Some anti-Alphas may be Alpha wannbes that just couldn't make the Alpha grade.

Sort of like the non-athletic type who "hates the jocks" or the plain jane that "just can't stand" the cheerleaders.

Alphas are He2+, and the existence of anti-neutrons and anti-protons is recognized, then yes, there must exist anti-alphas.

However, since betas may be either electrons or positrons, it seems that there is no such thing as an anti-beta.

I think that's what psychiatrists call "Fear of Failure" or "Fear of Success".

"Problem with Authority"? Nah, psychiatrists have a disorder for everything...it's how they make sure they always have business!

Alphas are not necessarily "bossy". Personally, I really dig alpha males -- as long as they're the right kind of alpha. The kind that is so comfortable with themselves that they don't have to boss people around and don't have to play mind-games or ego-trips to maintain their alpha status. Being an alpha female, this type of male gives me the perfect personality match. Woe be to the alpha male though that does attempt to inflict the mind-games or ego-trip on me...you'll go down in flames 'cause homey don't play that game.

Been told by a few I was an alpha female. Do I boss people around? I don't think I do, but I do know what I want. Will go after it if i want it badly enough. I don't seek anyones approval. Other people opinions about me doesn't concern me. You can't make everyone happy and I don't sit around worrying about what they think.
