Lets be real. Both of them lack prerequisitive knowledge on the topic.
On side note, 90% of the people that commented consider themselves as alphas by supposing that joe is alpha and the other guy is beta.

Half of these comments didn't watch it all. Once Rogan lets Adam finish making his point - Joe actually agrees with him.

@Fortress Europa conover makes the point that social heirachy changes in different situations. just because you are a considered an attractive alpha guy in your tiny town, doesn't mean you'll be considered an attractive alpha guy if you go the big city where you are surrounded by them. So therefore, he's saying the alpha/beta label isn't scientifically sound.

Not really. I fell like they were talking about different things. Reality is that, tall, good looking Hollywood actors can have sex with almost any woman they want and some short, ugly shy janitor cant have sex unless he pays a prostitute. Im simplifying the issue, but this is essentially what people talk about.

Well he raised a good point... What exactly is an alpha male? Imo alphas and probably work for beta makes for betas are the ones that had to work harder and over compensate. Harvey Weinstein is definitely a beta male...but is probably more dominant than any alpha due to his status and power ..the system technically doesn't exist. I use to think Jocks were alphas and my pops was like a jock ...but as I got older I realized he is the text book definition of a "weak beta male". This guy has a really good point.

TheMarshallZone - Day ago
I don't agree at all. You put that quarterback who is charismatic and has this beauty that admittedly we all value into a different situation chess club or DND group and he's going to thrive that's what an alpha is someone who can become the center of attention. And at the end of the day that quarterback is gonna walk away with the girl. As a society no matter where you go sports and athletics are valued above intelligence until you get out of this primal experience we all start off in. Look at highschool as an example, this is a very primal state of being and football has and will always be more popular than something like academics, that's why we have popular kids.

This dude is looking at everything through the lense of critiical theory. He believes every aspect of human society and psychology is a cultural phenomenon. Women only like strong men because they think wrong, men only like women with large breasts and birthing hips because they think wrong etc He is a complete ideologue.

Not sure why this is a controversial topic. Confident, fit people are attractive generally, but so is power, wealth etc. If you are going to argue about a basis in evolutionary biology it gets tricky. If the point is that someone is by nature alpha or beta, it could be true but we have the nature/nurture factors to contend with. Also if a so called beta male or female wins a lottery for $100M, would they suddenly become alpha? What about after 1 year when they are used to calling the shots? What if they lose all the money overnight? Do they become beta again? They can lose their confidence, health etc and become less attractive. If you decide to call yourself alpha and you are usually doing alright in social situations and you meet me (always quite confident, athletic and almost never back down physically or verbally) you might think of yourself as a beta, yet I don't consider myself alpha and I wouldn't think of you as a beta. Its stereotyping and assumes you know better than the other person in all situations (or even a single context for all time). Slavery was not right but it existed, similarly alpha/beta may exist as a social construct if we decide to let them exist. They are a type of mental model that puts down someone and generally not a good thing.

Some women may be drawn to strong, athletic men. But others can be drawn to a personality (in my case humor). I had a crush on my SO when he was obese, and I still like him for the same reasons after he's lost weight.

I like Joe, but this is really incorrect. These things are cultural, not evolutionary. I spent years in Korea and they do not regards large hips and buttocks as being attractive. There were islands that women were sexually aggressive and men were feminine. I promise some attractive guy on the beach and Mark Zuckerberg side by side. Most women would go to Mark for the security
Liam Brown
Liam Brown - Day ago
I can't speak for the dominant female islands but i feel like your experience in korea as women with large hips and buttocks not being attractive is in fact the other way around. It is a cultural preference and not an evolutionary one. If you type in google images "20000 ancient nude female art" you will see that the earliest cavemen humans were in fact attracted to big women with large breasts and a pregnancy bump. The pregnancy bump in the eyes of many anthropologists is evidence that we were attracted to these types of women due to their fertility as evolutionary purposes. This is what Joe likes to believe, and considering at the core an organisms desire no matter what it is to: 1. Survive and 2. Reproduce. Not saying this is fact, or that you can't have other preferences but it's just a baseline that is hypothesised based on ancient history, and has stood the test of time surprisingly well.

Maybe what Adam is trying to say it that in reality things are not quite like people (theoretically) see things in regard to alphas and betas. And yes - the majority of people tend to deforms and exaggerates things, usually for the "black and white" view of things, because this way can give the impression things are easier to understand.
For Joe's knowledge, the attraction for women boobs and ass its mainly a western convention. In some african countries, the physical trait of women that's attractive to men is calves, while in Japan is the back of the neck(that's why japanese women lower their kimono to reveal their neck, at least in kimono's age).

Is Adam speaking based off his opinion or some sort of research? Much of what Joe is saying is generally accurate by most research so I'm confused by what Adam is basing his statements off of.

Quite interesting argument would be from Africa(I am not sure if it is still true and I also heard it from 2nd hand)...but men there liked big women(lets call them a lil bit obese)...and it was attractive to them... it was also caused by social status that they had enough food etc. And skinny women seems like unhealthy to them.They got those convictions probably from their parents, they from their parents etc etc. Like in every social group people have created some kind of standards which vary among these groups. Also lets imaging 1930...or men and women looked guy in that age would be like noob agains somebody who go to gym. I myself would also choose somebody fit and not obese...cos I see it unhealthy...and I have negative association to being overweight. What do u guys think ?
Fortress Europa

Like people sense 10 fat rolls on your stomach and triple chin is unhealthy. When people say they like big women, they like someone who has huge ass, huge tits, but they're still tight. They dont have fucking fat rolls everywhere and a pig face.

Its not about skinny or fat, its about hourglass figure. Its a body shape. Big woman who has a hourglass figure is more desired than someone who has a pear shaped body. For evolutionary reasons.

Just google what types of physical changes a woman goes through when she’s pregnant to keep her mate present.
Increased red tone in lips
Larger lips
Larger breasts
Increased sex drive
Increased energy
This has nothing to do with evolution though. -___-

Adam is living proof of the backfire effect, he cannot accept the fact that a confident, well built man is more attractive than an introverted, out of shape dude.
Koogan H
Koogan H - 21 hour ago
@Mark Marin yeah but that's not always the case. I don't think a man is any less just because he lacks confidence or etc. Plenty of ain't shit people have those qualities and I would still view them as betas due to their personalities.
Mark Marin
Mark Marin - 21 hour ago
@Koogan H a confident, well built, extroverted dude is going to always be viewed more attractive than an introverted, out of shape dude with confidence problems. And I don't know where you live, but I assure you skinny ripped jeans are not going out of style
Koogan H
Koogan H - Day ago
But there are more factors to society that determine attraction... Apparently skinny ripped jeans is attractive... Now that phase is going away. There is no real science behind alpha and beta in humans. (With our current society)
