I love reading and sharing about goddesses - feminine power that has elevated my life but so overlooked by today's society.
Stop Working Yourself to Be an Alpha Woman
If you’ve come across this post, the chances are that you’re conflicted about your standing as a powerful female and want to figure some things out. If you want to put your concerns regarding power to rest, you’ve come to the right place.
What is a Beta Female?
When you hear the word beta, you feel like you aren’t special enough or that you might not stand out. However, that is not the case. There has been a rising obsession with becoming the alpha; women go head-to-head to prove they’re the alpha female. But truth be told, not every woman can become an alpha, and that’s okay. If every woman in the world was an alpha, the world would have crashed and burned already, and with everything that’s going around, I don’t think anyone wants that.
Beta females are known to be compassionate, caring, and capable. Beta females are sweet and supportive, holding up the other women around them and helping them grow. In a world obsessed with alphas, you need to be a beta. Just as everyone is not born a leader, not everyone is an alpha; however, leaders wouldn’t be able to rule if there weren’t any betas beside them. After all, what would Batman do without Robin?
Why Beta Females Are So Needed Right Now
1. They are compassionate
While there is nothing wrong with being an alpha female, they are often known to stick to the facts and can be a little harsh sometimes. Beta women, on the other hand, are known to be compassionate and friendly. If they're in management positions, they're the person to go to if you want to be heard.
2. They are confident
While there are many stereotypes about beta females being fidgety and uncertain, they couldn't be farther from the truth. Beta females are not only confident they are smart and talk when their points will have the largest impact. They stay quiet willingly until they know they can make a difference and get through to others.
3. They help people grow
Unlike alpha females that might be preoccupied with their own success, beta females know how to strike a balance between work and life. They will try and help anyone who needs help, and this results in them being more likable in professional situations.
4. They keep the group together
Beta females are often the ones keeping the group together; they aren't afraid of calling out alpha females when they mess up and are humble enough to help other females grow. This aspect of their personality results in them being the life of the party and the one person no one can’t function without. Needless to say, they carry this responsibility amazingly.
5. They are the unofficial life coach you need
Unlike alphas, beta females will take out time to listen to your problem and give you great advice. They will point out your shortcomings (if need be) and push you to take risks when necessary. Beta females have incredible people skills and, therefore, often have a group of people wanting to be their friends.
6. They are emotionally mature
Beta females are emotionally mature, and that makes them wonderful people to hang out with. Unlike alphas, they aren't petty at times; they're the right combination of being empathetic and not letting it interfere with their work. That is also a reason why they have long-lasting relationships.
7. They are smart
Beta women are smart. They know when to go head-on into the storm and when to sweet talk themselves around the problem. They know when to show force and when to sit back and see things play out. This makes them great at management positions.
8. They are better lovers
Unlike alphas who care about themselves, beta females know how to strike a balance. Not only will they ensure that you have fun in a relationship, but they'll also have a good time too. They will be assertive enough to not let you walk over them but also humble enough to know when they're wrong.
9. They are the best shopping partners
If you want to go shopping and are looking for a partner, any beta female will do great. Not only are they great shoppers, but their compassion also makes them good listeners too. This means that they will listen to your specifications and shop according to your needs rather than forcing you into buying something that blows your set budget.
10.They have higher tolerance levels
They also have higher tolerance levels, which means that they aren't as intimidating as alphas; they are approachable and more tolerant of other's behaviors. I can't tell you how many times I've seen beta females calm alpha females down from a fight. Beta women are capable of understanding both sides of the story and assisting others in making the right decision.
11. They have a positive outlook
Beta females have a positive outlook on life. They aren't as competitive as alpha women and that gives them great sportsman spirit and also makes them more fun to hang out with.
12. They are loyal friends and partners
Beta women are more loyal friends and partners. Unlike alpha women who think about themselves, beta women are accommodating and compromising. They will always try to find the middle ground and make sure everyone involved has a good time.
13. They are fond of introspection
While alpha women are stubborn, beta women are not. If something doesn't go great, they will realize it and be the first one to apologize. They often engage in introspection, which means that they have to realize when they're at fault and work to ensure that it does not happen again.
14. They are open to advice
Once beta females figure out that they have a problem, they are open to advice. They listen to reason and make an effort to get out of the tough situation with an open mind. Alphas tend to always do things their way and not cater to other's opinions on the matter, which at times causes problems.
15. They are financially responsible
Beta females are financially responsible; they are aware of their spending habits. Alphas, on the other hand, have a greater chance of going bankrupt down the line as they spend without caution and often don't take advice.
16. They are not overly assertive
Unlike alpha females who want to control everything, beta females are often more laid back and open to other opinions. They don’t push people around and therefore are more likely to be everyone's favorites.
17. They are great social media personalities
Beta females can also be great social media personalities as they are more relatable and humbler. Not only are they compassionate, but they are also often more truthful and therefore have a larger following.
18. They know when to take risks
Beta women also know when to take risks which is why they make sound decisions. Alpha females often jump headfirst into any situation that can lead to various problems. Beta females are masters of strategy and execution and, therefore, successfully minimize risks.
19. They speak when spoken too
While many may think that beta females are shy, it is nothing more than a stereotype. They only speak when spoken to, or they wait their turn. They are easy to speak too, and won't try to bore others with never-ending stories.
20. They hate drama
Last but not least, they hate drama. Unlike alphas who strive for drama, beta females are comfortable in their element and are straight up with everyone. There are no hidden meanings in what they say, and this makes it easy to hang out around them and have a good time.
The poll is actually a trick question! As unique individuals, we come from a myriad of experiences and shouldn't be defined based on a stereotype. While you might be predominantly an alpha woman, you will still have traits from a beta stereotype. You might be a mix of both characteristics or flexible enough to turn some traits on and off during different settings. Be aware of whether you feel comfortable with these traits or not, if you are forcing yourself to be someone you are not, you will feel uncomfortable, and "alarm bells" will ring off in your head. Take some time to feel your emotions and by evaluating yourself internally, you will know what type of traits serve you best. Perhaps a 20% alpha and 70% beta and 10% of "other type of stereotypes".
Remember an alpha or beta stereotypes are created as a reference and not a mould to fit into.
Beta females or beta traits, are essential to the world order and aren't less than anyone. Make peace with the fact that you are special, and no one can take your place; let go of the prevalent stereotypes. Know that there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to power dynamics; you might be an alpha at school and a beta at home. You are a dynamic person; don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
