The term 'Alpha Male' can be defined in both a classical and modern sense. The classical definition derives from the animal kingdom and represents a physical form of dominance over other males. The alpha male lion, for example, claims sexual rights to all females, fights off other male lions to enforce it, eats first after every hunt and dominates a vast territory of land for hunting rights.

In a modern/human sense, younger males (teens, early 20s) will subscribe to the classical form. Like a lion, they will often be the strongest, most intimidating, hit on all of the women beta males want, are usually the first to have new sexual experiences and often dominate a set territory in thier 'hunt' for new women, such as local nightclub scenes.

Older alpha males, however, will evolve the classical traits of stength, intimidation and dominance beyond the physical by gaining power over men through thier very means of living and professional reputation. A powerful business executive, for example, will hire, promote, demote and fire others according to how well they serve his own interests. Rock stars, famous actors and other individuals of 'power' hold very simular capabilities over others in thier respective professions.

Younger alpha males who cannot mature into the modern form will usually cling to the classical form of alpha-maleness for as long as possible.
Mike Tyson was the alpha-male of boxing until Evander Holyfield defeated him, while Bill Gates is currently the alpha male of the software industry.

The alpha male is an act that is performed by males usually in their teens and twenties who act tough, are loud, and have to be the center of attention or they feel insecure. When a man is successful and in his thirties he no longer acts this way because he has grown up and realized that the entire alpha male act is phony. When was the last time you saw a rich, successful man try to pick a fight??? Never. The only guys that do this are the losers that go to bars to take their anger out because they are angry inside for going nowhere in life.

An alpha male is, to put it in the most simplest way, powerful. That's it--the more powerful a male, the more of an alpha male he is. This power roots from his superior intelligence, as well as his superior physical stature.

People often associate the term "alpha male" with this sort of openly-overconfident male who is an outgoing extrovert. This isn't true. The allpha male would not have to rely on such socialising to attract people; the male who attracts people despite staying out of the spotlight and remaining silent is the real alpha male.
You're walking down the street and cross paths with a fairly muscular guy in dark clothes, looking down, right into your eyes so intimidatingly. He looks so quiet and reserved, yet so confident and definite. That guy was an alpha male and you probably now wanna get ravished by him in bed.
