Sigma Male: 20 Personality Traits to Identify Him

What is a Sigma Male?

SUMMARY
A Sigma male is a confident and self-reliant man who likes to stay alone. 

A sigma male aka the lone wolf is a confident, self-reliant, charming, mysterious, and introverted man. He’s not ready to commit to anyone and only has a few friends in his life.

He’s almost the same as an alpha male but he doesn’t have a pack following him. He loves risks and adventures and is a self-aware man. So, if you want to know more about him, keep reading!


Sigma Male Traits

If you know a sigma male in your life, I’m sure you feel you hardly know him… after all, he’s so introverted and hardly expresses himself. So, to know him even better, know his personality traits and understand him here…

1. He doesn’t want to belong anywhere

The sigma male is an introvert and likes to spend time in solitude. He doesn’t want to be in any kind of group… neither as a follower nor as a leader.

Within a group, he must pay attention to everyone’s interests. Others will depend on him to perform according to their standards. He doesn’t fancy the endless responsibilities.

He’s comparable and sometimes even better than an alpha. So, he can easily be the leader and enjoy many benefits. But he prefers dancing to the beat of his own drum.

2. He never tries to prove himself to others

The sigma man knows about his capabilities. He’s extremely aware that he can beat any alpha male around him. He has enough faith in himself and hardly ever tries to convince others about that.

He doesn’t value others’ validation or appreciation to feel good about himself. Instead, he only proves his worth to himself. If he ever doubts his capabilities, he challenges himself in different ways.

3. He rebels against social norms

A sigma male is also known to be morally gray. Now, don’t assume that he’s a criminal, it’s rather a difference in opinions. He doesn’t follow the traditional norms which makes no sense. Instead, he violates them to test their truthfulness.

He never follows rules forcibly until they have legit reasons. He doesn’t want to be a good guy that plays by the rules. He’s pretty much an anti-hero.

4. Silence is valuable to him

Sigma men love silence as it helps them in multiple ways. Due to their introversion, they dislike speaking a lot. They also dislike any sort of superficial small talk. However, when they break the silence, it’s always something important.

In silence, they can also observe their surroundings better. This also turns them into good listeners. So, if you want to vent out to someone, these men know how to make others feel better.

5. He gets women even without trying

Sigma males don’t talk a lot about themselves and seem mysterious to women. Since they go against the grain women can’t help but feel intrigued by them. They want to solve this masculine mystery and have them.

However, sigma men never chase or even try to grab women’sllar attention. Moreover, they don’t even want to commit too fast to anyone. This is partly because they treasure their freedom and just can’t tie themselves down. Partly, they don’t want to settle for shallow relationships.

6. Self-awareness and self-improvement are his forte

The sigma male isn’t delusional at all. He’s one of the best or even better than an alpha. But, he doesn’t assume that he’s invincible. Instead, he knows about his flaws and eagerly works on those. He always desires to become better than his present self.

If anyone constructively criticizes him, he doesn’t feel offended, unlike the alpha male. Instead, he’s glad to have genuine critics.

7. He tries to blend in as much as possible

A sigma man doesn’t want any attention at all. In social situations, he tries to merge with the crowd as much as possible. He doesn’t want anyone to notice him. He’s introverted and hates depthless conversations.

He usually avoids any sort of social setting. But whenever he attends them, he tries to blend in or take refuge in an inconspicuous corner. However, the lone wolf often gains unwanted attention due to his charismatic vibe.

8. He’s a trendsetter without following them

The sigma male is infamous for looking down on trends. Whether it’s the new trends on social media or the latest fashion, he can’t care any less.

So, fitted shirts are more popular nowadays? He’ll still wear his shirts as they are without any alteration. While everyone posts their achievements on social media, he won’t even be active online.

Since he’s so different and still mysterious and successful, he always sets new trends.

9. Hierarchy is not his thing

According to Vox Day’s socio-sexual hierarchy, the alpha males are the most powerful while beta, delta, gamma, and omega follow behind. A sigma male despises and rebels against this concept. He’s an avid believer in equality and judges nobody based on their social status.

He doesn’t cower in front of people with high status. But he’s always grateful and kind to the working class and service workers. To him, everyone is equally intelligent in different areas of their lives.

10. He won’t compromise without benefits

A sigma male is understanding and compassionate. If needed, he adjusts with others whenever needed instead of getting mad and delaying the process. However, he adjusts with others only when that’ll benefit him. He won’t ever help others if he’ll be on the losing side completely.

Just like an anti-hero, he won’t save the world just out of goodwill. He must see something equally beneficial in it to do it.

But these aren’t the only traits, so to know him even better, check out all the traits here.

Wondering if he’s a flawless person or if he has any imperfections at all? Let’s know it here…


Strengths and Weaknesses of a Sigma Male

To sum it up, human beings aren’t ever flawless. So, even the wonderful sigma male isn’t all that wonderful all the time. His personality has some legit issues too. But first, let’s know some strengths here…

Strengths

1. He’s self-reliant

The sigma male doesn’t depend on others for anything. He dislikes group activity because it makes him dependent on others’ performance to reach his goals.

He doesn’t like following a leader as he can’t do things his way. So, he depends solely on himself to fulfill his desires. He also doesn’t need others to show him right and wrong. Even if things don’t follow the plan, he never approaches others.

2. He doesn’t let others control his life

The sigma man is the master of his own mind and he aims to keep it that way. He won’t commit to a lover or take on a big group’s responsibilities. He’s not tied down by things, so he can unfurl his wings and charge toward his goals without second thoughts.

He detaches himself from others which seems selfish. However, this only helps him in the long run to reach unimaginable heights of success.

3. He’s peace-loving

A sigma male loves peace and silence. So, he can’t afford to have any sort of drama in his life. For that, he tries to keep his circle as small as possible. He’s close to a handful of people only.

He understands that everyone is different and has unique perceptions. So, more people with varied views will definitely misunderstand each other and create drama.

To avoid unnecessary troubles, he gets close to as few people as possible.

4. He’s flexible

Alpha and beta males are pretty rigid. The alpha men never compromise and feel this sense of entitlement for being the best or the leader. They want to have everything their way.

On the other hand, beta men are just too lenient. Whenever there’s a clash of opinions, he always lets the other guy win. He never fights for himself and always gets the shorter side of the stick. 

But sigma males know just what they need to do to work on a situation. They can be lenient and even fight for their demands and always maintain a balance.

5. He’s a friendly leader

Both sigma and alpha males are great leaders… but I can guess that you’d like a sigma male leader more. Unlike alphas, he doesn’t expect others to follow his lead blindly.

He doesn’t abuse his power or treat others like puppets. He teaches others by practically setting examples. He doesn’t expect anyone to know everything and treats his team members kindly. Moreover, he doesn’t try to take others’ credit or hard work under his name.

After reading those, I’m sure you can’t even imagine a sigma male having weaknesses. But let’s find the truth here…

Weaknesses

1. He’s a commitment-phobe

If you analyze the sigma male personality traits closely, you’ll notice that he’s emotionally unavailable. His guards are always up and he hardly lets others in his heart. He’s also not ready to settle down, commit to family or friends, or even trust others easily.

This leads to him being a commitment-phobe and having troubles in his relationships later on. Even if he falls in love, he might doubt his feelings. He’ll try to get away from others the moment he feels he’s slipping.

2. He’s socially awkward

A sigma male is an introvert and stays miles away from socializing. He doesn’t want any attention on himself at all. But at times, even they can’t ignore some situations and try to participate in small talk.

However, superficial conversation is just not his thing even if he tried. The lack of emotion in his replies and the straightforward dry conversation without flattery offend the other person. A sigma male faces many troubles due to poor social skills.

3. He might be alone forever

A sigma male can’t commit and is seldom ready to settle in romantic relationships. He’s picky and wants a serious connection when both he and his partner are ready for it. Moreover, he only has a handful of friends and doesn’t make new ones easily.

He’s bound to end up alone without a partner or a friend beside him in the later years. After all, it becomes harder to find a partner in the older years. On the other hand, his friends will become busy with their families. He’ll hardly have anyone around and might even suffer from it.

4. Luxury doesn’t motivate him

The spotlight, public appreciation, others’ validation, etc… doesn’t attract him. A sigma male has eccentric likes which others probably can’t offer or even think about.

It’s hard to motivate him with anything. In the workplace, his employers can’t make him work harder for their goals due to his lack of motivation. It can stunt his personal growth as nothing motivates him.

5. He can’t focus on one thing at once

Sigma males like adventures and one goal at once just don’t make it. So, they often try to have multiple goals in their lives. Even before one plan wraps up he fantasizes about other plans.

To add a hint of excitement and challenge, he’s ready to take up multiple goals. However, this might lead to major troubles if one or more plans don’t work out.

If you’re shocked to know these facts, let me tell you this is only the tip of the iceberg. So, know all of his strengths and weaknesses in detail here.

But wait, are you a sigma male yourself? Want to know what you face for your personality? Let’s talk here…


Pros and Cons of being a Sigma Male

Being a sigma male yourself brings you a lot of benefits. You’re one of the outstanding men around you and almost everyone wants to be like you. So, first, let’s know why they want to be like you here…

Pros

1. People never feel judged by you

When someone’s stuck in a negative situation, people always assume the worst about them. People of different races feel judged the most in these situations.

Others always have a negative notion about them based on race. They talk in absolutes like “I know all *** people are robbers” or “It was only a matter of time until these *** showed their true colors.”

However, you only ever judge after knowing the full truth. So, nobody feels unfairly treated around you.

2. You have high emotional intelligence

Your EQ is extremely high compared to alpha, beta, or other people. You can read the emotions of any room pretty fast.

This is also because you like silence and are a good listener. You know exactly what the other person wants to hear and can calm them with your sharp intuition.

People assume that you’re not good at emotional things and don’t even realize how wrong they are.

3. You’re self-motivated

Due to your sigma male personality traits, you’re blessed with extreme motivation. No amount of failure or blunder drags down your spirits. After every defeat, you only push through harder and stronger. When people criticize your plans and demotivate you, you don’t pay them any mind.

When it’s about your goals, you’re stubborn. This sets you apart from the rest and helps you thrive more than them in the long run.

4. You can deal with any storm

When situations worsen, people usually lose their minds and make more mistakes. However, you never let anything or anyone get the better of your emotions.

If someone tries to hurt you, you don’t react to them. You know that if you show your emotions, they’ll know your weaknesses. You keep a mask on, control your feelings and deal with tough situations.

You find ways to deal with situations by yourself. And once you’re prepared you deal with the troubles like the wolf you are.

5. You’re always ready to grab opportunities

Opportunities always appear in the form of crazy risks. So, most people are afraid of taking them. Even if they promise great growth, people are afraid of losing the existing peace and stability in their lives.

However, as a sigma male, you’re eager about the growth possibilities in your life. You don’t fear instability and charge right through which leads to your growth.

Despite many pros, there are also some cons to your personality. Most people don’t even know about it. So, learn the entire truth of your personality here…

Cons

1. Some treat you like a loner

You’re in love with solitude like if you had the option, you’d have married it. You feel energized when you’re alone.

However, others don’t get your feelings and assume that you’re pretending to be fine or trying to be optimistic. They pity you and force their company on you. But you only feel more uncomfortable with it.

You face such issues almost everywhere and you’re tired of explaining your likes to them.

2. People misunderstand your words

You’re a great person from the heart. You’re emotionally intelligent and intuitive, so figuring out others’ feelings is a piece of cake for you. When people want you to listen to them, you know exactly what to do.

However, when people make shallow conversations, you lose that touch. You can’t show fake emotions and flattery when you know the topic isn’t valuable to either of you. So, people often misunderstand you and get offended.

3. People don’t like your risk-taking nature

Sigma males love to take risks and live life on the edge. Without a little bit of challenge, they don’t feel that they are alive. They always seek a challenging job or take the harder path to enjoy the excitement.

Though it feels great for you, your choices make your loved one anxious. Though sigma males deny all responsibilities for freedom, someone depends on you. Their anxieties worsen your relationships.

4. Your romantic life is in a mess

You only settle for serious relationships and dislike modern-day casual dating and relationships. Usually, you don’t want to settle into romantic relationships, but once you do, you only have eyes for them.

However, your romantic partner can’t understand this because you don’t express yourself clearly. They doubt your feelings and test you out. Since you’re a considerate and dedicated partner, you can’t stand this and give them no second chance.

5. Your beloved solitude might become a curse later

Being an introvert, you love silence and solitude. This is the greatest gift anyone can ever give you. As a form of self-love, you avoid spending time with others, or else you feel drained. You don’t communicate much and try to keep your inner circle from growing.

You neither commit to lovers easily nor open yourself to prospective friends. Though your friends have time now, they eventually won’t.

But there’s a lot more to know, so click here.

You do almost the bare minimum like an alpha male. However, people often say you’re much like him. If you’re also curious about an alpha, let’s check here…


Sigma Male vs Alpha Male

Most say that sigma and alpha males have a lot in common. But they hardly notice the differences and you probably get offended when everyone assumes you’re just like an alpha. So, it’s time to compare yourself with alphas here…

1. Sigma males are flexible but alpha males are rigid

Sigma males are quite adaptable to any situation. If anything doesn’t work out, they know better than to put up fights. They don’t waste their time denying the truth. Instead, with a calm mind, they figure out ways to tackle their situation.

On the other hand, alpha males aren’t flexible at all. They want things to go their and only their way. They are rather stubborn and take too long to accept the truth.

2. Sigma males enjoy small circles unlike alphas

Sigma males are introverted and don’t like to socialize a lot. They also avoid drama and take responsibility for a lot of people. So, they feel more comfortable in a smaller circle. They let their guard down only around a few people and it takes a long time for them to bond.

On the flip side, alpha males are more into creating their own tribe. They expand their connections to grow their circle and dominate them.

3. Sigma males are listeners while alpha males are talkers

Sigma males like silence more than busy talkative moments. They can not only recharge better in silence, but they also focus on deeper aspects of life. So, they also become good listeners and can catch important facts way better than others.

But, alpha males aren’t into listening. They’d rather have others listen to them instead. They only want to boast about themselves, share their views, and have others focus on their words.

4. Sigma males stay low but alpha males attract attention

Sigma males want no attention in their life at all. Even if they make great achievements, they’ll never boast about it. Unlike others, they won’t even post it on social media.

They don’t want others’ validation and are content with just knowing these facts themselves. They even try to blend in any social situation as much as possible.

However, alpha males only want others to know about their power. They want to show others the difference between their positions.

5. They both get many suitors

Sigma males attract women due to their aloof nature. Women just can’t get enough of their mysterious aura. They chase them even though they’re not easy to get. They feel attracted to how down-to-earth they are even after being amazing in everything.

Women that seek a provider partner can’t resist alpha males. Since they take charge of everything and let others sit back, women feel protected around these men.

There are many more differences and similarities between sigma and alpha males. So, check here to get to the crux of it!

But wait, just because people mistake you for an alpha, that doesn’t mean you’re nothing like a beta. So, let’s compare the truth once more here…


Sigma Male vs Beta Male

Since beta males are almost the opposite of alpha males, sigma males are hardly ever compared with beta males. People believe that sigmas and betas are also opposites. But why not check the truth for yourself here?

1. Sigma males are friendly and loyal only towards their close circle. But beta males are friendly and loyal to everyone.

2. Like sigma males, beta males respect everyone equally.

3. Like sigma men, beta males are introverted and avoid communicating.

4. Unlike sigma males, beta men are under confident and conflict-averse.

5. Compared to sigma men, beta males are submissive and agreeable even if it harms them.

Stunned to see some similarities, aren’t you? So, let’s check for more interesting comparisons here…


Sigma Male vs Delta Male

Just as we go down the socio-sexual hierarchy, the chances of comparing a sigma with a delta fall even more. After all, you’re wondering “how can someone comparable to an alpha be anything like a delta male?” But, let’s check the reality here…

1. Similar to sigma males, delta males can deal with any situation without showing emotions.

2. Like sigma males, delta men also need time to trust others.

3. Sigma males don’t blame others for any problem. Whenever things don’t work out, delta males blame others.

4. Sigma males can work on their own issues by themselves. But a delta can’t even notice his issue which delays self-improvement.

5. Sigma males like to stay alone but if it continues they may become lonely in the long run. But delta males feel more lonely because he’s too resentful to forgive anyone and the feelings worsen.

I’m 100% sure you’re all fired up to know the comparison with the next in line. So, let’s get going!


Sigma Male vs Gamma Male

I’ll be honest with you and won’t create any suspense. Gamma males have quite the similarities with sigma males. Yes, surprisingly, they have a lot in common here…

1. Like sigma males, gamma males are also independent and make their own rules. They both have higher life satisfaction.

2. They both want to try out new things and go on adventures.

3. Both men are always aware of their actions and the consequences.

4. Both sigma and gamma men are empathetic towards others.

And now we’re left with the last comparison, so let’s continue!


Sigma Male vs Omega Male

After reading the last comparison, you’re surely confused, to say the least. You don’t even know at this point what to expect. So, let’s get off the chit-chat and get right to the point…

1. Similar to sigma males, omega males don’t care about others’ validation or fame.

2. Like sigma males, omegas like to have a handful of good friends instead of many friends.

3. Omega males, like sigma males, are self-motivated and don’t brood over spilled milk.

4. Just like sigma males, omegas are intelligent and are interested in learning vast things. They might also have some eccentric tastes.

5. Sigma males don’t have good communication skills and they don’t like shallow conversations. But omegas use their vast knowledge to contribute to any convo.

1. Han Solo (Star Wars)

2. Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock Holmes)

3. Bruce Wayne (Batman)

Want to trace a sigma based on their zodiac signs? Let’s talk more here…


Sigma Male Zodiac Signs

In reality, no particular zodiac sign is set for sigma males. Because personality depends more on experiences, upbringing, and perceptions rather than birth date.

However, here are the signs that have extreme similarities with sigma males:

1. Scorpio

Men with Scorpio zodiacs have innate determination in life. They’re always focused and seem pretty mysterious. When they’re passionate about something, they think pretty deeply about it. This way they can deal with any problems about their passions smartly.

Similar to sigma males, they’re also one of the best leader materials. They only ever get close to a few friends. They seek the truth and gain knowledge practically instead of believing in conventional theories. If they feel intrigued, they even dig deeper until they’re satisfied.

They don’t trust others easily and might become manipulative to reach their goals.

2. Capricorns

Male Capricorns are as confident as sigma men. They walk alone and cherish their independence. If they aren’t independent, they believe they can’t grow personally or professionally. They also have immense self-control and charge through with plans.

They don’t give their traitors a second chance and also learn from their mistakes like sigma males.

However, there are some signs which aren’t completely like a sigma male but they still have a remarkable resemblance. So, let’s check them here…

3. Leos

These men are passionate, confident, warm, self-motivated, and humble leaders. They always succeed in their plans with their stubbornness.

4. Sagittarius

They are honest, independent, adventurous, and deep thinkers. They dislike clingy people and have trouble committing or taking responsibility. They can actualize their dreams once they set their mind on them.

Curious how sigma males act in their professional life? Well, here are some inputs…


Sigma Male at Work

The sigma male is quite the rebel, so it’s completely okay to judge whether he’ll be a good addition to your team or is better off as a contract employee or freelancer. C’mon, let’s know more about his professional life actions here…

1. He’ll always follow his own rules

A sigma male rule is to follow his own wishes in everything. A sigma male employee never wants to follow others’ rules without knowing a reason. He has his unique morals and ethics even in the workplace.

Especially, he won’t follow the conventional rules without testing them. Instead, he’ll test out other methods to learn why not those. This also helps them challenge themselves and feel refreshed.

2. He prefers a peaceful workplace

Sigma males enjoy the silence and become more productive without noise. They always want to be in a silent place. He can’t make idle chats in between work even during the lunch break. Moreover, a place with background noise like a factory is pretty distracting.

He can’t focus on his work in a busy area. But, he’ll do great if he’s left in absolute silence or even in a place with natural sounds in the surroundings.

3. Office parties aren’t his thing

Due to their introversion, sigma males don’t like to talk a lot. If possible, they’ll skip every work party even if it offends their boss and coworkers. He’s just not into idly talking and making connections with others.

Others believe that new connections can help them grow. But\ he’s self-reliant and rather carves his own way than depend on random people he met at parties. Even if he joins, he won’t socialize and try to stay hidden in corners.

A sigma male boss might be missing from his own work party.

4. He might chase away the clients

Suppose you force a sigma male employee to join the office party. He’ll comply with your orders but it’s not a good idea to force him to communicate with special guests. His social skills are poor and your clients might assume he’s arrogant due to the lack of flattering language.

His disinterest will be evident in his voice and even body language. It’s better to keep him away from important guests unless he wants to.

5. He leadership qualities are praiseworthy

As a team leader, he’s absolutely the best. He’ll always respect his team members and won’t expect the impossible from others. Though a sigma male employee doesn’t want to lead a team, he’s the dream leader.

He even treats his team kindly after making mistakes. Instead of losing his mind, he teaches others by showing them a bit at a time. He even lets his team members take the credit.

If you wish to get right to the depth, check here.

But if you wanna know whether your job opening suits him or not, here you go…


Sigma Male Careers

Based on a sigma male’s temperament, some jobs are better for him while others might not stimulate him enough. So, if you’re a sigma male, it’s better to know your options better… while if you’re hiring, that’s another reason to know what jobs he’s made for here…

1. Computer Programming

Sigma males are a great fit in computer programming because it’s pretty challenging. They can deal with this profession better than most others because they like to solve complex things.

This job also allows them to avoid socializing and they can even work from home because they only ever need a computer system and a stable connection. They can also work from anywhere else like the park and connect with nature while they change their environment.

2. Business Owner

As a business owner, a sigma male is a great fit for this. Sigma males don’t like to work for others, so working for their own business is a great idea. Though they don’t like to take on others’ responsibilities, they’re awesome leaders. So, even if it’s a bit of an inconvenience, a sigma male can make this work!

He’ll add his own twist and nobody can order him around or control his plans. He can shape his own business as he likes and enjoys working.

3. Stunt Performer

Sigma men think that a life without risks and adventures isn’t living… it’s just barely passing the day. So, if they are physically fit and active, this job might become their passion. He can be a stunt double for actors or join a group of performers and perform live on the stage.

He can also start his own stunt performance coaching center and create new stunt artists or begin his own performance group. It all depends on his investments.

4. Psychologist

The sigma male is emotionally intelligent and can understand others’ emotions pretty well. He’s also a great listener and knows exactly what the other person tries to say. So, as a psychologist, he can understand the other person’s thoughts pretty well and knows what can help them out.

He can tell them the things that can improve their mood and advise them on working on their life. Moreover, he’s also patient, compassionate, and non-judgmental. All of these make him the best mind doctor!

5. Freelancer

This one goes without saying that whichever field a sigma male works in, he can try being a freelancer. Being a full-time contractual worker is hectic for him as he can’t lead his life his way.

He’ll hardly have any control over his life and will be played with according to his senior’s whims. He can’t take an off when he needs to and won’t have much say over the workload. A sigma male hates this, so being a freelancer gives him the much-desired freedom.

No, that’s not the end! A sigma male has many more options to choose from… while he’s the worst fit for some jobs. You can find out about them all here

But are you someone in his personal life? Wondering how his personality impacts his relationships? Here you go…


Sigma Male Relationship

A sigma male hardly has many people around him… so, if you’re one of those lucky close ones, power to you! You’re definitely unique and special to him to be a part of his inner circle.

But, he can act pretty weird and put off his loved ones often. So, know more about his thoughts here…

1. He wants his space and freedom

For a sigma male, his personal space and independence are precious. He doesn’t want to be tied into complicated relationships or commitments. Whether you’re his parent, best friend, or lover, he won’t make any concessions when his independence and personal space are on the line.

He knows when to focus on others and empathize with them. However, he might come off as selfish about his needs sometimes.

2. He won’t interfere with your independence

Just as a sigma male loves his independence, he also wants you to be the same. He won’t expect you to serve him and is quite self-reliant. The only thing he expects from his loved ones is to not depend on him too much. He doesn’t want them to add to his responsibilities.

So, he’ll always encourage others to become self-dependent financially and emotionally. When anyone is in trouble, he’ll ask them to try solving things by themselves first.

3. He’ll attend events only if you’re special

He’s introverted and isn’t big on socializing. Even if his loved ones invite him to parties, he’ll often turn them down. If the parties only include his close circle, he might still drop by for a few minutes. But otherwise, he’ll always avoid social events.

However, if the other person is extremely special to him, he might bear it. He’s ready to do anything for his close ones.

4. He won’t ever play blame games

He’s self-aware and knows when he goes wrong. He isn’t oblivious to his mistakes and won’t ever wrongfully judge or blame you for his own mistakes. Instead, when he notices his mistakes, he starts correcting his issues by himself.

However, if he doesn’t notice things and others criticize him constructively, he won’t mind. Instead, he’ll try to figure things out on his own.

5. He’s an honest guy

He’ll always say things as it is and never lie to others. Even if it’s shameful or he feels guilty about something, he won’t hide things. He doesn’t believe in making excuses or covering the truth with flattery.

His direct words might sometimes offend others and push them away. But he only wants to be honest in his relationships. He’ll never break your faith in him.

There is a lot more to know about his relationships. To know about that and his dream partner, check here.

Speaking of his dream partner, are you that lucky one? If you are, let me tell you a few things here…

Being a sigma male’s partner isn’t easy because he’s too closed off for his own good! So, I can understand your worries and anxieties about his feelings and commitment toward you. So, while dating a sigma male, keep these in mind…

1. Don’t tie him down

A sigma male treasures his independence, so don’t ever try to cage him. Usually, he doesn’t want to be tied down with relationships and others’ responsibilities.

But if he’s dating you, he’s pretty serious about it. Be grateful for the faith he placed in you. Don’t get jealous just because other women feel attracted to him. He’s the serious kind, so he won’t cheat on you.

2. Never violate his boundaries

A sigma male has strict boundaries about his space and time. He won’t communicate his boundaries because he’s introverted and has poor communication skills.

However, he’ll always spend alone time in silence. So, try to understand his bare minimal necessities to feel comfortable in life.

3. Don’t overthink and try to adapt his ways

Due to his introversion, you might often feel left out. You might not always get his attention. Or, if he’s busy, he might be gone for days. Don’t panic or overthink his actions. He still loves you, so slowly get accustomed to his ways.

Become as free-spirited as him and go MIA for a few days. Depend on yourself during crises and give a tough fight to live. He’ll yearn for you, even more, when he sees you stopped chasing.

4. Sometimes, remind him you’re there

Not all sigma males are the same, so his reactions might vary. So, if he still doesn’t pay attention to you after doing everything, it’s time to push through.

Clearly communicate your needs from the relationship. Don’t hide your feelings or play mind games. Of course, you might feel insecure, but don’t beat around the bush.

5. Never make him do anything forcibly

You can only express your needs and hope he accepts your terms. Don’t coerce him into anything he dislikes because it won’t work out. Ask him to compromise but never expect him to change. Otherwise, the relationship won’t last for long.

Umm… so, you’re not his lover but admire him a lot? If you want to be just like him, let’s get down to work here…


How to be a Sigma Male?

This charismatic lone wolf has numerous strengths… and not to mention, he’s so cool and mysterious and all the women want him. So, it’s only natural to wish to become a sigma male. But that path isn’t easy, so let’s know what kind of life you must lead…

1. Be confident

Believe in yourself and be confident about everything. Whether it’s a good or bad thing about you, trust yourself and avoid feeling insecure.

Act how you do when you’re all alone in all areas of your life. No, don’t show your vulnerabilities but be comfortable with your personality.

Even if you currently have more beta male personality traits, acceptance is the first step to being a sigma male. If someone criticizes you for not having any filter, ignore them like they don’t exist.

2. Avoid being aggressive in whatsoever situation

During crises, most people can’t stay calm. They naturally react to it and show their emotions easily. However, that gives away your weaknesses easily. Any enemy around you will take advantage of you once they notice it.

So, learn to mask your emotions when things go out of hand. Keep a poker face and don’t let others know your thoughts. If you’re extremely anxious, take a moment away from everyone and control yourself. Remember, the lone wolf walks alone and never lets the enemies know his thoughts.

3. Be friendly with your team members

If you’re in a team in your professional or academic life, be kind to everyone whether you’re a team member or the leader. Share your knowledge by leading by example. Don’t expect others to know everything. Be understanding of your team member’s troubles.

Don’t try to dominate them and instead be one of them. Be a reliable person but don’t depend on them. Never snatch others’ credit and let them get recognized for their effort.

4. Talk less and listen more

One of the major signs of being a sigma male is his silence. He’s in love with silence and even spends long hours away from others. He doesn’t talk much and relishes the silence. In silence, he notices many details and can make more aware decisions.

So, try to talk less, listen to others more without interruption, and keep all distractions away from yourself. You’ll also become a good listener like a sigma male this way.

5. Work on self-awareness

Be more aware of your flaws and perfections like a sigma male. He knows what he owns and lacks which helps him correct himself and thrive more than others. He always aims to improve himself and never feels shy about being in the wrong.

So, try to identify where you went wrong and what you must work on. If you don’t know how to work on yourself, seek help from trustworthy people. Or, if you can’t identify your flaws, ask them.

Of course, that was too few steps to become a true sigma male. So, check my free guide to become a full-fledged sigma!

On the other hand, if you’re the sigma male yourself, let me share some advice here…


What to do if you’re a Sigma Male?

Being a sigma male is a glorious thing from afar… but only you know your struggles. Your life is a battle every day and your temperament doesn’t truly help you. So, to get rid of some inconveniences in your life, listen to me out…

1. Don’t push others away

You don’t like to expand your social circles. You feel more comfortable in a small circle because you dislike drama and even people with ill intentions. You can’t accept anyone in your circle easily because you know that ill-wishers can easily enter your life this way.

However, give others a chance before you judge them. You have every reason to be wary of others, but that doesn’t mean everyone is suspicious. Instead, take your time to understand them.

2. Take more aware risks

Being a sigma male, you love risks and want to feel challenged at every point of your life. You do things differently to experience the possible risks. But, what if the risks are too bad to handle?

Well, you’ll probably adapt to a different lifestyle. But if someone depends on you, it’ll change their life for the worse. You might demand them to become independent and improve their lifestyle by themselves. But consider their situation before you demand that.

3. Express yourself in close bonds

You’re a silent person and don’t talk a lot until it’s something valuable. That’s alright in any formal area like work, school, or any business place. But don’t do the same in your personal life, especially not to your close ones.

If you don’t express yourself, communication troubles will spring up from everywhere. Your loved ones will misunderstand you and a lot of drama will kick in. So, add honest and clear communication to your life. If you want space or some silent time, tell your people that along with the reasons.

4. Never avoid your basic responsibilities

You don’t like to commit or take responsibility and expect everyone to be self-dependent. However, do this only with your acquaintances. Control the same urges around your loved ones.

Suppose your family depends on you financially and they supported you until you grew up. Don’t leave them when they need your support. Even if you don’t like them, they are your responsibility, so don’t ignore them.

Or, if your lover is in trouble and you asked them to try to solve their issues independently. However, they still want your help. That’s an emergency, don’t ignore them. They are out of options, so help!

5. Improve your social skills

Due to your poor social skills, people often misunderstand your intentions. Just because you’re bored and disinterested in shallow conversations, you don’t seem eager to talk to them. The lack of emotional responses offends others and hurts your social connections.

You don’t want to make connections, but it can be useful later on. So, even if you exchange pleasantries for a few minutes, act more warmly. This is only possible if you practice socializing instead of avoiding it.

If you’re wondering if you can’t deal with your problems easily, you’re partly right… because I can help you even more here!

This way, he’ll become comfortable in your presence.

4. Lead the way with constructive criticism

Sigma males are self-aware, so they know they’re regular human beings. They aren’t arrogant or proud about being flawless just because they’re better than most. They are aware of their mistakes and are always open to correcting them.

So, don’t expect flawless results from them. And whenever you find faults with them, never use backhanded comments. Be direct about the mistakes and suggest ways to overcome them.

5. Be fair to everyone

A sigma male doesn’t care about hierarchy. He doesn’t try to be a high-class people’s bootlicker. He’ll never treat a person poorly just because of their inferior social status. He dislikes people who change their attitude based on the other person’s financial or social power.

So, mind your manners around him. It’s okay if you want to play extra nice to your superiors. But don’t hurt anyone just because you have power or are better off than them.
