    "OK"

    We've come a long way from the Alpha Male though.

    Which is probably a good thing.

    There needs to be a term for the guy who doesn't want to keep everyone else under this thumb (Alpha) but isn't interested in following anyone else either (Beta). Well adjusted Dude perhaps?

    What is the term or concept for all this as it applies to the female? Alpha Bitch? Beta door mat? What is the term for the one that we probably actually want? Attractive Nurturing Feminine Queen?

    Physical Tan. The guy who doesn't want to lead and doesn't want to follow, but just wants to be judged on the merit of his work, not on his small talk and social skills?

    Ideally, the people who depend on the quality of his work.

    Some people are just straight up craftsmen.

    The "xela male" has a nice ring to it.

    i don't really believe in the concept of an alpha male in the op. this is partly due to human's fallibility in judgement due to bias, prejudice, and subjectivity as well as more commonly lack of or lesser intelligence . who is judging will determine how something or someone will be judged just as much.

    it was a social experiment to find out what people thought of such ideas.
