your loved ones.

16. Opinions don’t impact you

You know yourself the best, so others’ opinions don’t harm your self-confidence. You are self-aware, so you take mindful actions at every step of life. So, even if anyone mocks you for your decisions, you don’t mind. You know your reasons and don’t bother to explain yourself to others.

Only people that care for others’ validations get affected by these and you’re simply not one of them!

17. You naturally attract others

Unlike other men, you don’t try to gain any attention at all. You’re introverted and never try to gain the spotlight. Yet you unexpectedly get all the attention on you. You’re naturally charismatic even without much effort.

You become the talk of the town with your gentle nature. Everyone loves you for your kind and compassionate ways and wants to know more about you.

18. You know how to cherish your lover

You’re a romantic person and can do anything to care for your lover. You don’t believe in casual relationships for sexual benefits. Rather, you want to make your partner’s heart skip a beat with your romantic moves.

You’re loyal, understanding, respectful, and everything they can ever desire. This shows that you can show them how wonderful they are. You know how to last your love for ages. 

19. You’re a great talker

You can’t take small talk because you know it doesn’t make sense. There’s no point in knowing how the temperature went down or how many sweaters people wear to deal with the cold.

However, you’re a deep thinker with many impressive thoughts in your mind. You can make great conversations with your unique ideas and opinions. People can be mesmerized by all the concerning thoughts you point out.

20. You’re sincere, genuine, and honest

The best pro of being an omega is your honesty. You never pretend to be someone better just to get attention or greater opportunities. You know what you are and flaunt yourself.

If anyone dislikes any part of you, you don’t hide it to be more likable to them. You never try to gain sympathy or lie about yourself. Instead, all of your actions are full of sincerity.

But I won’t lie to you… you definitely have some flaws. So, let’s know those here…


Cons of Being An Omega Male

The omega personality is put at the bottom of social hierarchies for a good reason. Though you’ll enjoy the major pros of being an omega, there are also some concerning issues like these…

1. You might lose a lot to protect your freedom

You are extremely protective of your independence. You don’t want anyone to interfere with it. You stay away from any platonic and romantic relationship that may need you to sacrifice your freedom.

So, you lose great opportunities to find good friends or a lover. Just because you don’t want to be tied down, you gamble way too high.

2. Jumping between careers may not work out

You’re interested in a lot of things and want to try them all out. However, if you skip between career options, you’ll be on the losing side. You won’t progress in either career path. Instead, you’ll be stuck in the preliminary stages and won’t get any form of satisfaction if you continue this way.

Even if you try out new career paths, there’s no guarantee that you’ll succeed in those. So, decide wisely before making a move.

3. Frequent boredom can wear you out

You get bored so easily that you often set out for an adventure. You want your job to challenge you regularly and knowingly choose harder projects.  If that’s not an option, you go out to explore and take some risks in nature.

Since you always want to be on the edge, this can put you in dangerous situations. Your loved ones might be anxious about your choices or you might lose more than you expected.

You don’t like to follow minor laws. You believe that law and order are way too restrictive and don’t let you live life on your own terms. You often violate the smaller laws for the sake of the thrill.

But this can put you in major legal issues. If you’re not an adult, you’ll get your guardian in trouble too. Even a slight criminal record can wreck your life.

5. Boundary violation impacts your relationships

You don’t have a good sense of boundaries whether for yourself or others. You might offend others due to your lacking sense. This can get in your way of making and sustaining personal connections.

Because you don’t understand boundaries, you often push others’ buttons. Or, you let them violate your boundaries and bring bitterness to your bonds. You never try to set or maintain boundaries.

6. You might regret your introversion later

Since you’re introverted, you only have a handful of friends. You might become lonely as you grow older and hurt your health. All of your friends will be busy with their work and family. They’ll hardly have time for you.

You might also lose opportunities to meet a suitable partner. Love might come way later in your life. If you want to progress in professional life, you’ll miss the chance to make influential connections.

7. You struggle to talk with acquaintances

You’re not good at small talk, so you can’t keep up with new people. Unless you have the same common interests, you can’t talk about deep topics with them. They might not even be interested in your topics.

Suppose an influential person initiates a shallow conversation. You might even offend them because you can’t keep up with them.

8. You never take care of your appearances

You aren’t ugly but your habits make you one. People often ask you to clean up, groom yourself, and focus on hygiene. But you never pay attention to it. For some reason, your appearances aren’t important to you.

This makes you unattractive to potential love interests. Unless they see your polished side, they often judge you based on your looks. You make similar poor impressions in your professional life. Nobody takes you seriously because you are too casual about your appearance.

9. You don’t understand women

Due to your introversion, you have limited social skills. You don’t strike up conversations with strangers, so you don’t know how to react around your crush. Like little kids, your hormones make you want to approach them but you can’t.

You don’t understand how to impress a woman with your words at the first meeting. So, your love life will take time to set off.

10. You never pay heed to others’ words

Though you never express it, you believe you know the best about everything. You ignore others’ advice and do everything you want. This only invites troubles in your life.

You often don’t double-check suggestions and can’t avoid the most obvious dangers. Even if people try to correct you when there’s time, you don’t listen. It further gets in the way of your progress and success.

A word from ThePleasantPersonality

I bet you are tensed about reading the cons of your personality. But don’t be… because you can eventually work on them.  You can definitely improve yourself… and if you don’t know how to, I’ll support you in another of my think-piece!

So, cherish yourself for having so many strong suits… and be open to receiving any help!
