Point of the title is: The less you stress yourself out over bullshit, the more attractive and "alpha" you are.

This doesn't necessarily mean people have to fight or combat stress (that which we resist persists), but simply, let it go.  Stop focusing on it and feeding it and making it stronger, b/c it's making you beta.

The less you worry about shit, the more fun you have, the more alpha you are and girls sense this on a real level.  Carefree you  = low-cortisol you = more alpha you.

The title isn't wrong.  Stress DOES make you beta.  It wears away the telomeres protecting your DNA, weakens your immune system, lowers testosterone, clouds your thinking, raises your blood pressure, makes you fat, etc.

But of course, you're not wrong when you say that being beta invites stress.  It goes both ways.  It's like a cyclic process and in order to break out of it you have to make a conscious decision to chill out and enforce a zero-tolerance policy toward mental bullshit.

Funny, some alphas I see are fully stressed and not relaxed, loose their temper easily and so on.
I have almost never been stressed. I have been so little stressed that people used to ask me about it. Did it get me girls? No.
I'll stick to what Jeffy wrote in his latest article.

"It's not just your rank, it's what your rank means in a society."

"We belong to multiple hierarchies."

"And you'd better bet you're going to have all sorts of psychological means to decide it's just a job, 9 to 5, that's not what the world is about. What the world is about is softball. I'm the head of my team. People look up to me. And you come out of that deciding you're on top of a hierarchy that matters to you."

That shit about the low-status baboons developing fat in the tummy region is funny. The overlap with humans is fucking insane. The dopey-type posture and the big belly xD
Very cool research this guy is doing. Also read his book, it's awesome.
It's a good demonstration of how the average society human is being put down to such a low status position.
People have completely lost touch with their natural sense of valuation of themselves.
People have come to view themselves as worth so little, so fragile and insecure.
That's why we need to empower each other more, remember each other to the fact that we are deserving, worthwhile people that can do valuable things and make contributions.
That's what Werner Erhard refers to as REAL DIGNITY:
(skip to 5:25)

Cool vid. Thanks for posting it up.

Question then is how can you lower stress levels? 

Meditation, positivity, being on your path, doing things your passionate about, working out, nutrition.....cant think of any others at the moment. My brain cells are dead from stressing out over school work lol

One thing i don't get is that it mentions the alpha male baboons have lower amounts of stress hormone, however when they ate that meat tainted with TB it was the alpha males that died and not the women/betas. Surely the lower levels of stress hormone would have meant the immune system was better in alphas rather than females and betas?

Anyhow, really interesting vid
