Hi WSO, a question that has puzzled me for some time is if so called "beta males" can be ever truly succesful.
To be clear, I'm not talking about those whiny little cuckbois who populate the social sciences departments of this world. No, I'm talking about those guys in your analyst class, you know, the ones who don't go out on a Friday night and act socially awkward in large groups. As a general rule in life, your success is not only determined by your abilities but more importantly by your attitude - a go-getter will get further in life than someone who does not seek out his own goals. But a counter example would be someone like Grampa Warren, who was very shy and awkward in his younger years.
The question now is: If you're such a "beta male" - if you prefer staying in on a Friday night, if you hate dealing with certain people, if you get uncomfortable with body contact etc - can you ever be succesful in life? And can you be succesful on the Street? What do you think?
