Spanish word. I don't think there's a direct english word translation.

1. Having an unusually high or exaggerated sense of masculinity. Including an attitude that aggression, strength, sexual prowess, power and control is the measure of someone's manliness. Also, a machismo man feels having these traits entitles him to respect and obedience from men and women around him.

2. The belief in the right to dominate and control, including, but not limited to, control over women.
He thinks that because he can shoot his mouth off and act machismo that I'm impressed and that she'll just bow down and do whatever he says.

Wow, Dave a guy's guy. but Steve takes it to another level. he's machismo.

Hispanic-Mexican slang - The word machismo ultimately boils down to a man who is beating his chest behaving as brash and arrogant as possible while really coming off as a cocky jerk of limited manners. This kind of man is not revered by women with a high IQ. It can be used as an indirect way to delivery a back-handed complement (double meaning) to a self absorbed man-boy who doesn't understand the current accepted meaning of the word (jerk) and doesn't want to believe he is not a nice guy, but is really just a jerk.
1. The supervisor's demeaning rudeness was unbelievable. After he left the office, one of the girls stupidly tried to defend him by saying that's just his machismo talking - he didn't mean it.

2. "Wow, He thinks machismo is a complement - but he doesn't understand that it means he's a jerk."
