10 Traits of An Alpha Personality Type You Didn’t Even Realize You Have
You may not necessarily think of yourself of an alpha personality type however there is more to it than meets the eye.
Alpha personalities come across as strong and independent; putting across an air of confidence and purpose in everything they do, and while many people possess these traits, its difficult to use them to your advantage when you don’t even realize you have them.
Being an alpha isn’t about how you see yourself, it’s about how the world sees you. If any of these sound familiar, there’s a good chance you come across as more powerful than you think.
Here Are The 10 Most Common Signs You Have An Alpha Personality Type.

2. You Do What You Say and You Expect The Same From Everyone Else
The words you say have actual value. They aren’t just meaningless promises, they have purpose and you will follow through till the end. If someone tells you they will do something, you fully expect the same in return.

9. You Don’t Do Things For The Approval Of Others
You recognize that while it’s important to realize how those around you feel, you don’t let the approval of others get in the way of your goals. You are not just concerned with impressing others. Instead you follow your heart and prefer to do what makes you happy, and if others don’t like it, it’s not going to stop you from living the life you want to live.
10. You Are A Natural Leader
You often take the lead when nobody else steps forward, it may come across as bossy to some but that is not your intention.

11. You Are A Dedicated and Hard Worker.
Being an alpha, you do what needs to be done to accomplish your goals. When you start a task or job, you get it done until you think it is perfect. There is no space for laziness in your world.
