You might want to define it then ...

Gathering my want...

Alpha is a leading individual, not necessarily on the whole tribe/society level, but (for example) in some field/domain, or of some group of people.

So it's about perceived extrinsic status?

It is not necessarily a formal status. (Spelling out bickering will not show the best of us, by the way.)

There is usually a large correlation between internal, external and behavioral status. Incongruence is not appreciated by women.
