    How to deter criminals by projecting an "alpha male" aura

    This is a video on projecting alpha male status deterring criminal attacks.

    In most cases, bad guys don't want a fight. They seek to avoid "alpha males" and zero in on more submissive citizens. So one of the best ways to avoid becoming a victim is to project the characteristics of an alpha.

    This video is about 45 minutes, but it's worth watching all the way through.

    NOTE: The video is more or less family friendly, but some viewers may consider a few scenes mildly offensive or politically incorrect.
    It is long but what say you.

    2 things.

    I'm not from a monkey, and

    I don't think size is the defining thing.

    I'm not a big guy, but watching the big guy in the video made me so damn mad I had to stop watching at that point.
    He just hasn't ran across a small "Alpha male " yet.
    But when he does, he will give that beer back, and be glad too.

    But now that I've had a chance to cool a few degrees, and understand it's an experiment , I find it very interesting, lol.

    More into the video they bring out other things, beside size, having and showing Alpha status.

    While I agree on the not being from a monkey, I do think how your thinking and actions does set how others see and react to you.

    I look like a regular 46 year old guy.
    I appear to be unarmed (concealed means concealed) but that may not be the case.
    I'm not the "alpha male" and never have been; I'm the gray man.

    Kind of get this. Peole looking for prey (the weak) often do not bother me, and I am lucky. As glockman10mm posted above, size is not the real issue so much as sending the sublimital or overt message that if they attack you, they will get damaged.

    My wife laughs when her SA or my SA notices someone sizing us up (for example on the off-stip in Las Vegas) and we make it obvious that we are aware. They often cross the street (away from us) when I stop, stare at them, and back up to somthing providing me cover (from the rear, when avaiable = even a simple phone, light or signal pole). It sends a message.

    Now the younger = stupid and have not yet had the head split yet person has to think about it............. then I just shake my head in a 'no - no' fasion.

    The above works well, except when you are the minority.................... then different more aggressive tatics are needed, or just run like heck.

    Just because you CC does not give you the right to brandish or use a weapon as a deterrent to possible crime, unless it is at a point where it might be real crime as defined in each different state's laws/statutes.

    I'll pass that on to the next dead alpha-male I see.

    Baddest guy I ever knew had to stand on his tippy-toes to break 5'6". He'd make mince meat of most who try to be an alpha-male.

    I kinda get the psychology of it. And, one doesn't have to be a big guy to project the status. Just walk the walk.
