A pack of animals typically has an alpha, a beta and so on, and humans do the same. Both men and women can be split into the same six personality types, but there are differences between the sexes. It can be interesting to classify people into these types in order to better understand their behaviour. Express.co.uk reveals everything you need to know about the six female personality types to figure out which one you are.
Just like the alpha male, the alpha female is confident, a leader. She stands out from the crowd because she knows her power and is confident in her abilities, actions and emotions.
The alpha female doesn’t always ‘run in her pack’, which means she is happy being alone and doesn’t need reassurance from a posse.
They might not have lots of close friends, but the alpha female is popular and well-liked.
The self-assurance of an alpha female means she is secure enough in herself not to bring down others and will stand up for what is right.
The alpha female is too busy taking care of herself and her loved ones and focussing on what truly matters to sink low and gossip.
Alpha women are likely to be successful in their careers because no one perceives them as a pushover, they are hard-working and they have the charisma and charm to win doubters over.
The beta female is often misinterpreted as weak, but this is not the case.
Compared to the alpha, the beta is more submissive and unreactive.
This person tends to go with the flow and likes to avoid conflict.
Instead of speaking up and saying their opinion, the beta female prefers to stay quiet to save herself from drama.
The beta is anxious, often introverted, and not very active or forward when it comes to getting what she wants or meeting new people.
While the beta is extremely kind and loving, don’t take their kindness for weakness.
Even though the beta wants approval and wants to help others, she won’t allow herself to be disrespected.
The delta is similar to the beta but she is more into her finances and appearances.
Some people say the delta was an alpha but bad experiences have turned her into a delta.
The delta is quite reserved and self-deprecating, but she is extremely loving in the relationships and friendships she has.
This person has the ability to connect with people through excellent communication skills, but she has to get past the initial awkwardness and trust issues when she first meets someone.
The delta is reluctant to form bonds with new people because she is quite shy and doesn’t like being the centre of attention.
This is often because she is very self-conscious, choosing to stay home or stay quiet because she is insecure about her appearance.
The delta is very switched on and practical, but they can often seem pessimistic.
The sigma female has some alpha qualities, but they’re deeper thinking and more emotional.
The sigma is super confident which means everyone’s eyes are drawn to her because she’s very intriguing.
However, this often comes across as very frosty, intimidating or unapproachable if the sigma is not careful.
The sigma will step up and be a leader if necessary, but they prefer to do their own thing and work independently.
For the sigma, working hard with their eyes on the prize is easy and they aren’t swayed by the opinions of others.
On the other hand, the sigma is very emotional and has the tendency to get attached to other people – whether it’s good for them or not.
They are very loyal friends and lovers and will drop everything to be there for you if they need you.
This person will hold a grudge, but they’ll also stick by their loved ones no matter what.
People are attracted to the sigma female because she is very mysterious.
The omega is similar to the bookish, shy stereotype you see on screen.
They’re very introverted, reserved and sensitive, and would rather be relaxing at home alone than at a party.
Although the omega person keeps herself to herself, if she makes a connection with someone (friendly or romantically), she has the ability to build very strong bonds with others.
While omega women can come across as timid and sweet, keeping their emotions bottled up can lead to explosive outbursts, panic attacks and poor mental health.
This personality is extremely clever, likely to have lots of hobbies, and loves to learn.
The omega finds it difficult to become close to someone romantically because of shyness, but they are extremely romantic, passionate and loyal.
