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.

The typical gamma male asserts dominance through respectfulness and sense of humour.

He's not your stereotypical greek-alphabetical male. He's sensitive and never crosses boundaries, making everyone feel safe in his presence.

He's an enjoyer of light-hearted jokes but he practises deeper humour as well. You could talk with him for hours about the Metaverse, Zuckerberg, the simulation theory, poems and such. He drinks a lot but alcohol never turns him into that drunken monster kind of guy. He's just a great man.
He probably plays Minecraft and writes poems. He underestimates himself, but it is your duty to make him feel loved.
- Hey, you've seen Nico? He's such a great guy.

- Yeah, he's a gamma male. We should start a new trend.

- Why not. The Gamma Male will take over the Sigma.

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.

Is nothing but a term that was made up by Teddy Spaghetti and stolen by Owen Benjamin so they can label everyone and everything that disagrees with their tyranny and cult like mentality of their followers
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
