In popular culture, the hierarchy of male personality types has now grown to seven.
Heard of the alpha? No, I don’t mean Scott McCall or Derek Hale, or some other werewolf. I mean that particular person that seems highly intelligent, confident, successful, and prefers to be in positions of power. That’s what I mean.
Anyway, the alpha male is only one type of male. And we have seven categories. We shall discuss each category to better understand their own tendencies. So, let’s start from the top, shall we?
7 Male Personality Types
Zeta males are independent thinkers who stay true to themselves and don’t change for society. They know who they are on a deep level and have consistent actions and an internally driven mindset in all situations.
Zeta males are not distracted by the opinions of others. They are authentic because they see no need to pretend to be something they’re not. Zeta males create their own rules and standards and live by them, even if they are outside societal norms.
Don’t tell a zeta male what to do because they want to live life on their own terms.
Zeta males have no problem having relationships with equals. Power is not a driver for them. They seek freedom and independence. And because they see all people are equal, zeta males don’t seek power in social situations. They prefer to question and disrupt social norms. They don’t ask people to change for them and they won’t change for others.

No, these don’t come from the Niger Delta.
Delta males are very reserved and tend to be quiet and self-reflective. This personality type doesn’t occur naturally. There is always some experience or trauma that makes the man retreat from the world and back within himself. They’re the most likely personality type to move up, down, or out of the social hierarchy.
These are the men who primarily get the real work done in the world. Delta males take pride in their skills and competence. They don’t want to lead anyone, have no desire to please the alpha male, want respect, and are just successful enough with women to raise families and have children.
They tend to be the “average Joe” in life, and for whatever reason, just want a quiet, normal, and ordinary life. However, some delta males feel unfilled as they get older and start wanting to do something big to leave their mark on the world.
Delta males require people to prove themselves through time and actions before trusting them completely.
