In the animal kingdom there are those that lead and those that follow, the primal instinct takes over at times when decisions must be made and pack leaders will emerge to ensure the continuation of the group. In the human world those who exhibit this type of Alpha behavior are usually considered trendsetters or perhaps a successful business man, these kinds of individuals come from all walks of life and can look very different, but they all show the same similar alpha male characteristics.
