A person who rejects status and authority, believing that thinking for oneself is possible and desirable, and valuing freedom most.

This orientation puts them at odds with most people in society so Gammas tend to perceived as outsiders, but outsider status may or may not be important to their identity. Gammas tend to be comfortable alone, but have material sexual and social needs like all others. Their attitudes towards society tend to alternate towards disdain for "the herd"(Betas) and their cattle ranchers (Alphas), and a struggle to just accept people as they are and give up bitterness. Often they find a small group of other gammas and proud Betas to hang out with. In relations with Strong Alphas the outcome is usually mutual dislike that sometimes develops into grudging respect. In sexual relationships they can be clingy towards the few people they can relate to, use those they don't respect, or be very detached if they have found happiness in their personal pursuits. Socially, Gammas are usually nice but can turn vicious if their personal space is threatened. They reject prevailing morality, and can be extremely cynical and manipulative, or else "find their own way" often drifting towards a quasi-Buddhistic world view.

Gammas tend to derive satisfaction from their private sense of awe, beauty and mystery, rather than social acceptance or material things. The ability to find satisfaction in these things is often what keeps them going while being misfits in society.
Wolverine and the weird kid from American Beauty are Gamma Males, they are "their own people" doing their own thing and mostly want others just to stay the f away from them, unless they "get it". They will both probably retire to the desert and stare into the distance all day.

A late stage Sigma male who no longer feels the need to share his views with others. He simply acknowledges he’s smarter than the rest and there’s no changing him. Does not conform to your standards, extremely bread-able. He herds Lions not sheep’s. Also known as the manufacturer of red pills (yes it is real).
The guy with the Trump 2024 hat is the Sigma Male, the guy with the Reagan 2024 hat is the Gamma Male.

A Gamma Male is the third step down in the hierarchical taxonomy of the male sex, directly below a Beta Male and fathoms below an Alpha male. A Gamma Male unconsciously adopts or duplicates female behaviors, values, or expectations in the hopes of winning female admiration. He does this because he is too paralyzingly timid to attempt to directly win the affections of female through the Alpha Male traits of confidence and swagger.

The Gamma Male never appears confident or comfortable with whom he is. In a relationship with a female, he acts like one of her girlfriends. Further, the Gamma Male is wont to show his "feelings" in a cringe worthy manner, bringing audible sighs of shock and disgust from even the most unassertive and passive Beta Males. In comparison to other males of higher evolutionary development, he is a pitiful creature.
You know that screaming queen on 'The Bachelorette' who went and got a tattoo of a heart and a shield on his wrist to profess his undying devotion to the girl he had only known for a few weeks? Yeah, total Gamma Male.

Teddy: 'Oh my there's so many gammas in chat tonight, I'll have you know that I have been blogging since 2003'

Owen - Well if the gamma definition rings true than Owen is by definition a gamma male

A Gamma male is a fake Alpha male, he was unsuccessful as a beta getting girls and finding success and has turned to lifting and pretending to be superior than betas. They will still score with shallow women with no morality and are notable for having unprovoked hate towards anyone who doesn't buy into the false ego perspectives. A true Alpha male will gain women and success under any circumstances they are magnetic. A gamma male is a loser trying to pretend to be Alpha.
John lifts because he is insecure and can't get women to notice him. Now he hooks up with shallow skanks who cheat on him and give him STDs and he thinks he's Alpha. He's a try hard gamma male.

The third and lowest tier of male social hierarchy. Unlike the dominant alpha or the passive beta, the gamma male's hallmark traits are clinginess, possessiveness, and manipulation. Since he is unable to compete with men above his social tier, he is prone to isolating and manipulating girls, and failing that, throwing guilt trips to keep them on a short leash. While a gamma male is often a self-proclaimed "nice guy", his benevolence is merely a means to an end, which is usually trying to hook up with a girl he is obsessed with. Overly emotional and prone to feelings of unwarranted entitlement, the gamma male would rather blame all of his problems on other people than take responsibility for his own behavior. A truly worthless human being.
